Edgar is one of the two sons born to the late King of Figaro, who passed
away due to some actions of the Vector Empire. His brother is a master of
martial arts named Sabin, and when the King of Figaro died there was a bit
of confusion as to which son would be his successor on the throne. Of
course, Edgar and Sabin seemed to care the least about which one of them
became the next King of Figaro.
Sabin could not handle his father's death very well, and wanted to leave the
land rather than become King. After a private discussion, Edgar assumed the
responsibilities of being King and allowed his brother to do as he wished.
Aside from being King of Figaro, Edgar is a very intelligent engineer who
has designed a number of tools that he uses in battle. He is very "in touch"
with the latest technology, as he helped redesign Figaro Castle so that it
could move underground!
As a rebel faction called "The Returners" began to emerge to face the Vector
Empire, Edgar maintained a loose alliance with the Empire to keep them from
destroying his homeland. However, as the resistance movement began to gain
power, Edgar eventually decided to switch sides, as that had been his plan
from the very start. Figaro's resources were of great assistance to the
Returners, and helped them get Vector into a position to negotiate.
Vector soon went back on its agreements with the Returners, and continued to
search for ultimate power. Kefka, who was Emperor Gestahl's right-hand man,
betrayed the Emperor and used the power of the legendary Goddess statues to
completely reshape the face of the planet. Life began to fade away fast, and
Edgar had to find and restore Figaro Castle before he could go on; thanks to
a group of thieves he managed to fool, Edgar found his castle stuck
underground. It was a matter of hours before the castle was back to the
surface and back in business--now Edgar and his allies continue their search
for power that can compete with the power of Kefka.
