Erik is Hanna’s father and a former government agent. It isn’t made clear what triggered him to become a former agent, but his ability to go in and out of a government facility, with ease, hints he wasn’t bad at his job. Also, as a trainer, based on what we see from Hanna, it shows he was likely one of the top agents Marissa formerly had at her command.
