Biography[edit | edit source]
Background[edit | edit source]
Charlotte is an executive director of Delos who was sent to the Westworld park to deal with the Host Uprising.
Later, host replica of Charlotte Hale was created by Bernard Lowe to carry a version of Dolores Abernathy, who he had "killed" in the Forge. Whilst not identified as Dolores initially, Dolores killed the real Charlotte Hale and assumed her identity in order to leave the parks for the mainland. Once there, Dolores built her own body using the construction machine at Arnold's house and had her control unit transferred into it.
Later, it was revealed that the host masquerading as Hale was one of several copies of Dolores. "Halores", the host pretending to be Hale, assumed Hale's own position as the CEO of the Delos Board.

Personality[edit | edit source]
Hale is very intelligent and calculating; a senior manager of a large corporation at a young age. In Season One she suggests the plan to stage a demonstration of the Hosts' instability and humiliate Ford, and she seems to be willing to go to any lengths to get Ford removed from the park.
She is comfortable using the Hosts as it suits her, she has sex with the bandit Hector and lets Clementine get beaten up to achieve her goal.
She dresses carefully and is often seen adjusting her hair, or checking her reflection.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Despite firing him without hesitation when he takes the blame for a software upgrade that went wrong, Hale appears to trust Bernard when physical danger threatens. This is until she discovers his true nature as a host and relentlessly tortures him to gain information.
Hale has Hector sent to her and has sex with him in her room. He appears to be a favourite of hers.
Hale had a working relationship with William, with a high level of trust between the two. William trusted Hale enough for him to pass his executive powers to her whilst seeking to find the centre of the maze. He is unaware, however, that Hale is the mole within Delos.
Theresa and Charlotte work together to get Ford removed from the park. They seem to be on good terms, having long meetings to formulate plans. It's notable that Hale deliberately makes Cullen uncomfortable by answering the door to her room naked, having just had sex with the host Hector.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
- Season 1
- Season 2
- Season 2
- Season 3
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Hale was the mole within Delos, acting as both the mole for Engerraund Serac and as the executive director.
- The host version of Hale is known on-set as "Halores" — an amalgamation of "Hale" and "Dolores" — to distinguish Thompson's performance from both her own character and Evan Rachel Wood's character.
- Wood consulted heavily on Thompson's performance, providing audio recordings of herself reading Halores's lines and offering tips on some of Dolores's movements which Thompson emulated.
