After his death, Nicholas Edwards becomes Rayford Steele's co-pilot.
In the first film, Christopher Smith is one of the many people who were not taken in the Rapture because they had not accepted Jesus Christ.
In the sequel, Christopher does attempt suicide, but Ray witnessed to him, and he got saved instead of committing suicide. He eventually becomes part of the Tribulation Force, and starts attending church services.
In the third film, he helps a group of Tribulation Force members steal Bibles from a warehouse where the Global Community are spraying them with poisonous gas. While escaping, however, they are caught by security guards, and are fired upon. One of the guards comes to Christopher, and asks him who he works for. Christopher answers, "God Almighty!" The guard replies, "Wrong answer," and shoots him dead.
Christopher Smith returns in the 2014 reboot, but he is already a Christian. He first appears when the plane he and Rayford Steele are piloting takes off. Later on, the Rapture takes place, and he is one of the people that are raptured. Rayford is only able to see his clothes laying on the seat next to him.
