Osric was ostensibly a fictitious persona developed by Adria, fulfilling the role of the village librarian on his homeworld who guarded the village's archives. In 2006, as Osric, Adria led SG-1 and Ba'al to the Sangraal. Dr. Daniel Jackson discovered that Osric was a false persona after Osric quoted a verse from the Book of Origin, in addition to having worn a ring on which Ori text was inscribed.

It is known if Osric was an actual person that Adria impersonated or an entirely fictitious individual that Adria invented. However, as Osric is only seen being a persona of Adria, this article describes him as such.
