 The Story

 Edison is an electrician named for Thomas A. Edison. On the base is a coin commemorating the invention of the lightbulb in 1879. This Woodspirit has a light in his hat, so he must be bright! Judging by his belt, he's also a live wire. Edison knows how to pull your chain to light up your life. He had a nutty idea—he made flashlights out of acorns and wire connectors for the other Woodspirits, so they'd never be left in the dark. He also has a plug to give to his friend Franklin, whose namesake Ben Franklin is the father of electricity. Edison is in the same trade union as Locke and Noah. Edison thought this would be an easy way to make a living— he had to have a screw loose to think that.
