===Early life===
  +
Eric Sacks was born on an American military base in Okinawa, Japan. His father went to fight in the Vietnam War and was killed, and Sacks grew up as an outsider. He was taken in by Oroku Saki, a sensei who instilled Sacks with a love of Japanese culture and honor. He was particularly enthralled by a story in which an evil warlord who had poisoned the town's water supply was defeated due to a powerful alchemist.
   
He is portrayed by William Fichtner, who also portrayed [[Butch Cavendish]].
+
In 1999, Sacks moved to New York City at some point, becoming a wealthy businessman and scientist thanks for founding his successful giant corporation "Sacks Industries". There, he worked alongside a scientist by the name of Dr. O'Neil in creating a "Mutagen", which he had intended to use as an antidote to a plague he and Saki, the Shredder, would unleash on New York. Sacks wished to use the antidote to pretend to be a hero. The mutagen was tested on a rat and four Turtles, but when Dr. O'Neil uncovered Sacks' true plan, he torched the lab to destroy the research. Dr. O'Neil's daughter, April, rescued the test subjects, but the good doctor was killed by Sacks.

====Trying to recreate the Mutagen====
===Early Life===
+
For fifteen years, Sacks attempted to recreate the Mutagen, but it proved difficult without the project's notes and one of its chief scientists.
Eric was born in Japan in a nearby American military base, as a young child, his father went to the Vietnam War, but was killed during battle. Growing up, Shredder saved him and became his adopted son, and became obsessed in Japanese culture. He got enthrolled in a story about an evil warlord who poisoned the town's water supply and was defeated thanks to a powerful alchemist.
 
   
In July 1999, grown into a full adult, Sacks moved to NYC and became a scientist who teamed up with Dr. O'Neil, his former partner. They went on creating a mutagen, which was designed to be an antidote to cure a poison (Similar to the story) that him and the Shredder was going to unleash on New York. Sack's plan was to when the poison was released, he was going to save the day with the mutagen and be lended money from the U.S government, becoming insanely rich. The test subject for the mutagen was a rat (Splinter) and four turtles (TMNT). When O'Neil discovered Sack's true plan, he torched the lab, attempting to destroy the research for Sack's plans. Eric found out about this and killed him. The test subjects, however, were saved by O'Neil's daughter, April. And for the next 15 years, Eric tried to recreate the mutagen, but it was hard since the research was burned.
 
 
===Present Day===
 
===Present Day===
Sachs, now known as a wealthy businessman, has secretly started a terrorist organization called the Foot Clan, which attempts to rob docks, subways, etc, to regain components for the mutagen and carry on with his plans. He was asked by April, O'Neil's daughter to learn about the Turtles, who has been defeating the Foot Clan secretly for 3 months. Eric tells the backstory of project Ressinance, the project Dr. O'Neil and Sack's had been working on, but tells that O'Neil died due to the fire accidentally. After an attack in the sewers, Leonardo, Donatello, and Michelangelo (3 of the Ninja Turtles) have been taken and was held up for one purpose: to extract the mutagen out of them. However this fails due to April and Raphael (The 4th Turtle) trying to rescue the captured Turtles. However, Shredder attempts to stop Raphael, but the other Turtles were set free and Raphael, succumbing minor injuries.
+
In the meantime, Sacks and Shredder had started the Foot Clan, a paramilitary organization, to steal components for the Mutagen and generally spread fear throughout New York City. April, now a lifestyle reporter for Channel 6, attempting to break through to a higher position, begins chasing leads on the Foot. She ends up encountering now anthropomorphic Turtles. Remembering Sacks as her father's kindly boss and seeing his open philanthropy and will to extinguish the Foot Clan, she opens up to him about the Turtles, alerting him of their survival. He begins to formulate a plan with Shredder to capture the Turtles and extract the Mutagen from their blood.
   
Sachs, now in a getaway helicopter, tries to put his plan in action by planting the poison and releasing it on top of his tower in the heart of New York. As he plants the poison, he gets disturbed by April and her cameraman, Vern. Sach defends himself with a pistol, stating that he killed Dr. O'Neil in the process, he then was able to shoot once, Vern in the arm, however, April releases the sprinklers, which blinds Eric slightly. Vern, recovered, clocked him unconcious with a microscope hard onto the head. As the Shredder gets his defeat, Sach's tower collapses on the pavement which could have killed Eric during the fall.
+
The Turtles take April to meet their father, the former lab rat Splinter, and the Foot Clan track down the Turtles into their Sewer lair. Shredder and the Foot attack them, and bring back three of the Turtles for extraction - leaving Raphael behind, as one Foot Soldier had reported him dead.
  +
  +
Splinter, who was badly wounded in the fight with Shredder, urges Raphael and April to rescue the other Turtles. Together with April's ex-coworker Vern, Raph and April storm Sacks' upstate compound as he is finishing the Mutagen extraction. While Raphael is distracted with fighting Shredder, he takes a helicopter back to his tower in the heart of New York City.
  +
  +
===Defeat===
  +
While Shredder works on dispersing the gas and the Turtles attempt to stop him, Vern and April make a move to collect the Mutagen. They find Sacks there, and he fends them off with a gun, also revealing that he killed April's father. He lightly wounds Vern, and April sets off the sprinklers. An injured Vern grabs a microscope and clocks Sacks on the head, knocking him out and he is presumably arrested by NYPD.

Inside those turtles is the most precious compound on earth - mutagen. I want you to drain every ounce of their blood, even if it kills them.
~ Eric talking to the Turtles.

Eric Sacks is the secondary antagonist of the 2014 movie adaptation of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He is a student of The Shredder, and is obsessed with obeying him to release a poisonous gas all over New York so he can use an antidote and become richer. 

He was portrayed by William Fichtner, who also portrayed Butch Cavendish in Disney's The Lone Ranger, the Bank Manager in The Dark Knight, Roger van Zant in Heat and The Accountant in Drive Angry.

Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesEdit

Early lifeEdit

Eric Sacks was born on an American military base in Okinawa, Japan. His father went to fight in the Vietnam War and was killed, and Sacks grew up as an outsider. He was taken in by Oroku Saki, a sensei who instilled Sacks with a love of Japanese culture and honor. He was particularly enthralled by a story in which an evil warlord who had poisoned the town's water supply was defeated due to a powerful alchemist.

In 1999, Sacks moved to New York City at some point, becoming a wealthy businessman and scientist thanks for founding his successful giant corporation "Sacks Industries". There, he worked alongside a scientist by the name of Dr. O'Neil in creating a "Mutagen", which he had intended to use as an antidote to a plague he and Saki, the Shredder, would unleash on New York. Sacks wished to use the antidote to pretend to be a hero. The mutagen was tested on a rat and four Turtles, but when Dr. O'Neil uncovered Sacks' true plan, he torched the lab to destroy the research. Dr. O'Neil's daughter, April, rescued the test subjects, but the good doctor was killed by Sacks.

Trying to recreate the MutagenEdit

For fifteen years, Sacks attempted to recreate the Mutagen, but it proved difficult without the project's notes and one of its chief scientists.

Present DayEdit

In the meantime, Sacks and Shredder had started the Foot Clan, a paramilitary organization, to steal components for the Mutagen and generally spread fear throughout New York City.

Together with April's ex-coworker Vern, Raph and April storm Sacks' upstate compound as he is finishing the Mutagen extraction. While Raphael is distracted with fighting Shredder, he takes a helicopter back to his tower in the heart of New York City.

While Shredder works on dispersing the gas and the Turtles attempt to stop him, Vern and April make a move to collect the Mutagen. They find Sacks there, and he fends them off with a gun, also revealing that he killed April's father. He lightly wounds Vern, and April sets off the sprinklers. An injured Vern grabs a microscope and clocks Sacks on the head, knocking him out and he is presumably arrested by NYPD.
