Charlie the dance coach is one of several named NPCs within Degrees of Lewdity. They are the professional dance instructor of the Dance Studio, located on Barb Street.
Charlie's description varies slightly on what sex they are determined as. However, regardless of sex they will be described as having emerald green eyes, short ginger hair crowning their freckled face, and wearing a skintight outfit that shows off their toned and athletic body. It is said they give no sign towards noticing lewd gazes.
- If male/have a penis: "You can't help but notice the bulge of their penis pressing against their bottoms."
- If female: "Their generous breasts are held close to their torso, giving them a slim outline."
Upon taking a lesson for the first time, the player is led through the studio into a large room, with a dozen other people already inside. It's noted that the player easily spots the dance instructor teaching the class the importance of warm up exercises. The door closes behind the player, alerting the instructor to their presence. They smile, welcoming the new student to the class.
Appraising their body will have the instructor show no signs of them noticing the player's lewd gazing.
The player now have the option to introduce themselves, but they have three options on how they can do that:
Introducing themselves timidly will have the player mumble "H-hello..." with their eyes transfixed on their feet. Without saying a word they put a protective arm around the player's shoulders, encouraging them that they will break the player out of their shy shell.
Introducing themselves confidently will have the player exclaim: "Pleased to meet you! I can't wait to get started!" The instructor warns the player not to be too eager as this will strain their muscles.
Introducing themselves flirtatiously will have the player openly eye the instructor's body, while they make a suggestive comment. "Nice outfit. Really shows off your assets." This causes the instructor to shift uncomfortably on the spot, as if suddenly self-conscious. The instructor is annoyed by this.
Regardless of how the player introduces themselves, the dance instructor introduces themselves as Charlie, before moving the player over to the rest of the class and commencing the lesson.
Charlie spends most of their time instructing their dance class. If the player chooses to participate in their classes, they have a chance of interacting with Charlie. Note that Charlie's dance lessons are the only way that Charlie can be interacted with. They cannot be interacted with outside of the Dance Studio.
Dance lessons charges £12 hourly. Consider it a way of speeding up the Dancing skill in a safe place, in comparison to easier, but more dangerous places such as the Brothel.
Interactions with Charlie allow for little improvement to develop their relationship with the player. Charlie will tend to act welcoming towards the player, especially towards more submissive/shy characters. They have a fascination for the latter, wanting to get them to break out of their shell. The player meekly introducing themselves and/or complimenting Charlie will increase Charlie's opinion of the player.
Alternatively, Charlie seems to feel somewhat jealous towards more confident PCs, annoyed by their behaviour of bragging and/or flirting. They especially dislike those who act flirty - causing their opinion of the player to drop.
Though the rarely express their dislike of the player, they're shown to hold enough of a grudge to potentially task them with dangerous work, though their concern is still noted even in cases where they dislike the player.
Note that it is currently impossible to initiate a lewd sexual encounter with Charlie.
Note: The following events are not to be considered as a full, comprehensive list of Charlie's interactions in the game - but more rather their most notable interactions. As such, minor events may not be listed below. However, more interactions will be listed below as the character remains in development.
As Charlie is primarily found at the Dance Studio, they will make many appearances there. They will serve as the player's dance coach while attending there, remaining forefront and center in the role. Interactions with them will tend to involve teacher-student interactions, such as helping the player dance better or train the player in wearing high heels.
Beyond the first meeting, Charlie has some interaction with the player; although few in number.
- Charlie asks the player and another person to put away the portable bars into the equipment room.
- Charlie might need to leave the class for a few minutes and the player can decide, how they want to spend their time.
Charlie may give the player some personal attention, demonstrating moves while their body touches the player's. The player can compliment them meekly, with Charlie giving them more attention by the player appealing to their interests - to the envy of the other dancers.
Additonally, the player may choose to brag confidentally, to which Charlie laughs it off, then telling the player to "shut their trap" and watch them closely.
If the player has a Promiscuity rank of 2 or higher, they can flirt with Charlie instead. The player will rub their ass against Charlie's lower half, while they call Charlie "well formed." In response, Charlie will blush and move away from the player, finding an excuse to avoid them for the rest of the lesson.
If the player is wearing heeled footwear - such as the platform heels - they may have to go undergo training to wear them properly. This is done at the Dance Studio, where Charlie will once again host classes for the player to participate in.
The player must arrive at the dance studio while wearing heels, otherwise lessons will not be available. Doing this will increase the player's "Feet" sexual skill, allowing the player to wear the heels with little issues. High heels will deal additional kick damage during combat encounters.
Similarly to dance class, several smaller events will occur, such as:
- Charlie has the class watch a short educational video as the class is about to wind down. The video is said to be low-quality and grainy, and shows a woman wearing tall heels, stepping on a banana. Humorously, the player thinks that it must be someone's fetish.
Once the player's dancing skill is developed enough to catch Charlie's attention, they'll pull the player aside during a lesson. Taking advantage of their deep connections in the dancing scene, they'll offer the player one of two exclusive jobs, both with varying profitability and danger.
For more information, see Charlie's Jobs.
- Charlie is one of several people of interest to exist since the initial release of the game. A full list is provided on the Named Non-Playable Characters page.
- Charlie is actually the first unique (named) NPC made by Vrelnir. According to him, he had not worked out how much information was given to the player when describing NPCs yet.
- Prior to Version 0.2.14.1, a bug occurred where Charlie would (very rarely) appear outside of the Dance Studio and appear in combat as an attacker. While in combat, they were referred to as the "dance coach."
