Burner is an enemy feature in The House of the Dead. From his appearance, the being seems to have it's skin burned or flayed by a fiery element that might have cause it. The Blowtorch he carries as a weapon seems to be the cause of his skinless body. He wears a knight-like muzzle on his mouth but has no purpose in protecting his head.
His movement and attacks are very similar to the chainsaw-wielding Samson, moving menacingly towards his opponents with his blowtorch. Though with the same resilience, Burner is somewhat easier to deal with compared to Samson, as he lumbers relatively slowly instead of charging head on.
