Eric (Erurikku in Japanese) is a centaur Knight and a member of the Shining Force in the game Shining Force II: Ancient Sealing.

Background[edit | edit source]

Eric was saved by Creed when he was searching for the Holy Sword.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Like the other four characters at Creed's Mansion, Eric has a bit of an arrogant side. However, overall, Eric is a very reserved and polite individual, and the only one not to openly criticize Bowie's choice if he choses not to bring him.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

He can be promoted to either a Pegasus knight and a decent Paladin, though promoting him to either is a viable option against Chester or Rick. Before promotion his HP and attack will wane, but his defense and speed have sharp increases. He can be promoted to Paladin or Pegasus Knight, being one of the two strongest Paladins and easily the strongest Pegasus Knight. Post promotion all his stats will gain sharp increases regardless of class, with overall the Pegasus Knight being the weaker of the two. However, the loss of stats will be made up by the Pegasus Knight's flying ability. He is originally found in Creed's mansion and is one of 4 characters offered to join the force. Choosing him will result in a advantage later on due to several upcoming open field battles. He easily will team up with the other 3 Knight/Paladin classes to force a strong frontline during those battles.

Of the four characters offered in Creed's mansion, he is considerable the least useful character, as at this point the player already has two knights and will gain Higins and Jaro later. However, leaving him to be recruited later on will mean that he, like Randolf, struggles to gain levels and catch up to other Force members. He misses out on the plains battles that proceed later on, which is the part of the game which the centaurs best excel at if not chosen. Despite being the strongest Pegasus Knight, it is often better to promote him to the stronger Paladin due to the higher overall stats of the Paladin.

  • Eric´s attack and HP are not balanced for a level 24 character.
