Eric Northman is a 1000 year old vampire played by Alexander Skarsgård in the HBO series, True Blood. He is the sheriff of area 5 in Louisiana, a position of great power in the vampire community, and he owns a Vampire bar called Fangtasia in Shreveport. He was a Viking in his human life before the vampire Godric found and turned him.
Eric is typically perceived as somewhat of a "Bad boy". He is confident, arrogant, powerful and decietful. He is often accused of caring about no one but himself, although we later find that he does care and feel emotion for others. In addition, he is incredibly good looking and, frankly, sexy as hell. As far as personality goes, we see a different and softer side of Eric when his maker, Godric, comes into the picture. Although he’d like to pretend otherwise, its obvious Eric really loves and cares about Godric. When he finds out Godric has gone missing, he travels to Dallas, Texas and uses Sookie Stackhouse’s telepathic abilities to locate him. After the Fellowship of the Sun’s terroristic attacks, we see just how much Godric means to Eric in the heart wrenching, emotional scene of Godric’s suicide.
(In reference to Godric)
Sookie Stackhouse: "He's you're maker, isn't he?"
Eric Northman: "Don't use words you dont understand"
Sookie: "You have a lot of love for him."
Eric: "Dont use words I don't understand"
