|Examine||The brave and magnificent Ozan, who writes his own descriptions.|
Ozan is one of the Signature Heroes. There are few as famous, charismatic, attractive and self-documented as Ozan! He doesn't consider there to be any worth in Runecrafting, Magic or Summoning, and is far too important to even attempt them. Instead he focuses his energies on telling magnificent stories (sometimes he even improves stories that are about the player completing a quest, by putting himself into the tale) and commanding the attention of those who care to listen. He's also pretty handy with a lute, believing that his destiny is fame, fortune and riches.
To underestimate Ozan and dismiss him as a simple entertainer would be foolhardy. Even the most powerful warriors need to find a way to unwind, and Ozan is no exception. The quiver he bears on is back is packed with arrows that are sure to make their mark whenever Ozan draws his bow. Ozan is a master marksman, and spends his idle time sharpening his skills.
Born in Al Kharid, Ozan is fond of travelling and will gloat that he has visited every place at least once. Incredibly brave and fiercely loyal, Ozan would be handy to have as a comrade-in-arms.
Life in Al Kharid
Ozan grew up living on the streets of Al Kharid, as his father had disappeared and his mother died before he could even ask her who his father was. His early years weren't exactly sad though since he befriended the food-loving palace guard Khnum, who always looked out for him and he also enjoyed living in Al Kharid, particularly the bazaar.
One day, Ozan stole a ruby from the gem trader but the merchant saw and tried to catch him. He managed to elude him by hiding in an alleyway and encountered Khnum. Khnum had always let Ozan get out of trouble, so Ozan assumed that Khnum had a similar past to his own and wanted to make him a palace guard. Later on, Khnum warned Ozan about the new head of the palace guard, Osman. Ozan nicknamed Osman "Big Snozz" and continued to converse with Khnum about other subjects.
Later, that evening, Ozan heard a beautiful voice singing an old Kharidian nursery rhyme called "The Cactus Lily" and followed it to the palace, despite Khnum's warning. He ended up breaking into the palace and met the singer. He called her a princess and tried to impress her by singing a couple of lyrics about "stealing hearts". This didn't seem to have the desired effect, as "the princess" quickly pointed her crossbow at Ozan, introduced herself as Leela and warned him that her father was the head of the palace guard, Osman. She questioned Ozan about his song of stealing hearts which made Ozan realise that there must be some sort of valuable item in the palace referred to as a "heart". Leela also told Ozan not to call her a princess. Suddenly, Ozan heard guards, who must been alerted by the commotion. Ozan tried to escape by climbing back up to the roof of the palace and sneaking into the diamond vault, containing the fabled Kharid-ib.
However, Ozan was quickly caught by the guards and placed in a cell, with Osman advising him to use his time to think about his recent actions. The next day, Ozan was given a choice to either be executed or to be banished from Al Kharid, never to return ever again. Ozan chose to be banished and had to leave without a chance to say goodbye to any of his friends. Ozan went to Varrock to make his own fortune.
Main article: Stolen Hearts - Spoilers
The player first encounters Ozan in person at Draynor Village, where he needs help to deal with some urgent business. His old friend Khnum seems to have connections with a dodgy gang called the Skulls and seems to be acting very shiftily. Ozan needs someone on the inside to meet with Khnum since he would be instantly recognised, but he warns the player that adventures with him tend to be a bit unpredictable. Khnum is in the cellar of the house Ozan is stood next to and Ozan needs the player to knock on the trapdoor, act as a thug and try to get recruited as a gang member. This is all to try and find out more about what's happened to Khnum since Ozan was banished from Al Kharid all those years ago. Ozan tells the player about Khnum and their friendship as well as the Skulls gang.
After the player infiltrates the Skulls and learns about a kidnapping they report back to Ozan, who is curious as to what Khnum means by "sticking it to my old employer". Ozan suggests that the two of them shadow Khnum back to his headquarters so that they can confront him. Ozan and the player follow the gang leader to an abandoned jail but, when confronted, Khnum is angry that the player has allied themselves with Ozan. Ozan finds out from Khnum that the night Ozan broke into the Al Kharid palace, Khnum was blamed for letting Ozan in. After 20 years of service as a palace guard, he was kicked out of the city and was angry that Ozan had left Al Kharid without saying a single word to him.
Ozan explains that he was banished from the city but sees that as no excuse for Khnum's actions and asks to help him. Khnum refuses Ozan's help since the Skulls are fine without it but suddenly a mysterious woman with a crossbow appears. Ozan assumes the woman is another one of Khnum's lackeys, although soon recognizes her as Leela and calls her 'princess'. Leela insists that Ozan not call her a princess but decides to trust him and the player. She has been following the trail of kidnappers who took Prince Ali Mirza and this has led her to Draynor and the Skulls. Ozan is surprised and angry at Khnum for being part of the plot to kidnap Prince Ali, but Khnum refuses to speak about the kidnapping. Ozan lets the player try to convince Khnum to give up information instead.
Practising in the Ranging Guild
The troll warzone
Before it was removed, Ozan was also involved in the Troll Warzone. Through this, Ozan used to first meet the player in Burthorpe, where they helped Major Mary Rancour with the war effort against the trolls. During Major Rancour's announcement that the trolls would be defeated, a guard was attacked, heralding a troll invasion. Ozan fought the trolls and the troll commander Morningstar with the player but was knocked out by a falling rock, leaving the player to deal with Morningstar alone. After the battle ended with the trolls defeated, Rancour thanked Ozan and the player for helping the Imperial Guard but admitted that there was still more work to be done. Ozan apologised that he could not help further as he needed to go to Draynor Village to take care of some urgent business. This then led into him being in Draynor for the start of the Stolen Hearts quest.
Later, however, Ozan would appear at the ceremony for the player joining the Order of the Talon and celebrating their help around Taverley and Burthorpe.
- In the RuneScape trailer, Ozan nearly gets killed by a troll and his life flashes before his eyes. This includes his early life in Al Kharid followed by a huge number of other scenes to numerous to mention.
