The figure is a standard male body made from molded black plastic, one one white hand. Conversely, the head is molded in soft white plastic with one side painted black. The costume is composed of two halves, one white and one black, sewn together, with a matching belt attached. There are also a white and a black boot.
There is no Cheron character in the Star Trek universe, but the figure is based upon the character of Bele from the classic episode "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield" (thus making two action figures based on characters played on television by actor Frank Gorshin, the other being the Batman nemesis The Riddler).
