Admiral Ledger is a proud, old school mariner, bragging, "I've been at sea so long, whales ask me for directions." However, while this attitude helps keep his ship efficiently run, it also includes traditional maritime superstitions such as women being considered bad luck on board. This obviously is an irritant for female Joes like Lady Jaye, but he is apparently professional enough otherwise. He is the commander of the G.I. Joe Team's aircraft carrier, the USS Flagg.
