Erwin Lawson is the 5th grade school bully, and the archenemy of the Recess Gang, most notably to TJ and Vince.
His personality is akin to a bully jock. He is mean, rude, and competitive, and he is athletic, not to mention obnoxious and at times, ruthless. His blatant unoriginality has been seen on more than one occasion, and he does not seem to know much other than sports.
He wears a light blue short-sleeved shirt with two red and one white stripes, blue jeans, black and white sneakers, and a blue baseball cap worn with the visor in front over his brown hair. He is of medium height, lanky, and has a light pattern of freckles on his face.
He usually plays against T.J. and Vince in sports such as kickball, dodgeball, baseball, soccer and other sports.
His minions are his five closest friends Cheay, Jocko, Chucko Kowalski, Buster, and Koreo.
