Edward "Eddie" Thomas is Raven and Chelsea's other best friend who is a skilled rapper and whose parents are divorced, the latter statement being mentioned several times throughout the series. He is Raven's male best friend and a guard on the school basketball team. He is like a "big brother" to Cory Baxter. Occasionally, he says "Told ya! Told ya twice!" after he tells Raven not to do something that they both knew she would do. Another common catchphrase of his is "Holla!" after he finishes talking to his friends or girls that he likes. It is also said that he has a little brother.


Eddie has natural black hair which he alternates wearing it in an afro, short cut, cornrows, or twists for the most part.


Raven and Eddie are best friends until they noticed each other at a school dance. When they were dancing they kiss each other and kept staring at each other.

Chelsea and Eddie are Raven Baxter's best friends until Chelsea and Eddie were dancing and Raven got worried that Chelsea and Eddie were going to "show their moves" on stage.
