For various reasons, Erig became irrevocably disillusioned with the
state of Bacrum-Valeria, particularly with the way that Bishop Branta
was running the country. As a result, he was quite eager to join the
Valeria Liberation Front, an anti-Branta guerilla organization headed
by Sisteena and Selye Foriner, when it first formed. As the movement
grew and grew Erig moved on up in the ranks, gaining power, influence,
but most of all, trust; he was even promoted to being a captain in the
Valeria Liberation Front.
That is, of course, until Dark
Knights Oz and Ozma were instructed to wipe out the Liberation Front
following the Front's rescue of Priest Plancy Mown. The Dark Knights
quickly discovered the Front's hideout at Fort Bodo, and were quite
merciless in their attack, slaughtering nearly the entire Front. The
only survivor that was present at Fort Bodo during the attack was
Selye Foriner; Sisteena was with Denim and his troops, and Erig and a
few of his troops were away on a secret mission.
In the following weeks, Erig and his troops joined up with Selye and
continued to do the work that they had set out to do. They took refuge
at Fort Kadoriga, until word got to Denim that there was "pirate
activity" going on there. Denim heard, Denim came, and Erig took him
to meet the "leader" of the pirates, Selye--shortly after, Selye and
Erig joined Denim's troops.
