Ed is one of the main characters in the upcoming "The New Players" novel, Book 3 in the series. He hails from the advanced and isolated nation of New Grelland, and is the youngest member of a powerful and influential family.
He is gifted with Flames of Tumult that generate within his body, which grant him hyper speed and strength, and the capability to think faster than most computers. He can also vent the electric fire from his eyes. He is also a skilled duelist, wielding his deceased mother's sword.
But there are draw backs to this power. He had to spend a year in sensory deprivation to accustom himself to his enhanced perception of time. His fellow Grells fear him, seeing an unstable weapon, rather than a person.
All of this was by design, not chance. His family engineered his lot in life, knowing the consequences it would inflict on him.
They had to.
Corsis always lurks on the periphery. And the Burnhelt's need every advantage they can get to fight him. It will not be easy, but Ed has spent his life girding himself for the trials to come.
He does what is hard.
