In the Year of the Whelm, 1290 DR, when Sharndrel was still young, he and two other dragons were each individually summoned by Ithtaerus Casalia to Dragonspear Castle. The mage created a convoluted plan that involved them killing the defenseless copper dragon Halatathlaer so that he could claim its hoard.
When the dragons arrived, they fought one another and only Sharndrel survived. When he reached Halatathlaer's hoard he saw that Ithtaerus had taken a great share of it and only a small collection of coins remained. Incensed he went to the top of Dragonspear Castle and in effect disintegrated Ithtaerus with his acidic breath.
