Disclaimer: The following is a fan character for a potential sequel to the Borderlands franchise and only considers mechanics of all thus far released games, with a focus on the Pre-Sequel. Staying true with the thus far established lore, meme-tastic humor and gameplay, efforts to balance this fan character as much as possible have been made without sacrificing what makes him fun and powerful. Having taken several general complaints into consideration, this fan character has many more synergizing non-passive gamechanging abilities at his disposal, especially in terms of those that change his appearance like ‘Wilhelm the Enforcer’.
Please feel free to make suggestions. I am always happy to hear them. A nice comment is of course appreciated as well : 3
Erid is a literal jack of all trades, though instead of sacrificing great powers for mediocrity, everything at his potential disposal can be combined to create an unfathomably powerful character. With extremely high DPS, powerful and fast Melee, high Mobility, unseen Elemental Mastery, Indestructibility, outstanding Utility for his team and double / triple the amount of Gamechanging Skills, Erid is an universal force to be reckoned with for almost every play-style.
As a thus far inactive and ironic magnum opus of Jack’s slag experiments, Erid shares many personality traits with the dead ex-CEO of Hyperion. He revels in his own brutality and supremacy, constantly makes jokes at the expense of others and, as a child, cares little about anything else but himself. Still, deep inside his core is a confused and scared soul who wants nothing more than answers and affection.
Similar to Krieg, Erid has a multitude of voices, good and evil, inside his mind constantly clashing and attempting to dominate him at critical points. He often suffers from hallucinations outside of combat, reality shifting so everything but his prey fades from his awareness, even if they are only passive NPCs or companions. Ultimately, it is up to the player if he gives in to his instincts or grows as a person, and depending of their choice interactions and even outcomes of (personal) quests may change (such as survival or death of key characters to Erid). Even his own future fate may be affected by the average dominant choice (or lack there of) of the playerbase.
Also, similar to Wilhelm, his voice changes from normal to ethereal and deep the more he evolves. It starts off with something akin to ‘Zuko’ from the ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ and at his peak it resembles ‘Dark Star Thresh’ from ‘League Of Legends’. [All aspects of Evolution can be toggled on / off in Quick Change.]

##Background Story (Lost Echos):
Handsome Jack: You’ve kept me in suspense long enough, Sammy. Time to show what you got for daddy Jack, eh? And please… make it worth my time, yes?"
Dr. Samuels: O-of course, sir. Initiating release-protocol.
-many noises of futuristic machinery can be heard, as well as a cryo-capsule opening-
Dr. Samuels: After years of experimentation on… bandits… your ‘Plan B’ has taken form. May I present you, urgh… Erid.
Handsome Jack: What’s your problem with its name? It’s genius! Eggheads like you just got no creativity and…
-long, dead silence-
Handsome Jack: What the hell is this thing? Is this supposed to be a joke, because we are not amused, Sammy.
Dr. Samuels: No, sir. This is indeed it. The most perfect mix of alien gene material and science based on eridian technology from Elpis’ vault someone could afford to create. It’s a living bioweapon, just like you ordered.
-cute puppy noises can be heard-
Handsome Jack: This fluffy baby, really? And this is supposed to make bandits s*** bricks? I mean where are the sharp teeth, and weapons, and the pizazz?
Dr. Samuels: It was the only way to fulfill your demands. It was you who wanted a weapon based on eridian design that could do much more than humanly possible while not being gigantic.
Handsome Jack: Yes of course I want that for obvious reasons, but I did not want it that small! And what’s up with the fur? You’ve ever been on the ECHOnet before? Do you know what people out there think about hair that is longer than an inch? It’s the most disturbing thing you’ll ever see, trust me. Why do you think I enforce mandatory baldness on all my engineers? Hyperion is serious business, no yiff fest, capiche?
Dr. Samuels: I… think I understand, but the fur was necessary as a storage for its super-complex genetic code. 63 helices can’t just be…
Handsome Jack: Yeah whatever, it’s a failure. Just throw it in the grinder or whatever. I’d rather stick to my vault than embarrass myself with…
Dr. Samuels: It’s still evolving!
-short, dead silence-
Handsome Jack: Go on.
Dr. Samuels: The weapon is still in its infancy. To stabilize its powers, it needs to grow and learn to control its abilities. Eventually, that should hypothetically get rid off the fur as well, as it should start to resemble your… vision. I personally recommend tests with insufficient test subjects first before setting it on bandits.
Handsome Jack: Oh why did you not say that from the start, Sammy? Let it train up a little, then kill some crimson cretins and baaam instant super-weapon. That sounds wonderful on so many levels you can’t understand, and you may take pride in having made my day. I should reward you… hmm… by any chance, does your wife like pretzels?
Dr. Samuels: Test #07-11. Subject ‘Eridian Relentless Intergalactic Doomsday-Device’… creativity my ex-lover’s ass, Jack just jumbled these words together after he came up with the name that’s literally just the first syllable of…
-many growls of a variety of creatures can be heard, followed by Samuels’ sigh-
Dr. Samuels: The subject will now have its first real test in combat. Accepting Captain Cabrera’s… favor, I will now release him to a week’s worth of ‘unusable’ specimen of pandorian origin. Predicted expenditure of time is approximately 10 minutes, record set by… that one man who escaped. Beginning test now.
-After a brief moment of snarls, sickening noises of tearing flesh, breaking bones and animal screams can be heard among sounds of released energies-
Dr. Samuels: 7 seconds… huh. Well, I suppose that is that then. Handsome Jack will be overjoyed, and I… oh…
-sniffing sounds can be heard, followed by a quiet ‘arf’ of Erid-
Dr. Samuels: Unexpected puppy-love, probably a skag trait. Such loyalty and tameness was not calculated, but is excellent regardless.
-Dr. Samuels laughs while chuckles from Erid can be heard-
Dr. Samuels: Oh, you! Who’s a good boy, yes you are. But now, I want you to return to your cryo-pod for evaluation and further adjustments. You understand?
Erid: Yes, alpha.
-Fading sprinting can be heard-
Dr. Samuels: Oh… It learned speech, and what it said… I…
Handsome Jack: Do you have everything you need in Nicoyami’s labor here on Helios to continue your work, Dr. Samuels?
Dr. Samuels: Did you just…
Handsome Jack: Yes or no?!
Dr. Samuels: Y-Yes, sir. It’s more than I could have ever imagined.
Handsome Jack: Good. And now, you will tell me that you still have remote access to the computers in the hidden bunkers of the Exploitation Preserve. Correct?
Dr. Samuels: Yes, sir. The bandits did not find it after they…
Handsome Jack: Yes, I know! We lost it, no reason to beat around the bush. Everything’s kaput and raided! Except of course… what truly matters.
Dr. Samuels: The weapon?
Handsome Jack: Exactly. And now… listen very carefully, because you better not make any mistakes this time, or I swear I will forget myself. Roland is dead, but… I want every single one of his bastard-idolizers to die a slow, gruesome death for what they have done to… to my Angel…
Dr. Samuels: I… am sorry. Nobody knew you had… What do you want me to do, sir?
Handsome Jack: You have access to Bloodwing’s, Lilith’s and… my daughter’s DNA. Integrate them into its being, as well as the data I sent you.
Dr. Samuels: I understand, but the data were recordings of your daughter’s brain activity.
Handsome Jack: … I should strangle you for mentioning her… but I still need you, so consider it your lucky day. Yes, I don’t want only its powers to increase, but also its mind. With Angel’s wisdom and memories, he will know exactly what to do.
Dr. Samuels: Won’t human sentience make it difficult for you to control him?
Handsome Jack: Maybe, but I don’t care. Because what’s revenge worth if it ain’t personal? I know it won’t bring her back, but… I, and especially my Angel… will… have… justice.
Dr. Samuels: I… see. However, the procedure of digital transfer and integration of all data will take at least a month. And even after that, it must repeat all tests to assure maximum functionality.
Handsome Jack: Yes, and I will open the vault soon. Just make sure that if anything goes wrong, it will destroy every corner of this s***-hole of a planet, f*** it the whole goddamn galaxy. Every vault hunter, every crimson raider, everyone who would even think about betraying me. Let it tear everything apart until nothing’s left.
-Dr. Samuels remains silent-
Handsome Jack: As for me… I have a date with fate. One I have prepared myself for since 5 years…
-Handsome Jack exits slowly, followed by Dr. Samuels sobbing-
Dr. Samuels: You damn psychopath. No… I was your last slave. My creation… Erid will be free to decide his own path. And when the vault hunters kill you too, then I hope the universe can forgive me for my years of submission to you. All the blood of innocent people spilled… his daughter did not want it either, the data makes that clear. I hope, if there is truly something good in what I did all these years, it’s within Erid, and I hope he’ll recognize that. This is my final recording before I attempt to flee. If I deserve it… then I’ll see my wife again. Good luck, Erid. I know you’ll make it. If you find this… I’m sorry I couldn’t be there for you anymore.
-Uncountable noises of impact, destruction and explosions can be heard for a long moment. The last of those noises is shattering glass and gas streaming out. A whispered ‘Wake up’ can be heard. Then everything fades into nothingness-
The Watcher: Wake up.
-moans of pain and confusion can be heard-
Erid: Creator… H-Heather?
The Watcher: Creator, yes. Heather, no.
Erid: Where is she… alpha? I just… I thought I heard her voice…
The Watcher: You wish to find your creator? Unfortunately, there is not much left of Hyperion, as you can see for yourself.
-a short moment of silence-
Erid: Y-yes… who… are you?
The Watcher: A construct, just like you my child.
Erid: I am no construct. My name is Erid.
