The 'hot-blooded' partner and traveling companion of The Hero. Based on off-hand comments by the hero, Erik is a womanizer who 'loves the attention', though Leanna specifically catches his eye when he arrives.
Erik came to the village while following the hero and was injured in defending Kain from a monster attack. Treatment of his injuries supposedly cost 2 Million Gold - which Kain thoughtlessly vows to pay.
Little does Kain know that Erik is actually fine and plots to steal Leanna away from him.
