Eldred was a human on the Lord Protector's Planet in the Pegasus galaxy. Eldred was aware of the Lord Protector's watchful presence, and appeared to be scared with his previous assaults, using Drone weapons on the villages to demonstrate his rule.
Eldred and his wife Petra took Dr. Rodney McKay, Teyla Emmagan and Ronon Dex in for an evening meal during the time Lt. Colonel John Sheppard's team spent with them. He prayed to the Ancestors for goodness to be bestowed to the Lord Protector.
When Ronon killed four of the Lord Protector's Guard, he feared the worst. But Petra encouraged the villagers to come together and fight against the Protector's rule, as it was apparent he had launched a fleet of drones to destroy the village for Ronon's insolence. But before the drones could harm anyone they ran out of energy and fell from the sky. (SGA: "The Tower")
