He took his nickname from ''Eddie the 'Ead'', the mascot for the band Iron Maiden. Couzin Ed constantly feels he must prove his masculinity, and even loses his pinky finger attempting to "master" his butterfly knife. He constantly belittles and humiliates Lazlow on air, and often questions his sexuality and radio skills.

It is unknown what happened to him afterwards. Ed has a noticeably different voice between [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]] and [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], as he puts on a "radio voice" during his time as a DJ. It should be noted that Ed briefly reverts to his "normal" voice when he informs Lazlow that he may be "the only intern he ever fires".
