It was my second year in High Society after my debutante ceremony – though my first year in Society was well received, I was left with no serious suitor, only a few calling cards. It was at a Spring Herald ball hosted by a Viscount’s family in their lovely Estate on the outskirts of London. He approached me after I had finished dancing the waltz, I believe also intercepting my dancing partner to introduce himself and ask me for the next dance. He asked me for the next dances after that, for the rest of the evening, actually!”– Priscilla Kimbleton

Edmund is the son of a Baron Staunton, was formerly Priscilla’s fiance before it disasterously fell apart. Do not let his charming smile fool you, for beneath his pleasant nature lies a cruel and manipulative control freak. Regardless of the Verse or AU, somehow Edmund is always a cause for demise and strife in Priscilla’s life.
