Family: Charlie's family migrated from the Caribbean Islands to England in the 1930s and settled in Crawley. As oldest of five siblings, Charlie had to take responsibility at an early age. His mother was a stay-at-home wife and his father worked in a factory, a job which soon took his life after he had became terribly ill. After that, Charlie had take the role as the "man" of the house.
Job: History had always been something that peaked his interest, but society around him constantly made him feel stupid and inferior, too ignorant to enjoy the complexity of the old world. But after seeing the cruel racism his father suffered from in his factory job, a job that was only fitting for an "immigrant", Charlie swore that would never be him. Adopting a white family member's last name to avoid early prejudice, he grafted hard to get the dream job he wanted. No matter what the world threw at him, the harsh obscenities and disgusting words, Charlie wasn't phased. He successfully graduated from the University of Oxford with a history degree and soon became a historian who worked with the Museum of London. He doubled as an author who wrote history books that centred around old legends and mythology that were popular amongst the education system.
