He symbolizes the plight of the proletariat in the bay area .. the unsung heroes working hammer and nail to rebuild the devastation left by the terraforming event. He will never be forgotten!

First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the socialists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a socialist.

Then they came for Charlie,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't Charlie.

Then they came for me,
and there was no one left to speak for me.

He's an out of place NPC that accidentally made his way in. People have come to know and love him. And to a great dismay they announced he will be removed (killed off.......murdered) in the next patch.

Not if it wasn't added as part of a TV show Tie-in or episode mission.

I'd like to see him turn up in the show with tire tracks all over his orange vest complaining in the need/want about the number of bad drivers in the bay area.

Also I think if they really, really have to get rid of him the least they could do is put a little grave stone where he stands so that we may pay our respects. The grave has to destroy vehicles on contact though, his final revenge.

There are many "Charlies" all over the place still, it wasn't one person if you have gone to the spawn point you would notice that he spawns as a random person everytime he dies almost. His skin color changes almost everytime, stop this nonsense. If you miss the construction workers go to one of the other spawns where they wander around rather than that one bugged spawn spot.

"Charlie" was the first experiment with the EGO implant to survive. There were side effects; immortality in the form of almost instantaneous body recreation without destruction of the original body and a total loss of high level mental function.
As with most such experimentation, every attempt was made to "dispose" of the evidence, to no avail. When the scientists had given up on disposing of him, they equipped him with the "day glow" vest in an attempt to keep him from being run over,or otherwise accidentally not slain, and his unusual nature becoming a source of dangerous inquiry into their activities. He has long since outlived his actual creators, but the corp. which funded his creation is still around. He remains less than cogent and now they, Trion Worlds, think none really care how he came to be.

Trion is just worried that the populace at large shall discover their role in his creation and that they have this method of near immortality at their disposal. Thus they planned to shuttle him to some remote institution for storage. They thought that by acting like it was just some "clearing up the area" none would be the wiser.

"This is our planet! Charlie can Stay!" EMC mutant new war cry.

Went looking for Charlie last night, found the guy. Nice quite fellow gets on well with my quite Ark Hunter.

Why with so many other bugs in the game are they removing a guy just stood there mind his own business! This guy has survived Dark Matter patrols and Scrappers sweeping the area! Trion just move him to a nice safe place like the Crater!

Next Episode on Defiance - "The Search for Charlie!"

Evil forces have capture the much loved Charlie, Ark hunters of the bay area are searching high and low for him.

Reward: Title - We Saved Charlie, +5 Points and a Charlie outfit
Tasks:
1. Locate the data records - "Charlie must go", "The Snatch", "Take him to the dungeon"
2. Rescue Charlie from the dungeon / bunker.

Who's Charlie?

Whos Charlie you say? The lone worker of the wastes. The steely eyed sentinel of promise who's gaze is fixated on the future. A warrior of progress helping to rebuild the shattered wilds of San Francisco and bringing hope to all those who pass his way! His might and steadfastness (No really.. he can stop a runner!) hold a symbol of virtue for people of the bay area! This... this is Charlie!

This is a BIG thread and I haven't finished reading it yet, so apologies if its already came up.

I have a suggestion that'll probably get me banned for time wasting :) when we submit ingame bug reports it sends data to the devs about where we are, what's around us, game conditions etc right?

What if we all go see Charlie, stand next to him, submit a bug report that simply says 'Save Charlie'. This would have to get someone's attention!

Amen to this, please sticky. Will be changing my avatar shortly to this!

At the very least devs, put a cross there to mark his grave, where he has passed on (multiple times, may I add).

Quick guide to finding Charlie via the map:
On the map, there's a 3-way road junction that leads north to Woga Base, southwest to Alamo Park and southeast to Dolores Park (there's also a side-mission 130m north of this point - "It's Chinatown"). If you set a waypoint it should show 685m north of the Overpass fast travel point. He's standing there next to the red chemical puddle.

Great, now I am going to read them as Rob Snider doing the impression of Sly on the wall...

For centuries we have been building a civilisation of Gold and Steel! What has it given us? Peace? Understanding? Happiness? - Metropolis

It gave us Charlie.

I mean, have you ever actually seen your brain? - Ghost in the Shell

Charlie has.

The price we paid was the price men have always paid for achieving paradise in this life--we went soft, we lost our edge. - Dune

But, not Charlie.

Am not going to argue whether a machine can "really" be alive, "really" be self-aware. Is a virus self-aware? Nyet. How about oyster? I doubt it. A cat? Almost certainly. A human? Don't know about you, tovarishch, but I am. Somewhere along evolutionary chain from macromolecule to human brain self-awareness crept in. Psychologists assert it happens automatically whenever a brain acquires certain very high number of associational paths. Can't see it matters whether paths are protein or platinum.
("Soul?" Does a dog have a soul? How about cockroach?) - The Moon is a Harsh Mistress

Charlie knows who has a soul (all those that don't run over him repeatedly!)

This patch is here by dubbed 1.022 Charlie's Revenge. Take Charlie out the game he will break the patcher

Isn't that kind of what happened? Charlie left, and now we can hide in rocks and crates.

He has to be to keep falling and getting right back up! And glad nobody seems to be tired of my somewhat smart remarks in the Charlie posts. They liven it up and I am sure you agree with my constant point that he needs to stay and bring more people to the scenery.

thank you Trion for patching Charlie up, he was a real pain in the ***, I kept bumping into him when driving my bike, he seemed to be everywhere. His beaming "Hosenträger" looked ridiculous , so it destroyed the sinister atmosphere of the game, it became utterly unplayable for me.

He must have been of utmost priority cause he comes first in your patch notes, I am glad you listened to the complaints of your clients.

The minor point of region lock can be dealt with later, I would suggest patch .34 , It is merely a pretentious assumption on behalf of the gamer to assume that when playing a MMO you can choose with whomever you want to play with. I am grateful to trion that it enlightened me from this decision so I am not bothered with annoying incoming invitations of friends who are playing the game as well. Itīs much more fun roaming around on your own or teaming up with people you donīt know.

so glad you are aware of my problems have a nice day..

Sad thing is I didn't read up on the patch notes the day before, so I met a new friend who's never met Charlie before, so I brought him to meet my good 'ol friend who makes Bob the Builder look like a lazy bum. Then came the patch, and Charlie was gone. At least he and I got to share one last moment together with a new friend, I'll miss you Charlie, I'll never forget, and new comers will never know about your amazing feats. May all the Votan Gods smile upon you Charlie and may you haunt Varus for send us on a wild goose chase. I should've been there to save your ganchis.

Well, the thread is called "bring back Charlie!"
I hasn't lost its purpose now that Charlie is gone. On the contrary, now is when it should really come alive: you took Charlie - bring him back!

Why can't they give Charlie a purpose such as selling "special items" to us ark hunters?

Good question.
