The gnoll miner is about three feet tall and vaguely man-like. Gnolls in general have a dwarven or gnomish appearance, but are markedly different in a way that can't quite be pin-pointed. This particular gnoll is part of the working class with well-muscled arms and callused hands. There is little doubt that the gnoll would be a formidable opponent if the need should arise, or if backed into a corner.

Gnoll miners carry mining picks which are modified handaxes.
The miners also gather rainbow crystals at the crystal mine in Cavernhold and carry them to a bin at the base of a crystal spire. The spire is located in a wooden dome along Imaera's Path in the Alpine Meadow area near Zeltoph. It is rumored that these crystals are part of a large quest involving a shadowy dragon, wisps and wasps' nests.
The gnoll miner carefully removes some rainbow crystals from his shoulder pack and meticulously dusts them off before carefully placing them in the bin.
A gnoll miner gazes up, eyes closed, and mutters a few quiet words of prayer before heading out.
