Character Bio

Charlie Francis photo
Charles "Charlie" Francis is an FBI Special Agent, who holds the position of a supervisor. He is married and almost ready to start a family. He is close friends with John Scott and Olivia. Olivia often comes to him with requests for manpower and other resources. Charlie is later promoted to Second-In-Command of the Fringe division, making him the immediate subordinate of Broyles.

In the seaeson premiere of season 2, Charlie is killed by a shapeshifter who takes his place and burns his body in a hospital furnace. The shapeshifter maintains his identity for some time until it learns the location of Newton, after which Olivia is forced to kill it. Charlie's death weighs heavily on Olivia's guilt. She later receives a post-mortem message from him in the form of a series of seemingly random letters that arrange to form the first sentence Charlie ever told her. "You're gonna be fine".

After prime Charlie is killed in 2.01 and the shapeshifter is killed in 2.04, Charlie appears frequently in 2.11, a seeming continuity error. This can be explained, as the episode was originally filmed with season 1 but was not released until January mid-season 2.

The Other Universe version of Charlie Francis is alive and an agent of the alternate and more powerful Fringe division. The alternative Charlie ("alt-Charlie") shares many of the same traits as the prime version, although he is slightly more crass and has a small scar beneath his left eye. He also suffers from a parasite infestation in his body, a fate averted by the prime universe's Charlie in the first season episode "Unleashed".
