Eddie was giving Lafayette Reynolds blood in exchange for sex. He was unable to glamour people as he was a relatively "new" vampire and had not mastered the skill. Because of this, it is likely he did not have a relationship with his maker who would have taught him how to use his powers. His reason for becoming a vampire was to attract men. After becoming a vampire, he continued to live his life as he had before, spending a lot of time watching TV. He also believed that Lafayette cared for him even though the cook was using him for his blood. ("The Fourth Man in the Fire")
He was later kidnapped by Amy and Jason using a silver hood over his head and Amy's silver jewelry chains as arm & leg restraints. They tied him to a lounge chair in Jason's basement. After a few days of taking his blood and talking to Eddie, Jason began to feel bad about what he and Amy had done, so Jason decided to free him. Witnessing this, Amy staked Eddie before he could be freed, stating that he would have killed them if he had gotten away. Eddie's death had a deep effect on Jason and confused him as to whether vampires were good or bad. ("Plaisir D'Amour")("I Don't Wanna Know")
Eddie possessed the common powers and weaknesses of a Vampire. Due to his young age, sunlight would slowly kill him. Although he never exhibit any supernatural ability, he was known to be unable to glamour.
Eddie has only been seen a couple times since his death. Once when Jason faked staking Sarah Newlin, he had a flashback about Amy staking Eddie; in the episode "Scratches", he dreamed Eddie was in his bed.
