Burnard (his coworkers call him Burney), is the Supervisor of Heat Waves.
(Burney was originally designed by me, but once @eclipticafusion joined the team, I had no choice but to have him redo the design!)
This hog comes off as fairly imposing to those who don’t know him, but he’s actually a bit of an odd ball. He’s very wise, and very knowledgeable of the workings of Tropolis.
Burney is very understanding and is surprisingly cheerful most of time, though, there are moments when it can be really hard to tell when he’s getting angry or if he’s just excited about something; he’s got a bad habit of getting louder and louder mid-conversation.
This attributes to the gossip of him being a rather dangerous fellow when he’s “heated up”.
Burney is capable of building complex engines and machines, such as how he built his domain in the form of a train.
He’s managed to automate a lot of the functions in his domain, with his workers mostly performing upkeep. This gives him a lot of free time to lounge about.

He’s is an avid book reader, his favorite genres being history, philosophy, psychology, and self-help books. He’s recently moved on to soap operas and dramas (leading to him sometimes crying to himself… his tears evaporating shortly after).
He also spends a LOT of time sunbathing.
While he prefers to avoid conflict, he’ll typically takes a defensive stance, able to redirect or absorb most attacks. Don’t let him cross over into a move offensive stance, as it could spell trouble for everyone.
