Character Link not working

I'm trying to link a charakter to an Adventure log. In total it's 4 Chars, and three are working fine but the last one won't work.
I'm using the Character Link button, and this is how the working ones look like: *[[:jonas-jammer | Jonas “Jammer”Jenkins]]*
but the last one looks different: [[:null | Dr. Amanda Sunny]] - the * at the beginnig and the end are missing and the null is kind of strange.
I tried to put in the * and the Name manually like dr-amanda-sunny or dr.-amanda-sunny, but it is not working.
Anyone any suggestions what the problem is or any solution to this problem?

    Solved it with
    *<a href="/">Dr. Amanda Sunny</a>*
    but why is her Char Link a Number instead of a name?

    ok works with the number,too

    *[[:857412 | Dr. Amanda Sunny]]*

    The issue is that there's a period in the character's name. The system could and should handle it more gracefully, but until it does, the number is your best bet.

    As an aside, the surrounding * characters just make the text of the link bold.
