Eddie refuses to fly because of the death of his wife, which traumatized him deeply. He can appear like a grump, but is willing to spend a year with BoJack fixing his grandparents’ lake house out of just wanting to help.
Eddie is a dragonfly who BoJack meets when he returns to his mother's childhood summer cabin in Harper’s Landing, Michigan. BoJack tells Eddie to mind his own business when he offers to help fix the cabin.
Later BoJack agrees to let him help and Eddie helps BoJack restore the cabin and then at the end of episode BoJack destroys it again saying he wants to not cling to his past and claiming it was a big waste of time in the first place despite protests from Eddie not to.
There is a side story about his wife's death when she got stuck in the vent of an airplane due to him pressuring them to fly too high. Due to trauma, Eddie does not fly, despite having wings and the obvious ability to fly. The Eddie/BoJack plot is juxtaposed with BoJack's family history, particularly on Beatrice's side.
Eddie is a dragonfly with blue skin and blue wings. He wears a white baseball cap with a red label that says B&B Marina, a white turtleneck, a blue quilted jacket vest with two front lower pockets that has a tan lining around the zipper and collar and light blue jeans and sneakers. He has stubble on his chin and neck.
- He is the only one who stays at the summer housing year round.
- He is responsible for his wife's death, as she wanted to go back down to the ground, but he wanted to see how high they could go, causing a airplane engine to suck her in.
- The guilt from this incident is why he refuses to fly despite having the obvious ability to.
- Like BoJack, he can't stand the two girls at the Hardware Store, Tamera and Tamara due to be annoying and airheads.
