Angus McPhee is regular patron of Coffee of Doom, while he originally didn't drink the coffee (but has started) he does talk to Faye a lot and has feelings for her. He was originally unnamed and only known as Argument Guy until an encounter in a bar had his identity revealed. He has since been shown to live with a room-mate named Marigold at 14 Elm Grove Lane, Apartment 8 in Northampton and has developed a closer relationship with Faye.
It is revealed that he knew Marigold from college not just as a shut in but as a person and was concerned about her well-being.
Angus is employed as a professional strawman, paid to deliberately lose political debates by the opposing side.
The only thing known about Angus's early history is that he apparently came from a wealthy family.
