Story Notes:

 Meet Leslie Baker

Leslie Baker is an OC I created awhile back to be secretary to Vance. I have used him in very minor roles in a couple of stories ever since Vance appeared on NCIS. Leslie will have a larger role here. (I know that we once saw a female secretary, Pamela Cook, for Vance in the season 7 episode Borderland. I am pretending that she was filling in for Leslie while he was on vacation.)

Yes, Leslie is a ‘he’. ‘Leslie’ is an uncommon name for a man in the US, but as they say, people with uncommon names usually channel the energy it takes to face the ridicule they might get, and often go on to do great things. Several US presidents had unusual first names (Lyndon, Ulysses, Grover, Dwight...)

I don’t often describe my OCs, but Leslie stands out so clearly in my mind that I want to share him. He is about 29 or 30; 5 foot 10 inches; thin to the point of being skinny, with slightly shaggy blond hair that hangs down close to his eyes. This gives him a sort of hooded cobra or vulture look. He’s not seen to smile very much, and in fact often looks dyspeptic. His remarks are usually sardonic, or snarky, when he can get away with it. However, he is an excellent secretary, very loyal to Vance, and would never put his boss down. He knows how to behave when he must. Vance thinks he’s a gem, and would be lost without him.

A/N: I’m using the same SECNAV that I had created and used in stories long before the show gave us a SECNAV. I like mine better; he’s a nicer fellow.
