Armstrong, also known by his original name Aram Anni-Padda, is one half of the adventuring duo Archer & Armstrong. He is one of three immortal brothers born in ancient Mesopotamia, along with his younger brother Gilad the Eternal Warrior and his older brother Ivar the Timewalker. Unlike his more serious brothers, Armstrong is known to be a hedonistic party animal famous for his drinking and carousing. He is relentlessly pursued by ancient religious order called "The Sect" who view him as a demonic figure. In the 21st century Armstrong teams up against the Sect with Obadiah Archer, a young martial arts prodigy raised in a Christian cult.

    • Halted Aging: Armstrong, like his brothers, ages either at an extremely slow rate or not at all.
    • Regenerative Healing Factor: Armstrong can heal from any physical injury, no matter how fatal.
  • Superhuman Strength: Armstrong is extremely strong. He has ragdolled several grown men at once, uprooted a tree, and punched a T-Rex into submission.
  • Superhuman Durability: Armstrong's body is very dense. He has shrugged off gunfire, been punched through several walls by the Eternal Warrior, and taken the full brunt of an explosion relatively unscathed.

  • Superhuman Stamina: Armstrong can exert himself for extended periods of time despite being in terrible shape.
  • Hand-to-Hand Combatant (Basic): Armstrong has received very little training if at all, but experience has made him a very competent fighter. He has held his own against the Eternal Warrior and has fought Bloodshot and a fully-powered Archer to a standstill, respectively.

Quote1 I was right, when me and my brothers set off on our journey, that we'd find the world's greatest subject. My first work, "Gilgamesh," got hailed as a masterpiece. So I didn't bother writing anything else after that. I decided to dance, and feast, and be merry. I changed a bunch of stuff -- okay, I lied -- to get to the truth. Immortality, eternity... forever doesn't matter. What matters is what you've got now... before it's gone. Quote2

Quote1 Dang... Carl Jung always said UFO's were a myth -- just a stand-in for God in an increasingly atheistic society. You know... an unknowable higher power manipulating events from beyond the sky? If he were still alive, dude would owe me an absinthe! We had a bet! Quote2
