Eddie is one of the NPCs in the game Silent hill 2. He, along with James Sunderland and Angela, are the only real (not a hallucination) characters in the game. Eddie is an overweight young man who was hated, picked on, spit on, just cause of the way he looked. From early on in life he became the target of numerous jokes. The worst part of it was the fact that Eddie couldn't do anything about it. Despite all the modern fuss about equality, Eddie is unable to do anything about his life. He doesn't have any friends, he can't get a decent job and he has no money, which prevented him from buying friends. Eddie is trapped in an endless circle of despair, punished, yet not guilty of anything.
Though because of his non-violent and passive nature Eddie tried to ignore the other people and forget about them but in the end and due to severe frustration he burst in anger and killed a dog and injured its owner in the process, he then flees to Silent Hill in an attempt to avoid the police. He witnesses some weird monsters in the town and even loses his appetite to a great degree. He makes his way to Pete's Bowl-o-rama and meets with Laura. She calls him a gutless fatso, but he just eats pizza. That means that he thinks everything that happened in Woodside is just some sort of bad dream. Eddie then meets with James under the Historical Society where he apparently killed a human.
The last meeting in the meat factory shows that Eddie has changed, he later admits that he actually kills anyone who laugh at him and this will eventually end up with him being killed by James after a fight.
- What does it look like? He always busted my balls.
- "You fat disgusting piece of shit! You make me sick!"
- "Fat-ass, yer nothin' but a waste of skin."
- "You're so ugly, even you're mama don't love you!"
- Well maybe he was right. Maybe I am nothing but a fat, disgusting piece of shit. But ya know what? It doesn't matter if your smart, dumb, ugly, pretty... it's all the same once yer dead. And a corpse can't laugh. From now on, if anyone makes fun of me... I'll kill em. Just like that.
- Do you know what it does to you, James? When you're hated, picked on, spit on, just cause of the way you look. After you've been laughed at your whole friggin' life. That's why I ran away after I killed the dog. Ran away like a scared little girl. Yeah, I killed that dog. It was fun. It tried to chew its own guts out! Finally died all curled up in a ball. Then "He" came after me, I shot him too. Right in the leg. He cried more than the dog.
- Killin' a person ain't no big deal. Just put the gun to their head... POW!
- That guy... he, he had it coming! I didn't do anything. He just came after me! Besides he was making fun of me with his eyes! Like that other one...
- Oh yeah! Why not? Till now I always let people walk all over me. Just like that stupid dog. He had it coming tool!
- Red pyramid thing? I don't know what yer talkin' about. Honest. But I did see some weird-lookin' monsters. They scared the hell outta me, so I ran in here...
- No, I just ran 'cause I was scared. I don't know what the cops are doing. Nobody will ever forgive me.
- She said she was fine by herself... She said a fatso like me would just slow her down.
