The Cambridge International dictionary of English defines 'charm' as;
A *quality* I think is the important word here. Now Willoughby is said to be charming, but 'that' is really *not* his quality. What he has is, again according to the same dictionary, and as I see it, is;
My conclusion is that while Col. Brandon is charm itself, Willoughby uses it *intentionally* as something that is not a part of him - like a weapon.
So after settling this I proceeded further, and found out that as a reader I am absolutely charmed by Brandon's total personality, which is a *quality* he never loses.
We have been discussing all his qualities these past weeks, so I won't repeat them, but one could really write a long list of all the *qualities* of the Colonel which *make him attractive* - thus qualifying him as one who fits the definition of 'charming'.
