I'm not sure we know that.
I think we can conclude that that right now, Charlie is NOT one of the thinkamancers on the high council. But it doesn't mean he's not a thinkamancer at all, does it? Am I missing something in the update?
We are told "That reason was not part of the close-knit fraternity of Thinkamancers, but it knew their secrets and more. That reason had the whole world by its G-Strings. That reason called itself, "Charlie." "
It specifically says he's not part of the close-knit fraternity of Thinkamancers, but I took that to mean that he's just outside the favored circle - an outcast. Doesn't mean he's not a former Thinkamancer-turned-overlord, or something.
...oh, wait. I just reread it, and thoughout, Maggie calls him "it" . Presumably, if he were a thinkamancer, Maggie would know and call him "he" (or "she").
So I guess I see where you're coming from. I'm more convinced now, though I don't think the update is quite as clear on that point as you make it out to be. (Makes sense. Nothing's ever clear when it comes to Charlie.)
