Archer is a modest technical genius who is now and then a little overzealous, but also carefully follows orders. With his friends Patricia and Jeff around, he has no chance of developing a dominant attitude. He's aware of his own genius, which sometimes makes him seem a little sententious.
When he starts acting the scientist, Jeff bring shim back to earth and Arch has a good relationship with Patricia, with whom he worries about their friend Jeff, who unlike them, has no idea what to do with his life.
Archer's technical interest and skills are worth a fortune in building his academic career and, for him, there is no place more perfect than the robotics system engineering faculty at PrEUST.
