Title or Position:
Charles is a very handsome man who appears to be in his 60s or 70s. He is around six feet tall, with an average build, thinning grey hair and bright blue eyes. He usually wears expensive suits, dress shirts and ties and carries himself with an air of confidence at all times.
Murmurs can suddenly be heard in the background like a Greek chorus announcing an unhappy fate as shadowy female faces appear and look as though they are judging you.
