A disgraced and former member of the Navy turned docker, Eddie was recruited in September 1940 by the US operations to infiltrate the Atomic program of Nazi Germany. Reluctant to help the Americans at first, Eddie accepted after his widowed sister-in-law and her two children died during a German bombardment of London.
Two years later, and now a trusted defector and officer in the SS, the "Untersturmfurher" Gorm discovered that the atomic program of the Germans was in fact a front for the development of a Templar device, Die Glocke. However, Eddie blew his cover in the process and had to flee. He joined a group of Americans, who revealed themselves to be Assassins. Through them Eddie discovered he descended from a long line of Assassins himself, and decided to join the Brotherhood.
However, Eddie was captured and put into a very early prototype of the Animus, powered by an Apple of Eden. Because his grandson Maxime Gorm was reliving his memories through the Animus at the same time, there was a defect in synchronization and Eddie's consciousness was switched with Maxime's and he woke up in the 21th century.
