Osvif is embraced because of his skills in crafting, and becomes Toreador. Osvif becomes part of the Farmand Lineage. The scars on Osvif heal, except for those on his right leg. He continues to have to heal them nightly with the usage of blood.

1067 AD - 1130 AD - Osvif lives in relative silence in Herjolfsnes. Only leaving when summoned by Narses, or others of the lineage. During his time, he starts creating works of art, which he gifts to the other Jarls around Herjolfsnes. Making political ties and securing himself alliances.

1249 AD - Osvif takes a commission job to carve a wooden bust for a nobleman. He Moves to Northwestern France, where he befriended a Order of Trinitarian Monks, One of them being Brother Sebastian. Osvif interested in learning that of other religions, requested the services of Brother Sebastian as a tutor. Although it was strange that there meetings only took place after dusk. Brother Sebastian just assumed it was because of Osvif’s burns. After a year of tutelage Osvif made his true self evident to Brother Sebastian. In hopes of having a reliable Servant. And Osvif was ready for a childer.

1250 AD - Osvif never forced Brother Sebastian. It was his decision if he would be embraced. Osvif was very open about the process and what he would become. Answering any questions the Monk had. For the next few months, Osvif allowed Brother Sebastian to know of his secret, and question rather he wanted to be changed. When Brother Sebastian finally agreed. Osvif performed the embrace, causing a minimum amount of pain as possible. Months after Brother Sebastian’s Embrace, the two were working closely with one another, and Osvif bumped into Brother Sebastian, Brother Sebastian assumed that Osvif could not tell that he was keeping a rather large secret from him. When the two bumped into one another. Osvif felt womanly curves in her torso area. In, truth, Osvif knew of this secret and had known about it for the last year.

1400 AD - 1600 AD - Osvif continues to live in Herjolfsnes, before the settlement finally collapses. Historical records do suggest that ships from Europe arrived less frequently owing to the worsening sea conditions. The Norwegian Crown and Roman Catholic Church (through the Archdiocese of Nidaros in Norway) eventually abandoned the colony to its own devices, although some Popes were aware of the situation. By 1448, Pope Nicholas V lamented that Greenland ("a region situated at the uttermost end of the earth") had been without a resident Bishop for about 30 years. These concerns were echoed in a letter dated circa 1500 by Pope Alexander VI, who believed that no communion had been performed in Greenland for a century, and that no ship had visited there in the past 80 years.
