Erit was an Andorian Starfleet medical officer and friend of Julian Bashir. They attended Starfleet Medical Academy together.

Elizabeth Lense mistakenly believed Bashir was Andorian after someone incorrectly pointed out Erit as Bashir to her at a New Year's Eve party hosted by Bruce Lucier. She did not learn the truth until she met Bashir on Deep Space 9 in 2371. (DS9: "Explorers")

This character was only mentioned in dialogue.
The Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 250) dated the New Year's Eve party to 2368.
Erit's full Andorian name (as per the naming conventions established in the novels set after "What You Leave Behind") is given as Shelerib th'Zarath (β) in Avatar, Book One.
