A veteran of the Imperial Navy, Edgar spent most of his service with the 154th Battle Rider Squadron, which saw a lot of action in the Fifth Frontier War. Unlike his many years in uniform, he can now be found wearing brightly colored "Hawaiian-style" shirts; Edgar appears like he just walked off of a cruise ship from some tropical paradise. Even his ballistic cloth jacket worn planet-side has bright patterns of palm trees and beaches on it.
Edgar is very straightforward and always tells it like it is. He feels honesty is best when dealing with people, and expects the same. Nothing aggravates him more then when he thinks someone is sugarcoating something bad they need to tell him. Edgar has lost all respect for the structure and culture of the military.
Edgar has never been one to hold back his opinions. Sometimes this abruptness caused disfavor amongst his superiors. Many times he was passed over for promotion, while others junior to him were moving up in rank. Edgar took this personally. Augments that verged on insubordination with his commander provided incentive for his superiors to help him "retire" with a retirement benefit he chose to take as one lump sum.
A very capable engineer, now Edgar seeks to make enough money through trade on the Wayfarer to realize his dream of buying a small island on a warm, quiet planet. He whishes to spend the rest of his life relaxing while those he left behind in the military still stab each other in the back to get ahead.
