Eddward Marion, better known as Edd or Double D, is one of the three main protagonist from the Ed, Edd n Eddy series.
The smartest kid in the neighborhood, and the brains of the Eds. Neat and morally upright to the point of annoyance, Edd (a.k.a. "Double D") is the oft-unheeded voice of reason in Eddy's schemes. Wears a beanie cap that he is never seen without (onscreen, at least).
In the AWA fics, Double D, known as Eddward Marion Vincent, is a student at the AWA Academy.
In the XP4 fics, Edd, known as Eddward Marion Smith, debuted in the XP4 Heroes Coalition - Neo-City Diaries.
Edd is a young man with black hair tied in a low ponytail and green eyes. His choice of clothing changes on occasion but he always kept on his black beanie hat.
Edd wears a white dress shirt with a black necktie, black trousers and brown leather shoes.
Edd is a rather scrupulous, but kind and good-intentioned youth. Docile, polite and disciplined, he willingly adheres to the laws and regulations of his community. With his love and desire for order, he occasionally undertakes the role of a peacemaker. He is incredibly gentle and accepting, albeit sometimes awkward and timid in his interactions, particularly with people of the opposite sex. Although considered an outcast, he is a generally well-respected, if not appreciated, member of his peer group, whom he gladly counsels and assists if need be. Even so, perfectionist Edd is something of a "goody-two-shoes," wishing to please and accommodate to the needs of others.
Despite being adored by many female admirers, he is shy towards the opposite gender unless you're really close to him.
Edd is a member of the Heroes Coalitions. He was once part of the New Age Avengers(now the Bullet Kingdom) and later became the Coalitions' Chief Operating Officer but later became an unofficial honorary member for his former team. He also attends the Vanguard Academy.

In Chapter 17, Edd, alongside Eddy Skipper McGee, Edwin Horace "Ed" Williams and Rolf Yrmi are seen sitting on a sidewalk of the cul-de-sac in Peach Creek when Marcus "The Kane" McGee greeted them. The five then began to argue about going to camp is good or bad when a bus arrived with a large hand grabbing all of them and pulling them inside. They then met Major Richard Stronghold where they learned a bit about the Training Camp. Later, they arrived the Training Camp and were in awe upon seeing the place. After meeting Penelope von Steiner and Yoshika Miyafuji at the lobby area, Yoshika began to show them around the Training Camp and even meeting Danny Fenton, Jake Long and Randy Cunningham at the training area. After the tour, they decided to call it the night and made their way to their designated rooms with Edd, Ed and Rolf sharing a room together.
In Chapter 19, Double D, alongside Marcus "The Kane" McGee, Eddy Skipper McGee, Edwin Horace "Ed" Williams and Rolf Yrmi, started their first day in training with the other trainees. During a training session with the Heavy at the training area, Double D tried to lift a heavy disk and accidentally tossed it backwards and hits Eddy on the head, knocking him out silly. During a training session with Major Richard Stronghold at a heavy traffic, Double D tried to evade on coming vehicles twice. During a training session with the Engineer, Eddy tried to peer on his notes which he quickly covers it, much to Eddy's dismay. Later that night and after a whole day of training, Double D took part of the little get-together at the training facility's cafeteria.
In Chapter 22, Edd, alongside Jake Long, Randy Cunningham, Tatsumi and Mine, are seen at the courtyard of the Training Camp when Esdeath appears before them. Edd, along with Jake and Randy, hid behind a tree when Esdeath and Mine had an argument.
Edd is known to be very intelligent. Exceptionally precocious, Edd is a promising young inventor with an interest in science. Although clever and perceptive, his foresights are often denied by an insidious Eddy. It is then that he displays his characteristic neuroticism and sarcasm, to the chagrin of his friends.
Edd is a Blessed with a Gift called Alchemy. This give him the ability to create different matters by rubbing his hands together and placing them on a certain object. He is also trained in master hand-to-hand combat and is able to diss out strong physical attacks.

"Floss Your Ed," "Once Upon an Ed," "See No Ed," "One Size Fits Ed," "Postcards from the Ed" and Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show.

- (to Minna) "No... my friends are more of a family to me than my parents."
- (to Minna) "And Miss Minna... what happened to your past... please... don't let it get in the way of the present. You're still young and you can still love someone... I know you don't want to feel the same pain again but what are you gonna do once your duties are done. You will need someone to be there for you for the rest of your life, so I believe you deserve another chance for love."
- (to Marcus) "Just make sure you do it right. Much like Eddy, your despicable at times too."
