In the video "The Manifest", Noah shows the name of Edward's father in the list from the "East Coast Assembly Manifest" from March 1985, along with the name of Mary Asher and other members of "The Order". What Edward's father's involvement was with the Order and whether Edward himself was involved is still unknown.
In the video "Crawlspace", Noah tries to get information and answers from this same manifest of the Order. In the middle of several notes maded by Noah, he writes at the top left corner "Call Edward." He considers this idea but soon gives up and decides to call him another day.
- Device Analysis
- His father's name appears in "The Manifest"
- Mentioned in "Crawlspace"
- The second page of the manifest appears in "1.2", same manifest that contains his father's name (see The SCRINIARII Code)
- It has been speculated that Edward probably helped the Collective to make a device that could monitor Noah's activities. This is unlikely, due to him only being able to guess the USB cable, which is pretty mysterious on it's own, given the time he needed to investigate the makeshift recorder. And in the description of the video, Noah mentions that he was visiting near his "area'', inducing that he lives far from it. As a final note, Edward gave advice to Noah about preventing data being installed on his computer by telling him which wires to cut to prevent it, something the Collective wouldn't tell him to do if he was with them.
- it is possible that Edward is Swain or Deadhead's vessel, going along with the theory above.
- Edward's father or Edward himself could each be a member of the Order.
