Erik is a giant and ancient Gangrel of the 7th Generation who was imprisoned at Ardan's Chantry and was being prepared to be turned into a gargoyle. He is rescued by Christof's coterie just before the final stage of transformation. He joins the group as to repay this "life boon". Erik, like most Gangrel, is physically stronger than vampires of other clans and possesses the Disciplines of Protean and Animalism (shapeshifting into a wolf, drawing out and quelling the beast). Rather moody but absolutely honorable and reliable, he fought alongside Christof until he met his tragic destiny within the Haus de Hexe.
