Eric was a construction worker of the DHARMA Initiative. He may have been killed along with other members of the DHARMA Initiative in the Purge, or he may have left the island sometime between 1977 and The Purge.
On the Island
Eric helping a new female recruit
A couple of days later, he was seen wearing an Orchid construction helmet, and interrupted the filming of the Arrow Orientation film to tell Dr. Chang about a problem at the construction site for the Orchid. He transported Dr. Chang in a DHARMA van to the still under construction Orchid greenhouse, then escorted Dr. Chang underground to a superior of his and returned to work.

Eric staring at Jack and Sayid
Before the 1977 Barracks battle, Eric was seen walking in front of Jack and Sayid, staring at them. It's possible that he survived the battle and escorted off the island prior to 1977 or he may have been killed in the Purge. ("The Incident, Part 1")
- This character is officially credited as anxious guy in the ABC Medianet press release.
- In "Namaste" and "The Incident, Part 1", Eric was only seen in the background, and possibly portrayed by an extra, but the face and hair style of the extra looks like Eric. According to IMDb, the extra was indeed Brad Berryhill, who was credited as Eric in "Because You Left".
