With Elana Gogen he has two children in the form of Edmund Blackwood II, and Mylessa Blackwood II. of which his son Edmund is his right hand man and is working alongside his father in all of his exploits, while his daughter Mylessa was named after his mother and in this way has become very close to Mylessa Blackwood while still remaining ultimately loyal to her father.

Edmund Blackwood was born the third child of his father Tytos Blackwood, and from this position he came to be very close to his brother Lucas who was during this time the heir apparent for House Blackwood. When he was fifteen he would travel alongside his brother to Pontus where he and his brother were going to aquire a special sword for their father. During this trip he grew even closer to his brother, who while being a headstrong young man was also a very kind person on top of that. When they had aquired the sword, and were preparing to leave the crater of Pontus it would be an arrogant joke towards their sister  Alyn that would cause Lucas to lash out at the man making the joke without thought of who the man was. Without a second thought the man would duel Lucas and after only a minute he ha decapitated Lucas and when this happened as Alyn cried and Edmund stood stunned at the happening the man would pick up the head of his brother and cut off his ear before throwing the now defaced head at his feet and walking away to the cheers of the crowd. Picking up their brother they returned to Raventree where their father was horrified that this had happened. Despite attempts to make the man pay for what had happened they discovered the man was a rich mercenary living in Pontus under the protection of one of their more rich merchents. Following the death of his brother Edmund was blamed heavily for his brother being killed, and because of this he was passed over for the Lordship of Raventree in favor of his less capable older brother Bryndan Blackwood, and instead was given Lordship over Castle Blackwood or "The Block". In the Black he would be married to Elana Gogen of House Gogen a lower level household, and even though he would become happy with her he felt this was yet another slight on him for something he had never done wrong. As he was being passed over for what had been his birth right and forced to hide away at Castle Blackwood his brother Byndan was being given the best of everything, and this only led to more and more resenment inside the heart of Edmund Blackwood. Following the capture of the Riverlands by the Kingdom Of Lucerne Edmund would begin to plot the downfall of his brother Bryndan which he believed he could accomplish by making him appear to be a rebel against the power of the Lucernians. Edmund would spend nearly two years planting evidence against his brother so that when the time came that the Lucernians looked into him, they would find that he was heavily invested into a rebellious group actually created by Edmund Blackwood. With his plan in place Edmund would travel to Lucerne where he would meet with members of the Order of the Green Dragon and he would place doubt into their mind about how effective the passover would be to Bryndan Blackwood. At the end of the Rise of Lucerne he meets with a representative of the Order of the Green Dragon's internal Libelle devision, of whom is in the Block to begin his investigation of Bryndan Blackwood.

Death of Lucas Blackwood

The Death of Lucas Blackwood
You are born into a sort of arrogance being a member of a noble family. You believe there is danger in the world, but somehow you feel like there isn't a way that it could ever damage you. The death of my brother changed that pretty dramatically.

Alyn Blackwood

When Edmund Blackwood was fifteen he would travel alongside his brother Lucas Blackwood to Pontus where he and his brother were going to acquire a special sword for their father for his birthday. Joined as they were leaving by their sister Alyn Blackwood, and Alyn's lady in waiting Lyndia Greenfield the three would take a half dozen men with them, and made the boat trip to Pontus. During this trip he grew even closer to his brother, who while being a headstrong young man was also a very kind person on top of that. The two brothers were not the only ones that grew closer as Alyn Blackwood showed herself to be someone more intelligent then the brothers had thought she was capable of being, and because of that the three had a great time travelling to Pontus. Arriving in Pontus they were amazed at the splendor of the city of Pentos, and bathed in the riches of the markets and the immense goods available to them in the city. They would easily find the merchant that had the sword, and would be given a fair price for the sword of which they purchased. Once they had acquired the sword, and were preparing to leave the crater of Pontus it would be an arrogant joke towards their sister Alyn by Harlello Ostoran a member of The Crimson Contract that would cause Lucas to lash out at the man making the joke without thought of who the man was. Without a second thought Harlello Ostoran would duel Lucas and with Harlello a veteran of a hundred duels he would toy with Lucas of whom quickly realized he was going to lose and despite attempts by his siblings to end the fight he was unwilling and after only a minute Harlello had decapitated Lucas and when this happened as Alyn cried and Edmund stood stunned at the shocking death of Lucas Blackwood. Without any movement from Edmund Blackwood, he and Alyn would be horrified when the man would pick up the head of his brother and cut off his ear before throwing the now defaced head at his feet and walking away to the cheers of the crowd. Picking up their brother they were immediately taken from the city by Franzal Thorup the guard captain of their bodyguard troop but also a close friend of young Bryndan Blackwood of whom he had bonded with over their mutual desire for violence, and sexual depravity. returned to Raventree where their father was horrified that this had happened. Despite attempts to make the man pay for what had happened they discovered the man was a rich mercenary living in Pontus under the protection of one of their more rich merchents, and thus their revenge was not going to be able to be had.
