Background/History: Edsel is the Lady of the Lake to Mirth's Merlin. She recognizes Kevin for who he is immediately, calling him “my lord” and referring to herself as his “most humble and loyal servant.” At first she insists that Kevin should be told everything, until Mirth reminds of the danger this would present. He does tell her that "when the time comes for him to know, you will be the cause of it!". Unfortunately, this cause is her death.
Personality/Motivation: Edsel is devoted to two things, her car and Kevin. She will leap in to save (or aid) him, regardless of the situation. At one point she states: "It was my d--... De-lightful pleasure. 'Nuthin like a good scrap."
Quote: "The streets let you believe. In fact, if anything, life on the streets serves to open you up. When you're out in the open, you begin to realize that it is all here—the good and the bad, the clean and the dirty, the solid and the imaginary."
Powers/Tactics: Edsel doesn't have an real powers. What she does have is a a 1957 Corsair Model Edsel and a baseball bat she keeps on the floor of the car. Mirth "enchants" this weapon, resulting in a bright green magic baseball bat that gives Edsel power "...similar to a cattle-prod...." Later, Kevin picks up the bat, breaking the spell and revealing the weapon to be Excalibur.
Edsel's other main ability is courage. She tackles the Marhault Ogre armed with just her bat, fights Grackleflints, Redcaps, and Leanhaun Sidhe, and is even ready to toe-to-toe with the Umbre Sprite himself. As Mirth says: "She was so very brave this time...." The Umbre Sprite comments: "Your courage grows with each life you lead...."
It’s apparent from Edsel's comments that she’s a capable auto mechanic, and has fixed up her car so only she can really get it started.
Appearance: Edsel is a young, slim and dark skinned with shoulder-length curly black hair. She normally dresses in jeans, a black tank-top and purple gloves, boots, cap and jacket.
