Eric discovers and defeats a plot to destroy Nilfeheim.
Eric leaves to become a Union Fleet Officer.
When he is accepted to the Academy, Eric is described as: "198 cm tall and weighing almost exactly 90 kilos. His hair is blonde. He has gray eyes and some say he moves with the same purpose and grace as a Tiger or Nubhir Wolf. He has a greater tolerance to freezing temperatures and is able to stay submerged under water for a very long time because of gills and eyes that are adapted to see well under water thanks to a second set of clear eyelids. His muscles are denser than that of a standard human, allowing him to swim longer and deeper. Due to that he has great endurance and is much stronger than he looks."
More Information on Eric is withheld at this point due to ongoing plot and rewrite.
 Gretel Hemstead was the daughter of a Low man and decided to change her lot in life, by “bewitching” Isegrim. She did that with Illegal Shaill poisons and drugs she obtained via her sister who lived off planet. She manipulated Isegrim and increased his hatred towards Eric with the help of her drugs. Lothar was not even Isegrims son and had no drop of Olafson Blood in his veins.
 All Teachers of Eric were propecized in the Prophecy :” Prophecy of Before and Yet to come “ and preordained by the One Behind it all.
Eric Olafson may be the main character of the whole saga. His life is a colorful one, and indeed the adventure of all time.
Early Years Edit
Born on Nilfeheim, a Terran colony with a distinctive ancient Scandinavian based culture. His early life was met with pain and increasing trials. But through it all he always yearned for the stars and a place on a Navy Starship.....more specifically the Captain's seat!
Cadet Olafson Edit
Finally leaving his frozen home world he joined the United Stars Navy. Making friends along the way, he prepared for his desired goal.
Midshipman Olafson Edit
Just because he manage to survive the Academy, doesn't mean the adventure was over. In the shadow of a giant he learned, expanding his abilities and his circle of friends.
Ensign Olafson Edit
Eric most likely skipped this rank. At the time of his graduation and promotion, his friends were all promoted to Lieutenant, while he was made Acting Captain of the USS Tigershark. It has yet to be determined what rank he attained immediately following Operation FISH and if there ever was a time that he was an Ensign.
