"I'm getting a stomachache. I'm in a perfect utopia, and I'm... I have a stomachache. This is awful. "
Chidi was born in Nigeria and raised in Senegal. He is a kind and extremely intelligent guy who always sees the good in people.  His indecisiveness is cited to be the reason why he was sent to the Bad Place, his inability to make a decision caused pain and quite literally tortured everyone he loved.>His very existence in the Bad Place was to annoy Eleanor and to get her to 'study' moral ethics but his destiny in Michael`s torture vision was unsuccessful as he actually succeeded in making Eleanor a good person. This is evident when she owns up to being the 'problem' in the 'Good Place'
- Chidi suffers from a condition called "Directional Insanity."
- He once got lost on an escalator.
- From his point of view, everyone around him is speaking French because the neighborhood Michael created translates everything into the language each individual person is fluent in.
