Default Indesign Boxed Character

I need to create a number of boxed letters like A in this image. I know how to do it with a small frame or table cell. I can do the reversed word with a rule.

Can anyone suggest a mechanism that keeps the big letter as paragraph text? I think I could do this in Ventura, but can't see a way in ID CS6.

You're not the first to wonder.

Interesting approach. Won't work for me, as I need a thick gray line around the box. The best I could do is a frame pasted inline with the text. Object style captures most of the specifics, except the size.
