Nothing is known about Eric's life before or as the outbreak began. He may have lived in or near Woodbury before the outbreak.

Eric listens to The Governor's toast at the barbecue, he later enters the Arena and cheers on the gladiator fight.

Eric is seen being apart of the prison raid, having ridden in the back of the truck with Martinez. After fleeing the prison when the zombies overwhelm the survivors in the tombs, Eric fled into the woods alongside two other survivors where they shortly died.
Eric is killed by the Governor on the road with the rest of the army.
This list shows the victims Eric has killed:
- Possibly a few zombies.
- "Walk With Me" (No Lines)
- "Killer Within" (No Lines)
- "Say the Word"
- "Hounded" (No Lines)
- "The Suicide King" (No Lines)
- "Welcome to the Tombs"
- Eric's name was never confirmed on the show nor was he intended to be an established character, other than a Woodbury extra, but the name was given by actor Andrew Gostel, as he was informed he fit the description of James Lee Steagal (who at the time was known as Eric) from the Comic Series.
- While his actor confirmed that Eric, along with two other citizens, was not directly killed by The Governor as they fled through the woods, the casting director informed all extras that all Woodbury citizens are to be considered dead, despite whether or not they appeared in the Season 3 finale being gunned down by The Governor.
