Person in the Iron Mask
From Team Fortress Wiki
The Person in the Iron Mask is a promotional headwear item for the Pyro. It is an iron mask painted gold, with a bolt ridge on the side of the mask to hold the two pieces together. There are also eye-slits and ear holes that issue a team-colored glow.
- The Person in the Iron Mask was added to the game.
- [Undocumented] The Person in the Iron Mask was made tradable and craftable.
- The name of this item is a reference to the Man in the Iron Mask, a prisoner arrested as Eustache Dauger in 1669 or 1670 and held in a number of jails across France for a period of 34 years. The famous writer and philosopher Voltaire claimed that he wore an iron mask and was the older, illegitimate brother of Louis XIV, the Sun King.
- The changing of "Man" to the gender-neutral "Person" is another reference to the mysterious identity of the Pyro.
- This item is based off an enemy in Bioshock Infinite called the Fireman, which is a "suited enemy that radiates and projects fire".
