Faraday comforts Charlotte after her rescue from Team Locke. ("The Economist")

Charladay is the fan-given name to the relationship between Charlotte Lewis and Daniel Faraday. Such nicknames for pairings are also more generally known as 'ships (short for "relationships").

The Charladay romance was unusual in that their past was almost entirely unknown, but the first time they meet on-island they both seemed overjoyed, and remained very protective of each other. Charlotte knew about Daniel's memory problems, and seemed to have been acting as his therapist for some time. Charlotte also seemed to know the details of Daniel's research, as seen in "The Constant" when she warns him not to "confuse anyone". She also believes that she met Daniel as a child, and he'd warned her to never return to the Island.
