Chas Cowing

When Spartacus is in the office, he guards it ferociously, regularly terrorizing delivery people, especially the mailperson. Chas is expected to continue his sentence as owner, agent, computer repair-person and bottle-washer at Access Talent until he ends up…well, wherever old agents go to scream: “Hey you kids, get off the lawn!”
