Edward has four siblings in the form of his triplet siblings in William, Myreesa, and Mary Shephard, and he also has his brother Taylor Shephard of whome is a member of the Order of the Red Dragon and has grown to be as influencial as he is. He is married to fellow Order member Emmy Shephard of whom he has a young son with.

Edward Shephard was constantly angry while he was a young member of House Shephard and during this anger he begin to exhibit certain deadly habits. As his violence threatened to spill out of control his parents removed him from the general public and sent him westward where he was placed in charge of a small garrison in the keep of Vorhelm. During his time at Vorhelm he befriended a group of youths in the nearbye village that made their living by robbing merchants travelling on the roads nearby. Amongst these bandits was Emmy Pratter and alongside her he became a member of a powerful bandit gang that became notorious enough that he was ordered to put an end to them by the highest ranks of the nearbye village. Since he was in charge of the garrison he made little effort to actually stop them, and this led to a continued question of what he was doing in Vorhelm. His cousins Jack, and Sawyer Shephard would be sent alongside a sizeable force of House Shephard to deal with the situation and when they arrived the usually unemotional Edward found himself unable to turn against those he had come to love, and this led to him abandoning his post and joining the bandits in the forest. The conflict would become known as the Dolburger Conflict, and would be a bitter fight which was eventually won by Jack, and Sawyer who in the final battle captured their cousin and his bandit wife Emmy and brought them north where they were placed in the prison of Ostfeld. In Ostfeld he and Emmy would establish a dark control over the other inmates of the prison, and they would eventually become so powerful that their influence spread past the prison. As this happened they became known by Ezio Ederiz of whom petitioned to have them removed from the prison, and added into the Order of the Violet Dragon. Despite a strong appeal by Jack Shephard Edward and his wife were released from the prison and became members of the Order of the Violet Dragon.

Emmy Shephard1

Emmy Pratt was what Edward had been looking for his entire life, and not even war could stop him from trying to protect her.

"I found a companionship, and a love amongst those bandits in a way that I had never felt in my entire life. It wasn't that I agreed with what we were doing it was as simple as I couldn't not be with them. Even when it might cost me everything in my life I couldn't stay away from them, and I definetly couldn't stay away from her."
-Edward Shephard

Amongst these bandits was Emmy Pratter of whom he became deeply attatched to as they both found a peace in eachother, and their connection grew. As time went on she would persuade him to actually take part in the banditry, and as he did this their final bond was created. The love that the two held for eachother was above anything else either of them felt, and for this reason she was able to finally forget the horrors of her youth, and Edward was able to move past his anger for a time.

Jack, and Sawyer Shephard arriving at the region would threaten the existence of the Truth Brigade.

"In the back of my mind I knew that there was the possibility of House Shephard sending in a larger amount of forces, I just didn't think they would send so many.

In that moment I realized what was more important then my birth family."
-Edward Shephard
