In Hasbro's Jurassic World toy line, she is the same as her movie depiction but is a darker green.
Charlie was created by InGen as an attraction for the IBRIS Project. She is the youngest of the park's Velociraptor pack consisting of Blue, Delta, and Echo. Her skin pattern is the result of using Green Iguana DNA in her genetic coding.In her birth, she imprinted on Owen Grady, who trained her along with her sisters.
Just before the incident occurred, Charlie and the rest of her pack attempted to strike Leon, a newly hired Jurassic World employee who had fallen into her pack's paddock, while trying to capture a pig that had escaped its holding pen. However, they were thwarted by their trainer in time to save Leon's life. Later that night, Charlie and her pack were outfitted with infrared cameras strapped to their heads and were used to stop the rampage of the genetic hybrid Indominus rex. When they found the hybrid, the I. rex began to communicate to them, becoming the leader of their pack, giving them the command to kill the humans that were following them. They followed this order and proceeded to attack the humans that were trying to stop the Indominus. Charlie pounced on an InGen Security Division trooper and dragged him away before killing him. While devouring the aforementioned trooper, she saw her trainer Owen Grady, who refused to shoot her. Charlie also hesitated to attack Owen due to their bond, staring at him in a curious matter rather than an aggressive manner. Seconds later, one of the InGen troopers fired a missile launcher at Charlie, killing her.
In 2018, Charlie, as already stated to be blown up by a missile, was confirmed dead, alongside Echo and Delta. Blue is the last surviving raptor of the pack. The only time she, Echo, and Delta are shown alive, is in a video of her and her pack being trained by Owen as infants at the beginning of the movie.
Because she was the youngest in Jurassic World's raptor pack, Charlie looked to the pack's leader Blue for guidance and commands during hunts. Charlie had such a high respect towards her leader that she gave up her meals to feed Blue.
Charlie's relationship with Owen isn't well known. However, when Owen refused to fire at, or harm her, Charlie in turn, simply stared at him, giving out small chirps, shortly before her demise.
Behind the scenes
When the Velociraptor sisters are first introduced, Charlie unknowingly hits Echo with her tail twice in the same scene. After that, she and Delta change sides around Blue.
It is odd that when Charlie was killed, none of her blood spattered all over Owen since he wasn't too far from her. This was most likely done to retain a PG-13 rating.
Charlie has the most pronounced lacrimal crests out of the entire Raptor Squad, being most similar to the Jurassic Park 3 Velociraptors.
