Eddy was born in one of the most wealthey families in Brazil. As a 
successor of his father's enterprise, Eddy was an excellent student in 
the study of monarchism; he was famous for his diligentness and the 
gentle characteristic in town. At the age of 19, one day after school, 
Eddy found his father dying in blood. His father told him that a 
syndicate had attempted to kill him. He had planned to eliminate drug 
syndicates which spoil the country. Getting information enough to 
procecute the syndicate and being about to to execute, he was attacked 
by them. His last word was "it's not the right time to fight now. Take 
the guilt of homicide and hide yourself in the prison." 

Fallen from an excellent student, he was imprisoned as a criminal. The 
life in the prison was practically a living hell. He cried every day at 
his powerlessness which eventually turned into a grudge against the 
syndicate which killed his father. One day a riot arose in the prison, 
and Eddy saw an extraordinary incident. Fascinated by the power of an 
old man, Eddy went to the old man and asked what was the art he used. It 
was Capoeiristas. Obtaining power was his first priority, he thought. 
Then he was trained by the old man. 8 years had passed since his 
inprisonment. 

At the age of 27, Eddy's Capoeiristas had turned into the lethal weapon 
driven by his pledge to revenge on the syndicate. Released from the 
prison, he heard a rumor about "the King of Iron Fist Tournament" and 
noticed the existance of the Mishima Empire. Having an idea to use the 
great power of Mishima group and take revenge on the syndicate, Eddy 
decided to attend the tournament.

*Strategy*

-GENERAL-

 Some of Eddy's best combos can be started with the Arching Crescent (b+rk).
Link it to the Flapjack Kick for some good damage, or the Chain Kick to 
Roll Kick Combo for unpredictability. Other great combo starters include
the Vault Sweep (lk~rk) and Handstand Position Starter (df+lk). Use these 
combo starters and switch between high and low attacks to confuse your
opponent.

 The Handstand and Grounded Positions are key! Don't forget them, and mix
everything up! The Handstand Position can go into various moves and chains,
and the Grounded Position can be used to spring up into the Handstand
Position via sweeps. 

-VS HUMAN-

 Yeesh. Most people dislike fighting against Eddy because of the fact that 
he can be EXTREMELY CHEAP in most cases. Mix your attacks up a bit... this 
not only makes Eddy more difficult to block, but gives you an actual sense 
of... well... accomplishment. Try to refrain from using the infinite 
Barbed Wire kicks (db+rk,db+rk,db+rk,db+rk...), and make sure that you don't
use infinite looping combos... these usually leave you vulnerable to a skilled 
human opponent. Don't forget the sidestep... it's an important tool. Use 
it to initiate combos. 

   Example - ss,b+rk,lk,rk,rk - Sidestep -> Arching Crescent -> Chain Kick ->
                                Roll Kick Combo

-VS EDDY-

 The key here is in the countering. Mirror your opponent as best as you can;
if he Vault Sweeps you, block and Vault Sweep back. Use of loop combos will
help here, but don't overdo it.

-VS HWOARANG-

 From what I've seen, Eddy's worst nightmare is Hwoarang. You will be easily
caught and kicked out of the Handstand Position. The best bet here is to
keep your distance, and counter his attacks with combos beggining with the
Arching Crescent.

 -VS NINA-

 Nina, to say it plainly, is a BITCH. Your best bet is to go low, and stay
out of her range. Slow high kicks are Nina's pitfall... take the opportunity
and sweep.
