Oie transparent Ozpin
But perhaps victory is in the simpler things that you've long forgotten. Things that require a smaller, more honest soul.
~ Ozpin


Ozpin is the headmaster of Beacon Academy. He is introduced in the episode "Ruby Rose", inquiring Ruby Rose about where she learned how to fight, her future goals, and her desire to join his school. He is frequently seen with his cane despite having no visible motor impairment.

In secret Ozpin runs a group which consists of several individuals whose goals are keeping the people of Remnant safe from both the Grimm and other unseen threats to peace. Known members include Professor Ozpin, Glynda Goodwitch, Qrow Branwen, General James Ironwood and the headmasters of Shade and Haven Academies.

At the beginning of "The Next Step", it is indicated that the villains believe Ozpin to be killed by Cinder's hand, though in "Of Runaways and Stowaways", doubt is cast on this when Salem interrogates Cinder about the matter once more. In "Family", Ozpin speaks to a Mistral farmhand named Oscar Pine through a connection later revealed in "Punished" to be that their souls have combined.
