|Appeared in||Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.|
Eric Koenig was a S.H.I.E.L.D. communications agent who was put in charge of the secret Providence base in Canada. Koenig lived in isolation at Providence from the time of the Chitauri Invasion until he was killed during the fallout from HYDRA's uprising within S.H.I.E.L.D.
When Agent Coulson and his team arrived at Providence, Koenig was there to greet them. Taking Coulson aside, he explained that Fury was still alive, after broader S.H.I.E.L.D. communications had indicated his death, but that his survival was to be known to only a select few.
Koenig's distrust of Coulson's team had him subject each of them to an exhaustive lie-detection test. All of the team passed and were presented with identification lanyards, although Agent Ward had difficulty in answering some of the questions, prompting Koenig to pull a gun on him. Ward ultimately bluffed his way through his reason for being at the base, leaving Koenig little option but to vet him as he had the others.
When Coulson split the team, Koenig was left at the base with Ward and Skye. He was apprehensive about Skye's plan to hack the NSA for surveillance of the Fridge raid, and tried to dissuade her from it, but Skye's persuasiveness and the lure of living a little on the edge got the better of him and he agreed to let her continue. While she was gone, he was approached by Ward who strangled him with a garrot wire and stuffed his body in a vent above a storage room. His body is found by Skye, who realizes Ward's true allegiance but acts none the wiser about it and leaving a warning for the rest of the team.
