Akhlaur was a powerful conjurer who lived in Halruaa during the mid–12th century DR.[1]


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.[1]

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.[1]


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.[1]
