Eric is Shaun's roommate and close friend in the ARG MLAndersen0. He is a very crabby guy who seems to not trust Micheal at all. When Shaun is missing after he was attacked by Micheal in his sleep, He is very disbelieving of anything Micheal has to say, even threatening to call the police if Shaun didn't show up. Eric was attacked by Slender Man after Micheal led him down a alleyway and ran away as it showed up. He was gone for a few weeks, not answering any calls, or anyone at his door. When he was out of his shock, Eric came to Shaun's house, telling Micheal he was warned about talking to either Shaun or Micheal. When asked who warned him, he wouldn't answer. He is attacked more than any other character, more than likely due to the fact Micheal/Patrick think he shouldn't be involved with their situation.
Eric is the most doubtful of anything actually happening to Micheal, denying slenderman and Patrick's existance up until the point where he was beaten with the back of an axe until he complied to leave Micheal and Shaun alone.
He has not appeared in the series since Patrick told him to leave. Last known news of Eric was when Shaun said Eric had finally come out of the hospital.
