EthosLab, known for short as Etho, is an active Hermit who joined in Season 3. He is has been active in all the seasons since he joined, except Season 6. He is part of the NHO with Docm77, BdoubleO100, and VintageBeef. He and VintageBeef are also members of Team Canada with PauseUnpause, a non-Hermit. He currently has 2,220,000 subscribers.[1]

Season 3

EthosLab uploaded his first video on the Hermitcraft server on the 3rd of March 2015 where he was toured around the server by Biffa2001. In Episode 3, EthosLab participated in the Boom Box competition made by TangoTek alongside ImpulseSV, XisumaVoid, FalseSymmetry, Sl1pg8r and Zueljin.

EthosLab made a medieval style underground base during the Season, which at one point was pranked by the TEA Agency, made up of XisumaVoid and Biffa2001.

EthosLab uploaded his final episode on 29 September 2015 where he competed in a round of ABBA Caving against Zueljin.

Season 4

EthosLab made his return to the Hermitcraft server when Season 4 started in February 2016. He teamed up with friend and fellow former Mindcracker Docm77, and together they built the Danglands - a mingame district made up games such as Whack-A-Mole, Boat Racing, The Fat Princess and Connect 4. Due to the Time Zone difference between Germany and Canada, where Doc and EthosLab live respectively, the duo struggled to find good times to record and as a result didn't post many videos together. EthosLab would upload his final video in Season 4 on 21 September 2016, where he welcomed another Mindcracker, VintageBeef, to the server.

Season 5

EthosLab returned to the Hermitcraft server when Season 5 started in April 2017. For this Season, EthosLab teamed up with BdoubleO100, Docm77 and VintageBeef to form the NHO (New Hermit Order). The group formed due to them all being friends and previously playing on the Mindcrack server. Together they ventured through the Nether and connected to a jungle far away from spawn dubbed the "NHO Jungle". EthosLab would go on to create his Nexus - a giant redstone sorting system in the jungle. He also teamed up with the other members of the NHO to prank MumboJumbo's base, where they covered it with NHO propaganda. EthosLab would upload his final episode on the 15th July 2017. This is EthosLab's shortest Hermitcraft season to date.

Season 7

EthosLab's base is located in the Jungle on the western side of the known map. His closest neighbor is XisumaVoid.

EthosLab has two shops in the shopping district. His first store is the Ice Shop, which is located near the Boomers' storefront. It has the Canadian custom of removing one's shoes before entering. His second store is Shade-E-E's, a "subscription service". He held a grand opening drawing of a lifetime supply of free glass, but it was a prank, filling up the empty spaces in their chests with light gray stained glass panes renamed "Congratulations on your FREE glass! xD". He then charged a diamond block to unsubscribe. Now he is offering gardening services, which entail a dirt square with various flowers making an EthosLab head pixel art. This "gardening service", however, also brought a few hives of bees with it, filling the hermits bases with hidden beehives that made a constant, annoying buzz. As a result, Shade-E-E's now also charges for a pest relocation service. Shade-E-E's also offers a service in which a Hermit can receive 3 diamonds to sign up another Hermit. He is also currently working on the Gaming District with TangoTek. More recently, EthosLab has opened a hidden shop, "Sneak-E-E's", which is completely made of shulker boxes so it has a smaller render distance. EthosLab did this in retaliation of the new road access passes put out by GoodTimesWithScar. In Sneak-E-Es, EthosLab sells assorted goodies, but once the shop is sold out it will be moved so that GoodTimesWithScar cannot tax it. The position of Sneak-E-Es was directly above Iskall85's Slime Shop. It has since been moved to another location.
