    Eddie is the biological child of Seth McCarthy, a fairly famous socialite and Ministry individual whom was known to strive for halfbreed rights throughout his life (and even marrying a Veela), and Ingrid Knotley. Given that Eddie's conception was out of wedlock for the both of them, the McCarthy patriarch bribed the Knotley family into keeping quiet, financing them extensively to ensure their silence. The couple agreed to the bribe and Jonah Knotley Jr. raised Eddie as his own son.

    Due to the betrayal Eddie's existence implied, he was never too close to Jonah growing up; rather, he clung to Ingrid instead, growing up to be very close to her. This proved to not be all it was cracked up to be as the woman perished from Dragon Pox when Eddie was just seven years old. He had to deal with the trauma mostly on his own as his father threw himself at work and hired a babysitter to take care of him and his younger sister. A few years passed and he was placed in Greyheme, effectively separated from her - this made it so the two never truly got a chance to get close to one another due to their four year age gap and distance between them.

    Being made to board, one could argue Eddie was raised by the school itself as opposed to his 'father'. In the meantime his biological father passed away around the same time Edward got into school, which effectively cut off the financial help he gave to the family. While there was still a substantial amount of money saved up to get Edward through school, it was questionable on whether Jonah would be able to afford Lisa's education in Penrose when her time came. This led to Edward being made to also spend his breaks at school and creating even a greater divide between all three family members.

    In the same week of his graduation from school, tragedy struck the Knotley family again: Jonah had met his end on the line of duty. This saddled Eddie with the uncomfortable reality of having a little sister to raise while working and studying to have a shot at a future himself. As he went through the family's possessions, he noticed the savings account was all but drained at that point and he would have to provide for both himself and Lisa somehow. Finding it to be mathematically impossible for him to be able to keep her in Penrose, he regrettably removed her from the school just before the new school year began, enrolling her in Tallygarunga instead, as it was public.

    That sudden shift in the family paradigm made him spend some time in Narragyambie, a city he had never visited before - yet, he was aware his family owned a burial plot within the cemetery, which was where his parents had ultimately been buried. Concerned for his own financial situation, he decided to sell the family home in Melbourne and move north. With a little bit more breathing room he finally pursued training for the Auror forces, just like his old man, out of a sense of pride. Working at the same time, he soon met financial difficulties again as the money left over from the house's sale didn't last as long as he'd liked.

    Through the move to Narragyambie, he left his sister to his own devices. He felt awkward approaching her - not because of the age difference, but because, despite worrying, there was no relationship there. He figured she'd be able to handle herself like he did all those years and let her breathe, but unfortunately it proved to be a mistake as she's grown obsessed with success. He doesn't know what to do or how to help the situation.

    Years passed and he succeeded in his training, becoming an Auror himself. One of the first things he did was looking into his father's documents to at least get some sort of insight on how he met his end; however, this made it so he came across hefty monthly monetary bank transfer records made to him from the late Seth McCarthy, starting roughly around the time Ingrid was pregnant with Eddie. He managed to put two and two together, but, what could he possibly do with this information...?

    • What is he going to do with the newfound information of Seth McCarthy being his biological father? Will he quietly observe his half-sister? Will he be interested in connecting with her? Will he take an interest in her inheritance? Will he even care?
    • Lisa's behavior when it comes to success is going completely off the rails. While he gave her more than enough breathing room to process what happened to the both of them, perhaps enough is enough - an intervention might be in order.
    • How aware is he of potentially falling into the family 'habit' of dying too soon by pursuing his career of choice? Is he extra careful? Does he feel like it's his job precisely because of it? Does he care?
