My understanding is that we get to choose characters *after* seeing which two cards each person gets. But is the seating order determined before or after that? I'm especially interested in the case where there are two people playing a total of four characters--do you fix the order of your card piles in advance?

You decide seating order before starting the game, first player is selected randomly and then turn order is clockwise. Otherwise I think it would be too metagamey.

It's in item 10 of the game setup, after everything else and just before starting the game.
And you should draw it by random.

No - that's the choice of starting player, not player order.

The question being asked is... suppose you have three players: Alice, Bob and Charles. At what point must they choose whether to sit around the table clockwise as Alice, Bob then Charles or Alice, Charles then Bob?

I believe it happens during step 7 during choosing characters. If players want to play different characters, they can get up and shuffle around.

Starting player remains random and step 10, so Alice might not start.
