Zanner Toobin was a rock gnome foundry worker who lived in the city of Baldur's Gate in the late 15th century DR. He was a member of the Church of Gond.[1]


Both of his eyes had been cut out by Banites while working at the Steel Watch Foundry, leaving him blind. An arcane collar was placed around his neck to ensure obedience while he worked at the foundry. He wore a green blindfold.[1]


Zanner possessed the ability to cast the cantrip shocking grasp as well as the spells aid, blur, and misty step. He could also cast enlarge on himself only.[1]


Zanner wore the winkling gloves, a pair of magical gloves that improved the wearer's attack accuracy and manual dexterity.[1]


Gondians! Rip the Motivator from this bastard's hands. FOR GOND!
— Zanner inspiring his fellow Gondians to revolt[1]

In the Year of Three Ships Sailing, 1492 DR, Zanner, along with his fellow Gondians, worked at the Steel Watch Foundry in Baldur's Gate against their will. Using magic items called motivators and with the threat of Gondian hostages being kept in the Iron Throne headquarters, the guards of the foundry were able to maintain control over the workers.[1]

If Zanner found out that the hostages had been freed, he was ready to lead an uprising against the foundry's guards.[1]
