Adam seems to have gone with the Tolkien-literal dwarves in CoS (though he may object to that characterization), which is an interesting choice given the setting - it fits perfectly though. Every single time dwarves show up it spells trouble for Berg.

It's interesting how the girl ties into Sali's quest in respect to Berg and the history of the battle with the Stone King. Definitely an opportunity for Sali and Berg to take some time together - a relationship which, by a considerable margin, is the least-explored throughout this entire arc. Especially if Sali is going to persist in his covert investigation of the bracer and rod.
