British - A monk. As a boy, he played truant from school and hid in the woods. He found a route to the underground world of the dwarfs. Passing through a narrow passage, he found himself in a land of miniature mortals and returned to visit them often. He played ball with the son of the king, using golden balls which might have been the golden apples of the gods. When he stole some of their gold they took it from him and he was never again able to find the way to their realm. Also commonly identified as Elidor, Elidurus, Elidurus, Eliduros or Eliduros.
