Larak Dardulkyn was considered the most powerful independent wizard in Suzail. He was also the richest, acquiring his wealth by working as a freelance mage for noble houses.
During King Foril's Dragon Council in 1479 DR, the young noble Arclath Delcastle went to Larak's mansion and attempted to hire him to find the noble who controlled the blueflame ghosts. Instead, Larak imprisoned Arclath. When Elminster, Storm Silverhand, and Mirt came to Arclath's rescue, Elminster's spirit possessed Arclath and cast spells that destroyed most of Larak's mansion.
After Larak's home was reduced to a smoking ruin, Manshoon dominated Larak's mind and moved his beholders to the mansion's basement.
