A Signature is something that is the same for almost all the roles that the character plays. A Signature can be a catch phrase, a prop, a constant habit like flipping a coin or always wearing a hat, a certain combat move, a style of talking, or just a facial expression.

In order to arrange quires and booklets into a volume, a compiler would often mark each folio with a symbol indicating its place within the volume. Commonly, each quire will be allocated a letter (a / b / c and so on) and each folio within that quire will be allocated a number (i / ii / iii and so on); so the signatures on the completed volume will begin ai, aii, aiii, aiv in the first quire, bi, bii, biii, biv, in the next quire, and so on through the volume. The way that manuscripts are constructed from groupings of folios necessitates this system though often, especially in earlier manuscripts, the system of signatures that appears in a manuscript will be ad hoc.

This is a term that printing services use. It's not vital for you to know, but it adds to your familiarity with the process your project will undergo. Your book pages will be printed in a multiple of 4, and a signature is a single sheet that contains that number of pages, whether it is 8, 16, or 32. Before it sounds too confusing, if your printer mentions "four sixteens and an eight," it means your signatures will each contain 16 pages except for the last one, which will contain only 8. Both numbers are multiples of 4, and "four sixteens and an eight" means your book will have 72 pages. If your final document is not in a multiple of 4, the printer may ask to add a blank page (no charge) at the end to complete a signature by making it a multiple of four. Once printed, the signatures are folded and cut to the page size of your book.

'Perfect bound' books almost always fall apart before books with sewn signatures do.
A signature is a sheet of paper upon which a number of pages in some multiple of four are printed. This sheet is then folded to page size and forms a section of a book.

This process doesn't allow for the high quality control of most individual printed page systems.
