Eddie Kaspbrak is one of the protagonists of IT.

Canon

Eddie is an integral part of the seven group of friends known as The Losers Club. He helps to fight Pennywise in both battles the friends have against it.

He, like the others, experienced bullying and torment from Henry Bowers and the Bowers Gang as both a child and adult. His most tumultuous relationship, though, was with that of his mother. Sonia Kaspbrak was a single mother after his father, Frank Kaspbrak departed. She is believed to have suffered from Munchausen Syndrome By Proxy, having convinced Eddie that he was ill and incapable of certain physical feats. Going even so far as to give him a fake aspirator for asthma which he did not have. Though he did get away from his mother, technically, when he grew up, he ended up marrying Myra Kaspbrak - a physically reminiscent, and similarly manipulative woman.

Fandom

Eddie's fan content prior to the release of the 2017 film was minimal. However, the fan content that had previously existed, or came to be early on after, usually gave a fairly balanced representation of Eddie. Fans took both the soft, and rougher edges of his characterization and melded them into one. As the fandom grew, Eddie's fanon self tended to curve softer, and then harsher again after the 2019 film's release. There is much discourse surrounding his characterization within the fandom, but most fans will agree that he is multi-faceted even if they prefer reading or writing Eddie in certain lights over others, be he angry and strong, or sweet and dependent.

Psychosomatic Issues & Mental Illness: Eddie's canon trauma and psychosomatic symptoms are semi-frequently mentioned in Fanfiction, however are not usually a key component.

(CW: Anxiety Disorder, Asthma) "Eddie Kaspbrak misses his boyfriend." Originally titled And the Livings Easy. This work explores Eddie's his persisting psychosomatic symptoms and related anxiety. It also features the trope Magical Healing Cock, as Richie replaces Eddie's 'inhaler' with his cock, through Cock Warming. When Richie leaves town, however, this leaves Eddie struggling again, so he is not actually 'healed.' (Reddie)
- what you managed to cram into just a 2k word fic is honestly amazing. Just all of the little details about how Eddie was coping with everything after the lies his mother told him, and just from the feeling of Richie managing to calm him down was touchingly sweet... - Redburn, Archived version

Eddie felt that familiar tightening sensation as his throat began to close up to a pinhole. Not this time, dammit. He thought suddenly. Not if my friends need me.
