Portrait of a Character – Charles IV (Charlie) Tucker
Because, in canon, Tripp Tucker has somewhat odd experiences with offspring and, in the prime timeline and prime universe, dies childless, a lot of people like to give him offspring. As a result, I gave him both a prime universe and a Mirror Universe version of Charles IV, although they are not counterparts.
In the prime universe, Charlie is a part of the first kick back in time during the E2 timeline, and his mother is T’Pol. He has a twin named T’Les Elizabeth (that name has been used by other fanfiction writers). In the MU, Charlie’s mother is Beth Cutler, and his sister, Betsy, is younger and is not his twin.
Both fellows are pretty easy-going, although the interphased Charlie ends up as the captain of the Enterprise after Jonathan Archer‘s death.
In the first kick back in time, Charlie marries Ethan‘s daughter with the Ikaaran, Bithara. Their daughter is Daphne Tucker, and their granddaughters are T’Mir Ryan and Yoshiko Tucker. Their great-grandsons are Aidan and Steven Khan (sons of Yoshiko).
Takara Masterson Sato
In the MU timeline, with few options, Charlie and Takara end up being thrown together, and they end up becoming the grandparents of the heir to the Terran Empire, Charles VI, AKA The Emperor Charles I.
In the Mirror, Charlie’s theme song is Warren Zevon’s Trouble Waiting to Happen.
Charlie exists in the Mirror Universe in the prime timeline, and in the prime universe in the E2 timeline (first kick back in time only). However, the two men are not counterparts to each other.
“Captain, we didn’t make this. And neither did you. Or, rather, the other version of you. But it happened all the same. We did not think you would believe us. So we put together the notes that Charlotte has just sent you. Please, please, just open them and read them. And you will see that we are sincere.”
For a guy who isn’t supposed to exist at all, I like that Charlie gets some screen time. But I doubt I’ll write him much more unless it’s in the MU.
