Ted was born in the Village of the Hidden Rune and was the sole survivor of an attack on the village by Windy, Neclord and Yuber. Since then, he has wandered the world as the bearer of the Rune of Life and Death--Souleater. His rune was stolen at one time, but he found it once again after a few years, which made him age a few years during his 300 years of wandering.

Very little of what happened is known but Ted spent some time on the Fog Ship. This ships last voyage was trying to convince Lazlo to give his True Rune to the Ship's Captain and to stay there for enternity. Ted questioned him about his rune and eventually decided to leave as well. The guide refused to let them leave and attacked. He was defeated and Ted's rune was restored. He helped Lazlo throughout the rest of the war and vanished once it had ended. He was followed by Aldo who died from a mytsterious incident.

During these years he was involved in many other fights as well, which made him skilled in the use of many different weapons. His expertise of bo sticks suprised McDohl when he sparred with him, to which Ted replied, "I never used this weapon before, but I had to defend myself often in the past..." During the Scarlet Moon Empire's war with Jowston, Teo McDohl found Ted in the battlefield. Thinking that Ted was an orphan of war, Teo invited him to his household. Ted gladly joined Teo McDohl, but instead of living in the McDohl household, he borrowed a small house nearby.

It didn't take much time for Ted to become friends with Tir. The two got along as if they had known each other all along. Ted even accompanied Tir in his earliest quests when he joined the Scarlet Moon Empire Army's Royal Guards under Kraze.

However, his Souleater was discovered by the Court Magician Windy and Ted suffered a heavy wound when he escaped from Windy's clutches. After arriving at the McDohl household, he passed the Souleater onto Tir while he himself stayed behind as a decoy. This in the end forced Tir to fight against the Scarlet Moon Empire. Despite this, Ted was kept alive by Windy, slowly losing control over himself through Windy's Conquerer Rune. Windy summoned Ted at Seek Valley and forced him to ask Tir to surrender his rune. However, due to the fact that the Souleater still considered Ted to be its owner, Ted was able to communicate to Tir through the rune. Then, Ted commanded the Souleater to take his own soul and it is believed that Ted ended his life at that moment. - Blue Moon
