Original character, usually used as a fanfic or roleplay term to mean a non-canon character made up by the author or roleplayer.
Mostly either a from of the creator themselves, or someone else they made up and are usually beautiful and/or powerful.
1 (fanfiction) Most OCs wreak stories when they are centered around them, simply because no one cares about a character that someone else made up. Also, OCs are usually paired with whomever the author happens to have a crush on. Usually, OCs are unoriginal, and people get bored of them. OCs as background or semi-main characters in a story can make it good, though, if the author knows how and when to use them.
2 (roleplay) Roleplay with OCs can be fun, especially if it's an all OC forum. but if there are too many OCs on a canon forum, then it can be annoying. Especially if there is a person obsessed with their OC

Stands for "original character." A character created by a fanfic
author or roleplayer. Said created character does not belong to the canon
cast but is inserted anyway for entertainment.
Many OCs appear as long-lost family members, past lovers, or exchange students. These background stories provide alibis for the sudden appearance and previous absences of the OC.
OC may also stand for "other character," in this case representing an extremely minor character, introduced or mentioned but not extremely active in an original series.
I was reading a person's fanfic the other day. It was centric of their OC, but the original character they made up was pretty cool, so I didn't mind.
