"Jimmy Osgood. Student of mystery."
Richie

Jimmy Osgood was a student at Dakota Union High School.

History[]

Jimmy was a very smart kid, but pretty much a loner. He preferred to surf around the Internet on his laptop rather than engage in social activities. He was bullied all the time by Nick Connor and his best friends as a result.

Virgil and Richie started hanging out with him, and as a result, he started becoming a bit more open. Frieda asked him to help on the Dakota Fright Fest, which he gladly accepted. He turned out to be the greatest help they could've wished for: with his creativity, he made scarier (and even better) decorations than the years before.

Nick, in the meantime, tried to make his move on Frieda. When he caught Jimmy (accidentally) eavesdropping, he chased him, beat him up and stuffed him in a locker. Frightened, humiliated and broken, Jimmy was helped out of the locker, but ran off in tears and didn't return to school for an entire week. Unable to take the bullying anymore, Jimmy took his father's gun, and pulled it on Nick at the Community Center. Richie managed to dissuade him, but as he lowered the gun, Kevin and Ray tackled him and the gun went off. Richie was shot in the leg.

The gunshot caused all outbursts to subside, and an aghast Jimmy curled up in a corner, crying.

In the end, Jimmy underwent psychological treatment in a juvenile detention center, while Nick was suspended from school and sentenced to serve community service for what he did to Jimmy; his friends received the same punishment.

After the incident, Jimmy left an effect on Virgil, who began to question himself about what he could have done to prevent Jimmy from hurting someone, and felt that Jimmy's kind does not belong in juvie.
