Character History
 As Leader of the Calderon Protectorate
After seeing the devastation caused by the Taurian Concordat on a Federated Suns planet, he pulled Protectorate support and began taking his post more seriously. He underwent battle armor training, making use of a smuggled Asterion suit. Erik became the Protector of the Calderon Protectorate on the 25th of June 3080 after Baron Cham Kithrong stepped down from the post of Regent-Protector.
The decision made by Baron Kithrong to stand down was unexpected, to say the least; critics of Kithrong's announcement and the transfer of power to Erik argued that it was a symbolic gesture, and that Kithrong would remain the power behind the throne. In contrast to the opinion voiced by the critics, insiders who knew Kithrong or Erik took a different position, arguing that Kithrong had been impressed by Erik's drive and determination to become a worthy leader for the Protectorate, as well as his ability. One of Erik's early decisions was propose that the Protectorate act as arbitrators in the war between the Taurian Concordat and the Federated Suns, and that while the armistice was fostered by Kithrong, it was Erik who chose the various emissaries and dispatched them to Taurus and New Avalon.
