Losing Hunter Rose put Eka in a very lonely place for a long time. The flirting was more or less over, and making friends was nigh impossible. Luckily, though, as nearly two years have passed, he's starting to feel more confident and willing to open up. His vanishing game while he recovered led him to return to Jakarta for a while, though he is now back in the United States, living in Riverport Massachusetts and spending his time with James, who he used to work with.

Eka is an ancient Javanese demon who is known for his masterful use of magic to bring wealth and luck to those who will pay him enough for the honor of his assistance. His kind are descendants of sorcerers who traded their souls to demons in exchange for the ability to steal money by simply walking past it. They were therefore cursed to shift into pigs at night, though their descendants can shift at will instead.
He is able to shift into a fearsome and oversized boar, able to tear through enemy lines, trample, and rend with sharp tusks and unnatural fangs. He is capable of taking down everything from large cats like tigers and leopards to humanoid enemies. He can easily tussle with the natural predators of his species and come out alive. Wounds sustained in boar form will heal without scarring, if he survives them.
Eka's scathing humor and quick wit make him ideal for his job. He is ambitious and driven. He uses cruel magic with no regard for anyone else's safety or health. He is not offended by the jokes one would expect about his swine heritage. He is very proud of his tusks, and rightfully so. In boar form, he's monstrous.
He is not part of the Christian order of angels and demons. He does not bend knee for any angel, demon, or god from any sect, even his own. He is not held accountable to the same rules and customs as a Christian demon is.
Eka, like the rest of his kind, can be bound to someone and therefore be required to serve them for a certain amount of time. What makes his situation different than some is that he willingly enters these contracts with people he sees worthy of his time, and gives them whatever they want during the period, so long as they understand that there will be costs, eventually.
He actively hunts and kills his own kind. By consuming them, he grows stronger. At this point, there are none left in his current home of North America he is aware of. He also cannibalizes humans.

Eka was born in 1189. He grew to full power while fighting Indonesia's colonizers. Along with most of the rest of his kind, he did not like the influence of Europeans on his culture and home. He was known for his brilliant sabotage plots and for his willingness to chase something or someone down as far as he had to so that the outcome fell in his favor.
Eka fought back against the Japanese invasion during the 1940s. During this time, thousands of Indonesians were tortured, arrested with no reason, executed, forced into labor, and raped. In a moment of anger, he attempted to free a work camp by himself. While he managed to liberate most of the prisoners, he took two bullets to the lower back in human form and was captured. He bears the scars to this day.
He was imprisoned for some time as an oddity and a curiosity when initial torture failed to give up any useful information. Upon realizing what he was, Eka was pushed to use his powers to provide them luck for military success. He refused, and only managed to escape execution by feigning romantic interest towards a Japanese officer who he realized would be easy to sway. He was taken under the man's wing, and remained there until his escape shortly before the end of the war.
Upon the defeat of the Japanese and the movement for Indonesian independence, Eka got himself back together and moved to the United States, where he has lived since the mid 1950s. After a stint in New York City, he has moved to Riverport, Massachusetts, to be close to one of his last living friends. The relationship has recently turned into something more.
