"Isaac, we're all gonna burn for what we did to you...."

Foster Edgars was a scientist stationed aboard Titan Station and one of the researchers working on EarthGov's Project Telomere.


Project Telomere[]

In the aftermath of the USG O'Bannon crew interrogations, Edgars was present with the Overseer during Isabel Cho's neutralization. Charged with the safekeeping of Nolan Stross, he was later informed of Isaac Clarke's hand in the destruction of Aegis VII[2] and encounter with Marker 3A. He was privy to the subsequent cover up of the USG Ishimura and Aegis VII incidents later blamed on Isabel Cho.

On Titan Station, Edgars oversaw the sessions of both Isaac and Stross during their implementation in Project Telomere's efforts to construct a Marker in the Government Sector. Edgars appeared to have a say in the frequency of Stross and Isaac's visits to the machine used to extract the data on the Markers from their brains and the memory suppressants used to keep both patients inert.[3]

Titan Station Outbreak[]

During the Necromorph outbreak, Edgars appeared to have lost his mind in the chaos that enveloped the Titan Memorial Medical Center and was encountered shortly after Isaac had escaped from the Psych Ward. Isaac found Edgars laughing, crying and occasionally muttering unintelligibly, all while carving what appeared to be tally marks into the glass window next to him with the scalpel he was holding, suggesting that he was counting the number of patients he had killed that in the patient recreation room below.

When Isaac approached Edgars in the hopes of getting help, Edgars moved at an alarming speed and put Isaac in a lock. He held a scalpel to his throat, muttering hysterically about Hans Tiedemann's order to exterminate the "key subjects" in the facility and asking him "What's one more? Will it matter?". Isaac tried to persuade Edgars not to kill him and to release him from the straightjacket so they could both get to safety. After a few moments, Edgars let him go and appeared to momentarily regain his sanity after noticing that Isaac's RIG was red. He pointed Isaac to a cabinet containing a flashlight and a medical pack. When Isaac turned to him after obtaining the items, Edgars told the engineer that they were all going to burn for what they had done to him. Without hesitation, Edgars slit his throat slowly with the scalpel with blood spewing everywhere. Shortly afterwards, Isaac found a group of corpses with their throats slit, seemingly the victims of Edgars' insanity.

During Gabe Weller's attempt to reach his wife Lexine in the Psych Ward, the security guard came across Edgars' body in the same place. Part of his abdomen was missing and his legs were stripped to the bone.



Dead Space 2 - Foster Edgars and Nolan Stross

Edgars was aggressive with the likes of his patients during their sessions. His tone when questioning them was dismissive and arrogant. During one session with Stross, Edgars assigned the former scientist to another session inside the Noonlight Diagnostics Machine in the face of Stross' protests when he failed to respond in a manner pleasing to Edgars. During a session with Isaac, he interrogated him about his experiences aboard the USG Ishimura and Dr. Nicole Brennan.[1]
