Melineth Turcassan was the father-in-law of King Duar Obarskyr of Cormyr.
When Duar took an army north to battle the
orc invaders in the King's Forest, Melineth sold the city of Suzail to pirates for 500 sacks of gold.
After fleeing from
Cormyr, it was unknown what happened to him. Eventually he died and was interred underneath a buckeye tree where he became the fourth Ghazneth.
Melineth Turcasson was King
Ghazneth, Melineth had the power of decay. He was able to cause extreme decay with a single touch, causing muscle to melt away, and instantly causing living matter to decay to the point of death.
