Ozwyn contracted the Slayer's Take guild to harvest parts from an adult white dragon[5][6].

"Trial of the Take: Part 2" (1x19) Edit

The contract was completed by Lyra, Zahra, Grog, Percy, Scanlan, and Vex'ahlia.[7] According to the contract, Ozwyn obtained permission for the kill from the Holy Paramours of the Crown of Erathis.[6]

"Passed Through Fire" (1x69) Edit

When Vox Machina encountered Dr. Anna Ripley on the island of Glintshore, one of the barrels on her pepperbox pistol bore the name "Oz Gruude".[4] Ozwyn's name had not vanished by the time Vox Machina killed her, indicating that Ripley did not inflict her vengeance upon him.

Trivia Edit

  • As revealed by Matthew Mercer during the Fireside Chat, Oz Gruude was one of the four individuals who discovered Ripley's illegal experiments. Thus, Ripley added Oz's name along with the three others who turned her in to King Dwendal to Animus.
