Gahck of the Savage Land Fire Tribe was seen holding him as a baby after the departure of the adventurer, Wolverine who was hinted at being his father.[2]

The idea that Wolverine had a son named Erista originated from the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Vol 4 #1. The author indicated it was his intent to make Erista the same child glimpsed in Wolverine: The Jungle Adventure #1, confirming for the first time the sex of the child and that it was Logan's. Although the author insisted the child's name and sex were pre-existing information[3], twelve years later it still appears as if Erista, son of Wolverine, was first named in the 2004 OHOTMU: X-Men.
