Let $G$ be a finite group with $n$ elements. Let $\rho\colon G \to \operatorname{GL}(V)$ be a linear representation of $G$, where $V$ is a finite dimensional $\Bbb C$-vector space.

The action extends to a ring homomorphism from the group ring $\Bbb C[G]$ to $\operatorname{End}(V)$, again denoted by $\rho$.

Given a general element $\gamma = \sum x_i g_i \in \Bbb C[G]$, I'm interested in the determinant of the linear map $\rho(\gamma)\colon V \to V$, as a homogeneous polynomial in $x_1, \dots, x_n$ of (homogeneous) degree $\dim V$.

In particular, is there an easy way to compute this polynomial from the character of the representation $\rho$?
