Edward Tattsyrup is the proprietors of Royston Vasey's local shop along with Tubbs Tattsyrup (which they inherited from their mother and has apparently been in the Tattsyrup family for generations), located on the top of a hill some distance away from the town. Both have distinctly pig noses (in live shows, the actors simply hold their noses up with tape). Despite being complete outsiders to most of the other action in the show, they have become, arguably, the most popular and identifiable characters.

He is afraid of outsiders and is a serial killer. Most of them are done due to Tubbs giving away the killings to outsiders, shouting "we didn't burn him".
