Ed was the unnamed child in Balrog's Street Fighter IV endings and later a minion of the Shadaloo organization in Street Fighter V. He was created as a spare body for M. Bison, but he got kidnapped by Seth who placed him in the S.I.N.'s laboratory. He is recently confirmed as the third Season 2 Street Fighter V character. He first appeared in the headquarters of SIN and was found by Balrog, who took him away because he saw the shape of Shadaloo symbol on his hand and thought that he could possess valuable secrets. Later Balrog questioned him about his abilities, however Ed responded that he is powerless on his own, Balrog responded to him that he is useless but he mighty be useful later on.

Here he is a valuable minion of the Shadaloo organization which trained him and evolved his Soul Power into the Psycho Power thanks to having M. Bison's genes. He meets Charlie which asks him where Bison is, the latter showcase his Psycho Power and taunts him for being a dead body, before he could attack Charlie, he is joined by F.A.N.G who fought with him and lost, after that he stated that he was annoying and escapes thanks to F.A.N.G smoking poison.

He later reappears along with Balrog in the latter story prologue, here they are confronted by Urien, who is interested to give them a high quantity of money in exchange for their work for him and all the data and information about Bison Operation C.H.A.I.N.S, but they are interrupted by Necalli who was seeking to devour strong souls. After Necalli was defeated by Balrog, Urien concluded the affair.

Ed makes his playable appearance in Street Fighter V, appearing as an adult. Due to Shadaloo's experiments, Ed aged faster than normal humans. His fighting style is based around boxing (taught by Balrog), but his powers are enhanced by having M. Bison's genes and Psycho Power.

My first impression of Ed.... is meh. I'm not sure Ed is what SFV "needs" at this point in its lifespan. M. Bison gets away with the evil dictator thing. It was the 90's. It worked. So Ed is another blonde-haired, blue-eyed fighter to join Blonde Fighter V... with a Nazi-esk uniform to boot? Oiy. Yoshinori Ono, your direction for SFV continues to surprise me. Is Ed really going to make sense and be effective in the storyline? Because it he doesn't, Ed will be the epitome of what went wrong with Street Fighter's lore between SF4 and SF5. He was just a little kid in SF4, and now he's fully grown... and way more buff than he appears in the early SFV story. I understand the whole "spare body for M. Bison / enhanced with Psycho Power thing".... but this character just seems like a long walk for a short drink of water. 

Playstyle-wise... I'm not sure yet. Mixing Balrog and M. Bison? I guess that might work (maybe)... but it also seems a bit lazy and uninspired. Nonetheless, I'll give my full review of Ed very soon.
