The others are like animals, but I am very aware.
~ One of The Puppet's death lines in Ultimate Custom Night.

Charlotte Emily, also known as Charlie and later The Puppet, is a major character in the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise, serving as the main protagonist of the novel series and, as the Puppet/Lefty, one of the two secondary antagonists of the games.


Despite her sweetness and kind personality, Charlie has a type of independent/self-sufficient/scare personality, as she doesn't get captured by William, that may tell the reader she can fight back for herself. As seen in the book, she is the one who killed William in the Spring Bonnie's Suit, she finds it hard to trust people.

The games version of her as the Puppet states that she wanted to protect the inocent but she was simply too Zealous.


Charlie first appears in the novel The Silver Eyes as the main character.

Charlie is the daughter of Henry and an unnamed woman and Sammy's twin sister. On Halloween, 1982, Afton donned the Spring Bonnie suit, and he kidnapped and murdered Sammy, Charlie's twin brother, when they were both toddlers. While William Afton was suspected of committing this murder, he wasn't charged; as a result, the diner ends up closing down. In 1995, Charlie, now 17 years old returns to her childhood home of Hurricane, Utah to attend the launch of a scholarship dedicated to her school friend Michael Brooks, who went missing ten years earlier.

The game version of her as the Puppet first appears in Five Nights at Freddy's 2 as the main antagonist.

The Puppet later returns in Five nights at Freddy's 3 with a phantom version of her. In this she frees the murdered children and puts them to rest.

The Puppet's nightmare form called Nightmarionne appears in Five Nights at Freddy's 4.

The Puppet later returns in Five Nights at Freddy's: Pizza Simulator as Lefty alongside Springtrap, Molten Freddy and Circus baby.

The Marionette and all her incarnations return in Ultimate Custom Night antaognizing the player as some of the many animatronics in the game.

The Puppet and all versions of her appear in the non-canon game Fnaf World where she is a playable character.
