Character Bio

Keith Charles photo
Keith Dwayne Charles (1968–2029), played by Mathew St. Patrick, is David's tempestuous lover, who has anger issues. Keith was born in 1968 in San Diego and attended West Point Military Academy, graduating with a degree in Criminology in 1989. David and Keith met at church. He was a police officer for nine years before having to leave the force following a violent incident, after which time he took up work in private security.

Keith begins dating David Fisher after meeting at a church social function around 2000. Their relationship ends briefly after David refuses to come out to his family and becomes deacon at his family church. Keith then begins dating Eddie, an EMT but their relationship also ends when Keith is forced to deal with his niece Taylor after his sister Karla goes into drug rehabilitation. David and Keith reunite. After Keith's sister Karla is arrested for hitting a homeless man and leaving the scene of the accident, Keith is forced to care for Taylor. Keith's parents then come and ask to care for Taylor. Keith refuses and sends his angered parents home. After Keith brutally beats a man during a domestic violence call he resigns from the Los Angeles Police Department and gives Taylor to his parents. He and David then go into couples counseling to sort out their issues. Keith begins work as a bodyguard to a pop music diva, Celeste (Michelle Trachtenberg), and does not come clean about his sexuality to co-workers. This infuriates David, since it is why Keith broke up with him 3 years prior. Keith soon comes out to Celeste and his partner, Javier, who offers to have sex with him. Instead, Celeste seduces Keith and the two end up having sex. The following day Keith leaves the tour and comes clean about his one-night stand to David. After David bites a man's ear at a sushi restaurant, Keith is offered to become the man's (who happens to be a prominent movie producer) bodyguard. David then decides that he wants to have children with Keith, which causes a debate between surrogacy and adoption. They end up adopting two brothers: Durrell and Anthony, whom Keith cannot stand at first. After they become adjusted, Keith begins to embrace his new family life.

Keith eventually owns his own security company, and dies in 2029, gunned down at age 61 during an armored car robbery. Keith returns in 2044 in a vision being young and healthy catching a football and smiling at David helping him ease peacefully into death.
