How Cobra joined the Tourney
Jellal enslaved Erik as a child until Brain arrived at the Tower of Heaven and took Erik and four other enslaved children to become members of his own guild, all with Jellal's permission. Erik soon became a member of the Oración Seis, one of the three most powerful Dark Guilds, and, along with his guildmates, began to seek out the lost, destructive Magic, Nirvana.
At some point before seeking Nirvana, Erik implanted Dragon Lacrima into his own body, which thereby resulted in him becoming the Poison Dragon Slayer.
While hunting for Zeref with Jellal, Erik continued to keep his identity concealed with his Cobra ID papers. Upon learning of a large serpent dragon, Cobra decides to learn its powers. Chasing him was a Gourmet Hunter named Zongeh.
