For all we know, Charlie could be a female golden retriever puppy that happened to dig up the Arkendish one day and gained, among other things, preternatural intelligence [Unlikely...]

Well I think his handle (CharlsNChrg) precludes him being female. Of course, beyond that, I would agree that his race, appearance, stats, and everything else are a complete mystery.

moose o death wrote:wanda has already rezzed archons prior to decryption, i think you'll find charlie isn't all that attached to them. just the regular overlord/warlord to unit relationship.

To me, it is clear that one can't order mancers. Otherwise everybody would have a lookamancer. And the whole RCC, 6 different factions, did not have one.
Binty wrote:moose o death wrote:GK is build on a mining site. Is it plausible that Saline IV would have wanted a dirtamancer to aid the mining? Imo yes. If your capital has a tunnel system beneath it, would a dirtamancer have military value. Yes. Is a dirtamancer a generally usefully caster type? Yes. What is the likelihood that Saline IV wanted a dirtamancy? Imo high.

In any case, given we don't know much about the abilities of most caster types. The number of casters a side can have is probably very limited; upkeep and/or popping cost. I think it is over-reaching to claim all sides would have a lookamancer given choice.
parson4president wrote:Charlie is a mercenery and the best one around. He follows the money and the advantage. When he saw that GK was goin to hold its own he decided to take advantage and talk with hamster even though his troops were engaged with GK. Now that GK is the powerhouse Charlie will want to offer his services and always be on the strong side till it looks grim and back off. He never gets too invested in one customer or side and dosent care if they win or lose as long as at the end of the day he is still in charge of his kingdom and a little richer. If GK can get Stanley's head out of his own boop they will side with Charlie and use his advantage to move on toward dominance. Then worry about the sleeping beast that is CharlesinCharge when he is the only problem left or he decides to start something himself
