Edward is a researcher in Pikmin Forever who crash-lands on PNF-404 and who sets Captain Olimar on a rescue mission. He is Koppai's top Pikminologist and technology specialist, who actually joined the research community because he was such a fan of Olimar's work. He is also a certified tester of the KHA explorer-technology relations program, studying how well research can progress between space explorers and robots. His first mission is on a research vessel, the KHA Lander, with a robot partner DELTA, to aid the space rover SOGNO in terraforming and colonizing PNF-404. This is the mission whose signal mysteriously falters, catalyzing the story of Pikmin Forever. Because Edward must be rescued, he is not a playable leader, but he is playable in Challenge Mode and Sandbox.
Edward never saw himself as a field researcher, and certainly never imagined venturing out and meeting Pikmin in person. He is quite afraid of the rumors of gigantic creatures on PNF-404 as he ventures out, but finds comfort and fascination in the helpful Pikmin.
|Edward's story (Pikmin Forever spoilers)|
|When the KHA Lander crashes into the Onions floating high above PNF-404, Edward and DELTA get ejected to separate areas. Edward falls into a large crater lake between other areas in the game, and swims to the shore of a small island, eventually named Sunset Islet. On the island he finds a proportionally enormous Pikmin tree, which fruits Onions. He also finds the SOGNO rover, tearing parts off of the tree to build colonial structures. When Edward tries to confront the SOGNO to stop it, the SOGNO beams him into its internal chamber for analysis. Inside, Edward finds several other flora and fauna trapped in its internal chamber. He tries to override the SOGNO's directive from within, but that only seems to make it worse.
At the conclusion of the game, he is freed from the SOGNO by Olimar, DELTA, Loucap, and the Pikmin. He expresses his gratitude and explains to them what the Pikmin tree means. He realizes how much influence Koppaites and Hocotatians have exerted on the life cycle of Onions and Pikmin, which persuades Olimar to decide that colonizing the planet is the wrong thing to do. Before Edward leaves, he almost wishes to remain behind and witness the tree's life and the growth of Onions, but he decides against it, returning home with the others.
