Edgar's wedding.

Edgar was married to Lillian Brandon and they had two children: Mary Alice Brandon and Cynthia Brandon. They lived in Biloxi, Mississippi. Alice was born with the gift of subjective precognition, but Edgar was never fond of her power, unlike his wife.

In Alice's late teenage years, Edgar had his wife murdered to marry a blonde Yankee from Illinois, Anna-Marie. When his daughter saw the truth in a vision, he had her committed to a mental asylum to hide the truth.

Physical appearanceEdit

Edgar was lanky and had thin cheekbones. His eyes and hair were dark brown. As a businessman of the early 19th century, he often wore a professional outfit.

Personality and traitsEdit

Edgar was loved by his family and appeared to be a hardworking man. Unfortunately, underneath the face of the man hid the heart of a selfish beast, who would take ruthless measures to obtain what he wanted, including harming the ones he supposedly cared about. He had always felt embarrassed and disturbed by Alice's visions, calling her out whenever he did not want to hear her stories.

EtymologyEdit

Alice's father did not have a name in the Twilight Saga. The name "Edgar John" was merely created for the short film, derived from a fan correspondent named Jennifer Spiteri, who found the name "Edgar" popular in the late 1880's. The middle name "John" was decided by the actor, John Emmet Tracy.[1]
