drink, violence and women. Actually, pick any of the 7 deadly sins and you've just described a hell of a good time for Aram!
Before the advent of recorded history there was a tribe graced with a leader of bravery and honor. Then there was his brother -- Aram. Enormously strong, a great lover of human vices and hunted as a devil by a cult for the past several centuries, Aram lives for the moment to survive his immortality.
== VALIANT UNIVERSE (VH1) - PRE-UNITY ==
Armstrong is an immortal, amoral libertine who abandoned such naive idealism thousands of years ago. As different from each other as Yin and Yang, Archer and Armstrong go together as naturally as beer and pretzels.
== VALIANT ENTERTAINMENT (2012) ==
In the relaunched Valiant Universe Aram Anni-Pada is the middle of three immortal brothers. But unlike his siblings who have dedicated their existences to meaningful causes, Aram changed his name to Armstrong and spends his eternal life drinking beer, writing poetry, chasing women and generally getting into trouble. Over a number of centuries, his free thinking behaviour has gotten the attention of a number of Cults, including The 1% who believe him to be the devil and refer to him as "He Who Is Not To Be Named".
One such cult sends their greatest warrior, a young man known as Obadiah Archer, to kill Armstrong. But when the pair meet it is clear that Archer's family have not been telling him the truth and the two become a cult bashing, world saving duo.
He is also called: The One Whose Name Is Never Spoken, He Who Is Not To Be Named, Samson, Hercules, Strongarm and Aram Anni-Padda.
