[Nitro] The has_one/belongs_to relationship

Hello, I've tried rather hard to figure this relationship out, but I just 
can't get it to work correctly on the has_one end. I have some classes that 
utilize the has_many/belongs_to relationship, and those work fine.

The two classes are:

class Account
	has_one :character, Character

class Character
	belongs_to :account, Account

When I initialize Character, I assign the passed account to its account 
variable, and the relationship is established (and saved properly to the 
database). When I try to assign the created character to Account#character, 
however, it treats the character variable as a local variable. For instance, 
in Account:

character = Character.create msg.capitalize, self

Checking character outside of that method returns nil, and the character_oid 
database field is NULL. I tried using self.character and experienced the same 

Both classes include the Og::EntityMixin module, and both relationships are 
defined after I define my properties.

I really appreciate any help with this -- let me know if I need to post more
