Eddy is a character created by Tucker. He appeared in the episode "The Tale of the Manaha".


Eddy is a camper from camp Towaki. He along with four other boys, Alex, Steve, Carl and Jonah got permission from camp director Mr. Ostrowski to go on an overnight camping trip deep in the woods. He seems to be a fairly good camper. Despite the fact that is overweight and enjoy frequently snacking.

Camp counsellor Lonnie, was going to be leading them on their hiking trip. Lonnie was either a trained army drill sergeant or a camp counsellor taking the job too seriously. One by one, Lonnie reprimanded and yelled at the others. He had brought with him a screw-top jar. It contained spaghetti in a light tomato garlic sauce. Which he intended to heat up and eat for dinner. It is unknown where he got it from. But Lonnie was not impressed. In fact Lonnie spilled it all over the ground. Then some spattered onto his shirt. Lonnie was turned off by his size and rudely told him to lose weight.

During the beginning of the hike, he and the others listened to Lonnie got really mad ticked off for Jonah constantly correcting and contradicting him. Then when setting up camp, he got hungry again. So he started eating a footlong sandwich. Then Lonnie got fed up with Jonah and pushed him. Jonah ended up knocking Lonnie's knapsack down a small hill.

When Lonnie realized that Jonah was taking a long time retrieving it, Lonnie and Alex went down to check on him. Then they found out that Jonah discovered a small aboriginal burial tomb. Jonah told them before they showed up that he lifted a statue off of a plinth. Then Jonah mistakenly released an evil Shaman. The Shaman warned Jonah that now he was free. Also that the Shaman would have flesh eating monsters roam around the forest. So the Shaman warned them to leave the woods as soon as possible.

He and the others didn't believe Jonah. They all just thought that since Jonah was younger, he was just seeing things and was spooked by the woods and being away from civilization. When his division went over to the ranger station to check in with the Forest Ranger. At first the place seemed deserted. He was intrigued over all of the tasty looking food the ranger left behind. But Jonah got really tense and anxious worrying that the Manaha captured the Forest Ranger. Then Jonah backed into someone thinking it was a Manaha and screamed. It turned out it was just the Forest Ranger. He stepped away for a few minutes. So he and the others all laughed at Jonah.

That evening, Jonah was scared about going into the woods to get firewood. So he teased him. He told him that the boogieman wouldn't eat him. Since he was too small. Then he and the other boys all laughed. All except Lonnie who went to get a bigger pile of firewood. Then when he and the others all heard Lonnie scream in the woods, they went over to check on him. Then he and the others all saw huge footprints. He and the others now realized that Jonah really was telling the truth. When heading over to the Ranger station, he and the others found the place all messed up and trashed. So now they realized the Manaha had captured the ranger as well.

Against Jonah's advice, he and the others all tried heading back to camp for help in separate directions. Then he got lost. So he panicked he started calling out for the others. But they couldn't hear him. Then a Manaha jumped down from above and captured him. Then when he screamed, the others realized that he had gotten captured too.

He, Lonnie and the Forest Ranger were taken back to a place where the Shaman had set up camp. He and the other two were bound and gagged in a bark like material then suspended in the air. Soon Jonah. Alex, Steve and Carl Finally found them. It seemed that the Shaman was preparing to light bonfires beneath them. Then offer them in a sacrificial ritual.

Jonah now finally realized that Manaha were linked to beliefs. So they were only visible to those who believed in them. So Jonah faced the Shaman and denied that the Manaha were real. So they disappeared. Then Jonah tricked the Shaman into believing the Manaha had turned against him. It was done by having, Alex, Steve and Carl dressed like Manaha in dark ponchos. Then they made similar sounds with sticks while rustling the trees and bushes. The Shaman fell for it and was fearfully lead back into the burial cave. Where Jonah returned the statue back to the plinth. This once again sealed the Shaman away.

Afterwards, Jonah finally earned he and all of the others respect. So Jonah lead he and the others all on a five mile hike back to camp. While Lonnie would be at the end carrying all of the bags.
