Given that WotC now has capstone monsters of each monster category in the 2025 Monster Manual (a good idea!), I'm surprised that they haven't yet given us iconic villains of each type. I wouldn't be surprised to see a 5E counterpart to 3E's Elder Evils with something of the sort.

Yes Tam was subordinate to Larloch in the past, but he’s independent now and a much more active threat. Like the Sauron to his Morgoth.
They have an ongoing deal where Tam continues to bring Larloch magic items in return for Larloch teaching Tam ancient spells. It's coincidentally part of Larloch's deal with Mystra to retain his ancient spells as long as he agrees to share his arcane knowledge now and then.
