Dust billows as the file box lands on the table. While many archives in the Interdimensional Rumor Mill are unified in some way, this... definitely isn’t one of them. The accompanying Rumor Registry explains all of the contents... wherever it is... but for now you grab the folder labelled IF-3.18 and start reading...

Ovid Schofield (ram/rams/ramself) is an excavator who plays for the Ohio Worms.

Ovid doesn’t remember much of life before Blaseball. It was a simple existence. Ovid was built in Cleveland county, northern England, but when the county was abolished in 1996, everyone thought it only sensible that Ovid be shipped to the other Cleveland.

Across many years in Ohio, Ovid would spend each day happily digging near the giant hole, taking weekends off. Ram would get excited by the big cheers coming from the hole. When the crowd would shout “Two Scoops!” Ovid would dig a few quick scoops and celebrate like they were cheering for Ovid, ramself. Ovid enjoyed the simple pleasures of excavation, like returning a worm back where it came from, or making a mound of dirt slightly higher.

Then something changed. A signal travelled through the earth and into the giant expanding hole in the sky. Suddenly, Ovid felt something new. A drive to be more, to do more. So Ovid looked more closely around the area ram had been digging. There was more here than ram’d ever imagined! A whole blaseball stadium, a Cottage, dozens of people moving around that ram had never noticed before. Even someone shaped like ice cream!

Ovid longed to reach out about a potential shared love for scooping, but everything faded in and out until… Pop! Ovid was unceremoniously burped out the gigantic hole.

Ovid smoothly transitioned into sentience, making fast friends with the other Worms. Sometimes Ovid doesn’t immediately know how to cheer up a new friend, but ram has such a positive personality that it rarely matters. Something about Ovid’s new sentience spurs ram on to be a happy and loving teammate, even if that’s not what the team needs in the moment.

At one point, a NASWA engineer indicated that Ovid was malfunctioning, and was intended merely to be a tool for building [redacted] at the Wormhole. But upon realizing Ovid’s sentience, the engineer apologized profusely, and asked for an autograph: “I know how these things work, they’re all gonna be cheering your name in a few weeks.” Now that… that, Ovid would like to hear!

Under the influence of Drive, Ovid becomes extremely intense in pursuit of Blaseball excellence, remaining positive even in dire circumstances. In these instances, Ovid’s positivity can be grating to teammates, especially the realists on the team. In Blacklight, on the other hand, Ovid shrinks down into a golden sheep. While many other players become intense, excited, or party-focused while in Blacklight, Ovid just wants to be petted.
