8) Is he a particular person (rather than a type of person)? Yes/no.

I started with a particular person in mind, but soon decided to accept any person of the same type as an answer. The exceptions I mentioned on some of the earlier questions are largely to be attributed to the latter option.

Does he have limited colour vision?

12) Does he have limited colour vision? No.

As stated before, I'll accept a somewhat more generic answer than I originally had in mind, and in this respect the answers to questions 6 and 12 are essentially non-essential.

Having established that the character is not from Shades of Grey, is he, now he/she a generic?

I'm going to try to put everybody's (everybody??) mind at rest by guessing (are you all ready) a member of the Goliath Corp.
