If K is a field and G a finitely generated multiplicative subgroup of K then every real valuation on K induces a character G → R. It is known that the set $\Delta(G) \subseteq R^n$ of all characters induced by valuations is polyhedral. We prove that Δ(G) satisfies a certain rigidity property and apply this to give a new and conceptual proof of the Brewster-Roseblade result  on the group of automorphisms of K stabilizing G.
