Oscar Martinez

Oscar is known for being a rational, quietly efficient, and intellectual worker in the office, often the one who will ask pointed financial questions that his colleagues will not know the answer to, or that Michael avoids answering. Oscar refers to himself as being in the "Coalition for Reason" with Jim and Pam Halpert.

Oscar is considered to be a know-it-all by many of his co-workers. Oscar is frequently frustrated by the antics of his coworkers and tends to find their humor offensive.
