As a student at Winden's high school, Charlotte takes an interest in the growing numbers of dead birds she came across, with white spots on their feathers. She documents them in a sketchbook and takes specimens home to put in the freezer. The recurrence of this phenomenon in 2019 — also coinciding with missing children — troubles her greatly.
On November 12th, while Charlotte is drawing a dead bird in her sketchbook on the edge of the forest, Jonas Kahnwald (from 2019) comes out of the cave and asks her what year it is. She answers 1986 and the boy goes away.
Charlotte has a very serious, all-business personality. She shows this when she is questioning her Elisabeth about her missing friend Yasin, and again when she questions Peter many times about his whereabouts and Helge's cabin. She does not have a good relationship with her husband or her older daughter Franziska. Her marriage to Peter is in trouble — he has been visiting a transgender prostitute, Benni — but they remain married without addressing their estrangement, to the frustration of Franziska.
Charlotte is not known to time travel, but her grandfather was H. G. Tannhaus, the author of "Eine Reise durch die Zeit" ("A Journey through Time"), and she remembers him telling her about the 33-year solar-lunar cycle, black holes, the big bang, and other such things. Towards the end of season 1, she begins to understand that people are time traveling. She finds Ulrich's picture in a newspaper from 1953 in an article describing the missing boy Helge Doppler.
