Background/History: A member of the Church of Violence, Eda is one of the more mysterious characters in Black Lagoon. We know nothing of her background, except for a few hints dropped in Episode 18, Mr. Benny's Good Fortune, in which Groovy Guy Russell comments that he's seen Eda before—in Washington DC. Eda declares that's impossible, as she's from Alabama, but then states she's actually from Langley, Virginia. When Groovy Guy Russell exclaims that makes her CIA, she shoots him. This, of course, leads to speculation that Eda is still active with the CIA and that the Church of Violence is a possible CIA front, or that Eda is working undercover.

Eda first appears in Episode 7, Calm Down, Two Men, reappears for the vampire twins arc (Episodes 13-15), and is fairly central to the action during the Greenback Jane arc (Episodes 16-18).

Personality/Motivation: For someone who seems older than Revy (i.e. who's in her early 30s as opposed to Revy's mid-20s), Eda's maturity level seems a bit suspect. For example, when not dressed as a nun, she tends to wear short shorts, a midriff bearing tank top, and act like she's a college student on Spring Break. One thing is for sure—Eda is one of the most greedy people you'll ever meet, becoming virtually paralyzed with indecision at the sight of Gretel (see "his" character sheet for more) waving large wads of cash in front of her face. In addition, much like Revy, she can become bored rather quickly and decides to stop hunting the vampire twins mainly because she's tired of driving all over town looking for them. She also seems to be overly curious as to Revy's sex life, asking Revy several times if she's gotten anywhere with Rock (either that, or she's trying to find out if Rock is free for the taking). Of course, if she's CIA, this might all be an act, and if it is, it's a damn good one.

Quote: "That room has worked four times out of seven!"

Powers/Tactics: Although Revy calls her a "second-rate gunman," Eda is no slouch her with Glock 17L. She uses it to good effect in the Greenback Jane arc (as well as several other weapons), and even manages to plug Shenhua several times (once Revy distracted her). She also knows Roanapura rather well and has various minor Contacts scattered around town. Her skills reflect her (presumed) CIA origins, and GMs might want to give her an additional equipment Perk for being part of the Church of Violence—she has access to all sorts of military-grade firepower if she needs it!

Appearance: Standing roughly Revy's height (about 5'6") or so, Eda has blonde hair that falls past her waist, blue eyes, and a rather well-endowed figure. She normally dresses in a full nun's habit (in the Thailand heat!) adding only a pair of purple-tinted sunglasses. When out of her nun's habit (see the description of how she dresses above), one can easily spot the tattoo on her upper right arm. It looks like a military crest or some sort, but I've yet to see it clearly.

Designer's Notes: Like many Black Lagoon characters, Eda was built around a Dark Champions package—in this case the espionage field agent. I edited her skills and such to fit with what is seen in the series, and added a few "placeholder" skills in case she really is CIA. As written, she makes a fine starting PC, but you can easily make her more powerful by upping her DEX and giving her some gunfighting super-skills (see Revy for more in that).
