Tone is the author's attitude toward their subject.  When considering a character's tone, it would be that character's attitude toward the subject.  The subject can be what, or whom, the author is writing about or it can be whom the character is speaking to or about.  Tone answers the questions: "How does the author/character feel about the subject?"  "How are they treating the subject?"
