Season 1

    Crenshaw/Kremenski 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/a772930192f3338805a9535e28c1bb11.png
Voiced by: Shelly Desai

A KGB mole in the ISIS organization, Crenshaw is introduced in "Mole Hunt" during, ironically, a KGB interrogation training exercise. When Archer tries to cover up his own inappropriate expenses, Crenshaw is forced to out himself as a KGB operative named Kremenski and take Archer hostage. During his escape attempt, he is distracted by Archer's strangely-timed erection, and is killed on the spot.


  • Character Death: Shot three times by Archer at the end of "Mole Hunt".
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Introduced as a minor side-character, Crenshaw ends up being the main antagonist of the first episode.
  • Cigar Chomper: Lights a cigar during the training exercise.
  • Deceased Fall-Guy Gambit: Archer uses him as such. After Cyril notices Kremenski had stolen $50,000 from Archer's account, Archer lets everyone believe Kremenski had been stealing from him all along.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Is genuinely disturbed by Archer getting an erection at the thought of Malory dying, to the point that it distracts him and leaves him open to gunfire, and feels everyone mistreats Pam.
  • Flashback: One in "The Wind Cries Mary" shows him seated opposite Malory at the celebration for Archer and Lucas Troy completing training.
  • Insistent Terminology: It's a golf cart battery, not a go-kart battery.
  • The Mole: While Archer initially made up the idea of a mole inside ISIS, Crenshaw actually was one from the beginning.
  • Monster of the Week: The main antagonist of "Mole Hunt".
  • Pet the Dog: He tells Archer and the others that they should be nicer to Pam.
  • Starter Villain: The first villain ISIS come across.
  • Torture Technician: At least, plays the part in an Electric Torture training exercise.
  • Walking Spoiler: It's impossible to describe him without ruining The Reveal that he's the traitor inside ISIS, and explaining his absence from the rest of the series as a recurring villain is even worse.
  • We Have Ways of Making You Talk: Invokes this word-for-word during the training exercise.
  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: Archer complains about his all-over-the-place attempt at a Russian accent in the training exercise ( ironic considering he really is Russian):
    Archer: Can you just pick an accent and stick with it?

  • Flashback: His only scene.
  • Incompetence, Inc.: Despite being dead, his 401k account still has $275,223 as of "Jeu Monégasque".

  • Kinda Busy Here: Archer calls him on Saint Patrick's Day just to convince two women that they're spies.
  • The Mole: His mission as an ISIS agent. Infiltrated South American paramilitary organization El Frenté Rojo.
  • Plot-Triggering Death:
    • His death forces ISIS to hire Conway Stern to continue enjoying government subsidies.
    • In a more subtle example, if he had managed to infiltrate El Frenté Rojo, they may not have re-appeared in Season 2, trying to kidnap Anka Schlotz.
  • Posthumous Character: Died shortly before the "Diversity Hire" is set.
  • Token Minority: Was the previous minority who allowed ISIS to enjoy government benefits. His death, along with those of Agents Pak and Mgumbe puts this in jeopardy.

    Conway Stern 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/conwaystern_4892.PNG
"He's a diversity double-whammy!"
Voiced By: Coby Bell
"You haven't seen the last of Conway Stern... which is not my real name!"

A new agent from "Diveristy Hire" brought in by Malory to replace three culturally diverse agents whom Archer had gotten captured. He's actually a Double Agent, working only for himself, who has infiltrated ISIS so that he could obtain the Whisper Drive. He reappears in Season 6, for more information see Archer One Shot Characters Season 5 To 7.

Note: the spoiler tags below will be for future episodes.


  • The Ace: It took him two phone calls to complete a mission Lana had been planning for months ("Salsa").
  • An Arm and a Leg: His left hand is ripped off in his first appearance when Lana's harpoon pulls back the briefcase handcuffed to his wrist, detaching his hand in the process. While he gets a robotic left hand from Krieger, his other hand is ripped off when Lana slams shut a glass door on it in "Three to Tango".
    • It's heavily implied Gilette's the recipient of one of the missing hands.
  • The Cameo: He makes one in Season 4's "Legs", in a flashback that shows Krieger building him a robotic hand to replace the one that Lana ripped off, technically making him a cyborg.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: He betrays Lana and Archer in both "Diversity Hire" and "Three to Tango".
  • Double Agent/The Mole:
    • Played with in "Diversity Hire". Archer and Lana theorise that he is this, but when Archer and Conway travel to Miami on a mission, Conway saves his life twice before revealing himself to be this after all seconds later, when he literally stabs Archer In the Back.
    • In "Three to Tango", Archer and Lana are understandably concerned about this, but Slater reveals that he was working for the CIA the whole time, and the Whisper Drive was a fake. However, after taking the microfilm, he reveals himself as a mole once again.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: He pulls a Face–Heel Turn at the end of "Diversity Hire", then a Heel–Face Turn at the start of "Three to Tango", then another Face–Heel Turn at the end of said episode.
  • In the Back: He (literally) stabs Archer in the back in "Diversity Hire", and then shoots him in the back in "Three to Tango". Both are representative of actual backstabbings.
  • No Name Given: His last line in "Diversity Hire" is him confirming that "Conway Stern" is not his real name. In Three to Tango, his last line is him averting this by saying he lied before and Conway Stern IS his real name.
  • Pet the Dog: Chooses not to shoot Lana upon learning she has a daughter (despite wanting vengeance for Lana severing his hand), as he doesn't wish to deprive an infant of its mother.
  • Phrase Catcher: "CON-way! That was AMAZING!"
  • Twofer Token Minority: Black and Jewish. It was literally the only reason Mallory hired him. Well, that and because he's hot.

Malory invites him to dinner to convince him to give ISIS the contract while secretly planning a fake assassination attempt. But unbeknownst to her, Nikolai Jackov is planning a real assassination.


  • Boom, Headshot!: How he dies. Unless the back of his skull decided at that exact moment to explode outward.
  • Character Death: Is shot repeatedly in the head by Uta after her poisoning attempt fails. His body is then put in Malory's neighbour's bathroom with Elka's to stage a "hooker-Murder-Suicide".

  • Covert Pervert: Uses cupping Lana's Beretta 92s as an excuse to rub her breasts.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Might be loosely based on former second Secretary General of the UN Dag Hammaskjöld.

  • Mistaken for Terrorist: Is the prime suspect due to Captain Lammers trying to paint him as such but Archer dismissed him as "too obvious" when he sees a Middle Eastern man wearing a turban (though Lana still considers him a possible suspect). He isn't, but does know how to defuse the bomb.

  • Character Name Alias: Calls himself "George Spelvin", an old stage name used for characters who never make a stage appearance and by actors who play multiple roles, appear in non-union plays or otherwise don't want to use their real name.

  • Catchphrase: (in Valley Girl voice) "AMAAAAAAZING!"

  • Hawaiian-Shirted Tourist: Wears a Hawaiian shirt on vacation in Las Vegas.
  • Killed Offscreen: Apparently died sometime before "The Papal Chase", although Archer never told Woodhouse.
  • Russian Roulette: Won a game in Vegas, apparently with the same group of people in Malory's flashback in "Job Offer".
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Looks just like Woodhouse.
  • Viva Las Vegas!: He and Woodhouse saved up for years for an all-inclusive Vegas vacation. Archer guilts Woodhouse into letting him go instead and takes Woodhouse's clothes.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Last seen heading to Mexico with Archer. While Archer returned to ISIS, Dickey has not been seen since. Archer mentions in "The Papal Chase" that he died, unless Woodhouse has another brother.

Malory's doctor. Examines Archer as well, finding a tumour, later performing his lumpectomy; from "Stage Two".


  • Bearer of Bad News: Discovers Archer's breast cancer.
  • Dr. Jerk: Unintentionally.
    • He calls Archer's surgery a success because to spare Malory's feelings after having to cancel their date.
    • Phones Archer during his post-surgery celebration to inform him the cancer has spread.
    • Phones Archer again to inform him he had the wrong chart and that the cancer is gone.
    • Phones Archer again to inform him he looked that the right chart and the cancer has definitely spread.
    • He's more interested in scoring with Malory than in giving Archer an accurate cancer diagnosis.

Archer and Ruth's pharmacist; from "Placebo Effect".


  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": He's referred to as "Pharmacist" in credits, though no one addresses him by any name in-story.
  • Freudian Threat: On the receiving end of one by Archer.
  • The Informant: Is forced into into this by Archer.
  • The Irish Mob: Isn't connected to them, but is forced to purchase chemotherapy supplies from them.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: The chemo drugs he distributed were fake. As Mikey Hannity explains, The Irish Mob forced pharmacists to pay for the real thing, then swapped out the genuine drugs with counterfeits before distributing them, though he doesn't know where the real drugs went afterwards.
  • We Have Ways of Making You Talk: Archer's Freudian Threat:
    Pharmacist: I get it! You have a lot of guns!
    Archer: And a knife, which I am going to push very slowly into your urethra if you don't answer my questions. Number one...
    [cut to Archer staking out a warehouse]
    Archer: God what a pussy. I could barely even keep up, he was spilling the beans so fast.
    Lana: Well, you did threaten to shove a knife up his dick-hole. Which, again, ick!

  • Character Death: Archer shoots him in cold blood for distributing counterfeit chemotherapy drugs to cancer patients.
  • Evil Cripple: Is confined to a wheelchair and must use an oxygen tank, presumably from a lifetime of smoking.
  • Gender-Blender Name: "Franny" is typically a feminine name.
  • Hidden Villain: It takes much of the episode for Archer and Lana to find him.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: After everything he's done, he genuinely believed that Archer wouldn't kill an unarmed, old man.
  • I Banged Your Mom: Had an affair with Malory in Phuket, Thailand. He claims it was only three days, while she claims it was two weeks.
  • The Irish Mob: Their mob boss.
  • Jerkass: Possibly the biggest in the entire series, even compared to Edie or Casteau.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: He gets murdered by Archer for distributing counterfeit chemo drugs.
  • Monster of the Week: The primary antagonist of "Placebo Effect".
  • Pay Evil unto Evil: Archer shoots him because he switched chemo drugs and caused several deaths of cancer patients from improper treatment.
