I've tried that. I've tried everything. The only thing that keeps the flies off me is not to sweat... and when I don't have enough power to keep cool, I can't.”
A greasy, sweating man, Eric suffers due to a peculiar condition his mutation brought upon him: His body produces fly nutrients, which attract flies en masse. The sweating makes it all the worse, meaning that the only way to stay safe from the damn flies is to have the air conditioning turned all the way up.
Flies have tormented him his entire life. He ran a hotel in downtown Broken Hills, but had to sell it because of the flies. Then he ran a tavern, but had to sell it too. He tried to be the power generator foreman, but the flies kept flying into the machine, so he dropped out of that too. His life is a path of misery, in other words.
