When Archer was four years old, Archer's "father", John Fitzgerald Archer, was "killed" in action.Malory upheld this lie so far as to hold a military funeral for him.When Archer discovered that his bike was missing, he sat crying on his bed. Archer simply cried harder, and Malory spanked him with a red ping-pong paddle.
Woodhouse handed Malory a rattle made of sterling silver for the baby.
Archer spent five weeks in the hospital; he had aspirated water in his lungs and gotten pneumonia from it.
This incident caused him to miss out on varsity lacrosse his freshman year at St. At age 18, he was regarded as the most recruited lacrosse player in America, although an incident with a crazed stalker gut-shooting him cost him both his lacrosse career and a possible scholarship to Johns Hopkins University (although it is implied this would not have happened anyway because of his poor SAT scores).
Upon growing up, Archer attempted to join the army, but failed.
Instead, he began work as a spy at his mother's agency, ISIS, quickly climbing the ranks as their top spy thanks to both his genuine skill and his mother's preferential treatment.
