Eldron is the male leader of the Twin Mothers tribe. It is his duty to oversee the growing and harvesting of crops, caring for the livestock, and the preparation of food for the village. He is very meticulous in his work and keeps detailed records of yearly harvests by which he judges what the future needs of the tribe will be.
Eldron is a follower of the goddess Diana, but has some reservations. He believes that Diana is a benign power, and that she wants what is best for her people. However, she imposes limits on the tribe that he feels may ultimately harm them. Specifically, he opposes the pacifistic guidelines that the goddess demands. He feels that the recent incursion of the raiders, and the failure of the goddess's servants to deal with them, justify new tribal laws. Unfortunately, he cannot sway Alaya to his views.
