Edward Merriman is the father of Felicity Merriman. She refers to him as "Father."
Edward was in most ways a kind and loving father to Felicity, being that he understands her daughter's love for horses and the outdoors, much to his wife's chagrin. He gained a reputation all over Williamsburg, Virginia as a noble and respected citizen, even when he decided not to sell tea during the Revolution.
He runs a popular general store in town with help from his slave Marcus and Benjamin Davidson.
Role in Benad's parodiesEdit
Merriman, who earned the title of Grand Master of the Antic Order from the Williamsburg Antics Guild, played minor but key roles in some of Benad's parodies.
Edward made a cameo appearance in Hitler Reminisces: Adventures on Skull Island along with several other Parody Universe figures as they fled from a spooked herd of Apatosaurus, and in turn were chased by a pack of Venatosaurus. He avoids being crushed, eaten, or knocked off any cliffs. Unlike his fellows Gaddafi, Jodl and Yezhov...
It was mentioned in Himmler and the Jolly-Buzzer that Edward supplied the Mark II Jolly-Buzzer to Heinrich Himmler. The Jolly-Buzzer was invented in response to the Continental Army's demands for an effective antic device against British officers, but it was so popular that Merriman decided to sell it to the public in a cost-reduced version, leading to the development of the Mark II.
Later, he is a member of the Fuhrer's expedition into the Forests of Fegel to track down the kidnapper of Steiner. Characters from most key parody crews were also present, armed with various antic weapons (such as antic-modified Thompson submachine guns and rifles), which he likely helped build and supply.
