Popular yet inclusive, Cella is not one to sit on the sidelines and cheer while the boys have all the fun. She's a sports buff and health nut who wants to be a full participant in all of life's thrills. While she's got her own friends, she can hang with Charlie's crew too, and isn't shy to challenge any of them to a race- any place, any time. Even though she's competitive, and considers Charlie a bit of an athletic rival, she's always a good sport and plays by the rules, and expects others to do the same.
Likeable, gullible, and naïve, Morgan is a type of tag-along friend of Charlie’s. He doesn’t want to offend anyone and laughs at dumb jokes though he is not a dumb person. He is a very loyal friend to Charlie and Webber. He has a weight problem that he is aware of but does little about it.
Webber is out for himself. He is not mean spirited; however, he needs to always get what he wants – even if you have to suffer for it. He always has an angle and can always get Morgan to do whatever he needs him to do. Charlie is another story. He doesn’t fall for Webber’s selfish trickery. For that reason, the two tend to bicker at times but it rarely comes between their odd friendship. Charlie is aware of Webber’s ways and is above it.
