"No! It was your fault, Eric!"
— Chris blaming Eric for breaking his toy

Chris was the deceased brother of Eric who was killed by their abusive father.


After Eric and Chris' mother was killed (by who is heavily implied to be Mira following the fateful placement of the Snail), their father turned into an alcoholic who regularly beat them with Eric receiving the brunt of the punishment. This dysfunction and abuse led Eric to becoming traumatized, explaining his panicked and emotional personality during the game.

The situation climaxed when Chris was killed by his father - it is implied that their father drowned Chris in a bathtub as punishment for misbehaving while Eric witnessed this. Eric then dumped his brother's body into a lake, leaving a traumatic emotional scar on his psyche.
