An Australian that is always trying to do things right. Unfortunately he always stuffs up and makes a fool of himself. Friends, workmates, family etc. ridicule him because of his misfortune.

Get the battler mug.
Someone who refuses to admit defeat. A person who is very effective when placed in an upper level position. Not only can a Battler lead many people, but if there comes a time when all hope is lost and a Battler is in charge-the Battler can restore hope, motivate, and invigorate his people. Some Battlers are called upon by the Man Upstairs.
Wait a minute-things seem so much better in society now that the Battler is in a good position-maybe the Battler really belongs in a good position because I am sure benefiting from it. Now that the Battler is in an upper level position at our company things seem so much better.
