Octavius , also known as The Oracle, or his full name, Octavius Cloptimus, is the oracle of Skylands in Skylanders: Giants. He is the mystical being the Molekin in Molekin Mountain are closely connected to.

Story

Octavius was visited by the Skylander, Flynn, Cali, and Ermit, and knew what they were seeking. He helped the group reach the Lost City of Arkus, provided that the Skylander pass a series of trials for Octavius for his research that he wished to study about the choices the Skylander makes in the challenges.  He gives the Trial of Curage, in which the Skylander must defeat lots of Chompies or spiders, depending on which he fears most, the Trial of Heart, in which the Skylander must decide whether he or she would rather be a small fish in a big ocean or a big fish in a small pond, the Trial of Element, in which the Skylander must decide whther they would rather channel water or tame fire, the Trial of Knowledge, in which the Skylander must solve a lock puzzle or a crystal puzzle, and finally, the Reward, in which the Skylander must decide if he or she seeks the power of wealth or the power of knowledge.

When the Skylander passed his trials, Octavius gave them the coordinates for a shortcut to the Lost City of Arkus, as well as an Arkeyan Copter, as his magical way of saying thanks. He then offered the Skylander to return to his lair at any time, with his many doors always open for them.

Existence

Octavius isn't a normal being. In fact, he's not from Skylands, or from anywhere, necessarily. To meet with The Oracle himself, you have to believe in him. But most people don't; although they have heard about an Oracle, they never see him since they don't believe in him. The Molekin, however, can't see anything, so to them, it's quite normal to believe in things you can't see. So by believing in the Oracle, they were the first to meet him. The Molekin have had a special relationship with the Oracle ever since.[1]

Trivia

  • Octavious bears a slight resemblance to Marvel Comics' Shuma Gorath.
  • His trials may seem to vary and change each time the level is played, however, they do follow a set pattern. They change depending on which ones are chosen.
  • When first met, depending on which Skylander/Giant is used, he says his/her specific name.
    • He is the first NPC character to call the Skylanders by their names.
  • An oracle is a person who is considered to be a source of wise counsel or prophetic opinions.
  • Although Octavious is all-knowing, and can see into the past, and in some degree, the present, he has yet to see into the future, which is the nature of his current research.
