Eric Northman, played by Alexander Skarsgard on the HBO series True Blood.

About Eric: "Sheriff of Area 5, a vampire district in Louisiana. Originally of Nordic descent, he is very old and very powerful in the vampire community. He runs the vampire bar Fangtasia, and discovers Sookie's unique ability during her first visit there. Intent on following the Vampire justice system, he uses Sookie to figure out who has stolen money from him. In the basement of Fangtasia he imprisons people who are suspected of committing crimes against vampires while he investigates. During the first season, it is moderately implied that he is romantically interested in Sookie, looking more to use her gifted abilities." (Wikipedia)

Cabrini6000- Actually, the first four Sookie Stackhouse books were published 4 years before the Twilight series.

You should watch though. It's a great show.

Wicked - Yes, hurry lol. I want your Bill in my game.

thank you so much. =)
i was hoping someone would make an eric. he's so handsome.
now my sookie has someone to play with. =)

you rock!!! <3

Cabrini6000- herculean is right. plus if you read the books (don't know if you have, but i'm assuming you haven't if your saying it's a rip-off) , you would see the two are as different as night and day. twillight is more so aimed at teens, while i think sookie stackhouse/ true blood more towards adults.

FAVen this!!!!

Excuse me, but you need to check your publishing dates. Charlaine Harris started writing the Sookie Stackhouse novels years before Stephanie Meyer wrote the first word of "Twilight." If anyone is ripping something off, it's Ms. Meyer.

this is a great Eric Northman thanks so much hun!!!

Cabrini6000-i think you have been scolded enough but as a TrueBlood fan that ticked me off too...

if you watched the show you'd know your comment is laughable

Too bad the Sookie Stackhouse books (what True Blood is based off of) were written BEFORE twilight... So to correct you, Twilight is a ripoff of True Blood.

Actually True Blood came before Twilight. The True Blood series is based on a book series that was made years ago, before Twilight. So technically if you think anythings a rip off, Twilight is. But personally I think they are both unique ideas, neither rip offs.
