Oglevee was originally the name of Kevin’s small town. But, as I kept using it, I started getting too much of a ‘back in St. Olaf ‘ vibe from the name.
way too much effort into coming up with plausible fake hometown names for these guys. They’re all based on actual places but aren’t actually those places. That way I can avoid all research have some freedom with how I depict their backgrounds while approximating real neighborhoods that I’ve never been to.
No one from Flossmoor would ever be like that? Good thing Dana’s from Rosepine, Illinois. Who makes the best burger in Utica, New York? Don’t care because Quincy’s from Lawnville. Etc. So I get to be sort of authentic without being nailed down on the details. Because who wants to be accountable for anything really?
