|―Elgar's final words before his death[src]|
Elgar was the dimwitted alien nephew of Divatox, the space pirate. He served Divatox and then Astronema, the Princess of Darkness. Elgar is also the grandson of Mama D and the nephew of General Havoc and Dimitria. Elgar possesses a saber made up of cards, and a Piranhatron whip. He is capable of projecting energy beams and teleportation. He had a cybernetic hand which was a punishment for him.
Elgar had served alongside Rygog and their foot soldiers, the Piranhatrons. He enjoyed looting and pillaging.
Elgar was in charge of capturing Lerigot, the Liarian wizard. After he failed, Elgar had to capture two Earthen humans of purity and strength to feed Maligore, a volcanic monster god on Muiranthias. He captured Bulk and Skull, and then Jason and Kim. After the humans had defected from Maligore's evil, he was knocked into the Pit of Eternal Flame by Divatox as a sacrifice to Maligore along with her Pet Eel.
Elgar managed to survive and returned to the side of Divatox. Divatox brought Elgar along, since she didn't want to leave him out of her sight for too long.
Elgar continued to work alongside his aunt, being a bother to her, Rygog, Porto, and the Rangers. Occasionally, Elgar would be sent to fight alongside a new monster that Divatox uses to fight the Rangers.
After the Rangers recruited T.J., Cassie, Ashley, Carlos, and then the Phantom Ranger, Elgar had took Porto's new Zord, the Terrorzord out for a test drive. While fighting the Rescue Megazord, Elgar was actually beating both the Rangers and the Blue Senturion in the Zord fight, until one of the arms fell, causing Elgar to retreat back to the Space Base. Elgar returned, with the Terrorzord fixed, and resumed fighting the Rangers. Unfortunately, one of Divatox's monsters, Goo, transformed the Terrorzord into a camel, with Elgar sitting on it.
Elgar and Rygog had witnessed the Rangers teleporting across the sky and followed them to their secret base, the Power Chamber. Informing Divatox of the location, Elgar successfully led the attack on the inside of the Chamber. He destroyed Zordon and Dimitria's Plasma Tube, which prevented the two beings from returning. Elgar planted explosive devices all over the Power Chamber's interior, which destroyed it, this time forever.
After Dark Specter's assembly on the Cimmerian Planet, Elgar was chosen to serve Astronema to guide her ventures on Earth and to make sure that he didn't mess up with Divatox's transporting Zordon around the universe to keep the Power Rangers from finding him. Though Astronema said she didn't want Elgar around, she kept him for custodial work on the Dark Fortress, like cleaning the control panels. For once, Astronema had let Elgar shoot down a NASADA satellite dish, that contained important discs that she wanted, onto the planet Kalderon. Once he finally retrieved the discs, the Space Rangers fought him for the discs. However, Astronema had the Rangers tied up to be sacrificed to Clawhammer. But the discs were stolen out of Elgar's vest by Andros, the telekinetic Red Ranger. As punishment for losing the discs, Astronema sent him to play with her monstrous alien pet, Scrudley.
During Dark Specter's universal conquest (Countdown to Destruction), Elgar was sent to Earth lead the Quantrons and Piranhatrons in Angel Grove, a job he did very well. When Dark Specter was killed by Darkonda, with Dark Specter killing him on his ninth and final life, Astronema became the new monarch of evil, as her image appeared above the United Alliance of Evil, all the forces of good and the citizens of Earth, with the UAE (except for Divatox) bowing/praying to her. When Elgar saw the Quantrons and Piranhatrons bowing/praying, he was puzzled and asked what they were doing until he saw Astronema's image, proudly joining them saying "All bow to Astronema." When Astronema gave the citizens of Angel Grove an ultimatum that the Power Rangers be brought to her by the next morning, or else Earth would be destroyed, Elgar said "Yeah! What She said, and she means it too!" to make sure they got the threat. Elgar remained there for the time being and was eventually confronted by five of the six Rangers, the one exception being Andros (who snuck aboard the Dark Fortress). Elgar lead the Quantrons and Piranhatrons in the fight against the five Rangers, with the five being joined by the people of Angel Grove, lead by Bulk and Skull. Elgar continued fighting until he was caught in Zordon's energy wave, which reduced him to mere sand, as were the Quantrons and Piranhatrons on Earth.
Elgar is considered an idiot in the eyes of his peers and this reputation is not entirely unwarranted as his bumbling decisions have costed the the space pirates victories such as when he wasted one of the Wicked Wisher's three wishes on a pompadour.
Though he is, surprisingly, a good pilot when it came to piloting the Terrorzord and a great leader in both the onslaught of the Power Chamber, and in the ultimate invasion of Earth. Elgar also has occassional flashes of intelligence such as when he prevented Divatox from revealing her identity to the Blue Senturion.
He is also loyal to his aunt Divatox and his new boss Astronema. Elgar is very fond of his aunt and believes, despite blatant evidence to the contrary, that "Auntie D", was likewise very fond of him. When Divatox lamanented her lack of family connections, Elgar attempted to comfort her by pointing she had her "favorite nephew" with her.
Powers and Abilities
to be added
Expert Pilot: For all his many vices, Elgar was a surprisingly competent pilot and was shown piloting the most vehicles out of Divatox's crew. While piloting the Terrorzord, he was easily able to keep the Robo Racer and the Rangers' own Megazord on their toes with a barrage of attacks; the only reason he didn't defeat them was due firstly to leaving without Porto securing the arm properly, and the second time thanks to Mr. Goorific accidentally turning the Terrorzord into a camel. He was also seen piloting a Velocifighter, attempting to destroy a NASADA satellite; though he didn't destroy it, he did manage to cause it to fall into a nearby planet's atmosphere.

Behind the Scenes

- Elgar's appearance changes depending on which footage is used. US footage shows Elgar as a little goofy looking, while Sentai footage shows a more evil face. This parallels the difference between Zelmonda and Elgar's personalities; Elgar's running gag of ruining his aunt's plans Divatox makes him look comically idiotic, while Zelmonda's ruthlessness was emphasized. For one scene in Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie, when Adam and Elgar fight briefly, the original Zelmonda mask is used instead of the American one. Whether or not this was an error remains to be seen.
- He is unable to read, and claims to not be able to swim. However, Divatox has ejected him from the subcraft numerous times and he swam. Similarly he has read the lettering off a milk carton.
