Kenshi Wiki

Well, you see, if you're a raider or a bandit, I'll have to kill you before you destroy me first and take my tower. The spider bots keep most trespassers away, but now and then a couple of unwelcome ones seep through, understand?... So which is it?


Burn is a Skeleton Unique Recruit. He is an old skeleton in which you can recruit, he talks about that he was an adventurer but decided to stop due to old age, found in his Tower in the Floodlands.

Just one last adventure...

Burn is one of the easiest Skeletons to recruit early in the game. He has only two unique dialogue lines and uses the Skeleton dialogue package instead of a unique one.

Note: Burn stands outside of the tower meaning that he can get into conflict with other locals resulting in his death.

They wear [Shoddy] armour (5% chance of [Standard]) and have weapons manufactured by Unknown.

  • There is a dialogue branch where Burn does not check the race of who he is speaking to and can state "Skeletons aren't as perishable as Skeletons like yourself, but we still have a limit to our existence."
