    If you keep the Helmet of Opposite Alignment till ToB, you will have the option of forcing it onto the head of the solar and then she will help you slay Ao and take over his job instead.

    ... but if you force the helm onto Korgan's head in ToB instead, he'll get so confused that he just stands there instead of offering to join the party. Some things are just not meant to be.

    Wouldn't an item like the kneecapper be affected?

    It tests for the type "giant humanoid", which he is. Race doesn't come into it.

    Yaga-Shura isn't really a giant. He's actually a space dwarf that somehow came to Toril. The giantish looks are just a result of the rituals he performed under his so-called mother's tutelage, in order to fit in on this world.
    In the game files, Yaga-Shura inexplicably has the race "dwarf". That fact inspired this bit. Since it's not possible to take either "dwarf" or "giant" as a racial enemy, I'm pretty sure this has no gameplay impact whatsoever.

    actually it does have some game play implications because being a dwarf is way more disadvantageous than being a giant because that means yaga shura is now susceptible to the level 1 mage spell charm person or perhaps even the level 2 druid spell charm animal/person

    neat

    in fact, that also means that hold person would work on him as well, wowzers, talk about a big disadvantage

    Nope. Those spells test for type "Humanoid", which he isn't. Again, they're not actually checking the race.

    Does that mean Yaga Shura gets shorty bonus? Now isn't that a funny thought...

    Yaga-Shura has the save array standard for a level 17+ non-shorty fighter, so no - as long as you're playing the game normally. If you brought him into the party and leveled him up, he would get the shorty bonus then.

    Actually all of this was part of Elminster's plan.

    He foresaw the coming of the Bhaalspawn and knew of the battle that was to unfold between Gorion and Sarevok. He could have intervened but instead he decided that it needed to play out.

    Instead, he arranged to have Jaheira and Khalid be sent by the Harpers to assess the situation Nashkel.

    He gave Firebead the book about the Dead Three with the hopes he'd find some excuse to give it to charname eventually.

    He warned Gorion via his letter.

    And he booked a few (foreseen) days off at work in advance so he could pop in from time to time as needed.
