The Crown Prince of Damcyan, rulers of a desert kingdom that thrives on trade. Edward would rather sing about battle than take part in it, for which some name him a coward. In his travels with Cecil, the courage within him begins to shine through.
Edward could be recruited into the party during the Special Event Forbidden Treasure as the First Time Reward for completing the Easy battle during the event's fifth phase. Before The Burning Blade, he had been a reward for completing the Bonus Quest "Complete Antlion's Den Elite (IV)". He has since appeared in the Challenge Event A Summoner Grown as a supporting character.
Edward is the Damcyan Prince. His combat role is Physical Support
Much like Gordon before him, Edward appears more a troubadour than a fighter; he is neither very strong nor exceptionally durable in battle. Using his talents to buff the party or soften an enemy is not out of the question, though. Instruments are quite rare as a weapons class, so the player would do well to keep an eye out for those, giving Edward his signature skills.
