Thank you. On further examination, I don't think the problem is with my
default character style. I think what has happened is my default
template is on its third or fourth generation, being inherited from the
OOo days. Over the years, I customized it so much that I think I'm just
now finding the "fruits" of all my past labors. Time to clean things up
a bit, I think.

Another off the wall question.
How does one change the font in the "Default Style" in character styles?
Right now, the font in my default character styles is "Century 731BT."
This is a font I used years ago, but haven't for quite some time. It
does not correspond to the "Basic Fonts" set in Options, nor does it
correspond to the font set in my default paragraph style.
That's odd... for me, using the default character style picks up the
font from the current paragraph style - so changing the paragraph
style should work. Perhaps you have a default template where the
paragraph style is initially set to something else, or the font is set
by direct formatting? So try ensuring the current paragraph style is
set to "Default Style", and do Format > Clear Direct Formatting.
Once you've fixed it, you can save the template (File > Save as
Template) and set it as default (File > New > Templates, select the
template, and click "Set as default").
If you can't fix the default template, or if it's easier to start
again from scratch, you should be able to reset it by going to File >
New > Templates > (cog icon) > Reset Default Template > Text Document.
If I right click on Default Style in character styles, my only option is
"New." Is the default character style font hard-coded somewhere? I've
not been able to find any way to change it.
I'm using LO 4.1.5 on Windows 7.
