|Japanese name||エディ (Edi)|
|Class||Myrmidon → Swordmaster → Trueblade|
|Title||Blade of Justice|
Edward is a myrmidon from Radiant Dawn and a member of the Dawn Brigade. He is a reckless, yet kind man who will not turn his back on his friends or country.
Prior to the formation of the Dawn Brigade and the events of Radiant Dawn, Edward lived on the streets of Daein with no family. He managed to keep his cheerful personality despite his terrible status in Daein, but he would still leave this lifestyle behind in a heartbeat. Edward started training with a sword in hopes of joining the Mad King’s War in order to move up in the world, but Ashnard’s death put an end to that opportunity. Once the Begnion Occupational Army started to do as they pleased in Daein, Edward fled from town to town, managing to survive. Edward soon met Leonardo, who was also fleeing the Occupational Army, and taught Leonardo some basics for survival. Leonardo, in turn, taught Edward some basics for fighting, and their friendship began to form. The two eventually met Micaiah, Nolan and Sothe and formed the Dawn Brigade to fight for a better tomorrow for Daein.
Edward is first seen in Radiant Dawn with Micaiah at Nevassa, the capital of Daein. The two are waiting for Leonardo but while they wait, they overhear a citizen’s cry for help against some local bandits. The two naturally charge in to defeat the bandits, and are joined by Leonardo later on in the battle. Although the bandits are defeated, the Begnion Occupational Army, who are trying to capture the Dawn Brigade, locate them, forcing Edward, Micaiah, and Leonardo to flee to their hideout. After reuniting with Sothe and Nolan, the remaining members of the Dawn Brigade, the group fights its way out of Nevassa for its own welfare.
Edward remains with the Dawn Brigade throughout their time together. Eventually he joins the Daein Liberation Army with the rest of the Dawn Brigade since their groups share a common goal. Once Daein is freed from the Begnion Occupational Army, Edward, just like the rest of the Dawn Brigade, remains in the Daein army under Micaiah’s leadership.
When Daein assists Begnion with their battle against the Laguz Alliance, Micaiah gives Edward the Caladbolg, a treasured sword of Daein, from Pelleas out of gratitude for his help in liberating Daein. Edward is overjoyed that he has access to this sword and happily comments how he feels songs will now be written about him after the war. Later in the war Edward talks to Leonardo about his desire for the war to end and to live his life in peace. However Edward does not plan to leave the army during the war and hopes to convince Micaiah and Leonardo to leave with him once the war ends. Leonardo gives him a powerful sword, a tempest blade, and comments that since Edward is so reckless it’s a perfect fit for him. Edward thanks Leonardo for spending so much money with Micaiah to get him this blade.
Once peace restores to Tellius, Edward leaves the army to live a more peaceful life. However, he does visit Micaiah, who is now the Queen of Daein, to bring her good news.
