* AuthorAvatar: O'barr confirmed that Eric is his alter-ego. It's an example of TropesAreNotBad, and it's wonderfuly done. The comparison'd be even more obvious if you dyed Eric blond and give him glasses. Which, ironically becomes HilariousInHindsight due the fact that the 2012 reboot looks even more like O'barr!.

He's a total enigma, but for what we can guess, he tries his best, in his own twisted way to teach Eric to go on with his life. He succeeds in the end. On the other hand we have the mysterious WomanInBlack who appears in several chapters wearing a wedding [[spoiler: or funeral]] veil, watching over Eric, and in the end [[spoiler: kissing him]] when he accepts it's time to leave.
