Could a Chinese Character be Cantonese, or Mandarin?

This is for a work of fiction; I want to get my details correct. I understand Cantonese and Mandarin are the two languages, Mandarin being the newer one. Could a Chinese character be one of these, perhaps Cantonese? Or is there another terminology that describes Chinese characters, and the word Cantonese just describes pronunciation? Thanks for any help.
