What is a gnome like?  What do gnomes do?

Gnomes are very gentle beings, and like to ensure that all living creatures remain unharmed. They carry knives with them in order to rescue animals from traps and remove splinters from paws, so that no creature has to live in pain. Their knives also come in handy when animals that cannot fend for themselves need help getting food. Some gnome guides carry journals so they can map out their travels and make notes about their journeys, especially recording points that may be of interest to other gnomes in the future.

Another charming fact about our gnomes: They are known to plant wildflowers wherever they go. So the next time you see a wildflower, go ahead and wonder “Did a gnome plant this here?”
