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.
