Edgar Roni Figaro
King of Figaro Castle / Returner
Father - Stewart Remy Figaro [Dead]
Mother - Crystale [Dead]
Brother - Sabin Rene Figaro
Edgar is a bit of a womanizer. He tends to take almost every chance to flirt with any woman, age does not seem to matter. He is nothing but curt and respectful to the women and acts the same way to most he speaks with. He is able to win the affection of everyone with his words and comes of very charismatic. Using the way he speaks, he can get information without difficulty and can easily convince a group to follow him. This is shown when he is able to get the Emperor's plan to kill them from a barmaid and convince a band of thieves to follow his leadership and break into his own castle.
On the flip side, Edgar takes his job seriously. His sense of duty comes before all else and he has a need to do the right thing. The man can be silly and care free, but think twice before threatening the things he holds dear. He would, and has gone, to the ends of the earth to protect what he holds precious. He isn't one to worry as he feels that things won't change just because you stress about it.
Edgar and his brother Sabin were both born in Figaro as heirs to the throne. Their mother had died at childbirth and their father died when Edgar was seventeen after having been poisoned by the Empire. On his deathbed, their father asked the twins to rule the kingdom together. The twins had completed the rite of passage to adulthood together. Why not rule a kingdom together?
However, with the lack of remorse for the king's death, Sabin begged Edgar to run away with him. Edgar, knowing that at least one of them needed to stay, flipped a trick coin to allow Sabin to leave the kingdom without any regret. This made Edgar the sole King of Figaro.
After taking over as King, Edgar aligns with the Empire. However, he is secretly working for the Returners with Locke Cole being his contact. When the Empire attacks Narshe to take the Esper, Terra is freed from the Empire's control. Locke brings the woman to Figaro Castle and Edgar agrees to keep her safe from the Empire. Though, the king does take his chance of flirting with her, all advances being shot down. Kefka eventually learns of Edgar hiding the woman and when Edgar denies it, Kefka attempts to burn down Figaro Castle. Thankfully, Edgar is prepared and Locke, Terra, and the king escape the Castle on Chocobos while Figaro burrows under the sand with the use of it defensive machinery.
On their way to the Returner's base, Edgar learns Terra is a true magic user and briefly freaks out. He takes a minute, needing to talk to Locke alone for a moment to gain his composure. When they make it to Mt. Kolts, they run into Vargas as well as Edgar's twin brother Sabin who he has not seen in years. Sabin finishes Vargas off before joining the group on their trek to the Returner's base.
When they arrive at the hide out, Banon convinces Terra to join their cause. The base is found by the Empire and Edgar leaves with Terra, Sabin, and Banon on a raft headed for Nashe. Sadly, they meet an enemy named Ultros who delays them. Sabin, protecting Terra's honor, jumps into the river to teach the squid a lesson and they are split up.
The three make it to Narshe but are denied entrance. They meet with the town elder but are unable to force the town to join the Returners. Kefka arrives at Narshe, along with Locke, General Celes, Cyan of Doma, and Gau. They defend Narshe. However, Terra ends up linking with the frozen esper and dashes off into the sky, disappearing. Sabin and Edgar speak and catch up before a search party is sent out to find Terra. She is found at the top of Zozo's tallest tower. An esper named Ramuh had been caring for her. He explains to the group about Terra and sends the group off to find the Esper Research facility in Vector, killing himself to assist them.
After performing in an opera, Celes is stolen by Setzer and he agrees to fly the group to the facility after she tricks him with Edgar's two headed coin. The rescue the espers and return to Terra. She finally comes to terms before heading back to Narshe. The convince the elder to side with the Returners and he does. The group decides that Terra is going to talk with the Espers at the gate and convince them to attack Vector. The plan is a partial success, however the espers go haywire before the Empire surrendered.
Edgar stays with Setzer and the rest of the group while Terra goes off to talk to the Espers. While staying in Vector, Edgar learns from one of hte barmaids he seduces about the Emperor's true plan to kill the Returners. Edgar warns the others and they all escape safely, meeting Terra and the group in Thamasa. They are sadly too late to warn the group and Kefka had already killed the espers and taken their power. He then begins to mess with the Warring Triad, disrupting the planet's balance and killing the Emperor in the process. The group fails to stop Kefka and the World of Balance is thrown into the World of Ruin.
The air ship had be torn apart and the group was spread out across the world. Edgar had learned from a group of thieves a year later that Figaro was trapped under the sand and that they had escape through the tunnels in the prison. He becomes their group's leader and names himself Gerad. Celes and the group find him, but he denies knowing them and plays the part of the thief till he is led to Figaro Castle.
Once there, he throws off his disguise, destroys the tentacles that had disrupted the engine, allow the thieves to take his treasure, and resurfaces the castle. He explains to the group had the thieves known his identity, they would not have helped him as he had thrown most of them in the Figaro prison.
He helps the group find the others, and they defeat Kefka. At the end, he is rescued by Sabin from a fallen girder. Now, he plans to rebuild his castle and get his kingdom back to it's former glory.
"The young king of Figaro Castle, ally to the Empire, and a master designer of machinery..."
First of all, your beauty has captivated me! Second... I'm dying to know if I'm your type... I guess your ...abilities... would be a distant third.
Guess my technique's a bit rusty...
You see, there are more girls here than grains of sand out there. I can't keep track of 'em all!
How old are you? (Relm answers "10") Here's hoping you'll be around in eight years
Look, don't you have a family? Just shut up and take it.
If something were to happen to me, all the world's women would grieve!
If it's heads, you win..... We'll choose whatever path we want, without any regrets....
Yeah. I got to know the gal who brought us tea. After a while she just blurted out the whole plan!
Watch your mouth! There's ladies present! I was a perfect gentleman!
Edgar let out a soft sigh as he shifted up from his bed. He had decided to take a brief nap before a meeting with Setzer. It had been a while since he'd seen his allies after defeating Kefka. The others were still helping with the rebuilding of the world. That left Edgar to get Figaro back up to scale and work on getting South Figaro back to the way things were. It was going to take a lot of work, but Edgar was confident.
Sadly, his day was going to be a lot longer when one of the guards burst into his room. There was a quick apology before he alerted the King of an attack. Edgar wasn't sure what was going on, but quickly collected his spear and followed. As they were heading out, a creature emerged from the floor and the King paused to blink. It started as a black liquid before shifting into this odd shaped creature with yellow eyes and antennas. It attacked the guard, injuring him before the King was able to run his spear thorough it. It quickly shrunk to the floor and made it's escape. "They've entered the castle. You stay here and tend to your wounds." The guard nodded before the King moved to follow the shadow.
In a way, these things reminded him of Shadow. It was ironic, but fitting. He quickly caught the creature as it joined it's friends. Edgar quickly summoned his Crossbow, firing on all the heartless and killing them on contact. "....What were they?" He asked himself, moving to check on the other residents.
