Power Descriptions: making use of powerful osmian magic Oswald’s spells are spectacular to behold, kaleidoscopic in nature to the point of near garishness as he chants mystically and makes arcane gestures to direct the energies at his disposal with the practised hand of a master


History: If one were to ask Oswald about his life back home he would claim to be a simple wizard who rose to greatness and after leaving his work to his apprentice left to travel the worlds of the cosmic coil, this is not entirely true; He is indeed a wizard from the dimension known as Oz (almost identical to the world depicted by L. Frank Baum) he is infact that worlds former master mage and after being defeated in a succession duel by his former apprentice was exiled from his home reality to prevent an imbalance of power between the Cardinal Archmages of the Arcanocracy (his objection to that method of government was also a factor in his banishment)

Allowed just enough time to gather his personal belongings and to prepare his pet cloud sheep (Astra) for travel his aethernautic balloon was torn from its course by a cosmic Eddie (unbeknownst to him by the fairly recent terminus invasion) crash landing in what appeared to be a tornado veined with kaleidoscopic lightning.

He has since found his feet and using his extreme proficiency with transmutation magic purchased himself an idyllic Cottage and enough land for Astra to quite happily wander around

He has since come into contact with and arranged to work with the wood clan of cryptids around the emerald cities in exchange for small favours and the use of a dwelling within the city proper.


Personality & Motivation:
Though he has accepted that he is no longer the master mage of his home dimension and has never been one for earth prime he still feels that it is his responsibility as an Wizard to intervene on behalf of the everyman with the more malignant or mystic forces of the universe.

Nothing rouses his ire so much as evil mystics and his usually pleasant demenour vanishes like rain from a forge when confronted by them.


Powers & Tactics: 

An experienced and powerful caster, Oswald is a master of several schools of magic, though he has little talent and little intrest for Necromantic or mindbending spells he bears a tremendous natural talent for transformative spells.

Quite an old and out of shape man, Oswald is aware that he can quickly exhaust himself and so carefully assesses wether it is more prudent to try and overwhelm a foe or carefully conserve his stamina, he will prefer to see to any bystanders before engaging in combat



Outta shape: Oswald is quite out of shape and overweight, a mix of his advancing age and dependence on magic for day to day tasks, it is only chasing his escape artist pet that has allowed him to maintain his rather robust constitution, though he can quickly tire if over exerting himself and is prone to mistakes when strained so.

Wandering Lonely as a Cloud: Astra Is a Magical creature from Oswalds Home dimension, she much like a cloud desires to wander anywhere the wind blows and has a frustrating proclivity for escaping her pens and finding trouble

The circle is complete: Oswalds former apprentice was not of his own choosing but rather provided him by the cardinal council, a young and powerhungry magiocratic noble whom Oswald spent the better part of his tenure reigning in, it deeply troubles him that they now hold such an important position in Oz’s hierarchy and the dimensional landscape, for her part, Edraphine Dispises her old teacher and is most certainly not above using her powers and position to attack and spite him

Wibbly wobbly Mumbo Jumbo: Ozmian Magic is a school that requires gestures and incantations to function properly, if bound and gagged or otherwise deprived of the freedom to move his hands and speak freely Oswald can be denied the use of his powers, less total means my alter the intended effects of his spellcasting

Smoked Out: Oswald has a unique reaction to skin contact with smoke, in that he begins to turn into smoke himself, though this is not instantaneous and removing himself from the area allows him to reconstitute himself it is still an extremely traumatic experience and as such though he is practically fearless he still possesses and instinctual aversion to smoke and fire.

"The ranch" is a demiplane that Oz created in a long ritual to serve as a home to his less... disguisable pets and an escape from the world for those wood clan cryptids and allies of his that need one a near 1:1 model of the farm he grew up on back in his home dimension it houses numerous whimsical pieces of magical farm equipment and a comfortable manor house.

Lacking any form of innate defenses it is really little more than a magical vacation home for the old wizard and those he cares to share it with and his numerous pets.

Guests and resident animals are waited on by unseen servants composed of programmed magical force of various colours and the residences power is supplied by a state of the art Aethernautic Stormcore providing eldritch lightning to the systems.

Of note is the pool, attached to the freshwater lake that serves as both a relaxation spot and a place for those of a strictly aqueous nature to dwell.

Entrance requires that one have a specially created invite written in krakens Ink and sealed with the dark purple wax with the signet of Oz, difficult though not impossible to Replicate.

Nez pince glasses! Though that was mispelled either way and now is fixed.


And yes the idea for his magic was since his world is magically orientated their arts are less subtle and more ostentatiousand focused requiring at least two of the classic components.


Verbal, Somatic, Materials (for the ritualist feat) and Focus. For the most part he gets by on magic words and gestures but troublesome powers can be kaboshed by someone saying "you have no wolfsbane to cast that spell with." Etc.
