Akhlaur was only interested in increasing his power by researching dangerous magic. He eventually summoned a laraken that was beyond his control and he was taken against his will back to the creature's native plane.
Akhlaur's disappearance left a permanent gateway open to the Elemental Plane of Water, causing an unending flow of water to pour forth into the area known as Akhlaur's Swamp. Akhlaur's Tower, which contained a wealth of magic items, was also found here.
This powerful conjurer was rumored to own magical items that most wizards only dreamed about, leading to a steady supply of adventurers delving deep into Akhlaur's Swamp with hopes of finding priceless treasure.
Aklhaur was rescued in 1373 DR thanks to the efforts of the wild elf magehound Kiva and the sorceress Tzigone. After being released from the portal, Aklhaur launch an attack agaisnt Halruaa, triggering the Wizardwar. During the battle, Aklhaur faced Zalathorm, and both killed each other.
