Background/History: Oy joined the Ka-Tet on the way to Lud to find Blaine. At first the Ka-Tet didn't think much of the animal who seemed to bond to Jake. But as time went on, they all began to realize Oy was much more than any other Bumbler of this 'age'. Most Bumblers were no better than any dog, but it is well known at one time that a Bumbler could be taught to imitate voices and noises like a parrot. Over the ages, as the worlds move on, Bumblers became more feral and forgot how to be trained and talk. Oy showed that not only did he possess the ability, but could also relate thoughts and feelings through his 'mimicry'. At first it was cute, but then they realized just how smart a Billy Bumbler Oy was. Oy received his name from Jake because of Oy's mimic ability. Usually only the last word of any sentence was repeated by the bumbler and without the ability to do many hard letter sounds, the sentence "What's your name boy?" came out of Oy's mouth as "Oy". From then on, that was the name of the bumbler.

Personality/Motivation: Oy seems content to stay with Jake and like any good animal companion he is very protective of Jake to the point of risking his own life for the boy. Oy to this point will only trust strangers if Jake does it first. Oy will listen to other members of the Ka-Tet if Jake isn't around for some reason, but his ultimate goal will be to get back to Jake. To this end, the Ka-Tet has found him intelligent. Near the end of the series Roland was surprised to see how well Oy could express emotions and intelligent actions. Jake had told Oy to stay with Roland to the very end for a purpose. To this, Oy did exactly what Jake said and stayed with Roland.

Quote: "Oy! Ake! Oland!"

Powers/Tactics: Oy fights like any animal, but with more tactics. He knows how to coordinate with Jake and seems to know just what to do. His actual fight skill is that of a wolf or a dog. Knock over your opponent, pin and crush by the neck. This has taken many unwary people by surprise, and to their deaths when dealing with the Jake-Oy pair.

Appearance: The best description of a Billy Bumbler is that of a small dog and a raccoon. The patterns in the fur are that of a raccoon like shape and the tail is fluffy like a raccoon as well. However, the paws and head are very much canine. Apart from that, Oy is very expressive and intelligent in his eyes and through his voice.
