. . . it's Eric Northman!!
Eric Northman is the Sheriff of Area 5, a vampire district in Louisiana. A Viking warrior in life, he is over 1,000 years old, the oldest vampire in Louisiana, and a powerful member of the vampire community. Eric is manipulative, tricky and confident, and has little respect for human life. This does not make him particularly popular, but despite this, few can resist his bad-boy charm!
