Eric Ramos, 50, Detective Lieutenant NYPD, went through the academy with Eddy Moon. The two men remained close in spite of Eric’s holding a torch for Marie. Eric knows nothing of Eddy’s work as the Warrior of the Gate but shares his friend’s devotion to Marie’s and Raven’s well-being. His dedication to Marie did not keep Eric from marrying a distant cousin, Paloma. They had no children but shared 20 warm and loving years together before she passed of breast cancer.
Eric distrusts Alex although he can’t put his finger on why. He’s determined to protect Raven from what he perceives to be Alex’s possible interest. In that respect, he has no idea what he’s up against. He also isn’t a big fan of John Scott, and his dislike becomes active when he realizes John’s likely complicity in an act of brutal and incomprehensible sabotage.
