    Oz has a lanky build with a height of 4 feet and 3 inches. As he is young, he will still continue to grow . He has dark chocolate brown hair and eyes. His left hand is his dominant hand but has learned to also use his right. He prefers dark colored clothing befitting his class.
    1875| Oscar is born as the 5th child and only son of Suzuko and Montgomery Layton. As his only heir, Montgomery demands that he is raised as britishly as possible starting with giving him an english first name unlike his sisters. This puts a strain on the couple’s marriage. He also made sure thst his son was raised as britishly as possible.

    1878| Suzuko starts her first year at Mahoutokoro. The children that he plays with starts to tease him of his half-heritage and his first name.

    1879| Sumiko starts her schooling. He also displays his first act of magic when one of the kids went to far with the teasing and Oz gave him antlers and a tail.

    1880| During the summer the whole family went to Britain except for her mother. Eiko decided to prolong her vacation and stay with their grandparents for a month. This angers their mother when she found out that his sister did not return with them.

    1881| Oz was due to go to Mahoutokoro next year but his father wanted him to go to Hogwarts. Saki disapproved of the decision and the two informally separated. Montgomery takes Oscar to Britain. This breaks the boy’s heart as he was very attached to his mother.

    1882| He settles in the British lifestyle faster than he thought but he still finds the culture odd and interesting despite it being taught to him even while he was still in Japan. Kiyoko marries.

    1884| The laughing plague spreads throughout Hogsmeade like wildfire. Luckily, none of his family were infected.

    1885|Suzuko graduates and stays with them as she had not been allowed to return to Japan.

    1886|Sumiko also graduates and lives with them.

    1887| The boy will be going to  Hogwarts in September.
