Arthur was an accountant before he met The Tick and they became a crime-fighting duo. The 2001 live action Tick series reveals more of Arthur's early life and that he had a sister and a mother whose name was Bea. It is also known that Arthur is of Jewish descent. His battle cry is "Not in the face! Not in the face!" He conceived it in season 1 episode 12, titled "The Tick vs. Arthur's Bank Account," while sitting in his apartment with The Tick; The Tick suggests they come up with "the cries [they] always emit just before leaping into battle!"
