Useful information on Eric Brady
* Was a photographer for Countess Wilhelmina.
Eric Brady was born to Marlena and Roman Brady. He's a twin to Samantha Brady. Both were sent to Colorado to be with their grandparents and to attend school but Sami returned during high school. Eric returned later, after high school and during the time when Marlena and Roman were no longer together and she was with John Black.
When Eric's sister Sami feigned that her son Will was Austin's child, Eric did what he could to unravel the truth and learned on Sami and Austin's wedding date that Will couldn't be Lucas' son. Carrie stopped the wedding while Eric felt guilty about outing his sister. Sami eventually forgave him.
Eric had a stalker following him around Salem. Jed Fox was someone he knew in school and who caused a lot of issues for him. Jed was a date rapist who tried to make it appear as though Eric was the real rapist. Jed threatened to kill Sami if Eric didn't take responsibility for Jed's crime but Eric refused to do that and was able to convince Jed to accept what he had done and take a hike. After this, Eric was working as a photographer at Countess Wilhelmina when he met Nicole Walker who was a waitress at the Java Cafe. He offered to make her a model and the two got together in an intimate relationship until Nicole's past came to haunt her. Nicole got involved with Lucas and married him, when Eric's attentions were on Sami during the Franco Kelly murder trial. Eric then got involved with Greta Von Amberg. He couldn't get Nicole out of his head and started cheating on Greta with Nicole. Greta broke up with Eric and he left town shortly thereafter.
Sami, Marlena and Sami's children have visited Eric in Colorado since he left Salem and returned November 13, 2012... as a priest. He was keeping a secret, that he was a photographer in South Africa when he saw something terrible. A priest stood up for a child who would otherwise have been murdered and took her place. He was killed in front of Eric, who couldn't forgive himself for not taking the child's place. He has been back in the family fold and already into the issues surrounding his siblings, while trying to help Nicole Walker better herself. This worked for a time and Nicole started to fall in love with Eric. Eric overheard her telling Brady this and was shocked. Eric eventually realized he too had feelings but pushed them aside. When Kristen DiMera wanted to get back at Marlena for taking what she thought was hers (John), she had a doctor, Dr. Chyka, concoct some drug she could use to drug Eric and rape him. She set up a recording device while the duo had sex but before she could figure out what to do with it, it got into the hands of Victor Kiriakis, who gave it to Marlena. Marlena didn't know what the contents of the DVD were but played it during Kristen's wedding to her son Brady, thinking it was material which would cause Brady to dump Kristen. Eric was floored, as were all of the wedding guests at what Kristen did. It ruined his relationship with Brady, who thought his brother elected to have sex with his bride. Brady dumped Kristen who left town before anyone could find evidence that Eric indeed was set-up. Nicole and Daniel did eventually find evidence that Dr. Chyka was behind the rape but Nicole withheld the information because her relationship with Eric was growing and she worried Eric would go back to the priesthood if he had the proof. She did hand the evidence over after Eric learned she'd been keeping it from him and they broke up.

Eric comes face to face with Kristen, outside the courtroom.
Everyone gapes in shock as Daniel walks into SPD with Kristen. Sami stops Marlena from lunging and Kristen smirks. She didn't realize she'd attract such a crowd for her homecoming. "Miss me?" Sami and Marlena yell at her while Hope and Eric come between them. Abe shows up and Jenn and Nicole listen in horror as Daniel explains about the kidnapping. The harpies start again while Eric stares Kristen down. Hope takes Kristen into her office. Daniel collapses and Abe takes him to the hospital. Sami can't reach Brady - he left his cell home so Nicole learns from Henderson that Brady left home a while ago. Meanwhile, Kristen asks for her lawyer. Hope goes back to the others and asks her lawyer, EJ, to come with her. Roman walks in as EJ's led to Kristen. Nicole snipes she'll hold Sami responsible if EJ gets Kristen off. Jenn goes to check on Daniel while Hope cuffs Kristen and leaves a guard by the door while Kristen explains the kidnapping. In the main room, Sami and Nicole go at it. Roman comes between them. Sami and Nicole elect to watch Kristen since some of the SPD guards are on the DiMera payroll. Roman gives both ladies the boot and Hope asks Nicole for no press. Roman and Marlena head to the DA's office. In Hope's office, EJ calls his sister a twisted psychotic little b****. He tells her his access to everything DiMera has been curtailed because he agreed to keep her secret about Eric. Kristen thinks it started when he did Abigail. EJ says that was one of the biggest mistakes - another was not staying away from Kristen. "We are finished," he says. Kristen attempts to make a deal. She'll get Samanther back if he helps her out of this bind. Roman and Marlena return. There's enough evidence to charge Kristen with sexual assault and drugging Eric. She can't get bail. Hope refuses to allow Marlena a minute alone with the prisoner so she goes off to find Brady. In Hope's office, EJ refuses Kristen's help. She reminds him they're family. He tells her Samantha and his children are family. He'll help the DA put her away. Kristen warns that if he betrays her there'll be a steep price. "I'll destroy you." EJ grins and nods. He jokes to the guard that he's being threatened by someone cuffed to a chair. Hope arrives and EJ refuses representation.
Eric tells Sami in the Horton square that he'll never be a priest again. Sami blames Nicole and calls her a lying baby-stealing b****. Eric tells her to shut up and explains what went down in Rome. Nicole tells her Eric refuses to go back to the priesthood because he hates her guts. Sami blames her once again and Nicole snarks off. "If EJ helps Kristen go free, trust me. You are dead." Sami gets a call from home and has to rush off. Eric wishes they'd have caught Kristen months ago when he still loved Nicole.
