"I've got no time for antiques. You evolved the wrong way, losers!"
— Edward Wu, while facing Kure Erioh and Wu Xing


Edward Wu (エドワード・ (ウー) , Edowādo Ū), also known as The King of Hades ( (めい) (おう) , Mei-ō), was the leader of the Westward Faction of the Wu Clan and an affiliate of the Worm. One of the main antagonists of Kengan Omega, Edward had a personal vendetta with the Kure Clan.

Appearance

Edward was a large imposing man with a devilish face and slicked-back, light-coloured hair. He had black-sclera eyes with white pupils, like the rest of the Wu and Kure. Edward tended to wear loud short-sleeved shirts with smart pants and shoes an sunglasses that covered his distinctive eyes.

Personality

Edward was both outwardly confident and extremely dangerous. He took his personal business with the Kure Clan very seriously, more so than his affiliation with The Worm. He was also quite prideful of his Clan, deeming them to be quite different if not superior to the Worm.

Although he was prideful, Edward was respectful enough to acknowledge Raian's strength considering him at the very least someone interesting to have fun with.

History

According to the head of the mainline clan, Wu Xing, Edward is the leader of the Westward Faction of the Wu Clan, an offshoot group who traveled to the Occident, similarly to their Kure Clan relatives in Japan.

At an undisclosed point in time, Edward, and the rest of the Westward Faction, turned traitor from the Wu Clan, eventually becoming an affiliate member of the Worm. One of Edward's victims was Wu Xing's beloved, who would later seek vengeance against him.

At some point, Edward taught the basics of Guihun to The Other Tokita Niko, since the latter wanted his students to learn it. Lu Tian was the only one who proved capable of using the technique.

Plot

Kengan Ashura

In Hong Kong, Edward appeared with Xia Ji and a cloaked Fei Wangfang, discussing the failed retrieval and supposed loss of Tokita Ohma, noting that the latter was the last remaining heir to the Niko Style.[1]

Kengan Omega

Tracking Toyoda Idemitsu down, Edward requested that he be allowed to represent Purgatory in their contest against the Kengan Association. Toyoda agreed in exchange for why Edward wanted to join his side. Edward simply replied that the Kure have become an eyesore to be disposed of.

Later, called by Xia Ji to lend his student a hand in capturing Gaoh Ryuki, Edward arrived to find Ryuki had escaped and the student had been killed. Edward calls Ji and informs him that since Mumon's mess, all of Ji's students that were marking Ryuki were now dead. Ji casually reassures him that the situation was fine, telling him to have fun with Purgatory before hanging up. Despite his reservations, his accomplice reassures him they can trust Ji, before asking him about whether Ryuki was a fake or a true "Tiger's Vessel".

Even though he didn't personally join Purgatory's side in the tournament, Edward watched the fights inside Mt. Godslayer's hot spring pool. After the third round, Xia Ji visited him, expressing his anger for not securing Ohma. Edward simply responded that his fighter, Alan Wu, would take revenge for him. In the fifth round, Naidan Mönkhbat revealed himself as a direct subordinate of the Head of the Worm, to Edward's astonishment (and growing annoyance) at the Worm's secretiveness.

When Lu Tian was also revealed to be a Worm, Edward confronts Xia Ji with the Worm's secretive nature, and asked him if he was hiding anything from him. After Lu Tian revealed that he knows how to release his latent strength, it was then that Edward recognized that Lu Tian was the prodigy The Other Niko was so keen to teach it to.

During Alan's match against Kure Raian, Edward and Xia Ji went up to the gates to watch the fight personally. Upon Raian catching them in his sights, his glee proved to Edward that he was "too naive" for the outcoming. After Alan's death and acknowledging Raian's strength, Edward promptly hit Ji for his cowardice and seriousness on what was happening, telling him to relax.

Some time later, Edward and Xia Ji witnessed the arrival of The Other Niko on the scene, who recorded himself talking to Fei Wangfang. Despite not really understanding the reasons behind the Worm agents' actions, Edward understood the Head had precise plans and that the Worm gave up on Xia Ji, meaning that Edward didn't need to protect him anymore. Seconds later, Edward was found by Raian and so he decided to face him right there and then.

Aided by his "spares" Solomon Wu and Fabio Wu, the three of them managed to keep Raian at bay until the arrival of Kure Erioh and Wu Xing. With Fabio dead and Solomon fighting Raian, Edward faced the other two sword-wielding clan heads rather easily.

Later on during their fight Erioh, Raian, and Xing ganged-up on Edward and Solomon with Edward using his full strength on the three overpowered them, then Edward told Solomon he was an embarrassment and handed him a knife to kill them, then Erioh killed Solomon with his own knife.[2]

Shortly afterwards Kure Hollis and Kure Reiichi arrived to help.[3]

Edward would ultimately live on through his clone Gilbert Wu posing as his son and take over the entire Westward faction.[4]


Power & Abilities

Edward was a very powerful individual with a known body count consisting of many members of the main Wu Clan. His combat prowess allowed him to smack a fighter like Raian several meters away without any effort and to also match assassins of Kure Erioh and Wu Xing's calibre, even while they were armed. Even when both heads and Raian were using Removal against him, he could still keep up. As a testament to his abilities, it took the cooperation and coordination of three elite Kure combatants and the heads of the Kure and Wu to kill him, with Raian dealing the final blow when they couldn't kill him through assassination.

Guihun

As a member of the Wu Clan Edward was able to release his latent power and free his body from his brain limits. His mastery over the technique was so deep that he could even teach its basics to The Other Niko, an outsider to his clan. Edward's Guihun release rate is 100%.

Huisheng

Being the head of Wu clan, Edward possessed Wu Hei's ego through this technique. Despite despising working under others, even himself, he was still able to work and fight in sync with his 'spares'.

Trivia

  • Edward's favorite kind of meat was dry-aged grassfed Rubia Gallega beef.
