Eric Northman (born c. 900, died c. 930) is the vampire sheriff of Area 5 in Louisiana which encompasses Bon Temps. He is over 1,000 years old as he was born somewhere in Scandinavia during the Viking age. As a child he played by the North Sea, which would mean that he grew up in Denmark or Norway, the two Scandinavian countries which border the North Sea. According to Pam he has a farm in Öland (Sweden). Eric speaks Swedish and refers to old Swedish music. He owns the vampire bar Fangtasia in Shreveport, Louisiana. Eric is 6'4" tall and has blond hair, blue eyes.

Eric is shown to be calculating yet loyal and generally willing to absolve humans that aggravate him-unless they have grievously crossed him.
His loyalty as Progeny to his Maker Godric was so strong, that he fell to his knees in tears when Godric decided to ultimately end his life by meeting the sun. Eric offered to burn beside him, since he claimed that he could not live without Godric.
He has a great capacity not only for loyalty, but affection, considering vampire nature. Eric demonstrated this with his progeny Pam and his growing love and affection for Sookie Stackhouse.

He has a deep attraction to Sookie and is willing to take her away from Bill at the first opportunity. A very calm, methodical individual, Eric is more in control of his emotions than Bill, and rarely loses his temper. When pushed, however, he has shown a great capacity for violence. Eric is unconcerned about being viewed as "the bad guy" merely seeing his actions as a means to an end. He is often secretive and can be somewhat of a trickster, but is honest and direct.

Eric is confident enough that he doesn't think he needs to prove himself. He has a joy of living and a sense of humor uncommon for vampires.
After Eric had his memory erased by Marnie he is completely different. He is gentle and sweet towards Sookie and is even disturbed by the horrible things he has done which he finds out in. Losing his memory shows the Eric behind the mask. But upon gaining his memory back he claims he isn't just the old or new Eric, he is both.

Human life

Eric was a Viking, and used to play near the North Sea as a child. His father was a Viking chieftain (possibly a Jarl) and, although his father and mother wished Eric would choose a wife, he was more interested in enjoying the pleasures of unmarried life. One night while Eric was having sex with a servant, werewolves attacked their home killing his mother and baby sister. A werewolf managed to overpower his father, taking his crown.
It was given to a cloaked figure who walked off into the snowy night leaving Eric to tend to his dying father. Before Eric's father died, he declared Eric a king and made him promise to avenge his family.
Eric was wounded somewhere in Scandinavia and, against his wishes, his Viking companions decided to stay with him. They told Eric tales of glory and of women waiting for him in Valhalla. During the night, an unseen force murdered his comrades. A mysterious young, tattooed boy appeared and introduced himself as "Death" to the dying Eric. Having seen Eric's strength on the battlefield, this boy, the 1,000 year old vampire Godric, offered him immortality through life as a vampire.
When Eric asked what he got out of it, Godric said "Life". With a lust for life for which he was renowned, Eric agreed and Godric turned him into a vampire

Operation werewolf

During World War II, Godric and Eric posed as Nazi Schutzstaffel officers in order to infiltrate "Operation Werewolf". In 1945, they tracked a werewolf down to a house in Augsburg, Germany. The werewolf attacked and killed an American soldier before turning on Eric, but Godric stabbed her in the arm with a bayonet, pinning her to the wall.
Eric demanded to know whom her master was, but the werewolf said she would only tell them if Eric let her drink some of his blood. Godric was deeply offended by the idea, as Vampire Blood is sacred. Eric, however, did not care. He bit himself, and allowed the werewolf to feed from his wrist. She then revealed that her master is a vampire. Eric was shocked. The werewolf took advantage of his distraction, pushing Eric to the ground and attempting to stake him. Godric intervened and snapped the werewolf's neck.

Godric lectured his progeny about maintaining control of his emotions before promising to hunt the blasphemous vampire down. Shortly after this confrontation, Eric and Godric parted ways, and would not meet again for many decades.

Sheriff of Area 5

Eric acquired the position of Sheriff of Area 5 because of his age, his cunning personality and his ruthlessness. Eric has one vampire progeny named Pam who, like him, is incredibly loyal, to him in particular. Together they currently operate and own Fangtasia, a vampire nightclub in Shreveport, Louisiana.
