The Charlie wiki last edited by halovsmarvel on 07/16/13 10:32PM View full history


Charlie is the deceased war buddy of Guile in the Street Fighter series. Although he was pronounced dead before the events of Street Fighter 2, Charlie appeared as a playable character in Street Fighter Alpha which would be considered the prequel to Street Fighter 2. Charlie had been a first lieutenant of the U.S. Air Force where he met Guile and the two became close friends. Charlie would even teach Guile most of his techniques later revealing why their fighting styles are so similar. While Charlie and Guile are able to use the same moves Guile is still less experienced an example shown in how he needs two arms to unleash the sonic boom while Charlie only needs one.

Charlie was sent to by the U.S. government to track down M.Bison and unravel the corruption within the U.S. government and in his ending of Street Fighter Alpha, he is seen defeating Bison only to be caught by a sneak attack from behind. In the Alpha series of the games Charlie's death appears in many ways while in Alpha 3 it is shown that him and Guile defeat Bison together, but Charlie stays behind in an attempt to destroy the psycho drive and dies in the process, which results in Guile returning in the sequel Street Fighter 2 to avenge his fallen comrades death.
