"I'd rather be struck down on the battlefield, than die in a bed..."
Edel is a playable character from Unlimited Saga. A retired outland knight acquaintance of Kurt's, who regards him as a mentor.
Kurt's Scenario: Playable Character, joins the party in Kimbali. Automatically in the party when the battle quest for Kimbali starts.
Armic's Scenario: Playable Character, joins the party during the mine adventure to find Venus' Mirror.
Edel has been battling a terminal illness which also left him blind.
In Armic's scenario, Edel is seen in the Vaftom Mines, and assists Armic in locating the item designated with the Metal element, Venus' Mirror.
Edel is an excellent combat character. Like Armand he has incredible physical stats and can deal large amounts of damage. His only drawback is a HP recovery rate of E, but this can be largely overcome with panels, good equipment and good support characters.
Edel's "Fortitude" panel is exclusive to him only. It reduces damage taken from magic and will never appear on a character's panel selection screen after completing an adventure (not even Edel himself).
