Wall of fire has been cast on a unit which has a character. The character charges out of the unit. What happens? Does a) the character only take a hit, or b) the whole unit takes a hit, or c) something else. Even if 'a' is correct, I'd assume that the wall disappears and the unit is free to move without fear of getting blasted, right?

The casting player decides whether the character takes a hit and the spell ends, or whether the character leaves freely and the spell remains on the unit. See page 110.

Thanks, maybe I should try the 'search' function every once in a while.

So, if the character leaves and the casting player decides to leave the spell on the unit, the unit is not considered moving when redressing the ranks?

Correct: Redressing the ranks only happen after combat, to neaten up the formation because of losses.

A Character leaving or joining does not change the formation of the unit. It is just that the unit has one less member.
