Charley was shot dead by Frank Darling and his fellow officers, before the Fiend entity departed he vowed to find a more suitable host next time.
The second host of the Fiend entity was Doug Herman, his hatred for Dragon was fueled by R. Richard Richards and his Chicago Voice newspaper. The new host was much stronger than last host, he beat Dragon until Doug realized that he had been tricked and lost his hatred for Dragon. He became weakened and was killed when Dragon snapped his neck.
Bonnie Harris was mother of Debbie, and blamed Dragon for her death. This made her the perfect host for the Fiend and he offered her a chance to be his host willingly. She agreed to get their revenge on Dragon, as the Fiend she was most powerful than with other hosts. Bonnie as fiend resurrected Debbie and other dead police officers to attack Dragon. Bonnie refused to kill Dragon because his soul would go to Heaven with her daughter.
