In 2010, Henry Foss convinced her that werewolves could live with their transformative powers by embracing their true nature. When Lillian drugged him to make him lose control over himself, Erika transformed and engaged him in a physical confrontation until the drugs wore off.
The two had a long distance relationship for a while, until Erika came to visit Henry in Old City. He wanted to take her to Alfredo's for dinner, but they had to deliver a dormant abnormal, a lepidoptera, first. Will and Abby Corigan joined them on this mission. Once the creature was safe, Erika wanted to ask Henry to come with her to Britain, while he wanted to propose marriage and live with her in Old City. They realized that neither of them was willing to give up their life and career for the other, and sort of broke up.
Shortly after the uprising of the Hollow Earth abnormals, Erika returned to Old City to inform Henry that she was pregnant. The pregnancy hormones did, however, cause trouble with her emotions and the transformative abilities, making her agitated and somewhat dangerous. Eventually, Magnus figured out a way to slow down the pregnancy (from about 10 months to possibly 22) to ensure the safety of the child. This causes Erika's new due date to be sometime within the next year & a half. [4:Resistance] It is revealed by Henry some time later on that he & Erika have both decided to name their future child either "Alistair" if a boy or "Alice" if a girl in honor of their late friend Alistair. Henry also reveals the couple's plan for their child to be raised in England.[5:The Depths]
Erika was very close to her aunt, but eventually realized that her way of dealing with existence as a werewolf was wrong.
Henry Foss Edit
Erika and Henry fell in love shortly after they first met. Just as Erika's aunt was taken away to the UK Sanctuary, they kissed for the first time. After having a long distance relationship for a time, Erika tried to convince Henry to come with her to London. At the same time, he asked for her to stay and marry him. They ended up parting ways and Erika was left alone for sometime, until she came back to let Henry know she was pregnant.
Background, Notes, and Trivia Edit
- Even though the gender of Erika & Henry's unborn child is not revealed to them or to any other character on-screen in the show, it is revealed to the audience off-screen in the Sanctuary Season 4 dvd audio commentary for a later episode (Episode 4x11 - "The Depths") by Amanda Tapping & Gillian Horvath (minute mark start at 28:17). The child is to be a girl, and will grow up as human first until most likely reaching puberty before being able to shift into her HAP form. [6: Season 4 dvd]
