He will join you, once you have completed the investigations asked for by Mr Bates.
You might be able to get Chukka to join your party after you've investigated the Black Mountain Clan for Bates. He's a half-ogre and a powerful melee fighter, but he's also good-aligned and will take offense if you perform any evil deeds.
You can only add Chukka to your group after exploring the Black Mountain Mines for Bates. You don't have to be level 16 to get him, but there is some other requirement (and I have no idea what it is).
