Oscar had a very comfortable upbringing as a child. Born in 1997 to brewery owners Lucy and Hubert Johansson, he was the second largest pup born, weighing in at 9 pounds 12 ounces at birth. His older sister Yolanda beats him at 11 pounds 5 ounces. He may have not been the first to tip the scale, but he was the first to be born anthro. His father was a taur, and his siblings were born taurs thus far. When Lucy held her son in her arms for the first time, she knew that he was going to be special.
During his first few years of life, he would watch his siblings work around the brewery. He would also watch his siblings play basketball once they were done. He was amazed by the sport. He would watch as his sister would get nothing but net time and time again. However, when he asked to be taught how to play he would always be shunned down, saying that he was too young. So, he took matters into his own paws.
When he wasn't helping around the brewery, he would sit in front of the tv and watch old basketball games. He would study the different positions and then test them to figure out which position was best for him. Oscar soon found himself as a BigFur, being able to play both the center and power forward position. Now it was time to join a team.
School was a bit rough for Oscar, having to work extra hard to secure a spot on the basketball team. After a couple setbacks, (and staying afterschool which seemed like forever to him, plus having to still do his chores at the brewery), his grades were high enough that he was able to make the team. Thru out junior high, he sat on the bench. Whatever minutes Oscar had on the floor was when he shined. He goes on to prove that he's worth more than just a spot on the bench. That he's worth being a starter. He earned his nickname ""The Saint"" for the many times he would save the team from losing.
In highschool, Oscar's life would change in 2013. His last brother, Henry, was born. This should have been a happy day. But unfortunately it wasn't. His brother was born two months early. Oscar putted off basketball to deal with his family problems. A year later is when they realize a horrible truth about Henry. He was paralyzed from the ""waist"" down. And since he was born a taur, (all of the other siblings born after Oscar were anthro) it would be harder to manage. Oscar himself took all the time away from basketball to help out with his younger sibling.
It was only til 2015, two years later, that he went back into basketball. Oscar had been watching a game at the time with his little brother by his side. He saw how mesmerized Henry was. The young pup would try to copy the players, even though he couldn't. That's when Oscar was given a thought. He should continue playing basketball and to get it on a professional level.
Oscar re-joined the team and together with his team, his family, brought home two championships trophys until his graduation in 2016. A scout had noticed Oscar's potential, and offered him a full ride scholarship to Chicago Bay. And Oscar took the golden ticket and he was on his way to college.
College Life/ Life Now.
He quickly adapted to life at Chicago Bay, something he never expected in the first place. He met Martin O'Connor, a student who hails from Germany and the two became good friends. They both played in the basketball team, and made it to the FCAA before being beaten. Even though he was beaten he swore right there that he would enter his name in the 2020 FBA draft. He hopes that one day, Henry would see him on tv and he hopes to make him proud.
When not on the court, Oscar wears a barrel around his neck. This used to belong to his father before he past away of natural causes in 2020. It was modefied to hold sports drinks. Oscar doesn't really have a prefered jersey number, his past numbers were 28 and 53. Oscar was recently nicknamed Barrels by the other draftees. He is also called Ol' Yeller and Jaws by Martin because he claims that Oscar is loud.
