Edgar Addington was born into a wealthy family on the outskirts of Chelsea. His father a wealthy shipping merchant and his mother heiress to a mining fortune, Edgar’s childhood was one of splendor, opulence, indulgence and spoils. He grew up expected to inherit his father’s business and studied maritime law. While attending law school, he fell in love with Louisa Sterling, a vivacious debutante, with whom he saw a happy and want-for-nothing future.
Unfortunately, Fate had other plans. Returning to his carriage from a night of boisterous fencing with his mates, he discovered that he had not only entered the wrong carriage…but that the horseman was altogether hellish looking. Terrified and unable to escape from the speeding vehicle, as a hail of thorns slashed about the carriage windows, Edgar soon found himself in Arcadia, stolen for the pleasure of his Keeper, The Marquise of Horrors.
There, under her thrall, he spent the next 30 years. Tortured. Dehumanized. And driven insane with teases of hope and release. By the time Edgar managed to escape her nightly torments, he was a mentally shattered lunatic, incapable of believing in anything but the solitude of incarceration and the comforting advice of the moon.
He returned to London and, during his more lucid moments, learned that his life had been replaced by a fake. A fake that had single-handedly murdered his wife and his parents and had squandered every last cent of his inheritance. He was devastated.
Winter Court found him after that. And attempted to put back the pieces. They gave him a new community, a new attempt at Clarity, and eventually after proving himself a calculating reader of people’s worst tendencies… the throne to Winter Court itself.
