Lore[edit | edit source]

This backstreet leper gnome appears to have been recruited by the Kabal. The Kabal's magic appears to have empowered this gnome far beyond its normal stats, and may even have managed to cure the gnome's affliction, although its title suggests otherwise. Fittingly, its summoning quote is a twist on the Leper Gnome's summoning quote, "I feel icky!".

The gnome also seems to have been armed by his new allies, with his Deathrattle seeing him throwing a Volcanic Potion (or similar Kabal concoction) at the enemy hero. While normally an indiscriminate AoE effect, apparently the Backstreet Leper is capable of more precise targeting, throwing it directly at the opponent rather than into the main battlefield.
