Charlotte "Charlie" Matheson is the daughter of Ben and Rachel Matheson, the sister of Danny and the niece of Miles Matheson.


Early life

When Charlie was young she was watching TV when the power went out. A week later when her family was leaving the city, she was held by a man who threatened to hurt her if her mother did not give over their food. She moved with her family to a village near Chicago and lived there for 15 years. She would go out with her brother to find various pieces from before the blackout when Danny was exposed to a large amount of dust and due to his asthma had to be taken back home and treated. (Pilot, Chained Heat)

Search for Danny

Charlie is attacked

When the militia arrived and killed her father she went with Maggie and Aaron to Chicago to find Miles. On the way there she ran into Nate Walker and later they were attacked by a group of bandits where Charlie was almost raped but was saved by Nate. Later she and the others arrived in Chicago and located Miles, but he refused to go with them to rescue Danny. She convinced the others to stay behind and then protect Miles from the militia soldiers. When one of the militia attacked her she was again saved by Nate. (Pilot)

Charlie and Nora make bombs

She went with Miles and the others to Pontiac to locate a woman called Nora but when she and the others were almost hurt, he decided to locate Nora on his own, so Charlie followed him. On the way she heard someone following her and set a trap, pretending to injure herself and discovered that Nate had been following her. She handcuffed him to a pole and left him there, eventually catching up to Miles and they saw a group of Militia prisoners. When Miles freed Nora, Charlie volunteered to be the one to shoot the Warden, using an improvised weapon that Nora built. She pretended to be a lost hunter and was brought before the Warden, shooting and killing him, she tried to gain the Warden's rifle but was tackled by one of the militia. She fought with him and gained the upper hand, using the rifle to shoot him dead. After this she regretted having to kill the two men. (Chained Heat)

Charlie went with Miles and Nora to the rebel base at the Lone Pine Mall. There she was called over to help a man who was bleeding out, only for him to die in front of her. She wanted to help the injured rebels despite Miles' warnings that the Militia could arrive at any minute. When the Militia did attack, Charlie helped Nora build bombs and rig them to the doors. When the militia did storm the base, Charlie picked up a piece of pipe and helped fight them off. After Miles gave himself up to save the others, Charlie and Nora went ahead and rigged more explosives to a bridge to help free him from militia capture. Charlie dropped an explosive package on the bridge and then fired a flaming arrow at it, destroying part of the bridge and cutting the militia off from them. (No Quarter)

Charlie tries to rescue Danny

Continuing on their way they came across a Militia way station and Charlie snuck in and stole some supplies, deliberately gaining the attention of the guard, who chased her into the woods. Miles got the guard to tell him where Neville was and the group continued. Charlie asked Miles about the fear she saw in the guard when he heard Miles' name but Miles refused to tell her anything. They reunited with Maggie and Aaron in Lowell, Indiana and were heading through the city when they were chased by some dogs. The group entered an abandoned amusement park and Maggie was injured by a man. Charlie was going to help Aaron sew up Maggie's artery but she was taken by the man who tied a crossbow trigger to a door handle and positioned Charlie in front of it. She managed to swing out of the way as Miles and Nate came in looking for her. She went back to help Maggie but it was too late and Maggie died. (The Plague Dogs)

Charlie works for Drexel

Charlie and the group came to Noblesville, Indiana where they discovered that the Militia had repaired a steam train in order to quickly move Danny to Philadelphia. Charlie, Miles and Nora head out to perform reconnaissance on the Militia and locate Danny. Charlie is questioned by Neville when she appears to be checking out a store, however she tells him that she is watching her boyfriend in the reflection. Afterwards she decides to follow Captain Neville and was caught so Miles was forced to fight with Neville, until more Militia came. When Neville steps up moving Danny, Charlie and Miles commandeer horses and give chase to the train. Charlie locates Danny, who notices his sister peering through the window, and he attacks Neville, giving Charlie time to break into the train. Charlie fights with Neville but is knocked down and captured by Nate, who violates orders and throws her off the train. (Soul Train)

With Nora's wound becoming infected, Charlie and the group stole a Militia wagon and headed to see Drexel, an old acquaintance of Miles. When they arrived, Drexel pointed a gun at Miles' head and threatened to kill him, however the gun was not loaded and Drexel was only joking. Charlie took a bath at Drexel's Manor, slowing down enough to think over the past few weeks then violently tore up her postcard collection. As payment for helping Nora, Drexel had Charlie go undercover to kill Bill O'Halloran, an enemy of Drexel. Charlie got an audience with him by claiming to be one of Drexel's girls with information on him. She knocked him out and was about to kill him when Miles stepped in and stopped her. The two escaped the O'Halloran place and met up with Aaron and Nora on the road. (Sex and Drugs)
