A former member of the British Armed Forces, Edwin Jarvis served under a general as an aide and met Anna, a Hungarian Jew. After WWII broke out, Jarvis tried to set up transit to evacuate Anna, but the general refused to sign the letters, prompting Jarvis to forge the general's signature. He was dishonorably discharged, but spared from the noose due to the intervention of Howard Stark. Jarvis and Anna went on to marry, and the former was hired by Howard Stark as a butler.

Jarvis is a loyal, honorable soul, more than willing to put his welfare in jeopardy to assist his friends. Even though he was a military man, he deplores violence, though he will forgo this to help his friends if he must. He is able to help Stark care for his massive car collection, as well as being well-versed in first-aid and piloting, presumably due to his training in the war. When Howard was framed as a traitor, he worked alongside Agent Carter to prove Stark's innocence.

Jarvis was involved with the Stark family for decades, becoming particularly close to Tony, Howard's son. After Howard's death, Jarvis continued to raise Tony, becoming such a father figure that after his death, Tony named his A.I. system in honor of his former butler (Just A Rather Very Intelligent System).
