Osu is incredibly intrigued by ancient books and has amassed a very impressive collection of rare, vintage books. His collection is locked in a fire-proof safe room and insured for several million dollars. Osu travels the globe attending private auctions and visiting libraries in search of more books for his collection. He is the most intellectual person anyone could ever imagine. Unfortunately, Osu does not talk much and has little interest in people. He lives alone with his border collie, Caesar, and rarely entertains guests. He finds most people unworthy of his company.

What does Om mean?
In Hinduism, Om (also spelled Aum) is a Hindu sacred sound that is considered the greatest of all mantras. The syllable Om is composed of the three sounds a-u-m (in Sanskrit, the vowels a and u combine to become o) and the symbol's threefold nature is central to its meaning. It represent several important triads:
- The three worlds - earth, atmosphere, and heaven
- The three major Hindu gods - Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva
- The three sacred Vedic scriptures - Rg, Yajur, and Sama
Thus Om mystically embodies the essence of the entire universe. This meaning is further deepened by the Indian philosophical belief that God first created sound and the universe arose from it. As the most sacred sound, Om is the root of the universe and everything that exists and it continues to hold everything together.
