Sterling Malory Archer is a covert secret agent with the codename of Duchess. The code name given to him by his boss and mother; Malory Archer. As a spy, Archer is the most dangerous in the world. He's deadly when it comes to his job, but in other areas of his life, he's looking for opportunities to play with gadgets, drink and have sex. He has a wild fascination with lacrosse and turtleneck sweaters. His ex-girlfriend Lana Kane works at the same agency as Archer. She's constantly annoyed by the fact that Archer is the number one agent only because his mother runs the ISIS. Archer's mother is a drunk who uses the agency as her personal hit squad. She's called in fake hits on restaurants to be sure she gets a table.
