Erik has a chestnut coat and red eyes. He wears a gray tunic, gray gloves, orange boots, and an orange belt with a horseshoe belt buckle.
In the days following Robotnik's defeat, Erik joined Sally Acorn, Hamlin, Rotor Walrus, Hershey Cat, and Lupe Wolf on a skydiving trip. His parachute was caught in a tree and he was suspended from the branches. Fortunately he was uninjured, claiming "Only my pride is shot!" Sally freed him by throwing her flick knife with unerring aim through the parachute strap, letting him drop to the ground.
- A horse resembling Erik was among the Freedom Fighters contacted by Sally Acorn in Sonic the Hedgehog #52, "First Contact", to warn them about the Zone portals that were opening across Mobius. Whether this was intended to be the same character is unknown.
