Elteg is not met by anyone in the party of the Light. He is mentioned very briefly in the Queen of Sorcery that he has a black beard and only one eye. He is greedy and has quite a temper. At Tol Horb, Grinneg was paying him to meet Barak and Garion's party, but Greldik offered to come down instead since Barak and Elteg didn't get along very well. Barak speculated Grinneg offered a lot of money, but Greldik mentioned that Elteg had some trouble with his ship, namely that while Elteg and his crew were all drunk, some scoundrel slipped aboard his ship and chopped down his mast.

"What's the world coming to?" Barak asked, shaking his head.

"My thought exactly, "Greldik agreed.

"How did he take it?"

"Not very well, I'm afraid," Greldik said sadly. "When we rowed out of the harbor, he sounded as if he was inventing profanities on the spot. You could hear him for quite some distance."

"He should learn to control his temper. That's the king of behavior that gives Chereks a bad name in the ports of the world." -- Queen of Sorcery
