"That Felix... when he designs a holosuite program, he doesn't fool around."

Felix was a holoprogrammer and creator of several holosuite programs enjoyed by his good friend Julian Bashir aboard Deep Space 9. Fond of programs based on Earth's 1960s, Felix's creations included the Julian Bashir, Secret Agent program, and Vic Fontaine's Las Vegas lounge program. (DS9: "A Simple Investigation", "His Way")

In his later, more elaborate program, Felix made the main character, Vic, completely self-aware, so that Vic knew (and was comfortable knowing) that he was merely a hologram. This helped Vic fit the persona and attitude of a 1960s lounge singer. This self-awareness allowed Vic to access Deep Space 9's station logs, comm system, and other holoprograms, as well as the ability to turn himself off if he wanted. (DS9: "His Way")

Felix secretly embedded a jack-in-the-box subroutine in the Fontaine program, which sprang to life in 2375. Designed to "stir things up a bit," the jack-in-the-box consisted of mobsters Frankie Eyes, Tony Cicci, and big man Mr. Zeemo threatening to end Vic's very existence within the program's universe. (DS9: "Badda-Bing, Badda-Bang")

This character was only mentioned in dialogue.
Felix appears in the novel The Long Mirage, which gives his full name as Felix Knightly. He is described as a person of colour, The short story So a Horse Walks into a Bar... gives his name as Fritz.
