Ed was the unnamed child in Balrog's Street Fighter IV endings and later a minion of the Shadaloo organization in Street Fighter V. He was created as a spare body for M. Bison, but he got kidnapped by Seth who placed him in the S.I.N.'s laboratory. He is recently confirmed as the third Season 2 Street Fighter V character. He first appeared in the headquarters of SIN and was found by Balrog, who took him away because he saw the shape of Shadaloo symbol on his hand and thought that he could possess valuable secrets. Later Balrog questioned him about his abilities, however Ed responded that he is powerless on his own, Balrog responded to him that he is useless but he mighty be useful later on.

Here he is a valuable minion of the Shadaloo organization which trained him and evolved his Soul Power into the Psycho Power thanks to having M. Bison's genes. He meets Charlie which asks him where Bison is, the latter showcase his Psycho Power and taunts him for being a dead body, before he could attack Charlie, he is joined by F.A.N.G who fought with him and lost, after that he stated that he was annoying and escapes thanks to F.A.N.G smoking poison. He was able to finally escape Shadaloo with Falke.

He later reappears along with Balrog in the latter story prologue, here they are confronted by Urien, who is interested to give them a high quantity of money in exchange for their work for him and all the data and information about Bison Operation C.H.A.I.N.S, but they are interrupted by Necalli who was seeking to devour strong souls. After Necalli was defeated by Balrog, Urien concluded the affair.

Ed makes his playable appearance in Street Fighter V, appearing as an adult. Due to Shadaloo's experiments, Ed aged faster than normal humans. His fighting style is based around boxing (taught by Balrog), but his powers are enhanced by having M. Bison's genes and Psycho Power.

I'm not sure "Mr. Ed" was what SFV needed during that point in its lifespan. Ed is yet another blonde-haired, blue-eyed fighter to join "Blonde Fighter V". I don't remember being too hype when he was announced. Ed's debut in SFV wasn't terrible, but his default costume was a bit odd. His alternate outfits suited him better, for sure.

We were first introduced to Ed when he was just a little kid in Balrog's SF4 ending. Ed grew up pretty fast it seems... joining the fight in SFV. (The SF timeline can be confusing.) Cool character development by Capcom, at least. Ed's fighting style seems to take inspiration from a variety of places, including other fighting games besides Street Fighter, perhaps. I found him to be bland in SFV, but Ed's SF6 incarnation made me respect his design a bit more. As far as boxing characters go... I prefer non-magical / non-projectile ones (such as Steve Fox), but Ed's animations are cool in SF6. His grab move is so cheap. I think Ed lacks the charisma of the original cast, but he's okay.
