Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Grew Up... with two sex therapists for parents. At a young age, he walked in on his father cheating on his mom with a client. His mother took the opportunity to explain what sex was. The combination of the events caused Otis's phobia of sex.

Living... in the British countryside with his now divorced sex therapist mother.

Profession... student at Moordale Secondary School and amateur sex therapist. Otis is a rather shy and awkward teenage boy who is near the bottom of the social totem pole. After Otis realizes he's quite good at giving sex advice, he and Mae Wiley team up to charge students for sex therapy.

Interests... faking masturbation, avoiding sex talks with his mom, and getting closer to Maeve.

Relationship Status... single until he starts dating Olga. However, even from the beginning, Otis's crush on Maeve is constant and obvious to everybody around them.

Challenge... getting over his phobia surrounding intimacy and learning how to be a good person.

Personality... sensitive, surprisingly funny, and earnest in the way only a teenage boy can be. Otis genuinely cares about his peer's well-being, relationships, and sex lives. Though he's not incapable of occasional pettiness—he tells the school's star athlete to woo Maeve with a grand gesture that he knows will be unsuccessful.
