Alternate Version    

Charlie Francis works as a field agent in the parallel universe Fringe Division.


In The Road Not Taken, he is in charge of the hectic activities in the situation room in Olivia's Cortexiphan vision of the parallel universe Federal Building. He has a noticeable scar on his face as he barks orders to the busy alternate reality agents as they mobilize.

In Over There, Part 1, he and Bolivia are tasked with Lincoln Lee, with SecDef authority, to apprehend Walter and the Cortexiphan Test subjects.

In Over There, Part 2, he and Bolivia are tasked to apprehend William Bell, Walter and Olivia.
Common Scars

In Olivia, he works with Lincoln Lee to recapture the escaped Olivia Dunham.

In The Plateau, he expresses his feeling of uneasiness with Olivia to Captain Lee. When Olivia fails to remember that the system was upgraded a month earlier, he tests her memory of their shared personal encounter at Coney Island.

In Amber 31422, he says his first partner was caught in Amber during a quarantine in Boston. He desires to be left as is if he ever gets stuck in amber.

In The Abducted, he disagrees with Fringe Division taking over abduction cases. He also comments that it is impossible for Toomy to carry out the attack without proper scientific knowledge.

In Immortality, he is teased by Bolivia after Mona Foster shows signs of interest in him, supposedly because he's 'got bugs in his blood'.

In Bloodline, he admits going out for tea with Mona Foster. He doubts Secretary Bishop after learning Bolivia's secret missions hidden from them.

In One Night In October, Captain Lee mentions that Charlie is on leave with Bug Lady.


  • "Livvy, this job isn't what it was ten years ago. You’ve got alternate universes. I mean, it just -- just wasn't part of my training, you know? I mean, how are we supposed to fight these people? Truth is, Livvy, this makes me feel obsolete, you know?" - (complaining to Olivia, much in the same manner as his counterpart did in this universe)
