Boddyknock Glinckle is a male gnome sorcerer from Lantan, an island nation of mechanical wonders whom the hero of the original campaign encounters. Like most Lantanese gnomes, he is committed to a logical, scientific approach to his thoughts, and this cautious nature overshadows even the raw power granted by his sorcerous abilities. He is slightly obsessive with anything he does. Unlike the other companions in the first Neverwinter Nights game he does not appear in the Hordes of the Underdark expansion.
In the first three acts of the original campaign, Boddyknock has three sidequests, the latter two of which are only available if the player has completed the earlier quests.
