Elidibus is the secondary antagonist of Final Fantasy XIV's Hydalyn Saga. He is one of the last surviving Unsundered Ascians, alongside Lahabrea, and Emet-Selch, and one of the overlords of the Convocation of Fourteen, serving as their Emissary of their "one true god" Zodiark, he was sacrificed during Zodiark's Summoning to become His Heart. After the sacrifices, Elidibus separated himself from the primal in order to mediate agreement within the convocation on the proper course to pursue.
Elidibus in the modern era focuses on balance and seems to oversee the actions of his Sundered colleagues. However, his memory rapidly degrades, and by the events of 5.3, he has lost much of his past and himself, only the most precious and fundamental memories remaining.
He is the unseen overarching antagonist of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, one of the primary antagonists of Seventh Astral Era storyline, a major antagonist in Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, and the Post-Stormblood Main Scenario, and the main antagonist of the Post-Shadowbringers Main Scenario.
Elidibus is polite and diplomatic, attempting to meet Minfilia Warde and the Warrior of Light on peaceful terms. This seems to be at odds with the other Ascians, who are cold at best toward the Scions of the Seventh Dawn. Elidibus deviates from the methods of his black-robed brethren, and is not close or loyal to them, and states to Emperor Varis that he would not act against him should Varis use the Garlean Empire against the Ascians. Elidibus is nonetheless a dangerous and cunning foe to the Warrior of Light and the Scions. Even when his plans do not go accordingly, Elidibus is foresighted and intelligent enough to gain an advantage. According to Emet-Selch, while Elidibus may be a "worrier" and an "insufferable bore", he is no fool and the choices he makes are rarely wrong. Elidibus is subtle in the pursuit of his goals, being a master of manipulation and in using half-truths to convince others the righteousness of the Ascians' cause. He possesses the typical Ascian overconfidence when appearing to have the advantage, as after gaining the body of Zenos, he mistakenly believes he can easily defeat the Warrior of Light. Likewise, Elidibus fails to foresee Zenos's return or stop him from reclaiming his body, forcing the Emissary into fleeing.
