The Silver Eyes
Charlotte Charlie Emily
The protagonist of the novels. Charlotte, also known by her nickname Charlie, is the daughter of the man who owned Freddy's and built the animatronics. Ten years after the murders, she and her friends decide to investigate the now-closed pizzeria after being unable to clear their minds of the horrors that went down there. See The Puppet for more info on her games continuity self.
- Ambiguous Situation: Despite being an android girl, she has a soul of her own, though whether this soul is an entirely new one as Baby claimed or the soul of the human Charlie is unknown.
- Her fate at the end of the series. She disappears after stabbing Baby and herself. A woman shows up at human Charlie's grave and smiles at John, reaching out to him as though she recognizes him. It's heavily implied that this may be Charlie after finally obtaining her adult form from Baby.
- Action Girl: When the animatronics go after her, she has no doors, animatronic head or the like to confront them, yet she manages to hold them off regardless. In addition, when a costumed Dave/William holds her hostage, she deliberately sets his costume's spring locks off. That's right - the first female protagonist in the series, and she kills the a main villain! Well, the first time that is. And if she's the Puppet in the game continuity, she's the closest the games have to a genuine Big Good, alongside her father.
- Badass Adorable: So cute, but she's definitely not one to be messed with - just ask Afton, Twisted Freddy, and Baby.
- Beauty Equals Goodness: She's a heroic android girl indistinguishable from normal humans and is referred to as beautiful more than once, even by Afton himself, a stark contrast with Afton and all the terrifying and villainous animatronics. Subverted with her gorgeous adult form (which Carlton constantly calls "Hot Charlie"), which is being used by Baby (Elizabeth) to assist Afton in his plans. Possibly Double Subverted by the end, if Charlie did indeed manage to claim her adult form.
- Canon Immigrant: If Cassette Man is a game-verse incarnation of Henry, then that would make his daughter (and the spirit haunting the Puppet) a similar incarnation of Charlie.
- Cute Machines: Still absolutely adorable, even if she is a Robot Girl.
- Dead All Along: The real Charlie, much to Henry's grief.
- Disney Death: The Twisted Ones wasn't the end of her, as it is soon revealed in The Fourth Closet that Aunt Jen saved her, presumably through some repairing. Her stabbing herself along with Baby may also count if the young woman who meets John at the end really is her.
- Dying Declaration of Love: She makes one to John after impaling Baby and herself, although he eventually finds out that she may not have truly died after all.
- Hero of Another Story: She's the main character of the book adaptation. And, potentially, working behind the scenes in the games as well.
- The Hero: The main protagonist and the one who consistently foils Afton's plans in the novels.
- The Hero Dies:
- Subverted. Curiosity gets the better of Charlie at the end of The Twisted Ones, and she ends up being accosted and seemingly crushed to death by Twisted Freddy. A woman resembling her shows up at the diner while her friends are mourning, but it's left ambiguous whether it's her. The Fourth Closet reveals that the girl at the end of The Twisted Ones is actually Williams daughter, Elizabeth Afton posing as her, using her adult body to take on her appearance. Charlie herself, however, is revealed to still be alive and under Aunt Jen's protection owing to her nature as an android.
- Pizzeria Simulator, if she IS the Puppet, kind of flits in and out of this one; she supposedly dies LONG before she gets to put Afton down, but she manages to come back as the Puppet and get the other souls to kill him the first time in 3, before bringing him down with her in the pizzeria fire at the end of the game.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Done simultaneously to herself and Baby (Elizabeth) in a Taking You with Me moment.
- The Power of Love: Charlie, if Elizabeth's words are true, doesn't have a human soul. What gave her a soul, and life with it, was Henry's love of his daughter, and his grief over her loss.
- Replacement Goldfish: Is one for the Charlie who William murdered.
- The Smurfette Principle: Charlotte is the only known protagonist in the series to be female. While the Fazbear's Fright guard has not been named or shown, thus leaving them partially unable for their sex to be identified, their hyperventilation is distinctively male-sounding and all the guards might be the same guy.
- Taking You with Me: Stabs Baby (Elizabeth) along with herself using the robot that her father Henry used to kill himself. Its, however, implied that this wasn't the end of Charlie.
- Tomato in the Mirror: The Fourth Closet reveals her to be a Robot Girl superficially indistinguishable from a human. Its revealed that Charlies memory of William kidnapping Sammy was false, and that she was the one that William killed, hence his line at the end of The Twisted Ones. After Charlie was killed, its revealed that Henry and Jen created a series of progressively aged robot bodies for who he thought was his daughter. Unfortunately, William knew about this, and tried to use this process for his own ambitions. When she dies in The Twisted Ones, shes back alive in The Fourth Closet, presumably due to her aunt taking her body and repairing her.
- Two First Names: The gravestone where the original Charlie was buried reveals that her surname is Emily.
- Nice Girl: Assuming that Cassette Man is Henry and therefore his daughter Charlotte was the girl who possessed the Puppet, Cassette Man's farewell speech in Pizzeria Simulator's good ending indicates that she was a considerate young girl who loved trying to help whoever she could.
- Not Quite Dead: As it turns out, being crushed by Twisted Freddy was not the end of her. She returned in The Fourth Closet to put a permanent end to Afton's plans and to stop Elizabeth's impersonation of herself.
- The Protagonist: Of the novel trilogy, though she's presumed dead for the first few chapters of The Fourth Closet until she is discovered miraculously alive due to being an android.
- Ridiculously Human Robots: She's revealed to be one in The Fourth Closet, which explains how she came back from being crushed by Twisted Freddy.
- Robot Girl: Albeit one who is indistinguishable from a normal human, and who contains a soul that can be transferred to more mature bodies as she grows up.
- Ship Tease: She has a lot with John. See her Dying Declaration of Love and her Ambiguous Situation at the end of the series.
- Uncertain Doom: After stabbing Baby and herself, her final fate is uncertain, however, a young woman appearing at human Charlie's grave site who appears to recognize John brings about implications that we haven't seen the last of her.
- Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Before all of the shit that went down at Freddy's, her father's suicide, and her brother Sammy being killed in the incident at Fredbear's, Charlie was a cheerful little girl. In her teens and on, she's much more sullen. And if she's the spirit possessing the Puppet in the games' canon, she became a great deal more bloodthirsty.
- Walking Spoiler: Not so much for anything that happens in the books, but when you're the child haunting the Puppet in the games, it's hard to be much beyond this.
- We Can Rebuild Him: Aunt Jen repaired her after she "died" from her encounter with Twisted Freddy.

- Driven to Suicide: Programmed one of his robots to kill him after he realized the Charlie he created is a robot, and not his daughter in a robot body.
- Two First Names: With Charlies surname revealed to be Emily, this also reveals Henrys surname as well. Also applies to Gender-Blender Name.
- Posthumous Character: Dead before the book's present events.

William Afton aka Dave Miller / Springtrap
The Twisted Ones
Twisted AnimatronicsAnimatronics that only exist in the book series, they are actually otherwise normal animatronics... with the exception of a device that's been implanted in them. When activated, this device releases a sound that is (usually) too high-pitched for the conscious mind to perceive; this sound messes with the audience's brains, making them fully see the robot as what they believe them to be. So to a normal person, Freddy the robot bear would simply be Freddy the anthropomorphic bear. However, to anyone that's afraid of these robots, they instead become the stuff of nightmares.
- Brown Note: Constantly emit one, which explains their appearance; once it's turned off, they go back to being normal animatronics. It should be noted that the note in question isn't inherently malicious, but simply amplifies the person's natural disposition and perception of the object in question; i.e. good becomes great, bad becomes worse.
- Canon Foreigner: ...Maybe? There are hints in 6 that they might be part of the game's universe as well.
- Hero Killer: Twisted Freddy manages this on Charlie... or so it seemed, initially.
- More Teeth than the Osmond Family: They all have mouths full of sharp teeth.
- Original Generation: Downplayed: the gang sees deactivated animatronics of things like a wolf and an ape, but they aren't expounded upon.
The Fourth Closet
Elizabeth Afton / Circus BabyThe novel versions of Circus Baby and William Afton's daughter, who have also merged into one entity.
- The Dragon: For William.
- The Heavy: In The Fourth Closet.
- Identical Stranger: In this continuity, Baby uses a near-exact replica of Charlie's (young adult) body and attempted to steal her identity after Charlie apparently dies at the end of The Twisted Ones.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Done by Charlie in a Taking You with Me moment.
- Robot Girl: More pronounced in this version as she's not an animatronic but a human-looking android.
