Once a beautiful and magnificent castle, Oswald's home is now partially in ruins, having been dissolved in the great Thinner Disaster. Parts of it seem to defy gravity, at least to anyone unfamiliar with toon physics. There are statues, paintings, and stained glass murals of Oswald, his girlfriend Ortensia, and various places from Wasteland all through the castle.
Oh yeah, and chandeliers. Lots and lots of chandeliers. It even gets mentioned in-game how Oswald has a lot of chandeliers.

Bottom level: Mad Doc's former laboratory

Just what you'd expect, a giant laboratory... with a bunch of broken machinery in the middle. There's also a giant hole in the wall here, where the Moonliner rocket crash landed soon before Oswald came to Ink City.  Makes a nice door, but it's not very secure.

(Oh yeah, what an awesome portrait of Oswald. He's a king, yanno.)

Throne room:

Fairly basic, a long rectangular-shaped room with a throne at one end. It has two levels, and along all of the walls there are large paintings. Some are happier than others. Most of the paintings are at least partially dissolved, as well as large portions of the floor. Watch your step, especially up on the second level.

(Throne room starts at 5minutes20seconds)

Fireworks Control Tower:

A large, open-air, circular room, high in the castle. It's where Oswald used to set off fireworks every night in Wasteland, before the Thinner Disaster. On one side there is an empty pedestal, where the petrified remains of Ortensia stood before the castle was transported to the City.

There are many other rooms, all following the same 'half dissolved, random Oswald portraits' theme as these. Use your imagination. It's a castle, lots of space, even if half of it is dissolved.
Currently, Oswald and Ortensia live here.

Other Characters: N/A

Name:  Oswald the Lucky Rabbit
From: Epic Mickey

Age: 84, though mentally and emotionally in his 30s.
Gender: Male

Personality: Oswald is adventurous, often mischievous, and very competitive. Though he is at his core very kindhearted -- as kindhearted as one can be without actually having a heart -- it can often take him a while to trust someone, especially if it's someone he believes has wronged him in some way. And boy oh boy, can he hold a grudge. 
Backstory: Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks created Oswald the Lucky Rabbit in 1927 while working for Universal. However, due to a budget-related dispute, Oswald was stolen and Disney went on to create some mouse named Mickey as a replacement. Though he tried to hold on to his celebrity, Oswald was no match for Mickey's rising fame, and soon fell into the shadows and was forgotten. The magician Yen Sid created the Wasteland, a world for all of the forgotten toons, such as Oswald, to live peacefully. Oswald soon became crowned the king of the Wasteland, and he lived there happily for many years with his 420 children and his girlfriend, Ortensia. Though he had no Heart (for a toon's Heart only exists if they are loved by their fans) and thus no hope of escape back to the real world, he at least had them. Not, of course, that this stopped him from trying everything he could think of to earn back his Heart, but let's just say that's a hobby.

This all changed one day when the Wasteland came under attack from the Shadow Blot, and giant, evil entity, and the Great Thinner Disaster, a tidal wave of paint thinner that destroyed everything in its path. Oswald went up against the Shadow Blot, but at the last moment, Ortensia sacrificed herself and was placed in a statue-like sleep. Oswald did manage to seal the Blot in a jar atop Mickeyjunk Mountain, but drippings still leak out, forming Blotlings that wreck havoc in the already destroyed world.

To top it all off, the Mouse himself arrives one day. Mickey Mouse, the man who stole away Oswald's life, in the Wasteland. Sure, he was trying to help fix everything, but just as Oswald is ready to forgive him... Mickey lets slip he is the cause for the Thinner Disaster. Enraged, Oswald accidentally breaks the cork holding the Shadow Blot in the bottle, and it escapes, even larger this time than it was before. It catches Oswald and Gus and forces Mickey to trade his Heart for their lives. Now they must all three work together to not only defeat the Blot, but get Mickey's heart back so he can go home.

Moral Standing: Oswald is essentially good, though he can get carried away and has a tendency towards selfishness, which frequently could be seen as not quite so kind. He really means well, and only wants the best for (most) people.
Dreams: Oswald has always wanted little more than for his Heart to be returned to him so he could leave the Wasteland and finally resume his life of cartoon stardom. However, since the thinner disaster he has also longed for the Wasteland to be returned to its former glory and his darling Ortensia to be healed.
Fears: Oswald is very insecure about being forgotten. He's scared he'll be stuck forever in the Wasteland, forgotten in the shadow of Mickey's fame. He also fears he may never be able to repair the Wasteland.
Extra: He can detach his body parts, if the need arises, such as taking off his fluffy tail to use as a sponge for spills.
