Charlie Montague was a self-styled creative genius...then he started getting creative with experimental surgery on himself.
Before joining the AEON Program, Charlie Montague was a renowned game developer who has won at least five Game of the Year Awards. He joined the program hoping to use the loop to refine his games and become an "Interaconteur".
Charlie viewed the game, Condition Detachment, which he designed specifically for Blackreef as the most important game ever created because it had to be able to entertain everyone in the timeloop for what was promised to be eternity. He worked his employees relentlessly in pursuit of perfection, refusing to reduce scope even when there was a high likelihood that the game wouldn't be complete prior to First Day.
Charlie asked Wenjie Evans to perform surgery on him in order to remove half his brain, in order to improve the computational power of his A.I., 2-B.I.T., which would function as a digital gamemaster of sorts. At Charlie's request, Wenjie removed the parts of his brain associated with empathy. The surgery had the expected outcome on Charlie's personality and resulted in the creation of a well-meaning but largely unintelligent and unassertive 2-B.I.T.
During his time with the AEON Program, Charlie has become romantically involved with fellow Visionary, Fia Zborowska, despite security instructions that Visionaries should avoid spending time with and fraternizing with other Visionaries. He appears to value his relationship with her more than any of his other accomplishments. The two of them have a secret rendezvous in the old Pumping Station in Fristad Rock every Afternoon.
Charlie is arrogant and, like most of the other Visionaries, seemingly self-assured. He considers himself a genius and a badass, at times referring to himself as "Charlie 'Fucking' Montague", which could be his actual nickname. Since his brain surgery, he lacks any empathy, although he maintains fondness for Fia Zborowska. In addition to this, both before and after his surgery, he saw Colt Vahn as nothing more than an "underqualified gun man", a notion that he would additionally program into 2-B.I.T., although the latter's view of Colt was eventually changed.
He might be more insecure than he lets on and has used the other Visionaries' voice prints to splice together Cassettes which make it sound like they are complimenting him on how great he is.
