Aha! A new Shale reference. Much more represenative of my current art style and making him a proper noodle doofus.
Shale is a Slatepaw, a bio-engineered creature...not that Shale knows that. Instead he is in a vague leadership role for his warren, brokering deals and using his sneaky rogue skills in an adventerer context.
His class focus would be best described as spell thief, he is very sneaky and deals with magic very well.
