Charlie was Guile's superior officer in the United States Air Force and also taught Guile most of his trademark moves. A member of a "secret elite military team", Charlie co-piloted a special mission into Thailand along with Guile. However, their mission backfired and they were both captured. They managed to escape, but Charlie became convinced that the enemy had had inside information from someone within the U.S. military and was determined to get to the bottom of it, seeking whoever had been behind the incident in Thailand.
In Street Fighter Alpha 2, Charlie encounters Rolento, who wants to know what Charlie's intentions are. When Charlie mentions Shadaloo, Rolento decides to stop him. Charlie eventually tracks down Bison to Brazil and confronts him near a waterfall. After the battle, Charlie interrogates Bison. Before he could get a response, he is shot from the back by his intended backup helicopter and falls from the waterfall. Bison does not see him as a threat and does not bother to confirm whether he died.
In Street Fighter Alpha 3, his ending shows him surviving the final battle and destroying Shadaloo's secret base. In Guile's SFA3 storyline, he is ordered by his superiors to track Charlie, who has supposedly gone AWOL. In reality, Charlie was undercover to investigate Shadaloo and its connection to the military, whereas Guile was sent to put a stop to him without knowing it. After realizing this, Guile teams up with Charlie and Chun-Li in order to destroy Bison's Psycho Drive while Bison's was regenerated after Ryu destroyed his body in the process. Guile escapes, while Charlie stays behind to hold off Bison and sacrifices his own life in order to destroy M. Bison permanently. In the Marvel VS series, Charlie's alter-ego is known as Shadow Charlie.

I'm one of them old school blokes who thought Charlie was cool back in 1995-1996 when he first appeared in SFA/SFA2. Charlie had huge shoes to fill when he took Guile's place in the early SFA series. He definitely had a cool vibe going on, both with his appearance and fighting style. His awesome, yet ridiculous hairstyle defines him, and the fact that he fights very similarly to Guile instantly made him intriguing and interesting in the series lore. (Yeah, he taught Guile everything he knows). Charlie also has his fair share of cool mannerisms & taunts... his "salute" is my personal favorite. "Too Easy..." 

After 20+ years, Charlie finally made his next-gen appearance in SFV. I had my reserves about the Franken-Charlie design... those head staples are humorously large. "Too Darkstalkers" if you ask me. However, his SFV redesign has grown on me. His new moveset definitely works, and I thought I'd hate his teleport move... but the fact that players can only use it sparingly makes it work. Plus it looks cool. Glad to see this guy still around. "Som... Som... Somasoooolt!"
