The Crackpot is a Gnarling who has forfeited its sword skills for a life of playing with (rather volatile) chemicals. They will happily brew potions for you in the Alchemy Lab to rain on your enemies' heads. They keep their own supply of potions about them at all times, and it is this that they will use to defend themselves if attacked.
