Stripes' position as Tac. Officer has never been in question... mainly because no-one is sure what a Tac. Officer is. His doctor told him he is depressed but he claims he is bipolar because it sounds more interesting. In reality, he is just a moody jerk. Although he hates everyone and everything he considers himself good friends with Chic. This is only because Chic is incapable of telling him otherwise.
