He first conspired with Dendybar the Mottled and other associates to have Morkai the Red, the Master of the North Tower of the Host Tower of the Arcane, murdered by his apprentice Akar Kessel on their command in 1351 DR.
Dendybar was nominated the new Master of the North Tower and Eldeluc rose in prominence. However, Eldeluc wanted more and, after many years of preparation and plotting, he and his fellow apprentice Valkebar assaulted Arklem in 1371 DR, nearly killing him and slaying Arklem's top lieutenant Queltar Thaeloon in the process. Barely alive, Arklem fled the Host Tower, which fell into the hands of Eldeluc and Valkebar and the Masters of the Four Towers pledged their loyalty to them.
However, Eldeluc soon lost control over the Host Tower and a short time later Arklem came back as a lich allied with Nyphithys the erinyes. With the help of devils, Arklem killed Eldeluc and Valkebar and regained control of the Arcane Brotherhood. However, three of the traitorous Masters of the Four Towers escaped and Eldeluc probably kept a hidden clone of himself.
