Burr is the riekling assistant of Landal Gevont, and is not accustomed to human cultures or manners. In his youth, Burr ate his own mother. Landal found him half-dead in the snow while observing the local Goblin population and nursed him back to health.

Though constantly making questionable choices about food to eat (particularly rats), Burr shows many signs of intelligence, being able to cook, write, and displays curiosity about various topics. He is concerned that Landal is trying to "fatten him up" by feeding him. After finding the Wrathstone at the end of the Frostvault, Burr is spooked by the ruins, and Landal notes that Burr is the "only one of us with any sense."
