Carlos Ray "Chuck" Norris (born March 10, 1940) is the dictator that was in control of Texas from 1993 until the invasion led by Chan Santa Cruz forced him to flee. He is now in hiding, rumored to be in Death Valley.
Norris was born in Ryan, Oklahoma on March 10, 1940 to Wilma and Ray Norris, a mechanic, bus driver, and truck driver. Norris was named after Carlos Berry, his father's minister. He has two younger brothers, Wieland (1943-1993) and Aaron (1951-). When he was sixteen, his parents divorced, and he later move to Prairie Village, Kansas, then to Torrance, California with his mother and brothers.
Norris has described his childhood as downbeat in his speeches. He was nonathletic, shy, and scholastically mediocre.
He joined the United States Air Force in 1958 and was sent to Osan Air Base, South Korea. It was there that Norris acquired his nickname Chuck and began training in Tang Soo Do, an interest that got him a black belt in the art. When he returned to the United States, he continued to act as an Air Policeman at March Air Force Base in California.
Norris was discharged in August 1962. He worked for the Northrop Corporation and opened a chain of Karate schools including a school in his then-hometown of Torrance. However, he stopped when the apocalypse began. He quickly faded into obscurity, until his reemergence in the early 1990's.
Chuck Norris's acting debut was The Wrecking Crew in 1968, alongside stars such as Dean Martin and Sharon Tate. His career was met with difficulty as he was stranded in Torrance, California. His one other role was in The Green Berets as a martial arts performer.
