These two things are not something that is common knowledge. Especially his true nature as a Carny is likely something he wishes to conceal. And the fact that his daughter tried to kill him may not in of itself be valuable, but what she did and her reasons for it might be important.WarFAN wrote:What is so important about Charlie's past?

What is so important about Charlie's past?
We know he is a Carny, as is Jojo. We know he got an arkentool, as Stanley did. We know his daughter tried to kill him, just as Don's. We know he did some magic research here and there, as the casters who created the Perfect Warlord Spell. So what? Why any of this things is important?
Why did Charlie bind all FAQ under a contract of no-telling anybody this pitiful bits of absolutely superfluous gossips?

Lastly, you missed something important. Despite the fact that Jillian and WANDA know about the 'Shoes, they haven't mentioned them in the present. Charlie's deal might play a role in that.
- Why does he want to conceal [being a Carny]? Why it is important?
- [His daughter tried to kill him over an ideoligical disagreement. maybe.]

Like No-One said, such a deal would be horribly unreasonable if not outright impossible (even if it were accepted and the unit could convince themselves that the benefit of the deal fulfilled their Duty enough to offset the massive harm of such intel, that logic would stop working as soon as he left FAQ, since he is no longer on the side the benefited from the contract.). So from a plot perspective it's neigh impossible.
I think part of the reason might be because Decryption changes their mindset in the way most likely to evoke loyalty. Most people are loyal to their betters, but Jack's odd mindset might mean he isn't -- he's more loyal to someone he considers a friend or a fellow-traveler.fjolnir wrote:I think it is interesting though that while everyone else decrypted sees wanda as their better, Jack (so far) is the only one who processes his now elevated opinion of wanda and generates "equal" or "peer" which is telling in his choice to use "sister wanda".

You will never know. Every time someone gets close to telling Parson, Charlie will keep forcing new NDAs, and then story of erfworld ends. Have fun with THAT does of paranoia fuel. ;-P
