When Rookie first arrives at Longshore Blades, like the others in the welcome party, greets him. However, instead of treating him kindly he threats the Rookie. He likely feels similar hatred to that that Archer expressed when Rookie's lack of skills are revealed. Additionally, Blades treatens Rookie if he attempts to make a move on his girlfriend, Girlie..


Blades' girlfriend is revealed to be Girlie. Their relationship has minimalisticly been explored.


  • Blades' name, much like Archer, shows what he specialises in.
