Eldrad Ulthran is a male extraterrestrial character that features in Warhammer 40,000.
Eldrad Ulthran was the mightiest and most ancient of the Farseers of the Eldar Craftworld of Ulthwé. Among Eldrad's accomplishments are supposedly: igniting the Second War for Armageddon so as to spare the lives of ten thousand Eldar, igniting the Sanapan Scouring, the Mortis Annihilation and the Third Coming of Orian, as well as warning the Emperor of Horus's treachery and warning the Eldar of Iyanden of the coming of the Tyranids. The veracity of these accomplishments are often debated, as they are usually derived from work by Inquisitor Czevak (which he himself admits strays into the realm of paranoia) and the rantings of a tortured Eldar Ranger. It should also be noted that, of these battles, only the Second War for Armageddon is ever described in detail.
Eldrad is thought to have perished during the Eye of Terror campaign, when he was caught upon a Blackstone Fortress, or Talisman of Vaul, that he was trying to stop from destroying the vitally important Imperial world of Cadia - which was covered in ancient monoliths that calmed the raging warp storms of the Eye of Terror and (presumably) kept them from spreading. As he attempted to commune with and stop the corrupted spirit of the Fortress, the Farseer learned no random power had corrupted the machine; the deed had been done by Slaanesh itself. In vain, Eldrad tried to disengage. His soul was dragged screaming into the dark core of the fortress.
