Erica is known to be very manipulative and gets things to go the way she wants them to be, even going to the extremes of betraying her friends. She loves shopping and going to the mall.
Erica and Aubrey were neighbors before Aubrey moved to Odyssey. When Erica moved to Odyssey, her father, Kevin Colburn, got a job working for Novacom. Aubrey is wowed at seeing Erica's house and the way she has a seemingly endless money supply. Erica tries to persuade Aubrey to do things like skip classes to go shopping. Once, she got Aubrey in trouble by making her drive a car without a license; as a result, Aubrey got caught by the police. Later in the Nocacom series, she accidentally pushes an intercom button to talk to her father. She finds out that Mr. Charles is demanding her father get the Imagination Station in one week. Erica decides it will be her mission to get information for her father. Erica wants to use Aubrey to get to the Imagination Station. Nick is there and immediately likes Erica. Aubrey cautions Nick about Erica, but Nick agrees to show Erica the Imagination Station later that night "to help her with a history project." That evening, Erica finds that her dad doesn't want her help with the project. He tells her to stay out of it, but instead of listening to her father, Erica goes back to Whit's End, where Nick shows her the Imagination Station and the secret tunnel entrance to the shop. Erica takes this information to Mr. Charles and makes a deal — she'll help him get the Imagination Station if her dad can keep his job. Another aspect of the deal is that Mr. Charles doesn't tell Erica's father that she helped them. Charles agrees. Erica arrives and asks to talk to Aubrey in a quiet place. Before Aubrey knows it, the two of them end up locked in the library! When Whit returns, he frees the girls, and Erica leaves abruptly. Whit looks around the shop, only to find the Imagination Station has been stolen from the basement! Charles tells Kevin Colburn that they got the Imagination Station and they didn't need his help and that Erica had helped them. Kevin returns home to tell his daughter that he was fired and they have to leave town immediately, so Erica's plan ended in failure.
