Color Identity
Each character has a color identity associated with one or more colors from Magic: The Gathering. This color identity drives the character’s philosophy/outlook. So a Red character may be impulsive, a Black character might be greedy and a Blue-Black character devious.
Furthermore, spellcasters are aligned with the color wheel; so blue spellcasters don’t normally cast direct damaging spells and black casters often need to make some sort of sacrifice. Like in MTG, this is not a hard-fast rule, but a firm set of guidelines.

For a more detailed analysis of the color philosophies, I encourage you to read some articles on the subject written by Mark Rosewater, Magic’s Color Pie guru. This link connects to an article about Red. Within that article are links to similar articles about all of the colors and color pairs.
