Eden Rising
"It’s time to begin the next phase of Eden. A phase without lies, without backstabbing. It’s time for me to step up, and be the true leader this place needs. And to do that, I need to cut the loose ends."
MacPherson, to Gareth[src]

Ed MacPherson was a recurring antagonist in Eden Rising.



He was introduced as a U.N. representative who gives Manila a mission as a reporter to document the events that are going on in the United States.

Season 2Edit

He later turned up when Manila and her fellow survivors were brought to Eden, surprised to see she is still alive. He participated in the interviewing process of the new recruits.

Season 3Edit

It was revealed that he has created his own private security firm in the years that passed, called Touch Star Security Corporation. MacPherson makes a fortune supplying security forces, and training residents, to Eden and acting as their form of protection. Gareth worked as his right-hand man once he arrived in Eden and joined Touch Star, however, recently trust has been a hard thing to find between these two due to all of the lies and backstabbing.
