I've finally started updating the character page, and I'll try to continue at the rate of one new entry every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday until I'm done. We've done Mr. Jones, Fathima, Kai, Basil, Cynthia, Debra, and Aisha; today, we turn to Charlie, the girl Rose has been working with at Greencoat Services. We've only seen her once thus far, but she'll be back. I've included the entry below, but it's also available on the "Characters" page.

As far as I can remember, the last character I need to add to the list is Rahim, another holdover from West of Bathurst. Am I missing anyone? I've hit the usual chain of fall migraines, and I'm also trying to teach four course, so I may not be 100% remembering everything I need to remember. If anyone can think of a named character who has had a speaking role and/or appeared more than once (for instance, Rose's other coworkers haven't yet been in the strip enough to merit entries), but whom I haven't covered, let me know.

A twelve-year-old girl with dark brown hair, light brown skin, and brown eyes sits in an electric wheelchair. She is dressed in a blue T-shirt, blue jeans, and brown shoes.Charlie

Full Name: Charlene Louise Alary

Date of Birth: March 1, 2011

She Is: Rose's client at Greencoat Services

She Has: Quite a bit of frustration, an equal amount of determination, a marble she found on the ground this one time, a love of squirrels

She Lacks: The words

Avoid Her If: You are the worst

Panel 1: Over at Fathima and Kai's apartment, Rose has just revealed her time-travel abilities to Fathima by appearing beside herself. She has also spilled the beans about how Iz has potentially got caught up in something time-travel related. The second Rose is gone now, and Rose is clasping her hands together and beginning to cry.

Fathima: What in the actual what?

Rose: I'm sorry I'm sorry I'm --

Panel 2:

Fathima: Rose. Stop. Give me a minute.

Panel 3: 

Fathima: Okay...time travel is possible, you can do it, it has effects you didn't expect, you've been keeping it from me because who would believe that anyway?, and you're probably carrying a huge mountain of guilt.

Panel 4: Fathima places a hand on Rose's arm.

Fathima: You poor kid.

Rose: I was expecting more screaming.

Alt-Text: Unsurprisingly, Fathima continues to be the best.
