Charles "Charlie" Miller is a ESD pilot and a friend of Jake Morrison.
Recollecting his life, he claimed that he was the youngest valedictorian in the academy and would go wherever he wished, but as Jake was the only family he ever knew, he followed him when he was reassigned to the ESD Moon Base as a Moon Tug pilot. He found the population of 36 women very limiting to his standards, although it's possible that they had rejected him first.
War of 2016Edit
Jake and Charles were driving a Tug in a formation, in order to install a space cannon. While Charlie was ranting, he neglected the controls, and their Tug collided with the cannon causing it to lose its balance and lean towards the base. Jake made an improvisional maneuver that pushed the cannon back in its locaton, and then took responsibility for the mistake.
