Erik is a genetically modified human being, designed by Bauer Biotech. Erik is a little over a year old, but appears to be about six years of age, and has the intelligence of a child twice that age.
His feet have opposable thumbs that allow him to move along walls and ceilings in zero-G with ease. His bones, musculature and cardiovascular system are optimized for orbital life. It is unlikely he would survive in full gravity. Erik’s creation is highly illegal.
