My char gets changed for apparently no reason


New Coder

I'm trying to learn pure C. I made a simple program with definitions of various variables there can be. Everything seems okay, but my char definied as "W" shows in the program as "h". I do not know why it is like that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The program:

#include <stdio.h>

int main(void)
    int integerVar = 100;
    float floatVar = 3.14;
    double doubleVar = 8.44e+11;
    char charVar = "W";
    _Bool boolVar = 0;
    printf("IntegerVar = %i\n", integerVar);
    printf("FloatVar = %f\n", floatVar);
    printf("DoubleVar = %e\n", doubleVar);
    printf("DoubleVar = %g\n", doubleVar);
    printf("CharVar = %c\n", charVar);
    printf("BoolVar = %i\n", boolVar);
    return 0;

My execution of this program:
