Character Information
Appearances "Poof! You're Dead"
Portrayed by Chadwick Boseman

Chuck Russell is a magician who got chucked - out of the guild - courtesy of Zalman Drake, so when Drake turns up dead at the start of "Poof! You're Dead", Chuck's name soon surfaces, and rockets up the list of suspects.

To make matters worse, Chuck admits to purchasing C4 plastic explosive for Zalman, in exchange for reinstatement, but this is in fact what gets him off the hook, since the invoice for the C4, written in invisible ink, was mistaken by the murderer for a blank sheet of paper, thus explaining how Chuck's fingerprints were found on the "suicide note".
