  Charlie is an immunologist who used to work with Drake. Very little is known about him, but he certainly is a brave man - as he pointed out, he is one of the few people who is willing risk to such an extent to cooperate with Drake against his struggle with the Styx.

He is first introduced in Spiral, when he secretly meets with Drake at the market at Camden Lock in London. Charlie makes fun of Drake's diguise, claiming he was 'far too old to pull off the goth look'. Then, the two of them discuss the closure of three London hospitals and the loss of Elliott's blood samples with the Dominion vaccine. Drake asks him to prepare a new sample of the Dominion vaccine, and also to take care of another virus, which was actually the Plague of New Germania.

The virus was first only spread in water, but Charlie weaponized it, by making it transmittable by air in addition to direct contact. He also developed vaccines for every member of their group. The symptoms of the virus included lesions on the host's skin, fever, coughing up blood, insanity, and eventually death.
