Charles Andrew Bates is a former developer and current freelance author and illustrator who contributed to White Wolf and its subsidiaries and imprints Arthaus and Sword & Sorcery, as well as to other companies in the industry. He was managing editor of Sword & Sorcery from 2002–2004.

He went by his middle name professionally until 2005. He now uses his full name, Charles Andrew Bates, in credits -- though he signs illustrations simply as "Bates" and apparently prefers that or "Charlie" in daily life. There is no clear reason as to the name changes, other than personal preference. 

His web site is a portfolio of past work and samples.
