During the pursuit of the Nightrider, Charlie and Roop crash "The Big Bopper" into a towed civilian caravan, totalling the car. During the collision, Charlie is hit in the throat with a saucepan resulting in severe damage to his larynx and an inability to thereafter speak naturally. He later uses a speaking-aid device held to his throat (an electrolarynx) to amplify his voice.
According to the revised timeline presented in 2015 Mad Max prequel comic books, him, along with Roop and the other MFP members became Marauders after the Apocalypse. The crew attacked The People Eater's tribe before he was spotted by Colonel Joe Moore.
