Personality & Traits
Brought up to respect his parents and those adults around him, gave Charlie the perfect start in life for disciplining himself. Schooling was not easy for Charlie, but he made the best of what he had. Over time he has acquired skills on just about anything you can turn you're hand to. His way with people is very simple...they're nice and courteous to him, he is nice and courteous back. They're nasty to him...he nice and courteous back.
He refuses to be rankled by anyone who thinks they are his better. He let's them go on till they make a mistake, then steps in to help them out. Makes friends with ease, and is never frightened to go to any of his friends with his problems and to ask their advice. In his time with Starfleet, from his first class to his current assignment, one philosophy has always stuck with Charlie. "If something's worth doing, it's worth doing right..." He will always, always try to do it right, no matter what.
Strengths & Weaknesses
You need it, he can get it. You want it done, he can do it or get it done for you. One of the last of the old fashioned 'scroungers'. This is only in the needy sense of the good of his friends and crew mates.
Can turn his hand to most jobs. Once shown, he never forgets.
