Charles' Room is the bedroom of Charles Eriksen, father of Chris Eriksen, the protagonist of The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit.


Chris' old drawing of Charles.

The walls of Charles' bedroom are lined with blue wallpaper, with a noticeably faded rectangular area imprinted above the bed. Scattered around the room are several discarded articles of clothing, a pair of brown boots, and multiple crushed beer cans.

The room's door has a prominent fist mark embedded into its left panel. In front of the door is a brown drawer with a bottle of Emily Eriksen's old perfume lying on top and a baseball bat resting on its side. Beside the door is wooden wardrobe with an incomplete height gauge drawn onto its side, and within the wardrobe are a box containing a new Playbox, a basketball with several signatures drawn onto it, and several letters pertaining to Charles' past.

Taped to the left of the bed is a drawing done by Chris, depicting a younger Charles in his basketball uniform with multiple basketballs floating above his head. To the left of the bed is a nightstand, which holds a lamp with a key hidden on its lampshade and two books. To the right of the bed is Charles' closet, which contains a box holding files pertaining to Emily's case, a sports bag, and a porn magazine.

A window on the left wall overlooks the backyard, and lying on its windowsill are a box of cigarettes and an ashtray. Situated underneath the window are a wooden chair, a box containing Emily Eriksen's old records (including "Moon and Moon" by Bat for Lashes), and a turntable, as well as an amplifier with two speakers.

  • One of the dates on Chris' height chart on his father's wardrobe is "09/10/2013". This is possibly a link to the third episode of the original Life is Strange, "Chaos Theory". October 9th is the date when "Chaos Theory" takes place.
