The ninth studio album released on November 10, 1981. The Elder last album to feature the spaceman until their 1996 reunion. The basic plot of "The Elder" involves the recruitment and training of a young hero (The Boy) by the Council of Elders who belong to the Order of the Rose, a mysterious group dedicated to combating evil. The spaceman's stage costume included a lightning bolt design. Here's my rendition of that costume.
