IIRC ed didnt design it. i liked them when it first came out way back whenever (when i was all goth and was like, COOL a guitar that looks like a violin! how goth!). i cant remember the guys name who made them to begin with. roman was just a seller then after a while i saw that he just started making them on his own. then after a while i found out ed was a big douche and quit caring. actually i think to begin with the guy was calling his custom shop or whatever pagan guitars then ed just took that name to call that model.
