Teledji Adeledji is a male plainsfolk Lalafell with graying hair and tan skin. Like many members of the Syndicate, he is lavishly dressed—donning himself in green and red robes and adorned with gold jewelry. He wears a blue noble's hat, and his short mustache and beard are trimmed to an unusual, angular style.
Teledji Adeleji is scheming, greedy, arrogant, power-hungry and self-serving, doing whatever he can to increase his wealth and power within the Syndicate, caring little of the consequences his machinations may have on Ul'dah or its allies.
Teledji has little to no respect for the monarchy, especially Sultana Nanamo, who while young and naive, proved difficult for him to control. Thus he believed her unable to properly defend the nation and conspired to be rid of her. Teledji was willing to seize the Allagan superweapon, Omega, and poison Nanamo to achieve complete control over Ul'dah.
When it appeared Teledji had the upper-hand his arrogance in making outlandish accusations towards the Warrior of Light and the Scions of the Seventh Dawn, and his insults towards the sultana in front of a grieving Raubahn, would be his fatal mistake. Thinking himself untouchable, he mocked the Sultana while acknowledging his ill-opinions towards her, which enraged Raubahn into killing him.
Teledji Adeleji comes into prominence in "Through the Maelstrom," where he endorses Yugiri's request for asylum on behalf of the Doman refugees. His proposal is opposed by Lord Lolorito, who cites difficulties with Ala Mhigan refugees as reason to turn the Domans away, swaying the remaining Syndicate members into opposing the resolution. He later sits in the empty Syndicate chambers when an aide walks up to him and informs him he carried out his orders. When he inquires as to what these plans are, Teledji replies "Revolution."
In "Defenders of Eorzea," it is revealed by General Raubahn that Teledji had incited the recent riots among the refugee population through an arms dealer (that was conveniently assassinated in front of the Warrior of Light). Raubahn suggested this was a ploy to get the Carteneau Reclamation Bill passed, which would resettle refugees in the Carteneau Flats. Raubahn and Nanamo believe Teledji's true goal is to get his hands on the "Omega" device buried in the Flats.
During the events of "Before the Fall," Teledji orchestrates an attempt on the Sultana by having her wine poisoned and framing the Warrior of Light and the Scions of regicide. Teledji is killed by an enraged Raubahn after gloating over Nanamo's assumed death. In Heavensward it is revealed that Lolorito learned of Teledji's scheme and allowed it to occur in the hopes that Teledji and Raubahn kill each other during the resulting chaos while he substituted the poison with a weaker, coma-inducing substance.
Teledji appears in Palace of the Dead as an enemy known as "Mortifying Magnate".
Teledji is voiced by Taketora in the Japanese version.
