** He also is antagonizing the party specifically so their powers will be strong enough for his plans.
** He also claims that he saved Vivi's life.


* AmbiguouslyEvil: Eldor, in spades. Although he apparently does have an evil plan (which has something to do with immortality, [[HiddenAgendaVillain we think]]), he appears to have virtually zero tension with regard to them, not even remotely being threatened by them. His plans are so odd and convoluted that he often winds up indirectly helping the group, for example, he got Lilith arrested and trapped in a tower, but was going to rescue them (only Lilith rescued herself, and they bumped up the time of execution). He also is antagonizing the party specifically so their powers will be strong enough for his plans. He also claims that he saved Vivi's life.

** Eldor is quite ruthless and stops at nothing to furhter his own plans, but his manners are generally polite and courteous, and he doesn't seem to derive any pleasure from making people suffer; it's just an unfortunate but necessary consequence of his plans.
