    Because a lot of the time in books a character is described in dialogue

    Because a "character’s comments about himself or herself" is just what the character thinks or says about themselves. It could be a lie. Like if the protagonist (they're human for this example) says they are a dragon when in fact they're human. "Unveiling the thoughts and actions of the character" covers all bases when it comes to a story.

    The character's opinion and the fact of the story aren't always on the same level.
