History

Bandit's Landing
Edmund's role is more of a cameo, and his history corresponds with Saints & Scoundrels.

Saints & Scoundrels
Edmund is the third son of a Cygnaran noble. His upbringing was fairly sheltered, and he has been given everything he could possibly want or need. He took part in fencing and shooting lessons with his brothers, but never took interest in them the way his brothers did, instead spending a large part of his childhood and youth with his nose in a book. His brother Albert, six years his elder, practices law and will inherit the estate, and John, four years older, is a commissioned officer in the Cygnaran Army. Edmund, by order of birth, was destined for the Church of Morrow. They had a sister, Ann, who was born when Edmund was seven. Ann was a sickly child, however, and died at the age of five. Inspired in part by his sister, Edmund chose to pursue a career in medicine. He studied at the Sancteum, after which he was ordained and given a post at a free medical clinic run by the Church.

Beneath the Midnight Sun
Edmund’s history in the alternate storyline is largely the same, though Cygnar translates roughly to England, and, while religious, he was never ordained a priest. He made the decision to go to medical school in the US because he wanted a change of scenery, but also in pursuit of a fresh start, without scrutiny from the press (or harassment from his brothers). While attending med school, Edmund met Alister, who he sort of took under his wing. Alister is aware that Edmund's family is well-off, but the fact that they are titled nobility is something Edmund keeps to himself. Currently, he works in a small group practice, where he specializes in general prenatal and pediatric care.
