Artemus Guadeloupe "Artie" Smalls is the main antagonist in Liv and Maddie. His brother is Diggie Smalls. He is Joey's nemesis/frenemy and is also a Space Werewolves fan.

Artie is portrayed by Jimmy Bellinger.

Personality

Artie is an intelligent and over-competitive teenage boy. He tends to be overbearing, egotistical, selfish, self-centered and strives to be the best. He always brings along a group of unnamed nerdy students he calls his "minions". He treats himself like he's the popular kid despite being the school geek.

Biography

History

In Brain-A-Rooney, Artie joins forces with Joey, his nemesis. He along, with Joey and Liv, win the Brain Olympics. In Switch-A-Rooney, Artie (along with the rest of the "nerd nation") testify against Maddie, who is disguised as Liv, after learning that she is auditioning for the part of Tristan, the main character of his favorite book series, Space Werewolves. In Move-A-Rooney, Artie fights with Joey for the title of "Rocket King" of their school's Rocketry Club. In Moms-A-Rooney, Artie is one of the fans of Sing It Loud! who came to the Rooney house for a tour of Liv and Maddie's room. He also wanted the Smalls-Brothers and the Rooney-Sisters to be together.

Physical Appearance

Artie has curly red hair and hazel eyes. He is a few inches shorter than Joey.

Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths

Artie is very intelligent, so he excels at school. He is also very knowledgeable about aerodynamics and speedy bathroom breaks, according to Joey. He's also considered the best chef in Stevens Point.

Weaknesses

At school, Artie is considered a nerd and a geek, so his weaknesses include most things social, and anything involving athletic ability. He is afraid of ladies (except for Liv) and bugs. He's also very lazy, because he's too reliant on his minions. His ego has also shown to tear him apart from others.

Relationships

Liv Rooney: Artie is shown to have strong feelings for Liv and flirts with her whenever they interact. Though she does not return his feelings (and has repeatedly told him so), he still remains persistent. In Switch-A-Rooney, he asks Maddie (who was disguised as Liv) to the prom. However, he states that he wants Liv because his brother gets Maddie.

Maddie Rooney: Though he has not spoken to her directly on-screen yet, Artie seems to respect Maddie at first, due to her excessive knowledge about Space Werewolves. However, he hates Maddie a lot because she refused to choose him on her dodgeball team. He also tried to get revenge on her for breaking up with Diggie, when he finds out that Diggie broke up with Maddie.

Joey Rooney: Though they share many traits, Artie and Joey seem despise each other, due to their bitter rivalry. Joey considers Artie his nemesis, though they have worked together on occasion. But according to Artie's mother, he talks about Joey all the time. He also keeps Joey as a contact on his phone. This suggests that he doesn't hate Joey as much as it seems. However, in Choose-A-Rooney, Artie helps Liv out when Joey is about to interrupt Maddie and Diggie again.

Diggie: Diggie is Artie's brother as found out in Frame-A-Rooney. Diggie mentions he finds Artie's hobbies to be extremely embarrassing. Although Diggie never told anyone he was his brother, Diggie actually sent him something from Australia. In Choose-A-Rooney, he suggests abduction as a solution for Diggie to get Maddie back. It's shown Artie tries to do the same things that his brother does to romantically impress Maddie, such as having a velvet portrait of himself made for Liv.
