The head librarian of the Starchives, the Astral Kingdom's vast library. He can go off for hours talking about useless, but interesting trivia. It seems his love of books has gotten to the point where he's sat reading than talking to his wife, Matilda. He loves peace and quiet but isn't afraid to give a good scolding to those that are causing trouble. His ability is to make Mario become invisible.
In the game, he is Mario's second companion.
Archie meets Mario when Goombeverly tours Mario, Luigi and Peach into the Starchives. When a mysterious group called the Shades barge in and wreck the place, looking to destroy one of the Rewind Chronicles, Archie is the first on the scene. When it's time to battle, he joins Mario to give the Shades a piece of his mind. Afterwards, he stays with Mario in order to collect all of the Rewind Chronicles, since he has always wanted to read them. Besides, his beloved Matilda says he should get out more, and it's time to get out and adventure to see things not depicted in books.
