Personality & Appearance

Edu is the very definition of a psychopath, he is cold, manipulative and most important a very sadistic criminal, taking pride in torturing and murdering innocent and defenseless people. He is also a very smart individual as he was able to become the right hand man of a corrupt politician in just minutes.

Edu's appearance is definately what made him the profilic serial killer that he is today. Due to his handsome appearance, he is able to convince any women to let him enter their houses or to convince his victims to go inside his car etc...

Modus Operandi

Edu's M.O. seems to randomly change during the course of the series, a possible explanation for this is to not be identified by authorities. During his first known murders, he partially copied the M.O. of famous serial killers, such as Ted Bundy, he would also copy others modi operandi in later murders. He was not a very organized criminal, as he often left major evidence behind. Despite having multiple modi operandi, most of his murders had something in common, he would always gain his victim's trust with his charm, only then to (most of the times) torture and eventually kill them, something which could link the murders. His victimology also did not helped him, as most of his victims were young women, which again could easily link the murders together. In one occasion, he realised that he was going to get caught soon, so in one single night he managed to kill three women, all killed with three different modi operandi, something which he had never done before. Overall, Edu could be classified as a Mixed-to-Organized Hedonistic serial killer.

  • Edu is based on real life serial killer, Ted Bundy.
    • Ironically, Edu once said to be Bundy's admirer and fan.
  • Edu's theme song is One Fatal Secret by Sepultura.
