On December 23rd of 1943, Charles's father: Gron was getting ready to take Charles along with his little brother Jackson, and his wife Lynda to go to GPD for an early Christmas celebration! However, his father’s boss, Alison wouldn’t let this be a normal day for them. Alison was still furious at Gron for tampering with The Machine. He was thirsty for revenge. So as Charles and the rest of his family were getting ready in the car, Alison purposely smashed his car straight into Gron’s, severely injuring the whole family.
Several hours later, Charles and the rest of his family woke up in a hospital, where it was announced that Charles’s little brother Jackson would have to be taken away into a foster family due to the fact that Gron could no longer properly take care of him due to his many injuries, however Charles had the choice if he wanted to stay with his father or not, since he was old enough, so Charles decided to stay with his father.
However, Gron couldn’t bare to have to see his own child see him in so much pain, physically and mentally. So Gron decided it would be best if he left Charles for a couple days until he got better. On December 25th, Charles found a little note left by his father that read “Dear Charles, daddy won’t be home for a very long time… I did some things that I can't exactly explain to you since you are too young to understand. I'm sorry my little one, I will be back... soon... - Your daddy". Charles had no clue what to do alone now with his father gone. He only knew so much, he wasn’t ready for this. Several days later, Charles eventually committed suicide by hanging himself with a noose.
