|Parents||William Davion (father)|

Edward was serving as a young officer in a BattleMech unit on the planet of Royalston in the Capellan March in 2508 when the planet was hit by raiders from the Capellan Confederation. A regiment commanded by David Varnay should have been able to support Edward's unit, but failed to reach the proper coordinates in time, and as a result Edward and his comrades were killed; while the commander of the Varnay unit was exonerated from blame by subsequent investigations, accusations of treachery on the part of the Varnays was rife at the time.
