Here is another character I designed for Bucketheads in Oz. I believe Melody Grandy created this character for the book. This was one of the few characters that was very detailed on how she was suppose to look like.

Tempus the Parrot-ox

Oz has many great characters. When new writers make new Oz stories, they try to create interesting characters to join the pantheon of Oz characters. I thought I'd show some of my favorite from some of the non-canonical books out there.
I want to start with Tempus the Parrot-Ox from Edward Einhorn's "Paradox in Oz". The Parrot-Ox is a wonderful character who is "capable of doing nothing at all, unless it is impossible." I believe he belongs as one of the great Oz characters out there.
