Flint is a mirror image of his friend and leader Duke. Like Duke, Flint is an an All American action hero. He does what is right. He's smart and he's capable. He's a leader of men though he's a bit less formal than the Joe's top Sargent. He's got a friendly nature to him for the most part. But unlike Duke, he's got a sharper wit and with his temper he doesn't always know when to keep his mouth shut. He's quicker to anger than his old friend Duke too. He's competitive almost to a fault and go to any length to win by the rules. He's by the book when it suits him. He's an intellectual though he doesn't like to show it more readily to present himself as a two fisted hero.
