For a long time, the term "dwarf wizard" was an oxymoron. In the original Dungeons & Dragons set dwarves could only be fighters and could not progress beyond 6th level. It wasn't until much later editions of Dungeons & Dragons that dwarves could be anything other than fighters. Which is weird, if you think about it, given that dwarves are bearded, grumpy fellows reminiscent of Gandalf.
Sculptor Jason Wiebe agrees. Khaele has a wolf-headed staff in one hand, a smoking pipe in the other, and wears the traditional wizard's garb of big floppy hat and robes. Just so it's clear that he's not some wimpy wizard, Stonekindle has a huge sword strapped across his back. Although dwarf wizards are rare, Stonekindle fits the bill.
