- Your pin is starting to make sense; only an insane idiot would jump in front of a loaded gun.
- — Agen____t
Edgar is usually quite rational, and is very fandom-literate. He also wears a pin in the general shape of a teacup that says, We're all mad here! Come for the free teacup, stay for the fun! Join the insanity today! or something along those lines. He has several, and occasionally switches them around. Despite the pin, however, he tends to at least appear to be reasonably sane...a fact which is occasionally viewed with suspicion.
He also does his utmost best to avoid Dawn McKenna, after a time or two as her temporary partner. People like her are best in small doses, in his opinion, and preferably from a distance. He gets enough insanity from his tech.
Edgar hails from World One—namely, Switzerland and Canada. At some point, he slipped through a plothole into HQ, and stayed. Compared to Agen____t, he's a veteran, but that's not saying very much.
Edgar has been adopted by a mini-Balrog named Neinor and a mini-Luggage named Carrrot. Carrrot is a mini with an occasionally strong sense of justice, and would be seen to find no point in overly complicated human relations if it were able to talk. Neinor has a tendency to be sad and forgetful, and often wanders around the RC trying to find things. (Carrrot's tendency to swallow non-edible objects doesn't help, even though it does usually return them—eventually.)
- My equipment likes Monty Python.
- — Edgar
- Why is all of my equipment under the impression that it has a sense of humor?
- — also Edgar
Edgar's tech is... somewhat unique. It borders on sentient—alright, it probably is sentient, or one or two short steps away from sentience—and tends to show that near-sentience in quotes and references to various canons and fandoms. Whether or not Edgar is partially to blame for this (the other half falling on DoSAT) is a debate for another day.
- [Brave Sir Robin ran away!] something shrilled uneasily from somewhere under Carrrot’s lid. [Bravely ran away! Flesh wound! Get me a shrubbery! It’s only a model! Help!]
- — from mission "'Blade', or 'I'm sorry. I'm so, so sorry.'"
Edgar's CAD loves to quote Monty Python, and has a temper, as illustrated in the mission above. It shrills words instead of [BEEP!]s (unless muted, in which case the words appear on its screen instead), and quotes Monty Python at every opportunity. It also has a love-hate relationship with Carrrot the mini-Luggage; Carrrot does have an alarming tendency to swallow things for weeks at a time, and the CAD doesn't want to be next.
- [ALBATROSS! GREAT BIG BLOODY SEABIRD! ALBATROSS! AIN’T GOT CHOC-ICES! SOMEBODY COME LOOK AT THE ALBATROSS! GET IT WHILE IT’S FRESH! ALBATROSS!]
- — the console, upon receiving a particularly senseless mission
RC Pie's console has a tendency to alternate its [BEEEEP!]s with Monty Python quotes, usually when it's bored or has received mission assignments of the less-than-good type. Edgar generally responds with Monty Python-themed threats, which tend to work. Agen____t usually threatens to shoot it without Edgar's interference, which also has a high success rate, although it does make the console rather edgy.
While Edgar's D.O.R.K.S. is not at all as vocal or as Monty Python-obsessed as the CAD and the console, it has its own brand of humor. This humor manifests itself in, well, the shapes the D.O.R.K.S. manifests itself in. For instance, in a mission where it was brought in to fix cat-disguises gone wrong, it turned into a cat figurine. In addition, it likes to reference just about every canon it's ever been exposed to—for instance, a light-saber for Star Wars, or a dead parrot for Monty Python, or a mockingjay pin for The Hunger Games. It often matches forms to missions, but not always.
