Eric is a 21 year old who still lives with his mother and his stepfather. When Eric's stepfather kicked him out of the house, his mom gave him a video will of his grandfather. In the video his grandfather leaves him his criminal empire the 100. Eric then returns to home only to kill his stepfather and recruits his friends to join him. He renames the 100 C.R.U.S.H. (The Companions Recently United to Spread Hate).
Later, Eric has hired the Secret Six to kill the Doom Patrol so he can use Oolong Island as his base. He sent the women his grandfather left him to put a bomb in a dormant volcano so he can use that as his headquarters.
