I will break this chain and then you'll die slowly!
— Chuck threatens Michael Tapp[src]

Chuck is a fictional character from the Saw franchise. He serves as a minor antagonist in Saw II: Flesh & Blood.

Biography

Early Life

Chuck was a dealer who sold drugs to other people, such as Robert, his best customer, who trusted him unconditionally. He was later arrested by Detective David Tapp. However, Chuck also incriminated Robert in an attempt to receive a lighter sentence. Therefore, Robert was sent to prison as well. After serving his sentence, Chuck was released from jail. (Saw II: Flesh & Blood)

Abduction

Due to his crimes and his dishonesty, he was eventually targeted by John Kramer, better known as the Jigsaw Killer. After his abduction, Chuck was taken to an abandoned chemical plant. He was trapped in a small room and chained to a metal column while standing in a puddle of water. (Saw II: Flesh & Blood)

Test

When he woke up again, Chuck realized that he had been kidnapped. A recorded message left on an answering machine confronted him with his crimes and his betrayal of Robert. It also informed him that the only way to free himself was to take someone else with him to the column. However, he had several sharp, pointy razor blades pierced through his forearms and therefore had to be careful not to kill that person. (Saw II: Flesh & Blood)

Death

Chuck attacks Michael

Eventually, Michael Tapp, the son of Detective Tapp, made his way to the area where Chuck was trapped while facing one of Jigsaw's games on his own. Michael proceeded through an adjacent hallway when, suddenly, a roller door opened in front of him. Behind it was Chuck, who immediately charged at him. However, the length of the chain around his neck allowed him to move forward to a certain distance of only a few meters. At regular intervals, a mechanism was activated, and Chuck was pulled back again. While trying to grab him, he aggressively yelled at Michael and threatened to kill him. As the chain pulled Chuck back, Michael embraced his opportunity and reached a set of four small combination locks. By bringing the four numbers in the right order, starting with the smallest number and concluding with the highest, Michael energized the water. Moments later, Chuck was pulled back into the puddle again, where he was electrocuted. (Saw II: Flesh & Blood)

Personality

Chuck was an untrustworthy and amoral individual. As a drug dealer, he took advantage of his customers' addiction to make a profit and establish a bond of trust with them. However, if it served him in any way, he didn't hesitate to betray his customers, as seen when he framed Robert in an attempt to get a lighter sentence for his own crimes. When doing so, Chuck felt no remorse for his actions.

Furthermore, Chuck was a brutal and violent person, which became apparent during his encounter with Michael Tapp. Upon facing him, he acted angry and aggressive and didn't hesitate to assault the latter. It's possible that he was driven by vengeance as Michael's father had previously arrested him. This thirst for revenge would also imply that Chuck had an unreasonable sense of entitlement as he still wanted revenge despite having received a lighter sentence than he deserved.
