Edric is described as having coal black hair, blue eyes and large ears, characteristic of House Florent.
He was conceived by Robert and Delena in the wedding bed of Robert's younger brother, Stannis Baratheon, who was marrying Delena's cousin, Selyse Florent. Robert acknowledged him as a result of these circumstances.
Edric was fostered at Storm's End by his other uncle, Renly Baratheon. Due to Renly being on the Small council, however, Edric was mostly raised by Ser Cortnay Penrose. Robert made a habit of visiting him a few times a year. It is unknown whether Edric has any contact with his mother.

A Clash of Kings Edit
After the death of Renly Baratheon, Stannis offers terms to the defenders of Storm's End that they will be allowed to go free if they surrender Edric to him. Cortnay Penrose refuses the deal however, through fear of what Stannis would do with Edric. When he falls to his derath, however, Edric is surrendered over to Stannis, who ships him to Dragonstone with Melisandre.
A Storm of Swords Edit
Edric spends time at Dragonstone playing with Stannis' daughter, Princess Shireen Baratheon, and her fool, Patchface. Maester Pylos leecehes him when he comes down with a chilol. Edric stays loyal to the Faith of the Seven and does not convert to following R'hllor.
Melisandre pressures Stannis to burn Edric, as she believes that his king's blood will awaken dragons of stone that will aid him. Ser Davos Seaworth pressures Stannis to do the opposite and spare him. Edric's blood is leeched and is used in a ritual to curse three rival kings, Joffrey, Robb Stark and Balon Greyjoy. The three kings all subsequently perish.
Concerned that Stannis is preparing to burn Edric, Ser Davos, aided by Maester Pylos and some loyal members of the king's men, ship him out to the Free Cities aboard the Mad Prendos. Edric desires to say goodbye to Stannis and Shireen, but Davos insists that there is no time to do so. Andrew Estermont is appointed as Edric's guardian and protector, and is joined by Ser Gerald Gower, Omer Blackberry, Ser Triston of Tally Hill, and Lewys the Fishwife.
