- —Eric to Tyler.
Eric was a young mortal man who volunteered at a homeless shelter in San Francisco. He often walked the streets with pamphlets, trying to help homeless people find a bed and food for the night. One night, he met the the young firestarter Tyler Michaels, who ran away from foster care and was being chased by demons.
Eric convinced Tyler to come with him to the homeless shelter and provided him with a food and a room. Eric was later killed by the demonic Power Broker Arcon, who had come to find Tyler. Arcon used his power of Molecular Inhibition to turn Eric into ice and then shattered him into pieces.
