Osmond is a character who appears in both Dark Cloud and Dark Chronicle, with changes to his character in the sequel. He is an inventor and scientist. In Dark Chronicle he is a high-ranking worker at the Lunatic Wisdom Laboratories and invents the Nova-Cannon for Max's Ridepod. Osmond is the same person in both games, as Moon People live extremely long lives through their connection to nature, although Osmond is more technologically oriented.
Osmond is a witty yet serious Luna-Lab worker, his main interests and assignments being creating robotic parts for machines. In Dark Cloud, it is mentioned that he loses his temper when he doesn't get his way, and that he is quite ruthless and ambitious.
He appears to be a Moon Person, like Pau, but hides behind a lot of clothing. He wears big goggles with red lenses which cover half his face, with a yellow and purple scarf covering his other half. In the first game, he wears something of a spacesuit, form-fitting with rubber gloves and boots, alongside a jet pack that is strapped to his back. In the second game, he wears normal Luna-Lab colors.
Osmond is a genius inventor in both games, taking little time to design and control both the Sun Giant and Ixion. In the first, he takes a large role, being the sixth member of the party. His most prominent feature is the use of a Jet pack, that allows him to cross with ease canyons that even Xiao, with her jumping abilities, cannot cross. He is also the only member of the party to use guns. However, if he uses a Laser Gun like his Supernova, he is not able to defeat the final boss due to his distance.In the second, he still takes a large role, being the driver of the Ixion once the crew gets it, in place of Cedric and the Blackstone One.
An example of his inventions would be the Nova-Cannon for the Ridepod. He had a hand in making Ixion as well, and pilots it. In Dark Cloud, he helps the party by assembling a robot called the Sun Giant for them to use in defeating the Dark Genie. He is also the sixth ally to join Toan's party.
Osmond also appears in another Level-5 game, White Knight Chronicles, as a guest character. In the game he is a pituitary and the leader of the wind walkers. His name changed from Osmond to Osmund in the game, but his appearance is almost exactly the same as in Dark Cloud and Dark Chronicle.
