Raised by farmers in Swansea, Wales, Edward left his wife to become a privateer in the Caribbean. After a shipwreck and a run-in with a defector from the Assassins, he stole his robe and unknowingly entered the war between the Templars and the Assassins. After escaping capture from Templars, he hijacked the ship he was held on and claimed it his own, pursuing a life of piracy. After several years of chasing fortune, he lost more friends over time, leading him to finally work with the Assassins to locate and protect the Observatory, a Precursor device that could see through any person on Earth's point of view. After eliminating the Templar presence in the Caribbean, Edward relocated to London to father his daughter, Jenny and his son, Haytham. He travelled frequently, discovering the Grand Temple and a Shroud of Eden for the Assassins before he was murdered in his own estate by mercenaries.
