Character History

Orientation

Edgar attends Joseph Sullivan's funeral. Later, at the Sullivan Bros. Carnival, Samuel Sullivan tells him to retrieve the compass. Edgar is reluctant to do so, saying he's seeking redemption. However, Samuel threatens Edgar using his terrakinesis. Edgar yields and Samuel promises it'll be the last time he asks. Edgar goes to New York City and attacks Danko, cutting open his stomach to get at a safety deposit key. Tracy interrupts him before he can recover the key. His knives prove useless against her water form, and she freezes his arm, disarms him, and he flees.

Edgar fights with Peter.

Jump, Push, Fall

Edgar watches the New York Federal Bank where he knows Danko has hidden the compass in a safety deposit box. When Noah Bennet and Peter Petrelli go there to use the key and recover the compass, Edgar badly injures the bank manager and enters the security room. Peter manages to touch him and mimic his ability. Edgar attempts to kill Noah with a thrown knife but Peter grabs it and the two fight. Peter proves the superior fighter and Edgar is forced to flee. However, he attacks Noah later, badly wounding him, and takes the compass. He then returns to the carnival to report to Samuel Sullivan that he failed at first because of an empath, but didn't have time to talk to Peter. Edgar then asks about "the Chinese guy" who will be replacing Arnold.

Fourteen years ago, Edgar shares a drink with Lydia at the Sullivan Bros. Carnival. She thanks Edgar for making her smile again and this makes Edgar happpy. The two friends decide to play tricks on the mean fortune teller. They find her telling a young Hiro Nakamura of his destiny before Edgar steals the crystal ball. Lydia and Edgar go on the Ferris wheel and both look into the ball, seeing what they most desire. Later, Samuel is angry at Edgar and slaps him when he calls the fortune teller an old hag, worrying what Joseph would think if he could hear him. Edgar then leaves Lydia to ponder on what she saw.

Graphic Novel:Running in Circles

Edgar remembers attending a soccer game in Bradford as a child with his father where a tragic fire erupts. His father tells Edgar to run as fast as he could from the stadium, which he does, leaving his family behind to die.

Edgar leaves Lydia to call her daughter.

Acceptance

Edgar speaks with Lydia about his concerns over their new family members. Edgar tells Lydia that if Joseph were alive they wouldn't be introducing so many new people to the carnival.

Edgar tells him that he has been grifting on the side, prompting Samuel to ask if Lydia knows about the grifting. She comes out of her trailer, asking what is going on, and Samuel remarks that since Edgar has been hiding money from the family, he needs to be punished.

Edgar murders Captain Lubbock instead of Sylar.

Tabula Rasa

Samuel gives Edgar the task of giving some admission tickets to Captain Lubbock and his family. Edgar is troubled by this and is even more disturbed when he learns that Samuel wants to use the Lubbocks to provoke Sylar into using his powers. Edgar later finds Lydia helping Sylar with some chores. He approaches them and tells Sylar that even though he has some pretty nasty tricks, he also has some. He throws some knives at super speeds and Sylar then telekinetically hurls Edgar into a wheelbarrow.

Later, Edgar speeds into the hall of mirrors and murders Lubbock. Soon after, Sylar is initiated into the carnival and everyone is happy except Edgar. Samuel tells him not to be so sulky and Edgar wonders why Samuel wants Sylar at the carnival. He then watches angrily as Lydia takes Sylar into her trailer.
