Worst Ed is a villain and the Captain of a spaceship full of pirates known as the Nitty-Gritty. Ed has a twin brother also named Ed, and their parents decided to raise them as one complete being. One night, their father came to their bedroom and whispered in the other Ed’s ear : “I always thought you were the best Ed”. Overhearing this, Ed decided to become the Worst Ed. At ten years old, they emancipated themselves and went their own separate ways. Worst Ed would become the Captain of the Nitty-Gritty, the two Eds becoming rival space captains, always out to try to steal the best pearls.
