Eddore was the Green Lantern of Tront, a world of gaseous life forms. He was a friend of Abin Sur, and met Abin's successor, Hal Jordan of Earth, during the war against Krona and Nekron.
[Tales of the Green Lantern Corps #1-3]
Eddore participated in many adventures with the Corps. He served as part of the invasion of Qward to destroy the Anti-Green Lantern Corps. Eddore was part of a "psychodrama" designed to test Hal Jordan's capabilities as a Green Lantern.
[Green Lantern Vol. 2 #150, 159-160, 163, 165-169]
During the so-called Crisis on Infinite Earths, Eddore had been assigned by the Guardians to work with Salakk of Slyggia, in neighboring Sector 1418. In the destruction caused by the universal crisis, Eddore was killed.
[Green Lantern Vol. 2 #197]
Eddore is memorialized in the Crypts of the Green Lantern Corps on Oa.

Like Arisia, Eddore was named after a planet in E.E. "Doc" Smith's LENSMEN series of novels. The Eddorians were rather amorphous amoeboids, but unlike the kindly Green Lantern Eddore of Tront, "Doc" Smith's Eddorians were evil. Thanks to Cubist for the information, I haven't read the books... yet.
