Eric was born in Chicago, Illinois, by his parents, Melissa James and Thomas James. His parents lived in Frankclay, Missouri but they had been visiting family in Chicago. When he was 5 he found interest in the Recorder, and before he knew it he was given a real Clarinet at 7, he loved music and was happy to know he would be able to play something in band. He practiced playing songs with his best friend Jason, who could play Percussion.
When he was 8, his best friend as well as himself moved to another part of Missouri, where they met Justin and Marybeth. They became friends ever since and the group was almost inseperable. Upon them moving to Lakewood Eric felt feelings towards Jason that he couldn't explain. He had done horrible things, yet still Jason was his friend. Eric later began dating Ethan, he was happy with his choices, because if he hadn't have done thsose things then he would never have meet Ethan.
Althought he doesn't talk to much with other people, Eric has met great friends and kept his best friends closer than before.
Eric is a fairly tall male teen. He has brown eyes and short-ish brown hair. He is an athlete with a muscular body, he enjoys playing basketball. He has strong lungs from playing clarinet. Eric is fairly strong. 6'6.
Eric can be stubborn, hard headed, and blunt, but he usually is sweet and kind. He may hold grudges with some people, but other than that he is smart about who he talks to. He loves speaking with people but isn't all that social when it comes to meeting new people. He would much rather stick with the friends he already had, but when push comes to shove he wouldn't mind meeting new people.
