In 1480 DR Manshoon compelled the disgraced suspected traitor Palace Understeward to flee the palace and put Corleth in the basement of the Srauner's shop polymorphed as a mind-wiped woman in order to use him as substitute body in time of need.
At last Elminster found Manshoon and accidentally destroyed Corleth's body in the battle.
