[T]he Burnt Man, rose to summon his pack of the burning damned so that they might hunt down one more to join their number, while the fratricide's blood trail was still fresh.

The Burnt Man is the elemental personification of fire in the Four. He has the form of a burning man, turned to embers.

The Four were all humans who died at the time when the Kencyr temples activated in Rathillien. The Burnt Man presumably burned to death, although his exact story isn't known.

In Merikit religion, he is the avenger of the slain, especially kin-slayers.[1][2] He is generally accompanied by his hounds, the Burning Ones.


  1. Dark of the Moon, "Chapter 2: The Hell Hunt" — " 'Come, Burnt Man. Come, Burning Ones, […] We mark him and cast him out, now hunt, hunt…' […] 'The Merikit have driven out a kin-killer—probably a parricide—and called the damned down out of the hills to claim him, if he doesn't outrun them to the border.' "
  2. Seeker's Mask, "Part III: The Riverland", V — "Kin-slayers were his special prey, […] She remembered the story of a Merikit fratricide who had been pulled through a campfire into the ground beneath."
