I have a quick question: I have a character released under license CC-BY-SA. If someone uses it for their own work, are they supposed to release said work under the same license or this applies to the character only?

I am not a layer, but the work can only really be incorporated into a larger work if that larger work has a compatible license. In the case of Share-alike, I'm certain that's the share-alike license. There are code projects that release their art dual licensed gpl and share-alike to make sure they're doing the right thing for licensing. Other have treated them separately in different repositories.
