Appearance and Character
Edgar was a huge man of fierce repute and had a short temper.
When Prince Oberyn Martell was sixteen, he was found abed with Lord Edgar's paramour. A duel between the two ensued, though only to first blood due to Oberyn's youth and high birth. Both men took cuts. However, while Prince Oberyn soon recovered, Edgar's wounds festered and he died. Afterward it was rumored that Oberyn had poisoned his sword, gaining his nickname of "the Red Viper".
