Artie is a long-time Secret Service Agent who is in charge of Warehouse 13. Enthusiastic about his work, and made a bit "eccentric" by his long tenure in the isolated warehouse, Artie is happy to have fellow agents join him in the pursuit of objects that "threaten to ruin the world's day." While no one person can be said to fully understand all the mysteries residing in the warehouse, Artie comes the closest, and has mastered the use of artifacts like Philo Farnsworth's communications device and Thomas Edison's electric car. The depths of his knowledge about Warehouse 13's contents have yet to be fully explored. He also bakes a mean cookie.
