Edge Maverick is the captain of the SRF-003 Calnus, and the main protagonist of Star Ocean: The Last Hope. Edge is a stereotypical hero, with blonde hair, strong beliefs and uses a sword in battle.
Star Ocean: The Last Hope
Ever since accompanying his father on an expedition across the wastelands of post-World War III Earth when he was a young boy, Edge has dreamed of traveling across space and finding his own planetary paradise. To realize this dream, he
underwent special training at the rigorous USTA Academy and was selected for the inaugural SRF team, a position he had dreamed of attaining for years.
A responsible man with a deep-seated sense of right and wrong, Edge often hastily springs into action due to his straight-shooter personality, leading others to brand him as reckless. Perhaps this is one reason why his childhood friend Reimi Saionji is always lecturing him. A downside of his sense of his right and wrong is how much responsibility he takes for his actions. When he inadvertently sets the events in motion that cause the destruction of the alternate Earth, he blames himself fully for the event, leaving him in a deep state of depression. However, it begins to lift when Reimi is stricken with stone sickness during the party's time on Roak and finally ends completely when Sarah is rescued from the Purgatorium. His SRF spacesuit is sleeveless because he apparently volunteered to test a new, heavily-armored prototype; he removes its special arm guard for indoor work to make it easier to move around.
Edge becomes the captain of the SRF-003 Calnus after being the only one not seriously injured by previously unnoticed hostile life-forms after it's crash landing on Aeos. He is one of the 3 survivors of Project Hope, the other two being Reimi and Crowe F. Almedio.
Edge specializes in sword skills, but also possesses basic healing and light magic. His high strength, defense and HP make him ideal for the front lines, and his supportive symbols, while nowhere near Lymle, Myuria or Sarah's, can get the party out of some difficult situations. His Symbolic Weapon spell can effectively give the party unlimited MP.
