Down the rabbit hole...
I have continually heard people say that Osse was a Vala on a number of different threads. But he is not. He is a Maia of Ulmo, the Vala of the Sea. He was also known as the Vassal of Ulmo, but he was not a Valar. I re-read the Valequenta in the Sil and it says that Osse was a powerful Maia and not a Vala.
Just thought I'd clear that up!;) :D :) ;) :) :D

he was eeeevviiiilll for a period of time also, until he came back to Ulmo...

Can't imagine the fellowship fighting both Osse and Sauron in the 3rd age :)

well I don't have the Sil in front of me, but I remember Osse was seduced by Melkor to his allegiance for a while, before he came back to Ulmo.

That's right. Melkor did seduce Osse with the promise of power. And although he came back to Ulmo, that rage never seemed to leave him. Of course, what else would you expect from someone that has so much influence over the weather?
