Hero Overview

There is something you should know about me by now...I don't learn lessons.
~ Stan Smith.
We can't choose our fathers, but we can choose our father figures. I chose my mother. That set me back a little bit.
~ Stan Smith.
Oh, boy It's swell to say. Good morning USA!
~ Stan Smith in the theme song of American Dad!.

Biography

Beginnings

Stan Smith (also known as Stanley or Stanford Smith) is born on November 22, 1966, to Jack and Betty Smith. Stan had a really rough childhood as his father Jack never knew nothing about him before he walked out and divorced his wife, Betty. As now his father Jack becomes a criminal and spends his endless days in prison, Stan lives alone with his mother Betty as the two embrace and bond with each other as his mother Betty tries so hard to impress his son and make his life happy.

Love Life

A couple of years later on in his teen/adult years, Stan met Francine for the first time as she hitch hiked like the beauty drama queen she is, the two get into a relationship by the developing the love that can’t be broken, later on they get married and have two children Hayley and Steve.

Present Life

Stan is now a happily married man to his wife Francine, who is a typical housewife that puts to her into standards, his hippie daughter Hayley who is rebellious and ultra liberal becoming like an activist protesting smarts and rights, he has a son named Steve who is a geekiest kid and outcast in school as he attends Pearl Bailey High School, He has a pet goldfish named Klaus and adopted a pet alien from Area 51 named Roger who is very intelligent as he is the mastery of disguise that he normally keeps secrets from humans, but he is still member of the family. Stan works full time at the C.I.A (Central Intelligence Agency) as he is part of the security team and the Head Deputy Director of Cooperation is his boss Avery Bullock.

Heroic Roles

Though Stan often acts like a villain due to his bigoted and paranoid actions, he has, at several times, shown a redeeming and/or heroic side:

  • Pilot: Stopped Steve's self-loathing-induced tyranny when the latter went mad with power by admitting just how unpopular he himself had been in high school, which Stan allegedly had never admitted to anyone before.
  • Francine's Flashback: Risked his life without hesitation to save an amnesiac Francine from a fire.
  • Stannie Get Your Gun: While quadriplegic, Stan moved himself directly into the path of an oncoming bullet to save Hayley.
  • Bullocks to Stan: Beat up Bullock to defend Hayley's honor, despite Bullock pretending it was some sort of test for Stan in order to avoid further injury.
  • Finances with Wolves: Directly risked sacrificing himself to save Francine's life, only surviving due to being protected by a giant hip-hop clock worn around his neck.
  • Dungeons and Wagons: Stan went as far as joining the risky and dangerous world of street-racing to satisfy Francine's misery.
  • The Best Christmas Story Never: Overcame his inability to strike against Ronald Reagan by carrying out the 1981 assassination attempt when he learned that his kids would never be born otherwise.
  • Joint Custody: Went to rescue Jeff from being wrongly arrested after learning that Jeff's father planned to frame his own son for his cannabis-growing operation.
  • Roots: Saved Steve's life when he was falling off a building.
