There are some Eirik might take to more than others; he would probably align himself with those on the "renegade" side of the spectrum (for lack of a better term). He is also more likely to react favorably towards elves of all kinds, whether Dalish or not. Anyone else might have an uphill battle, but he's quite loyal once he's found a friend! Eirik makes a ride-or-die companion and can even become a bit clingy and attention-seeking.
Ironically his vasallin derives from Sylaise, as finding a home has always eluded him and occupies a big chunk of his wants & motivations.
A lot! Eirik has been an enemy of the common folk for a long time and shows little remorse for it. He doesn't take much stock in human/social laws. He obviously has a bone to pick with the world and he likes to let people know. This can range from annoying to dangerous depending on the person. So it is really not hard to imagine how he could be an "enemy" to someone!
Despite first impressions, Eirik has a depth of emotional capacity in him and longs for connection. Can even be considered a bit of a "romantic" but rarely has the means to act it out; upon meeting the right person he can even come onto them pretty hard, be extremely flirty, etc. Eirik is homosexual and is only interested in men.
Eirik is a scout working for Leiliana. His job duties include tracking, finding, and occasionally, assassinating.
