"Ed (Edward Wong Hau Pepelu Tivruski IV)” was a boy at the planning stage. I got a request to draw the characters sitting on a chair with each of their personalities shown for the planning document. I was told Ed’s character was still pending and that she was a boy at first. (laughs) I’ve  also drawn a number of illustrations with backgrounds to show the setting. It seems like another character is in place of Ed here.” - Toshihiro Kawamoto, Character Designer, Animation director of Cowboy Bebop


That one time when Ed was actually a young, black hacker kid w/ dreads as part of the Bebop crew, until final decisions/direction designed turned him into a girl. :-)
