Eric Langton is the CEO and co-founder of Langton-Midas Industries, manufacturers of commercial jet engines based out of Boston, Mass. He is associated with the Black Robed Strangers and it is suggested that his company is secretly manufacturing time travel devices and supplying/supporting the strangers with them. It is also suggested that his company is providing a network infrastructure for the strangers to communicate through time with. He is also being protected from scrutiny by Agent Robert Obrinivich, although Eric's partnership with him seems conflicted.

Eric was the captain of a sailing vessel called the "Ravenrook" which capsized off the coast of Cape Cod in 1725. It is suggested that Robert Obrinivich, using the time travel device he confiscated from Jennifer Ryan's team in 1939 Nazi Germany, landed on the deck of Eric's ship and somehow was able to save him from peril. The details of his partnership with Robert, how he survived, how he got to the 21st century, and why he is helping the strangers is still shrouded in mystery.
