Basil Exposition is a major character from the Austin Powers films. He works for British Intelligence as Austin’s controller, an M figure. A happy-go-lucky man, he is very fond of Austin, saying he is "irresistible to women, deadly to his enemies and a legend in his own time." He and Austin both went to the British Intelligence Academy together at the same time, presumably how they met. Basil often provides Austin with gadgets to help him complete his missions, and he is often seen wearing a carnation, even during his and Austin’s time at the academy.
Basil is a parody of the M character in the James Bond franchise. Moreover since, in storytelling, "exposition" is the revealing of background information required to understand the current action, Basil's surname is a joke on his principal function in the films: to provide Austin and the audience with the necessary exposition.
