(Spirits of Vengeance I#2 (fb) - BTS) - A demon posing as a human, Eduardo managed Eduardo's Rare and Collectible Books, a used book store frequented by Daimon Hellstrom. Years after Hellstrom first visited Eduardo's, Hellstrom phoned Eduardo and asked for a very particular old tome. Happy to help a regular client, Eduardo pulled the book and had it ready when Hellstrom and his allies Johnny Blaze and the vampire hunter Blade arrived. Before Hellstrom arrived, Eduardo was tasked by Razan the Night Jackal to capture Johnny Blaze and recover a piece of enchanted silver in Blaze's possession by the following night.
(Spirits of Vengeance I#2) - Unaware of Eduardo's
mission, Hellstrom soon arrived and expressed appreciation for Eduardo
having the book ready and Eduardo explained that he was happy to help
such a long time client. When Hellstrom asked what he owed Eduardo,
Eduardo commented that it was on the house. Curious, Hellstrom asked
why there was no charge and a nervous Eduardo muttered that he could be
compensated by having Johnny Blaze remain behind, further remarking
that it was nothing personal and that Hellstrom and Blade could go
free. Hellstrom calmly asked why Blaze had to stay and an even more
nervous Eduardo commented that Hellstrom knew why. Hellstrom
nonetheless said Blaze was with him and Eduardo sighed, transformed
into his demonic form, and attacked Hellstrom while his "customers"
similarly transformed into demonic forms and attacked Hellstrom's
allies. Hellstrom's allies made quick work of the demons posing as
Eduardo's customers but Eduardo managed to get the drop on Hellstrom
himself. Hellstrom calmly expressed disappointment in Eduardo after
giving him so much business over the years and Ghost Rider subsequently
wrapped his chains around Eduardo's neck, ready to destroy the demon.
Hellstrom halted Ghost Rider's attack, however, and suggested they
instead have a friendly chat with Eduardo.
Taking Eduardo back to his headquarters, Daimon
Hellstrom interrogated him, demanding to know what was going on.
Eduardo responded by repeatedly apologizing and expressing hope that
the attack would not damage their long term relationship but Hellstrom
ordered Eduardo to stop stalling. Eventually exclaiming that there was
a bounty on Johnny Blaze, Eduardo was asked why and he admitted he
didn't know, only that he had been tasked by Razan the Night Jackal to
capture Blaze and recover a piece of silver in Blaze's possession. He
also exclaimed that he had clearly told to accomplish his mission by
the following night before swearing that was all he knew.
