why charlie wants parson to join his side
charlie wants him as his heir.
it has been stated that erfworld people may croack naturally if they live for a really long time. we know that charlie never comes out of his tower, and he may live for millions of turns now. what if he gets old and croaks? he may want someone to carry on his buisness. although, it has to be someone who is smart, has great tactical and manipulatious skills, and so on. he may search for someone like that for quit a while. and there is parson! someone who knows like nobody else how to kick the ass of the enemy! the perfect heir for charlie.
charlie may still have hundereds of turns, but he will have to teach parson a lot, like how to hack tinkagrams and how you make a contract that is only good for you. (and much more, what we have seen and not seen in the comic.)
remember, this is 100% speculation. NO evidence.

(actually, I don't know exactly what 'stated' means. I thought it was the same as 'speculated', but it may actually mean 'abselutely sure'. I meant the first. my first words in english where four years ago, in the classroom, and they were not spoken outside the school walls that much.)

I doubt that ANYONE in all of Erf history put it all on the line to that degree, and was willing to destroy EVERYTHING to win . . . or die in the attempt. Remember, Parson basically set off a Genesis device (in Erf terms), and risked instant annihilation by fleeing to the MK. The fact that he survived this was probably even more shocking to Charley, and has scared the wadnips out of him. In Earth terms, it would be like having Cthulhu show up and trashing Area 51, then taking all the people and technology there and deploying it offensively.
Charlie either wants Parson firmly under his thumb or dead DEAD DEAD!!!!!, and is willing to do whatever it takes to either own him or pwn him. Either is acceptable. But a Parson running loose is NOT. The degree of alarm and fear that Charlie feels can only be compared to how Rupert Murdoch feels about Barak Obama, only with more justification.
