Erik Zanasiu-Varma is the adopted son of James Zanasiu and Sharon Varma and brother of James Zanasiu Jr. In 2039, he attended the movie theater premiere of the film starring his father. (Disruptive Selection)
- Erik was originally the protagonist of Chasing Seconds in early drafts, but eventually LettuceBacon&Tomato had to cut him and replace him with a new character because of the importance of genetics in the story (Junior had to inherit Shelton's disease from his father) and because Lettuce doesn't like borrowing characters and leaving them differently from how he got them (i.e. stranded in 2053).
