Advisor to the King

Edward Coulter was a politician and a close advisor to the king. He married Marisa Coulter, a beautiful and clever Scholar, sometime during his life. His wife committed adultery and was with child as a result. Upon the child's birth, she misled him to believe the baby had died, yet in actuality, her daughter was hidden away in one of her real father's cottages in Oxfordshire. When Edward finally discovered his wife's betrayal, he hunted down the child and came close to killing her. He was challenged by Lord Asriel, the child's real father.[1] Although he managed to get a shot with his gun, Asriel knocked it out of his hands and turned it back on him.[2]
