is the elder brother of Archie. He often invents objects which don't work correctly but make funny scenes. After each failure of an invention this never weary inventor works on its improvement or on another new invention. Stear is a good-natured, intelligent, creative, unperturbed, mature and pensive character. He loves Candy, too, but understands already since the beginning that his love can only be hidden and kept in his heart. When the First World War begins, he joins the air force voluntarily and fights for France.
