Wee Willie Haggis is an agent with MI5 1/2.
Why the government agency is a "1/2" is not disclosed and is likely too secret for even the government to know. It is run by a bald, mustached pipe-smoker named Mr. Carr. What is implied is that Haggis is the man whose name comes immediately to mind to this director when a challenging mission comes in.
Haggis, known as 'The Spy From Skye', is very inch a Scotsman as would be appropriate being from that island off the West Coast of Scotland. Truth be told, though, since Haggis is a very, very short fellow, there are not that many inches involved. But he is definitely a Scot as shown by his strong accent and his constant wearing of a stylish tam to go along much loved kilt under a ubiquitous white trenchcoat.
Haggis the operative is a man who clearly enjoys his "gadgets". The first one we see is his "hover-haggis", a gyroscope-style flying balloon-ish contraption with a propeller on top, "just the job to beat the traffic problem". Another is the tam he loves which can, on the push of a button on his coat, instantly inflates lifting him a feet feet into the air, not to mention being a terrific cushion against blows to the head by a mace (yikes!). And there are the powerful magnets in the heels of his shoes which come in useful on occasion. He even has a "special Secret Service extendable tooth" (odd thing, that).
Haggis is a very fun and adventure loving fellow who is determined to accomplish whatever mission he is given but he also seems set on having a good time doing it. He really enjoys his job and seems to take delight in the nastier any trap laid for him his is.
