Eric Northman is a book character from the Sookie Stackhouse novels, written by Charlaine Harris. Contrary to popular belief, the original character was not created by Godric, but by Appius Livius Ocella, who lured Eric to the side of the road and turned him into a vampire. Eric is over 1000 years old, and is the Area Five Sheriff, which means he has authority over all vampires living in the area. Though Eric appears to have no human left in him at all, he is actually quite humorous. Eric does have the ability to love as well, though he has a hard time expressing how he feels. When he was a mortal he was married to his brother's widow, Aude. The couple had 6 children together, but only 3 survived. In his immortal life, his mortal wife and children long gone, he tricks Sookie Stackhouse into marrying him.
