Erik (カミュ Camus) is a character in Dragon Quest XI. He is a former Thief who becomes a companion to the Hero early in the story after abandoning his life of crime.

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Erik is a young man with blue eyes and slicked back, spiky cyan hair that has a single forelock. His hair is his favorite trait about himself and he has a tendency to run his hands through his hair when he's excited. [1] He has a single gold hoop earring on each ear and wears purple beads around his neck. His clothes are relatively simple, wearing a hooded dark green tunic with lacing that exposes his chest, a red sash tied around his waist, dark blue trousers, fingerless gloves, and leather shoes worn with orange socks that are held up with string. He carries a scabbard with a knife on his sash, which is his prized possession.

Erik is a man with a troubled past that he does not speak openly of, and his criminal career has led him to rub elbows with the shadier sides of society. Despite his aloof exterior Erik has a kind and compassionate heart, as shown when trouble happens for friends and family. He is a seasoned traveler and guides the Luminary along his journey. Erik is always there to support the Luminary and his faith in the man is unshakable. He relieves stress by exercising and working up a sweat. Erik's favorite food is wild traveler's stew. When he was still a slave for the Vikings, they forced him to do all the cooking for them. His personal motto is "tomorrow is another day". As part of his daily routine, he sharpens his favorite knife and maintains his thieving tools. Erik has a tendency to bicker with Veronica, who refers to him as an idiot. However, the two of them are more alike than different and share a unique bond of affection. His weapons of choice consist of Knives, one-handed Swords, and Boomerangs, and he is even capable of dual wielding weapons.


Dragon Quest X[edit]

Erik was added as an NPC to the MMO as a promotional event for the "S: Definitive Edition" version of XI being launched in Japan. He gives the player a short quest, and upon completing it rewards his outfit as a cosmetic armor set.

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age[edit]

"Glad you're coming along. The Seer told me to stick with the Luminary when I found him and that's just what I'm going to do."

Erik is an orphan from the Sniflheim region, with his only family being his younger sister Mia. The siblings were taken in by the vikings that pillage the area and forced into servitude. Erik and Mia depended on each other to survive their difficult youth, with the latter developing the same sense of materialistic greed that her masters did. During his teens, Erik would make the disastrous mistake of giving Mia a necklace rumored to have the power to turn anything the wearer touches into solid gold. Mia runs wild with this power and turns everything around her into gold, even animals, which activates the necklace's curse and begins to transformer her as well. Mia cries out for help as the changes take place, and Erik hesitates before attempting to save her. Though he could have done nothing to prevent the curse for taking hold, and it being likely that he would have been transformed as well if he had touched Mia during the process, Erik blames himself for the apparent death of his little sister.

Erik would flee the Sniflheim region out of shame, and take to a life of robbery in order to sustain himself. During this period he would meet Derk, and the two would become successful partners in crime. At one point during this period, Erik would meet The Seer. The mysterious prophet proclaims that if Erik were to infiltrate Heliodor castle and steal the fabled Red Orb and meets with the Luminary "underground", then he would find the forgiveness he longs for. Erik doesn't believe a word of what is told to him and instead only steals the orb because it was a treasure Mia once longed for during their childhood.

Erik hides the orb with Derk after the heist and is later captured, spending nearly a year in the castle dungeon while slowly digging a tunnel through the bottom of his cell. It is during this period where he encounters the recently imprisoned Luminary and, after realizing that the Seer's prophecy is coming true, pledges his loyalty to the man and aids his escape. After a frantic flight from the Heliodor guards led by Hendrik, the duo escape through a teleportal to the distant city of Hotto and begin the adventure to reach the World tree in earnest.

When Erik and the party go to Sniflheim to retrieve the Blue Orb, Erik will become distant and quiet. In Party Chat he will offhandedly state that he and his sister grew up in the area, but will offer no elaboration. After the fall of the World tree at the end of the first act, Erik is captured by one of Mordegon's Spectral Sintinels, Indignus. He awakens in a cell with a healslime, who had soothed his injuries while he was unconscious. Making a swift escape, Erik takes the healslime with him and avoids detection by the dragon monsters under Indignus' employ. During this sequence the healslime will speak of things that Erik has not told him of, such as his name, the past of his sister, and his journey with the Luminary. When cornered by Indignus and facing death, the healslime revels himself to be the Seer and offers Erik a fighting chance to save his life: exchange his most precious possession for a tremendous, temporary boost in power. Erik agrees and fights his way through the horde to escape, but at the cost of his memories of Mia and his friends.

  • This scenario is only present in the S: definitive edition of the game.

The amnesiac Erik is latter found stowing away on Sylvando's personal ship in order to steal food. The party is shocked that he does not recognize them, and assure him that hes hasa place to stay until his memories return. A priest in Sniflheim remembers Erik from years before, and tells the party about Erik's previously hidden past. Hearing this overwhelms Erik and he leaves as his memory struggles to return. Erik then returns to hut he and his sister grew up in, and discovers that Mia has been freed by Mordegon in order to put her greed and anger to shame as one of his Spectral Sentinels: Gyldygga. With the help of the Luminary, Erik frees his sister of Mordegon's corruption and finds the atonement he was looking for. Erik wants to stay with the Hero to defeat Mordegon.

When the party finds the orichalcum in the floating Battleground, Erik rushes past the group and gets carried away thinking about the value of the gem. he excuses himself for the outburst, stating it was a force of a bad habit.

Dragon Quest Treasures[edit]

Alongside Mia, Erik is the deuterologist of Dragon Quest Treasures. The game begins with the two sneaking around a viking vessel for a bit of fun before rescuing two unusual creatures from a cage on the main mast of the viking ship they voyaged on. The siblings are flee from the ship on a smaller boat with their new friends in tow, and after exploring an uncharted island and retrieving a pair of incredible dirks are sucked through a teleportal to the floating archipelago of Draconia suspended high in the sky.

The children are pulled into the different world separately and are deposited far apart, with Mia and Porcus having to rescue Erik and Purrsula from a Heartless hunter at the top floor of the abandoned factory in The Paternoggin. Reunited, the pair of daggers the children possess react with an abandoned train at the zenith of the building and the two depart for Eggshell Island. From there, the quartet embark on a colossal treasure hunt spanning the entire island chain, competing with rival factions such as the villainous Thunderous Plunderers and the friendlier Sylphanian Expedition. Erik is partnered with Purrsula, who perches on his shoulder when at rest.
