- "You can't do this to us! We're the A-Squad!"
- ―Charlie's final words before getting arrested[src]
Early work and disappearance
As A-Squad's leader, she dealt with more serious attacks on Newtech City and Earth. She destroyed the first of Broodwing's robots.
Before Emperor Gruumm attacked Earth, he sent his forces to the Helix Nebula in order to draw out the A-Squad. Charlie's team was dispatched, but shortly after, she sent a garbled distress signal as the team was overrun. SPD continued to search for the A-Squad but Anubis Cruger feared they'd been killed in action.
In reality, Charlie and her team had betrayed SPD and joined Gruumm - Charlie would later say that "everyone wants to be on a winning team". On his behalf, they attacked and slaughtered the SPD outpost on Gamma 4.
Resurface and arrest
Later, the squad faked having crashed on Gamma Orion and were "rescued" by the B-Squad (Charlie was annoyed at Jack for being surprised that she was "a girl"). Once they were back on Earth, Charlie kidnapped Cruger and took him to Gruumm's warship; she didn't care when Cruger denounced them as Rangers.
Her next act was to call out the B-Squad to meet them in battle, where Charlie and her Rangers pounded them into the dirt and mocked them. Unfortunately for Charlie, the B-Squad activated SWAT Mode and resorted to improvised battle tactics, and Charlie was taken down by Jack Landors. Charlie summoned a spare Zord to continue the fight and helped destroy the Delta Squad Megazord, but a rematch with the SWAT Megazord blew it to pieces.
Laying defeated and about to be arrested, Charlie was outraged by the idea that the A-Squad could possibly be beaten by their "inferiors" and said the B-Squad couldn't do this since they were A-Squad, but Jack didn't care saying that she and the rest of her team are being demoted before placing them in confinement cards and the A-Squad position was disbanded after B-Squad refused to accept the position of A-Squad.
- "You should listen to your Red Ranger and focus on your own problems."
After the events set into motion by the villanous Lord Drakkon caused the timeline to split into pocket universes, Drakkon attacked on the splinter world of the B-Squad Rangers were and later recruited Charlie along with the other A-Squad Rangers to his cause.
Charlie and other evil Rangers later arrived at the RPM World to attack the Rangers who opposed to Drakkon's forces, she interrupted the Rangers conversation claiming that they should stay focused before attacking them, Charlie started shooting at Scott Truman though the Rangers later managed to escape from the RPM World. When the events caused by Drakkon were erased, Charlie's timeline is restored.
Charlie was the greedy, arrogant, treacherous, sadistic, and self-serving leader of the A-Squad. She never interacted with the B-Squad Rangers (they didn't even know that she was a woman) and she showed arrogant contempt for them, saying that they're "not fit to shine their boots". Even Space Patrol Delta was unaware of her true personality, though Bridge Carson once noticed that something was "off" about her and her team's aura. However, despite her arrogance and confidence, she was also cowardly, as she actually feared to lose to the B-Squad and be captured.

- Charlie is noted as being the first female Red Ranger in the franchise's history. Bruce Kalish and Greg Aronowitz had asked if they could make the B-Squad Red Ranger a girl; Disney initially gave a very firm no and were uneasy about making A-Squad's Red a woman.
- The A-Squad helmets are copies of the Power Rangers in Space helmets, with the uniforms being recycled motocross gear.
- Charlie is the only A-Squad Ranger to have an official name mentioned; however, her name is only revealed in the credits.
- She is also the only A-Squad Ranger whose voice wasn't dubbed by a different person (not counting A-Squad Blue Ranger who was presumably mute).
- The UK's Jetix Magazine S.P.D. strip had a different finale to the show: there, Charlie was brainwashed instead of corrupted. The B-Squad defeated her team saved her and were later promoted to A-Squad themselves.
- A-Squad - the S.P.D. Ranger unit to which Charlie belongs.
- Jack Landors - the lower-ranked S.P.D. Ranger that defeated her.
- Andros/Kenta Date - the owner of this Ranger's helmet.
- Lauren Shiba/Kaoru Shiba - first female Red Power Ranger that is good and first female Sentai Red Ranger.
- Assam Asimov - the Evil Neo DekaRed with similar traits after the main event.
