Charles was multilayered in his personality.

Burns was a jerk. So was Charles. But Charles was also pompous, stuck up, felt superior to his station at the unit, but he was also kind, considerate, passionate, and a nice guy at heart.

Linville quit the character because the character was painted into a corner and there was no real way to humanize him away from his jerk character, and the character was out of place when the show steered more into an Alda dramady.
