Edd's life story is that of every typical childhood delinquent. Born in the sticks of Georgia he had a very strong Christian up bringing, and was scared into the beliefs he held. He moved to the suburbs with his family around the time he turned into a teenager and his experiences and friendships he would make there would change his life forever. It was not soon after his 13th birthday that he turned to drugs to fit in with the crowd.
Pills, Pot, Lean, even the occasional huff were not past him and his friends. It was around his 16th birthday that he started slinging. He had to, there was no choice in the matter. Being kicked out of the house due to his drug habits, he had to feed himself and get shelter. He was great at what he did. Not only could he control his supply, but he was also a mean distributor and enforcer. This however would be his downfall.
it was late summer one evening he was already a little to high and he was trying to contact a local who had fronted some smoke off him a few weeks prior. This douchebag named Ryan had been ducking him for weeks and it was starting to weigh heavy on his mind. Bad judgment fueled by drugs and his ego led him to do what he always did to people who owed him money, pay him a visit. Edd drove to his street and parked a block away from his apartment so Ryan would not see Edd's car. Edd walked the rest of the way there and banged on his door. Ryan opened up. Without thinking Edd dropped him. Ryan fell back and hit his head on the wall behind him. Edd checked his wallet, took the 33 dollars out and left.
The next day everything changed.
It was about 1 o'clock when Edd woke up that day to 43 messages on his phone. He checked them to find out his lowers were telling him the cops were looking for him to question him about Ryan's murder. This startled him, he only intended to knock him out. Edd knew he was fucked. He did not wear gloves, did not clean up the scene of the crime or anything there was no way out. And while he did not mean to kill him, there was no way that would ever fly in court.
It was a moment of panic, he could not go to jail, he could simply not do it, nor would he. He swore that he would kill himself before being incarcerated. That day he tried to lay low, calling around town trying to find anyone willing to give him a ride out, no one would. He left later that evening through the window out back of his house, if no one would help him he would help himself. He stole his neighbors truck a 1999 ford ranger and started driving. He ended up crossing state lines into South Carolina. This was unintentional. His original plan was cliche, flee to mexico. He now had to adapt, and get out of the country. He kept driving east. Eventually he made it to Charleston. There he would pull a great move, his own Houdini act. He snuck aboard a cargo ship headed out to sea at the docks. And out to sea he went.
Eventually he would find himself in Turkey. The ship had crossed the Atlantic and the Mediterranean Sea. Edd was scared shitless, needless to say. He had no idea what to do. He could not speak the native tongue. He could not read anything. He was lost, confused and hopeless.
After wandering the streets for a while he wound up finding himself a savior. A man that could speak English saw him sleeping on the street one night and took him in. The man that night, in very broken English explained to Edd where he was. It was at that time that Edd knew what he must do. In Chernarus, just across the black sea his brother was hired to do a job. He knew this, so he asked the man how to get there. They had a plan.
The man knew a owner of a fishing vessel that chartered on the black sea. He asked him to take Edd to Chernarus, and the captain agreed. However things did not go to plan. The captain ended up being some what of a shady man. And only brought Edd within a small eye shot of the sight of the coast and kicked him off board. From there Edd was forced to struggle to make it to land. He eventually made it, crawling up onto the beach he passed out. That is where Edd's journey in Chernarus began, and the quest to find his brother started, little did he know what was next to come.
