Working together with Jack Cabot, Edward is a man always looking out to find people who can handle themselves and who can help further his boss' plans. He was originally hired by the Cabot family in November 2058, replacing a previous aide, Daniel. Highly recommended, Edward was groomed as a replacement, gradually eased into managing family affairs ever since his induction. The process was greatly helped by Wilhelmina Cabot, as the notoriously untrusting family matriarch took to young Edward fast. By 2077, Edward became an indispensable asset, integral to the well-being of the family. His contingency plans were instrumental in securing family members, Cabot House, and the Parsons State Insane Asylum in the aftermath of the Great War.

While it would subject him to prejudice, it also meant that Cabots would retain access to his essential skills for as long as necessary. Given that Edward was instrumental in both maintaining the power grid at Parsons and keeping it secure with a mercenary retinue, this was a development as fortuitous as it was lucky.
