Chara is the main antagonist of Season 1 and a supporting protagonist of Season 2 of Glitchtale. They are the fallen child who fell down many years ago, eventually Frisk came along and did the Pacifist route multiple times, until deciding to do the Genocide route. Due to this, Chara was able to manifest and stick around through the timelines via the HATE they absorbed, however they were eventually defeated and redeemed by Asriel, Gaster, Frisk, and Sans.
In Season 2, Chara acts as a supporting protagonist, Frisk came to ask them for help after Asriel got corrupted by Betty, so Chara could attempt to bring Asriel back to normal. They agreed and replaced Frisk in the timeline, now acting as the protagonist.
HATE Chara is full of HATE. Due to the fact that they fed off of HATE for the entire genocide run, they're depicted as ruthless, manipulative, and sociopathic. This was eventually changed when Asriel reminded Chara of when they were alive.
Chara is shown to only have become evil due to the HATE they absorbed, in reality they are nice, kind, and occasionally likes to make a joke.
