- " Officer Cottings! Always a pleasure to help the brave men and women of the Watch!"
- —Osric during a running fight with Officer Cottings
Osric is a minor character and member of the criminal underworld who is first introduced in the second issue of Dishonored: The Wyrmwood Deceit.
The Wyrmwood Deceit Issue 2
Osric is engaged in a sexual encounter with a woman in his home when Martha Cottings kicks down his door and demands to speak to him. Osric leaps out of his window, undressed, and flees across the rooftops, the Watch Officer close behind. During their running fight across the rooftops, Cottings avoids his thrown knife and dives into him, knocking them both through a skylight. Ensnared, Osric divulges all he knows about the weaponry being smuggled into the Old Port District, telling her to visit Wyrmwood Way and talk to Titus Grindle.
- Cottings and Osric seem to know each other, as he calls her by name during their running battle before she has a chance to utter it.
- Grindle's home turns out to be a trap. It is unknown whether Osric was aware of this when he sent Cottings there.
