Lord Erekosë, also known as Dead Erekosë is an aspect of the Eternal Champion, and the first identity assumed by John Daker. He is large, muscular, and wears plain, utilitarian armor, sometimes with a bear pelt draped over it. When his race is stated, Erekosë is usually black. He wields the radioactive sword Kanajana, a diluted aspect of the Black Sword. Erekosë's long-lost love is the Eldren princess Ermizhad.
