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 innocent but she was simply too zealous.

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.
