The young ruler of the desert kingdom of Figaro. For the sake of his subjects, he allied with the Gestahlian Empire, but a conflict with Kefka provides the opportunity for him to devote himself entirely to the Returners' resistance. While beloved by his people for his unpretentious nature, he is also known for being a notorious playboy.

Story[edit | edit source]
Before Act 1, Ch. 9: Utopia Niveus[edit | edit source]
When Edgar was summoned to the world of respite, he found himself unsatisfied with the path offered by either Materia or Spiritus, and did not trust Mog. He took his own path to discover the truth about the new world and founded the Returners, naming them after the resistance group in his homeland. Edgar recruited several other warriors who had entered the world.
The warriors first encounter the Returners when they meet Firion outside the palace at Malitia. They later encounter the others in Edgar's cohort: Layle, Shadow, Squall, and Lightning. They made contact with (and joined) Mog's party throughout their travels.
Act 1, Ch. 9: Utopia Niveus[edit | edit source]
Edgar meets Mog's warriors in person when their airship crashes in Utopia Niveus after Golbez's Red Wings attack them at Capta Est Tower. He joins the party after they defeat the monster summoned by the Emperor. While he had been working behind the scenes to discover the truth behind the gods and the world, Edgar joins the party himself at this point.
Act 2, Ch. 7: Respite's Authenticity[edit | edit source]
Edgar meets Ignis Scientia when Materia summons the latter to the world of darkness. After Ignis joins the warriors in their travels, he strikes up a conversation with Edgar, Steiner, Penelo, Lenna and Rosa. Edgar and Steiner tattle on Noctis for foregoing his vegetables that morning. After Penelo mentions how Ignis appears to be making a real effort to be approachable, Edgar flirts with her, making her uncomfortable. Ignis chides Edgar for his unapproachability.
As the warriors continue on they find that their ranks are being infiltrated by lifelike Jenova cell-injected clones of themselves who rapidly decay into monsters. At the heart of the mystery is the dark manikin of Zack Fair who exposes the infiltration to the warriors, beginning with clones of Tidus and Jecht. Zack reclaims his brilliance from his dark manikin and calls a strategy meeting, which Edgar joins and is stunned to hear that Sephiroth is behind the act to become the god of the world of respite by killing and usurping Materia. After Vaan reprimands Ignis for gathering intelligence from Vayne without telling the other warriors, Edgar explains that Vayne's motive as Ignis's informant is unsurprising as Vayne is ultimately interested in protecting his own world, even if it means sacrificing the world of respite and its gods. This puts Vayne at odds with Sephiroth, which makes it in his interest to align with Materia's warriors. When Noctis notes that the world itself hasn't changed much since Sephiroth seized Materia's throne, Edgar notes that this very fact is instructive. He speculates that Materia, whose existence is essential to sustain the world of respite, may not have been killed, and might have merely escaped. This is validated when Spiritus returns the badly injured Materia to the warriors, and instructs them to return her to her chambers.
