Charun is a special event character created as part of the Who Wants to be Hades' Governor Contest. He is controlled by a Puzzle Pirates' player who submitted the contest's winning plan for Sakejima Island on Viridian. He is a Fleet Officer in Death's Gate and a Lord in Death's Banner. Like his master Hades, Charun does not speak to Mortals.

Charun has been seen as a skellie, an old man in rags, and dressed in a black/maroon cape around Sakejima Island. It is thought that in addition to not speaking to mortals he also does not leave Sakejima.

It has also been noted that he might have became hearties with some mortals, but only talk to them by actions.

The winner completed the course in 89 minutes.

From 2006-02-01 through 2006-02-12 Governor Charun hosted "Charun's Ferry Repair Competition". This competition was to determined who could repair a sloop at full damage and full bilge the fastest. Participants were timed on how quickly they could eliminate all damage and then timed on how quickly they could empty the bilge. The two times were then combined to find an overall winner. 23 of Viridian's pirates competed in this contest to be known as Charun's personal Ferry Repairer.
