Burton grew up in a working class side of Smithson, Aacia on Phayon
. During his childhood he developed a very strong love of animals. Many of his teenage jobs involved working on farms, feed plants, various zoos anything related to animals.
Burton graduated with honors from Aacia College in culinary science, livestock nutritionist, animal welfare, and has a Ph.D. in Veterinary Surgery, Neurology, bio-Mechanical Engineering, and a masters in Electronics. Despite his high credentials, he landed a job at a large animal feed manufacturing plant developing and improving feeds for various industries.
On one normal operating day while Burton and his assistant Lewie Da'ann, the plant experienced a catastrophic explosion that sent white hot shards of iron, and items through much of the plant killing 27 people and seriously mutilating 80 others. Burton experienced severe lacerations and burns to most of his body and has lost an eye and is 80% blind in the other.
It is believed that a competing plant planted a bomb and detonated it though nobody has claimed responsibility for the blast. Burton is now horribly disfigured and as a result he and most of the survivors formed a Resistance Faction called "Dawg Pound" and are now fighting against the corporations who practice shady inside trading, sabotage including "corporate mischief".
