Ronald Edwin Blackgaard, voiced by Earl Boen, first appeared in #203: “Double Trouble”. Due to his similarity to Regis, he was initially rejected by the townspeople, but, thanks to Whit's help, he became generally accepted by the town (although they don't patronize his Harlequin Theatre as often as he would like).

Edwin is an egotistical, condescending, spotlight-loving ham. However, he does this in such a lovable manner and has a generally good attitude that fans love. He can be serious at times, and occasionally (such as in #359: “The Merchant of Odyssey”) we get a glimpse of the good actor that lives somewhere deep inside of him. His conversation with Whit at the end of #203: “Double Trouble” also demonstrates that he is more than an overdramatic actor and can occasionally be down-to-earth. He is generally accompanied by his faithful servant Walter Shakespeare. Whit befriended him when he first came to Odyssey.


Edwin was trained as a Shakespearean actor and was apparently quite popular in roles before he moved to Odyssey. In Odyssey, he is torn between performing the Shakespearean plays he loves and performing the "crowd pleasers" that bring in enough money to keep his dinner theatre afloat financially. He had a couple of incidents with the parents of students whom he criticized.
