A clerk employed by the East Empire Company to act as an assistant (and to keep an eye on) Hugh Branch. He is typically seen around the city hurrying between meetings carrying one of his various colour coded ringbinders containing information on various threats to the fabric of reality and by all accounts has no understanding of the concept of irony. He intensely dislikes wizards who behave irresponsibly and endanger the consensus through their magics. He is currently dating a member of Hugh Branch's crew called Stephano.
As of Baker's Dozen Octavian has become a little more sombre after uncovering Hugh was behind the kidnapping of Joshua James's family… and being told that Wayfinders did not exist before the Upheaval… which obviously can't be true… can it? Having taken Hugh's old office in the East Empire Company, giving him the chance to finally reorganise his bookshelves, he is currently harbouring Stephano to keep him from the justice of the Watch. Although their relationship has become more than a little awkward. He is also instructing Joshua's child, Jeremiah, in the hope that he will become the “right kind” of Wayfinder.
As of The Last War Octavian became trapped in stasis, on the edge of life and death for all eternity, in the process of creating a new Serradic afterlife.
