Charles at the docks.


At some point before 1936, Charles entered a relationship with Lisa, Simon Johnson's wife, and the two began living together on the mainland.

On April 12th, 1936, Charles came to Sodor to visit his father, who had a present for him, but Charles never got to see it. He received a letter from Simon, telling Charles to meet him at the viaduct. When they met, the two argued for a moment, but then Simon tied Charles to the tracks, who was ran over and killed by Diesel.
