Osman is the Spy Master of Al Kharid[2]. He can be found inside of the palace in Al Kharid and a member of the Lumbridge Secret Council, representing Al Kharid. He cannot be accessed until the player completes Stolen Hearts.

HistoryEdit

Osman moved to Al Kharid at some point prior to Year 169 of the Fifth Age with his daughter Leela as the Head of the Palace Guard. He had a reputation for being strict and disciplinarian.[3] He caught a local thief, Ozan, in the treasure vault of Al Kharid, supposedly in the act of stealing the Kharid-ib.[1] He banished Ozan, threatening to arrest him if he ever returned.[4] He also had Khnum expelled from the Palace Guard.[5]

In Year 169, Ali Mirza, son of Emir Shah and heir to Al Kharid, went missing. Osman was ordered to find him. He caught Ozan and an adventurer in the treasure vault and brought them before the Emir when they claimed to have information about Prince Ali. The Emir died before them, though Osman did not blame either of the thieves for it. He lifted Ozan's exile, allowing him to be an Al Kharid citizen again.

He later called Ozan and the adventurer to the treasure vault and did not give them instructions on how to obtain the true Kharid-ib nor did he tell them how to use it to find Prince Ali. When the Kharid-ib was lost to Amascut, he was forced to exile Ozan again.

Osman later went to Sophanem after being convinced by the adventurer and Maisa, one of his agents. He snuck into the city then the underground tunnels which collapsed while he was in them. He came to the adventurer's aid, helping them with the scarab that had attacked and possibly taking the dagger used to weaken it.

When Leela attempted to aid some monkeys with returning to the desert, Osman tracked his daughter down to Uzer Mastaba and berated her for abandoning her post for work he deemed unimportant and causing him embarrassment.

During the latest meeting of the Lumbridge Secret Council, he was kidnapped by Evil Bob and taken to ScapeRune and so wasn't present when the Culinaromancer was freed.

He used to be good friends with a Sorceress in southern Al Kharid though their relationship has soured to the point where she refuses to give him the sq'irks she grows, which he has a particular fondness for.[6] He rewards players who get him sq'irkjuice from the Sorceress's Garden with Thieving experience.

He will sell replacement Keris daggers for a fee of 20,000 coins. If the player did not take the dagger from the corpse of the scarab he will provide it for free once.

He will be involved in Menaphos.

He may be a descendent of Queen Senliten as he can move around Uzer Mastaba without being cursed, something only the queen, her family and their employees can do.[7]

PersonalityEdit

In this game, you have to be prepared for anything.
Osman, Diamond in the Rough

Osman is very distrustful, acting against his enemies and having plans on how to defeat his allies.[8] He places heavy worth on his role as spymaster, to the extent that others consider him obsessive.[9] He is considered to be manipulative, especially when it comes to his agents,[10] and considers people to be expendable.[11] His controlling nature, willingness to do whatever is necessary to achieve his aims and constant suspicions have greatly strained his relationship with his daughter Leela.[9][12]

He harbours a great distrust of Menaphos and the Pharaoh, believing them to be a threat.[13] He believes them capable of kidnapping[14], slavery and warmongering.[15] He considers any opportunity to agitate Menaphos to be a good one.[16][17] His actions mean that Menaphos have good reason to get hold of him.[18]

He has an interest in history, especially of royalty. He used to buy documents from Simon Templeton, regardless of their worth or state, but discontinued their arrangement when Simon grew suspicious. This has caused the two men to have mutual distrust of one another.[19][20]
