These creatures look like small, male dwarfs, sitting on top of a small cloud and wielding a warhammer. The cloud is actually a part of a thunder dwarf's body.
Thunder dwarfs speak Auran.

Combat
Thunder dwarfs love to kill and destroy. They like to attack when they're surrounded with clouds, and are especially fond of thunderclouds.
Lightning Strike (Su): Five times per day, a thunder dwarf can strike its cloud with its warhammer, unleashing a lightning bolt. This is a standard action that provokes attacks of opportunity. The bolt has a range of 50 ft., but is further similar to a Lightning Bolt (DC 14, caster level 5th). The DC is Constitution-based and includes a +1 racial modifier.
The thunder dwarf can only hit the cloud from above, and so the bolt always comes from the bottom of the cloud, with a maximum angle of 45 degrees.
Rain (Ex): A thunder dwarf can let it rain from its cloud as a free action.
Skills: *A thunder dwarf receives a +4 racial bonus to Hide checks when hiding in clouds.
