Erik is an athletic man of athletic muscular build and slightly above average height, with moderately dark tan skin tone. His dark hair that appears to be dark red and is normally styled in a messy fashion. He is often seen wearing a dark blue lab-coat like jacket over his normal wear of a dark coloured shirt and black slacks. During intense emotional situations, typically anger, Erik’s physical form changes. It is believed to be a natural characteristic of his Draconian history. Obvious changes include pupil dilation into slit-pupils and scale-like texture appearing on the top of his hands and forearms. These changes appear cosmetic in nature and do not appear to have any other purpose beyond defense. Draconians have a physiological defensive ability relating to the scent glands that are located in the back of their throat. In dangerous situations, it is believed that Erik can release a thin oneirogenic general anaesthetic - described as an almost sickly sweet aroma - that will render assailants asleep. There is no known danger to humanoids save for a lingering headache upon waking. It is a chemical reaction that can only be triggered by intense flight-or-fight instincts. Erik must ingest, via tea, a chemical for his nutritional benefit. This tea is highly poisonous to those who are not from Eldoret.
Erik’s physiology remains a mystery as Eldoret is not part of the United Federation of Planets and the information remains lacking.

He is considered the second in line for the throne though he has insisted on abdicating the role. He was born in the capital city, Saphira, of the continent Bakunawa on Eldoret.

What is known, however, is that Vaeros has continued to excel in his studies upon leaving Eldoret. He was described as confident, hard-working, and extremely sharp by his professors and peers.

PLANETARY AND SPECIES BACKGROUND
Eldoret is the solitary planet in the heart of the Ezregura Nebula. It orbits a small yellow dwarf star. Due to its slow rotation on its axis, the planet experiences long hot days and cold evenings. It is a low-gravity and thin atmosphere Earth-like environment with several different climate zones. The largest landmass - Bakunawa - houses the sprawling mega-cities housed in glass domes to allow visitors the comforts of a normal gravity environment. Evolution has allowed the species to thrive in normal gravity under the safety of the glass domes, though the inhabitants are able to venture out into the natural environment with proper training. The planet is known for its beautiful singing forests and an impressive multitude of poisonous and carnivorous plants. It is a popular destination for scientists, specifically botanists and horticulturists.
The Dedreytisianeadreiyamian (loosely translated: Draconian) inhabit Eldoret. They are a peaceful and spiritual people who are deeply involved in all aspects of the sciences and arts. Typical lifespans are 500 to 600 years on Eldoret, with aging slowing after 100 years. The government is a monarch with a parliamentary system. The Drakivaeros has been the ruling family for five generations and has been considered the kindest of monarchs. Their reign has seen to be the most prosperous of all monarchs.
The religion has evolved to worship a large species that is native to the planet. The species of Dedreytisianeads (loosely translated: Dragons) are evasive and are considered to be myths to outsiders. However, historical records depict scaled serpent-like beings with feet and small wings that can reach up to 12-meters long and 4-meters tall. They are believed to live in all environments on the planet - from the dense forests to the near endless oceans.
Eldoret is currently considering entry into the United Federation of Planets.
