Archimedes is a cosmetic item for the Medic. It is the Medic's pet white dove splattered in blood, as seen in Meet the Medic, sitting on the Medic's shoulder, and moves around when he walks. The BLU version of Archimedes does not have blood splattered on his body. His eyes and beak are connected with Medic's facial animations, allowing him to mimic the Medic's expressions.
