Selected answer:Here it is just another way of saying "kind".
Explanation:

It includes: any amount paid to settle any action; and any amount paid to satisfy a judgment. It also includes expenses of any kind. The words " and character whatsoever" are superfluous, they are just legal overkill, saying the same thing, kind, again with "character", and adding emphasis with "whatsoever".
