This originates from 19th Century parlance and, being used as a descriptive noun, was originally attributed to a prostitute. Later this gave rise to a verb whereby a person was 'charvered' or 'f#cked', this in the context that the person in question was beaten up or generally antagonized by low-life. This then went full circle to describe the antagonist as a 'Charva'. In latter days, 'Charvae' have adopted the name as a term of endearment amongst themselves, despite being a term used to describe them as low-life scum who need to be humanely destroyed.

A person inclined to wear "Kappa" and other tracksuit-like garments plus a hat stolen off an elderly gentleman. Vocabulary stretches as far as, "How man ya fookin hippie, lendz (?)a tab/lite" Usually all merged together in one long sentence. Many charvas have "hardcore" scars (Shaved eyebrows gone terribly wrong)

Charva is typically the northeastern variant of a word referring to a despicable species, also referred to as chavs, townies and various other things according to your region of the country.
Many people correctly assume the charva to be a subhuman type of animal, however they are incorrect in equating the charva with any kind of primate, as is often the case. Whereas primates display often complex social structures, emotions, and intelligent behaviour, the charva is completely devoid of such things. It is consequently a subhuman, subprimate and even submammalian form of life with more in common with the Amoeba than thinking creatures.
As such it is continually baffling that it is illegal to kill these things, but that's justice for you.
Identify your charva by it's preference for various labels of sportwear, such as Adidas, Kappa, Le Coq Sportif, Nike.
As is frequently pointed out, tracksuit bottoms are often tucked into the socks, the 'female' version of the charva has a massive fringe that you could probably slice vegatables with, and the 'male' form has typically short hair, caked in enough gel to drown a rhinocerous.
Both 'sexes' have a boisterous nature and believe that they could beat Sylvester Stallone in a fight despite being weedy and physically pathetic. If they attempt to start a fight for typically miniscule reasons please slap the creature about a bit to teach it a lesson it will rapidly forget.
Len' us twenny pence!

One hell of an anti-socialist group of people who do nothing except for drinking at the local park all night. For their modes of transport it is usually a kids UNIVERSAL bike with the seat as high up as it can go. But when they are old enough (smack bang on their 18th birthday) they buy a car (mainly a Vauxhall Nova/Corsa, Renault 206, Fiat Punto or a Ford Fiesta) and before passing the test they add bits of cheap plastic to the body (cheap and nasty, like they are), a device for the exhaust which makes it sound loud (to collaberate with the 'blingin choons') and have at least a CD Player which has 3 bass boosts so they can be heard approaching from miles away.

These people are Kappa wearing illiterate individuals who prey on the old and the weak. They have bad diets and seem to be either drunk or high most of the time. They come from single parent families and think that smacking a baby is called parenting. They are racist and ignorant of what is going on around them. They eat fast food, and have really bad skin. Their men are mostly unemployed and always walking the streets at all times of the day, usually looking to rob a house, car or a person. Their women (or children!) are pregnant at the age of 13-15 and the parents are always pround of their kids. These people need to be rounded up and gassed so that the infection does not spread. Mainland Europe and the rest of the world lives in horror at the Orcs.
Hey man giv us a tab, i fuckin need one. wot u looking at fucking bastad (a Cahrva speaking to his close friend)
