Brother to the late Earl and uncle to Jack, the new Earl, Charles considers it is his family duty to get rid of Jack and take over the estate. He bickers with his wife Claire about how to eliminate his nephew and enlists the aid of his mistress to marry Jack and produce a legal heir he can control. He doesn't mind giving up his mistress, not being "the sensitive type," and is willing to sacrifice anything "for the family"—or rather for his own gain. He is blind to his wife's affair with Dr. Herder and his own son, Dinsdale, is a disappointment to him.
