OC Spy. I'm the type who, when creating an OC, works strongly from the canon model and then makes tweaks-- though, in the case of spies and pyros, there's plenty of what's-under-the-mask leeway.
Anyway, he's slow in developing a name, though there are a couple strong contenders I'm playing with, and I guess I'll see what sticks. I'm a bit reluctant to go with 'Maurice', since I've used that before and got kind of attached to Maurice's separate fic canon...

He tries to balance that out by being an unrepentant dick much of the time, though. He also enjoys lording a little culture snobbery over most of his teammates.

It is not necessary for any of those to be genuine, and indeed it is often preferable if they are not, the important thing is that they occur only at the proper time/place.
