Exedore was a Zentraedi male character that was featured in the Robotech: The Macross Saga and was voiced by Ted Layman. He served as an adviser to Fleet Commander Breetai during their search for Zor's missing battlefortress, which he later found out was converted into the Super Dimension Fortress-1 Macross. He was very knowledgable about Zentraedi culture, and would later defect and aid the humans in battle. He was a valuable asset during the Pioneer Mission, where he served under Admiral Lisa Hayes. He was known as Exsedol in The Super Dimension Fortress Macross, the series which was adapted into the first "saga" of Robotech.
Exedore served as an advisor to Fleet Commander Breetai during their search for Zor's missing battlefortress. Although still a giant by Micronian standards, he is almost a dwarf when compared to even the average Zentraedi. Exedore is the keeper of Zentraedi law, lore and history as given to him by the Robotech Masters. It is he that reminds Breetai that one of their directives is to stay away from Micronian civilizations for fear of cultural contamination. Nonetheless, because the Earth humans have come in possession of Zor's ship, which later they found out was reclassificed as Super Dimension Fortress-1 Macross (SDF-1), Exedore has the hapless job of trying to outthink them which proves a difficult task considering the Terrans' inexperience in space warfare makes them nearly unpredictable.

During the First Robotech War, Exedore served as Commander Breetai's most trusted advisor. He was the most level headed of his crew, and would always err on the side of caution when dealing with the Micronians, who had managed to come into possession of Zor's Battlefortress.
Because of the constant battles with the Earth humans, numerous Zentraedi become enthralled by the culture of the Micronians and their lifestyle. To avoid widespread cultural contamination, Supreme Zentraedi commander Dolza orders the extermination of Breetai and Azonia's fleets. Anticipating this, Exedore has himself micronized and travels to SDF-1 as an emissary and proposes an alliance with Earth. His proposal is well received and Breetai and Azonia's fleets offer well needed assistance in Earth's defense against Dolza's Grand Fleet.
Exedore continued to serve as an advisor to the Robotech Defense Force in the reconstruction years following the successful defeat of Dolza's armada. In that time, he served aboard the captured Robotech Factory Satellite, as well as help conduct research on the origins of his species and its possible link with humanity. He was disappointed upon learning that he and his species were nothing but toys created by the Robotech Masters. Born and bred solely for war, and completely expendable. This disturbed Exedore to some degree, and he hoped to rectify his species sins by helping defeat his former Masters in any way possible.
He accompanied Rick Hunter, Lisa Hayes, Dr. Emil Lang, Thomas Riley Edwards, and the other Join-Chiefs (including a now micronized Breetai) aboard the Super Dimension Fortress-3 Pioneer (SDF-3) in the Robotech Expeditionary Force mission to the find his Master's homeworld.
- Exedore shared ample screen time in the failed pilot Robotech II: The Sentinels, and was part of Dr. Emil Lang's research team for the Pioneer Mission. In that series, he claimed that the Zentraedi were akin to mercenaries of the Robotech Masters. He played a much larger role in the Jason and John Waltrip comic adaptation of the series.
- Exedore's character design was slightly altered for Robotech II: The Sentinels to avoid infringing on the character designs of Haruhiko Mikimoto in the original series. Strangely enough, Exedore is given unusually large feet that he did not previously possess. His skin color is also lightened considerably. Coincidentally, in further Macross installments, the original character design for Exedol (Exedore's original Macross counterpart) would be retired in favor of his character design from the film Macross: Do You Remember Love. In Robotech novels, the change of appearance is attributed to cosmetic surgery to make him look more human to Micronians, the oversized feet being retconned in along with mention of other slight body deformities that were not apparent onscreen.
- Exedore is given the title of "Domillan" in the comics. This is the Zentradi term for his role as advisor.
- In the animated series, his voice was provided by Ted Layman, under the pseudonym Leonard Pike.
