Brief Character History1984
Eden Capwell was the oldest daughter of wealthy C.C. Capwell. Although her existence was mentioned as early as the first episiode, she didn't appear onscreen until two months later. When Eden first appeared, she returned to Santa Barbara after a stint in Europe in order to celebrate her dad's birthday. Her first scenes saw Eden rolling in the hey with her pilot and accidentally parachuting onto the Lockridge estate instead of her family's front lawn. Unbeknownst to everyone, Eden knew secret spy Cruz Castillo through a love affair in Europe. Volatile spraks flew between them. Meanwhile, Eden was briefly attracted to Lionel Lockridge, her mother's former lover.
Although Cruz and Eden remained estranged for months, C.C. was able to get them back together again. Later, C.C. told Eden that he had an aneurysm and made her promise that if it came down to it, she would allow him to die instead of be put on life support equipment. Soon after, C.C. went into a coma. Devastated, Eden took temporary control of Capwell Enterprises and found herself working with Kirk Cranston. At the same time, she was torn about fulfilling her father's dying wish to not be on life support. C.C.'s conniving wife Gina used this information and made it seem as though Eden pulled the plug on C.C.'s life support system in an attempt to put him out of his misery. She even made Eden believe she was guilty. Although C.C. didn't die, Eden was unable to face Cruz anymore. Kirk covered for a grateful Eden, and they married.
Eventually, Eden recovered the use of her legs. She escaped Cain's hold and returned to Santa Barbara to relieve her loved ones from mourning her death. Everyone was stunned that Eden was alive. Unfortunately, she lost the use of her legs again. Wanting to spare Cruz the life he would lead taking care of a cripple, Eden turned away from him. She convinced herself that Cain was the only one who could help her to walk again, and moved him into the Capwell mansion. In time, Cruz was able to convince Eden that he loved her no matter what and they reunited. Later, Eden was able to walk again. Cruz and Eden were reluctantly separated when he was accused of Elena's murder, but his innocence was soon proven.1988
Cruz and Eden finally got married. A highlight of their honeymoon was a brief journey back in time to the year 1962, where they met Eden's parents. After causing a rift between the two, Cruz and Eden had to get C.C. and Sophia back together to ensure that Eden would be born. Weeks later, Cruz disappeared and ended up a prisoner on an island owned by Dr. Willoughby, a mad man who liked hunting people as if they were animals. Eden soon arrived on the island to save her husband. Back in Santa Barbara, it was revealed that Cruz was the father of Chip, Tori's son. An insecure Eden was shattered that she didn't produce Cruz's first-born son. When her attempts to get pregnant failed, Eden flew to Paris and underwent an operation that would enable her to bear children again. Eventually, Tori gave Cruz and Eden custody of Chip.
Later, Eden became a journalist at the local TV station and did a story about gang problems. Soon after, Eden was brutally raped. Critter, a gang member, was thought to be the attacker, but he wasn't. Eden continued to be harassed by the rapist via phone calls. She also discovered she was pregnant, but it was unsure who the father was.
Robert Barr came to Santa Barbara to take over Capwell Enterprises and to reclaim his one true love, Eden. It seemed that they'd been in love as teenagers. However, amnesia inhibited Eden from remembering Robert, their summer on the island of Las Sirenas and the murder of Raoul Mondragon. Robert had served time in prison for this murder, believing he was taking the rap for Eden. In time, Eden remembered it all, including her surpressed passion and love she and Robert once shared. Raoul's real murderer turned out to be mayoral candidate Jerry Calhoun. Eden's conviction to her marriage faltered for a while because of Robert. Cruz was hurt and walked out on Eden.
Back home, Eden found herself confronted again with Robert Barr, only this time as her sister Kelly's fiance. Suspicious of Robert, Eden allied herself with Craig Hunt to find out what Robert was up to. It was later revealed that Robert's evil twin brother, Quinn, had changed places with Barr. Eden killed Quinn in self-defense. When Kelly was arrested for the murder, Eden rushed to confess, but a car accident left her in a coma. In an out-of-body experience, Eden returned to to crime scene and realized that someone else shot and killed Quinn.
