Charlie seems to have a Brother Tom
- Charlie apparently has an obsession with pickles as his refrigerator are mostly filled with jars.
- Charlie appears loosely based on real-life volcanologists, David Johnson and Harry Glicken, who were both killed in vulcanic eruptions. David Johnson in the eruption of St. Helens in 1980, Harry Glicken in the eruption of Mount Unzen in 1991.
