How Ed joined the Tourney
After being rescued by Balrog, Ed was taken into the Shadaloo Base by the boxer. Despite being taken into refuge, Ed would constantly suffer nightmares that would go on as he prematurely ages into a teenager. He and Balrog would then travel to India but Ed was still unsettled by th nightmares he's facing. Suddenly a fortune teller appeared behind Ed, she foreshadows that he would have difficult times ahead. Balrog would then meet Guile and Zangief and ask Ed's help in combatting them.
Later on, after the fall of Shadaloo and the death of Bison in A Shadow Falls, Ed and Balrog take refuge in a waterfall at New Zealand. However, Ed experienced another one of his nightmares and was about to be possessed by the spirit of M. Bison himself. Ed fought off the spirit and prevented it from possessing him before leaving the tent they're sleeping in to travel elsewhere. Balrog woke up and asked him what was troubling him. Ed somberly replied that he feared if they stay together, Balrog would eventually get hurt, to which Balrog stated that Ed is too weak to hurt Balrog and that chumps like Ed should shut up and follow orders.
Angered and annoyed, Ed retorts that he's no chump and that the boxer's nothing without him before telling him to go away, while at the same time remembering fonder times together when Balrog was training him and praising him. This erupts into a fight between the two of them, with Balrog insisting that he can't hurt, but Ed prevails. Balrog, in a very uncharacteristic moment, expresses sadness by sobbing while he tries to hide behind his usual wall of toughness and anger, revealing that he didn't want Ed to leave and genuinely cared, and likewise, so did Ed, who leaves behind his only friend and paternal figure.
Months pass and Ed would grow into a muscular young adult. He then states that his destiny is controlled only by himself, and sets out with several new companions by his side, now the commander of an organization known as Neo Shadaloo.
With Neo Shadaloo born, Ed begins invasions on the Water Tribes. He first uses Psycho Power to kill Arnook's bodyguards and orders the tribe leader "Surrender all of your tribes to Shadaloo, or face annihilation. If you surrender, we'll treat you with charity and kindness.".
