Introduced in the Planescape setting of AD&D 2nd edition and D&D 3rd edition, Eladrin were described as a type of celestial of chaotic good alignment and hailed from the plane of Arborea. In D&D 4th edition, eladrin are instead a race of fey beings, closely akin to elves.
In DDO eladrin are not a race at all. They are broken up into three categories: Bralani Eladrin race and Ghaele Eladrin race are Good Outsiders, while Feywild Eladrin sub-race are (weirdly) typed as Elves, although they use many of the characteristics of Fey type monsters.
