Charles is the Duke’s wrestler. An honorable fellow, he comes to dissuade Oliver from letting Orlando participate in the wrestling the next day.
As his reputation is at stake, he refuses to be gentle with any challenger, and thinks it only fair to warn a gentleman of the fact. Convinced by Oliver that if he does anything other than kill Orlando, the latter will poison him, he decides to fight him as best he can, and to give up wrestling if he does not win. Orlando beats him; and what he does with the rest of his life is not recorded.
