Laaqueel was a malenti born with a very unusual pink skin, resembling a surface elf rather than a sea elf. For this reason, the leader of her sahuagin colony, Baron Huaanton, decided not to train her as spy. Instead, Laaqueel joined the clergy of Sekolah under Senior Priestess Ghaataag.
While Laaqueel traveled on surface world, she discovered the legend of the One Who Swims with Sekolah. She devoted herself to finding the truth behind the legends, and finally in 1354 DR, she found Iakhovas in Chult.
She agreed to ally with Iakhovas and took him to her colony, where he infiltrated the colony as a normal sahuagin. Always with Laaqueel at his side, Iakhovas rose within the ranks of sahaugin society, even manipulating Huaanton. Laaqueel was considered Iakhovas' high priestess.
Laaqueel was a true believer in Sekolah. The Shark God granted her a place and a purpose. Laaqueel was always focused on her mission, and never killed anyone outside of it.
