Once, Eden was a beautiful suburb of Paragon City called Woodvale. It was the prime location for families to set up residence. There were many parks and it had easy paths for drives into the country. This proved to be its undoing.
Offended by the encroaching urban sprawl, the Devouring Earth launched a massive assault on Woodvale. The creatures destroyed many of the buildings and other man-made objects. The rest they buried or left in ruin, driving all the previous inhabitants into the city proper.
Now, Eden is a sprawling wilderness, with nature slowly taking over completely. If the spread of the forces of the Devouring Earth is not stopped, it could soon begin to swallow other parts of the city. Currently Eden has been isolated and Contained by the work of many heroes, some of which paid the ultimate price.
