  • A background legend was made in order to explain the sudden change in Edward Carnby in Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare from the first three games. It was said that this version of Carnby belonged to a lineage of Shadow Hunters who were born the 29th of February in every 40 years and raised as orphan children in St. George's Orphanage, all of them going by the name of Edward Carnby. The name is depicted as a literal anglicized form of "El War Qarn'bi", which means "the one who battles evil incarnate and hunts out the shadows". According to this legend, the original Edward Carnby was born in 1888 and went out of record after engaging several uncommon affairs in the years 1920 to 1939. The Edward Carnby in Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare was born in 1968.
  • For what all indicates, Carnby doesn't trust anyone but himself, revealing some similarities with Sherlock Holmes.

L'aspetto of this Edward resembles that of Jackie Estacado's in the comic, The Darkness, although it is more likely that the brown vest long is a tribute to the one worn dall'Edward Carnby in the original covers Alone in the dark 2 and 3 .

-The developers have said that they were inspired to Fox Mulder in the series X-Files and Hellboy (the revolver Carnby is a direct homage to the latter) to delineate this character.

-In game instructions booklet indicates that Edward was given to the orphanage of St. Andrew (like the original Edward Carnby), while in the Official Strategy Guide orphanage called St. George .
