He can't dismiss the possibility. He just can't trust it.
The probability of Charlie being involved, does remind me of a saying:

Once: Coincidence.
Twice: Bad luck.
Third time: Enemy action.

I'd put something repeatedly as unlikely as 2% firmly in "enemy action" territory.

    I think the bracer works without using bayes theorem unless you tell it so for the question about finding the gobwins that 2%
    represents either a critical fumble or someone is fooling round with the goblins when parson told it to assume someone was fooling with the gobwins it used bayes to work out the percentage of the 2% that was not a critical fumble

    In light of the final summer update, it seems that Charlie indeed has significant influence over natural allies. He may have bought them out from underneath Gobwin Knob, for some sinister-as-yet-unknown reason.
