"Foulpoison has taken Timothy (Weaponsmith) as a hostage.
Go rescue her."
Timmy is a girl's name?
Also, Timmy bit the dust when a dozen barrels "accidentally" caught fire next to (him) her. Foulpoison continued hovering there. Could not target it directly, but area attacks (fire and ice traps) did kill it. (It never moved away from the spot.) I don't think I got any exp or item drops, though.
