Eco is born and bred in Melbourne city, and has been visiting Avalon for several years. At the time of writing, he has a place to stay – a boarding house in St. Kilda – but it is closing down soon, and several people have already been forced out. The sad reality of many such establishments is that there are often problems with drug users, and the place Eco is staying is no exception – he is starting to get tired of the slammed doors and 2AM fights.

His future a little uncertain, Eco wouldn’t mind exploring the country, as the city he calls home is becoming more and more crowded. Eco would love a place of his own, to enjoy the peace and quiet, and probably get a dog – growing up, there was always one in the house, and Eco would love a loyal friend again.
