Background/History: Gilbert Chris von Muir is the runaway prince of the small desert kingdom of Damcyan. While escaping his princely duties posing as a bard named Edward, he met a beautiful young woman named Anna. He seduced her, and stole her away from her aged grandfather, Tellah. The young couple fled back to his home of Damcyan. However, not too long after they arrived, the kingdom was all but leveled and Anna killed in an attack by Baronian airships.

Edward was confronted by Anna's enraged grandfather and his companions, Cecil Harvey and Rydia. Only by Anna's dying words was Tellah convinced to spare the prince. Consumed with grief for his love, Edward agreed to travel with Cecil to spare others his pain.

Personality/Motivation: Despite his somewhat noble and outgoing bearing, Edward is essentially a coward. He will hide from danger if his companions allow him. If wounded, he will panic and retreat, leaving his companions to his fate. Despite that, he is still a noble young man, treating others with the respect they are due. He always tries to keep his cool, unless in serious danger.

Powers/Tactics: Edward's skill with music is such that he can effect even savage opponents. By playing his harp, he can fatigue and tire the opponent, and his singing can send an adversary straight to sleep. Note the "all or nothing" limiter; if Edward's singing does not put his target under 0 STUN, it has no effect at all.

Appearance: Edward is a young, handsome fellow. He has straight blond hair and blue eyes. He wears an elaborate bard's costume, including plumed hat and cape.
