All About Oz

OzName: Daniel Osbourne

Nicknames: Oz

Date of Birth: Sometime in 1980

Marital Status: Single

Dating History: Unidentified relationship prior to Willow Rosenberg. Willow Rosenberg, 1998-2000. Veruca, 1999.

Relationship History: Oz was once a proper rock star, with groupies, but chose to go "groupie-free" before Willow (of course, he may have been kidding). There was a relationship (or relationships) before Willow, where he lost his virginity (as mentioned in "Amends"). The gender of the person he lost his virginity to has not been identified.
Willow and Oz dated from around February 1998 to November 1999. Their relationship became physically intimate in May 1999 ("Graduation I"). The relationship continued, with a minor split in late 1998 due to Willow cheating on him with Xander, until November 1999 when another werewolf named Veruca came to UC Sunnydale.
The physical attraction between Veruca and Oz proved too strong for Oz, and the desire he felt for her as a wolf was apparent even in his human form. When Veruca made a move to kill Willow, Oz protected Willow by killing Veruca. Because of this, Oz felt that he could not be around people, and went to find himself.
His separation with Willow became more definite in April 2000, when he returned to Sunnydale. Finding her about to begin a relationship with Tara, he then left again.

Supernatural History: Oz is a werewolf, having been bit by his young cousin Jordy in spring 1998. On his trip around the world in late 1999 to mid 2000, he discovered a way to control his three-nights-a-month transformation, through chants, spells, and herbs. But upon his return to Sunnydale, he discovered that if he was placed in a situation containing "negative stimulation" (whether electric shocks or discovering that your former girlfriend has found someone new), the wolf would return.
He has also participated in a number of vampire stakings, demon killings, and spell castings.

Family and Friends: His unseen parents (mentioned in "Band Candy"), Uncle Ken, Aunt Maureen, and cousin Jordy. His aunt seemed to take the phone call about her son being a werewolf rather calmly, so it must be assumed that his family do not react in the way the "normal" family would.
Friends include the "Scooby Gang" of Buffy, Xander, Cordelia, Angel, and Giles, and Devon, the lead singer of Dingoes Ate My Baby, who appears to be Oz's best friend. He was also friends with Debbie Foley, a student seen in "Beauty & The Beasts" and Theresa, a student seen in "Phases," plus several UC Sunnydale fraternity members.

Occupational History: Was the lead guitarist for the band Dingoes Ate My Baby, who were large on the local scene, playing The Bronze and various UC Sunnydale parties on a regular basis.
He has a high school diploma, but repeated his last year due to an inability to actually appear in class. He was a student at University of California: Sunnydale until he left Sunnydale.

Aspirations: E-flat, diminished ninth. It's a man's chord.

Known Likes: Hair dye, ice, amps, animal crackers, french-speaking monkeys, Radiohead, Cibo Matto, David Bowie, T-Rex, The Clash, Velvet Underground, thrift store clothing, guitars, comic books, and Willow.

Known Dislikes: Lack of self-control, being a werewolf, and mimes.
