She is an alternate counterpart of Circus Baby from Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location and the mascot of Circus Baby's Pizza.
Circus Baby is described as "Elegant and feminine", her walk as "Gracefully, yet mechanically". Her split face is said to appear "Exquisitely sculpted" with "Rosy cheeks, enormous, round eyes" and "Long, black lashes". She has that red and white outfit with a short skirt; her hair is tied into two "Silky pigtails". Her overall appearance is dominated by "Sleek and controlled beauty". Baby is usually seen in a more humanoid form than her video game counterpart, with Jessica noting that Baby looks like a mannequin. However by retracting the needles on her body, Baby can alter her form to resemble her in-game appearance.
Charlotte is a teenage girl with pale skin, who wears white t-shirt, blue jeans pants and just like the original, she wears a olive green long sleeve jacket. She has brown smooth hair and brown eyes. The disguise, however, has slight differences. It also wears fitting dresses, combat boots, and heals, while Charlie wouldn’t wear these items.

Her facial features include a pale face, long eyelashes, rosy cheeks, red lips, a garish pink nose, bright green eyes, and vibrant blue eyebrows. Her pins are described as thin, sharp spines like porcupind's needles, each capped with red knob like a pinhead that sticking out of her face, her body, her arms and her legs. In this form, her stomach can split open at the middle and shotout an enormous mass of wires and pongs.
Despite her sweetness and kind personality as Charlotte, Circus Baby has a type of jealous/emotionless/sardonic personality, as she was jealous of Charlotte's robotic counterpart's life she lives, so Circus Baby tried to killed her. She is also described as someone who cares deeply for her father, she is also a germaphobe.
The Novel Trilogy
The Twisted Ones
As Charlie's friends mourn over her death, a Circus Baby disguise as Charlie drives up and got out. She was slim and tall, with long, straight brown hair that glistened in the sun. She strode purposefully toward the diner. They all watched motionless, as if the slightest sound might rupture the illusion and send her away. The woman was almost at the door.
They rushed to the doorway to meet her just as she walked in. Arty seemed confused, his mouth opened slightly and his brow furrowed. John watched for a steady moment, then turned away decisively, facing across the table with a grave expression. He didn't speak until Arty met his gaze, "That's not Charlie."
The Fourth Closet
Appearing in Chapter 3, Circus Baby is helping the dying William test on New Freddy by rising the temperature, this was because William wanted to keep rising the temperature. However, Circus Baby warned William Afton that, rising the temperature will destroy the endoskeletons, but only for Afton to respond to Circus Baby, "They will become more, just like you did.".
Circus Baby later appears disguised as Charlotte Emily asking Jessica to help her get ready for her date with John, after having a talk about a few of her near-death experiences but not questioning about Jen. John and Jessica go to find whats at Silver Reef after Theodore keeps repeating the phrase "shining star. silver reef." They had found a house and it turns out Aunt Jen (Aka Jenny) had been living there the whole time. They try talking but there is a knock on the door before they get any real answers. They are told to go and hide while she opens the door. Aunt Jen and the Other Charlie have a hushed conversation that John can't hear. While hiding they are finding the actual Charlie. They hear a scream and crashes, so they make a break for it with the unconscious actual Charlie. As they are escaping they see Jenny's dead bod slumped on the floor, blood spattered the wall behind like an abstract mural with her stomach ripped open.
As Circus Baby raced down a hill, she remembers the moment when she killed Jen, and stated that she had the dignity to not beg as she got slammed into a door, as Circus Baby slowly kills her, not knowing that its wasn't Charlie, Jen stated that she always love her to which Circus Baby pulled back and gave Jen a calmed look and stated that she loves her too before ripping open her stomach, killing her in the process.
Near the end of the novel it is revealed that Baby was supposed to be the Fourth and final version of Charlie. The adult Charlie, but Henry killed himself before he could finish her. Baby then goes and killed Elizabeth Afton the daughter of William Afton, and that's why she has both memories of Elizabeth and Baby in Henry’s garage.
She finally met her at the end of the book, where she was fighting with Charlie until Charlie stabbed herself and Elizabeth through the chest with Henry suicide robot's knife.
In the second story of Fazbear Frights: Into the Pit, when walking home from school, a girl named Sarah finds Baby inside a car trunk in the junkyard. After taking her home and cleaning her up, she activates her. Baby introduced herself as Eleanor and promises to Sarah to grant her every wish to show her appreciation for Sarah's kindness. Sarah told to Eleanor that she wanted to be beautiful. Eleanor promised to Sarah to make her wish come true. She gave Sarah a necklace and told Sarah to never take it off. Then as Sarah goes to sleep every night, Eleanor surgically cut off Sarah's bodyparts and replaced them with metal junk which looked as normal body parts thanks to the necklace's cloaking technology, which made Sarah look more beautiful. However, in school, after Sarah's necklace accidentally falls off her, she sees what Eleanor had done to her. She goes home to find Eleanor, but after finding bags filled with her cut bodyparts in the garage, she sees Eleanor who after pressing a button on her own necklace, which looked identical to Sarah's, took the appearance of a pre-surgery Sarah. Taking her identity, Eleanor leaves Sarah to crumble into a mess of junk.
