Chuck is a Caucasian male, with spiky brown hair and a goatee. He wears a gold earring on his right ear.

He also wears a matching green headband and wristbands along with two bands of leather tied around his right arm. Additionally, Chuck carries a large backpack and sunglasses.


Chuck was reckless and impulsive; being quick to act, but never to think.


Early life

He was originally good friends with Fred and the two had many adventures together. Due to his brash nature, Chuck tended to get them into trouble while Fred frequently had to use his wits to get them out of trouble. Over time the two separated, and Chuck continued his life as a daredevil, while Fred joined the Scooby-Doo gang.
