Charlie is an antagonist first encountered in Issue 61 of Image Comics' The Walking Dead and is one of the six cannibalistic Hunters who were tracking down Rick Grimes's group on their journey to Washington, D.C.. He serves as an antagonist for Volume 11: Fear The Hunters.
Nothing is known about Charlie's life before or as the outbreak began.
Charlie was one of six cannibalistic survivors who stalked and preyed upon other living humans, namely the weak or isolated, for sustenance. Not much of his personality was revealed, only that he, like the others, listened to and obeyed the group's leader, Chris.
Like his peers, Charlie had initially become a cannibal, due to the circumstances of the new world and the scarcity of food; however, the extent of how much he agreed with his group's actions is unknown. Chris had revealed to Rick that they had eaten their own children to survive, and it is unknown if Charlie had any children that was part of the re-telling.
Charlie seemed to one of the more active Hunters, having been one of the three who stalked Rick Grimes's group and one of the two, the other being Greg, that abducted Dale. He was the one who watched the group as they took refuge in the church, and failed to follow Rick, Andrea, Michonne, Abraham Ford, and Gabriel Stokes, because he believed the weaker group still remaining in the church was the most important.
His decision consequently cost his group their lives, as the Hunters realized when Rick and his survivors, who had left the church, ambushed the Hunters in their own home.
In the end, Charlie and the other Hunters were mutilated and beaten to death by Rick and the others to avenge what they had done to Dale and all of their previous victims. Then, his body was later burned, along with the rest of his group.
After surrendering, Chris tries getting Rick to spare them, but Rick refuses and he alongside Andrea, Michonne and Abraham proceed to mutilate and beat the hunters to death, including Charlie.
This list shows the victims Charlie has killed:
- Numerous counts of zombies and unnamed people
- Charlie was the only Hunter not to have not his name explicitly mentioned during his time in the comic series; his name came from The Walking Dead website later on.
- Charlie is also the first character in the comics to have their name revealed in somewhere else than in the comic itself, others being Gavin, Marco, Reggie, Craig, Andy, Liam, Carlos, Patrick and Sandra.
