Sterling Archer (H. Jon Benjamin) is a suave, vain, and overly confident master spy. He’s an expert secret agent but is generally inept in all other aspects of his life. It’s telling that Sterling’s less-than-masculine code name is “Duchess.” Sterling’s relationship with Malory Archer (Jessica Walter), his domineering mother and ISIS boss, is often strained, never sympathetic, and sometimes verges on the Oedipal. She governs her employees with harsh criticism, raw commentary, and belligerent vilification.
