Edgar "E" Gore is a major antagonist in Frankenweenie.
Edgar wears a stripped shirt, has an unusual big back,which looks like he could be hunchbacked and he is always seen smiling. Even in serious situations. Edgar only has three teeth's.
Edgar is a needy misfit who doesn’t have friends but is desperate to be Victor’s partner for the science fair. He is 10-years-old. In his attempts to be accepted ‘E’ tends to mess things up and often fails to think before he speaks. Even though ‘E’ promises not to tell Victor’s secret, he accidentally spills the beans. This is when everybody becomes interested and Edgar potentially power trips on the knowledge that he has harboured and desirable information for once.
<In the movie Edgar wants Victor's help, and tricks him into helping him.
