How Prince Eric joined the Tourney
Despite being of royalty, Eric is an accomplished mariner who is often seen partaking in various duties aboard ships in his own fleet. Eric is a skilled helmsman as he is seen steering ships in both the 1989 film and its sequel. This could be due to the fact that Eric's kingdom is coastal and most of the subjects make their livings by shipping and fishing, and as such it is expected that the rulers be skilled in maritime trades. He even skewers through Ursula in a split-second hard turn in a derelict ship as well as assisting his crew members in storms. Prince Eric spends much of his free time out at sea, fishing. going on explorations, or celebrating his birthday. Grimsby, his servant and personal confidant, often accompanies him on his voyages.
One month has passed since marry Ariel. He received a donated razor hat that belonged to Kung Lao. When he died, it saddened his cousin, Kung Jin who tried to steal it back. After a heated fight with Eric's guards and subjects, Kung Jin reveals he wanted the family respect, and becomes friendly rivals with the Prince.
