I always call him The Protagonist because, believe it or not, that's the character's name in the credits. We never learn his real name. It's also considered a joke in the plot. Remember at one point he claims to be 'the protagonist in this story' when talking to Priya (the Indian arms dealer), and she tells him 'you're not THE Protagonist, just one of the many protagonists in this story'. Then at the end, before he kills her, he says something to the effect of 'I am The Protagonist. I figured out that I don't work for you. We both work for me.'

That's when she realizes that he actually will be the founder of Tenet in the future, just before he kills her. It's little things like that, that I do like about the movie. It's very cerebral.

But yeah, his character was a little dull and flat. Maybe that's intentional, since he's not yet become the mastermind that will initiate all this in the future. He's never really in control of any situation until that scene in the car, at the end, when he kills Priya. Up until then, he's sort of just been along for the ride.
