Trey Walker, the Scout,
is a young man from Boston. He used to want to be a baseball star when he grew up, but
ended up settling for more adventure and danger. He didn't quite give up that dream of his though,
and likes to carry a baseball bat wherever he goes. His cocky nature could get him into lots
of trouble if he didn't have a couple of guns with him, too. Trey also has an unpleasant
excess of enthusiasm which gets on the nerves of many of his teammates.
Flex Johnson, the Soldier, is a slightly crazed, self-trained American grunt.
Although he was rejected by the US Army, he learnt some fighting techniques by
himself, including one that involves blowing your own feet up with a rocket to be
propelled upwards (don't try this at home, kids!); however, he failed to figure out
how to tie a helmet's strap. Although Flex's dreams of promotions may have been shattered
by his inability to enlist, he enjoys talking with an authoritative voice.
Iggy Ashworth, the Pyro, is a pretty mysterious character. The charm of that
enigmatic side pretty much disappears when he attempts to carbonise your flesh
with his flamethrower. When he isn't roasting foes, Iggy enjoys playing air
guitar, having barbecues with his family, and sewing satchels. This last activity
doesn't sound manly enough to some, but anyone can be totally comfortable with
whatever hobbies they have when they own a flamethrower.
Dougal Mac Dhuibhshithe, the Demoman, comes from Scotland and, as a stereotypical Scot,
loves whiskey. He's been fond of explosives ever since he was a child, and lost his
left eye in a failed attempt to kill the Loch Ness monster. Dougal is one of the
very few people on Earth to be able to make, or even better, defuse a bomb whilst
being so drunk he can hardly sit up. Underneath the flak jacket he wears for such
purposes is a smiley taped on his crotch, which he reveals to taunt and shock the enemy.
Nikodem Maksimov, the Heavy, is a machine-gun wielding Russian hulk. His interest
for his weapon (which he calls Sasha) seems to be closer to love than to simple
appreciation of its quality and effectiveness. Due to his size, he tends to pick
on pretty much anyone else, calling them "babies"; it's understandable that hardly
anyone reacts angrily at such a behaviour. They'd much rather take advantage of Nikodem's
thickness, as it's much easier to outsmart him than his bullets.
Billy DeWitt, the Engineer, used to work in the Texas oil and gas industry
before getting interested in weaponry; he never totally gave up wearing those
dungarees and hard hat of his though... During his free time, he likes watching
rodeo, playing the guitar and designing deadly tripod-mounted contraptions. Along
with Egon, the Medic, Billy's one of the members of the team with the most education.
Egon Fleischer, the Medic, used to be part of the Bundeswehr, but then left
Germany due to lawsuits for fishy experiments he conducted as he designed his Medi-gun.
That device of his heals much more effectively than his trusted bonesaw and syringes,
which he now exclusively uses to save his own life (mainly by performing "super fast
surgery" on whomever threatens him). The word he loves the most in his mother language is
Barry "Bazza" Sutherland, the Sniper went through hard times in his native Australia,
where he went crocodile tamer to hunter, from hunter to poacher, and from poacher
to sniper for whomever would want to use his sharpshooting abilities. His tendancy
to shoot animals in the head has always prevented him from bringing back hunting
trophies, but has proved very useful in his new job. When he's not hidden somewhere
and pointing a laser at peoples' foreheads, Barry likes having a cold beer
while listening to didgeridoo.
Simon Couturier, the Spy is a French secret agent who was looking for a job
in a non-national organisation when he was hired by BLU; he loves being sent on
important missions to retrieve confidential data, taking out lethal traps with gadgets and
coming back to safety while the building he's just come out off explodes in slow
motion. He wears a suit by a famous French fashion designer and a balaclava by a
fancy and expensive terrorist supplies provider.
