A quick guide to Eridan, brought to you by [S] Kanaya: Return to the core. 

Eridan is humble enough to say thanks to his friends for showing faith in him and spending some time on him. 

He may be a bit conceited while saying his thanks, but you know, still. 

If you say anything about hope, he’ll want to know exactly what it’s about. 
Let’s have a look at his relationships. 
We’ll start with Feferi. 

At this point of time, he’s over her, and doesn’t really want the topic to come up much more. (In addition, he’s telling Sollux to lay off any black implications.) 

Eridan wants to stay with her, and he’s totally okay with the fact that they’ll just be friends. It hurts, of course, but it’s better than losing her. 

He is also perfectly capable of being civil, and he’s seriously tired of everyone constantly bringing up his quadrants when he just wants to talk about something completely unrelated. Such as switching sides for self-preservation. 
Sollux! 



Sollux is a dick towards him.
Really, if you’re on Trollmegle and you meet an Eridan, being Sollux (or Rose in a bad mood) is nearly your only excuse for being a complete asshole towards him, but in turn, you get to treat the seadweller like shit while staying in character. 

Eridan is an asshole back, though. 

A lot. 
Karkat next. 

Karkat actually gives a shit. 

When I see Karkats on Trollmegle being complete dicks towards Eridans for more than a few moments of exasperation, I weep for characterisation. 

Eridan talks to Karkat when he has quadrant problems, because he knows Karkat will actually listen and give him advice. 
Kanaya! 

Like we’ve seen, he’s grateful as all hell to Kanaya. 


Kanaya is a supporter. She made his magic wand science stick, and Eridan has trust in her. Also, Eridan doesn’t sense the sarcasm, and genuinely intends to use his powers in the way he thinks will be good. 


She’s sarcastic to him about it sometimes, but she doesn’t really mean to. In fact, she makes sure to admit it early when she worries she might have offended him. This has absolutely nothing to do with his royal status or anything - just respect for a friend. 

And guess what? No offense taken! 

In fact, he takes so little offense that he offers to give Kanaya lessons in being more offensive. Read into that as you will, but they’re tight, man. 
Let’s round things up for now. 






I could go on and on about characterisation of Eridan, but that’ll have to wait. For now, I’ll just say that [S] Kanaya: Return to the core. should be mandatory brush-up for anyone roleplaying as Eridan, writing Eridan, or interacting with Eridan as Sollux, Karkat, Kanaya, or Feferi.

"In contemporary society we’re expected both to praise the miracle of birth and deplore it as the wages of sin. We expect men to take cold showers if they get an erection, and to take Viagra if they can’t. We encourage straight women to kiss in bars, and actual lesbians not to. We expect young men to have sex they’re not ready for, and young women to decline it when they are. We’re expected to say we like oral sex even when we don’t, and to say we dislike anal sex even supposing we do. We’re expected to buy sudoku books with bikini models on the cover and to read Playboy for the articles. We’re expected to gradually lose interest in our spouses and not to have affairs. We’re expected to stress about unplanned, unwanted pregnancy and to see stopping to put on a condom as unromantic. We expect to believe men don’t read romance novels and women don’t watch porn, even though there’s maybe a 30% crossover both directions. If you’re a woman you’re expected to zealously guard your hymen up to the point you get married (whether you wanted to or not), and then upon receipt of a marriage license you’re expected to turn around and let some guy pound away at it whenever he wishes (whether you wanted to or not.) Looking in another direction if you’re a man you’re expected to run screaming from the room if your wife puts her purse down too close to you… because your wife’s purse might somehow magically “make you gay.” We’re supposed to pretend that women faint at the sight of blood, and ignore that men are far more inclined to. We expect women to depend financially on men and expect men to dump their wives for floozies at the drop of a thong. We’re expected to think a model is sexy if she’s in a Victoria’s Secret poster at the mall, and we’re expected to think a mom in workout pants and a sweatshirt isn’t sexy if she’s in the same mall pushing a stroller."
