|“||What have I got in my pocket?||”|
— One of Burglar's enigmatic riddles
Burglar is an old rhea with uneven teeth and milky eyes, though this is most likely due to his advanced age. He bears a goat patch and few strands of hair, with three on the sides of his cheeks like whiskers. Like all rheas, he has the racial trait of short height and pointed ears. He dons a scarf with an intricate pattern over a straw cape.
Burglar acts in a demented and cruel manner, as shown when subjecting a young Goblin Slayer to brutal and harsh training.
Despite his superficial lack of sanity, he rescued the young boy and spent years training Goblin Slayer's mind and body in order to become strong enough to kill goblins on his own. His misconducts aside, Burglar had trained Goblin Slayer without anything in return, demonstrating a capacity for sympathy and kindness.
Burglar first encountered Goblin Slayer after saving the 10-year-old boy from being killed by the goblins that destroyed his village. He later trained Goblin Slayer up until they parted ways five years later.
In a flashback Goblin Slayer had, Burglar trained him in a dark cave, while also telling him riddles to solve. After his pupil solved several, Burglar questioned him what he had in his pocket, which his pupil was unable to solve.
At some point, the old rhea informed Goblin Slayer he was going on a journey before leaving.
Burglar shows up in front of the farm as Cow Girl was doing laundry. He correctly guesses that Goblin Slayer lived here while referring to him as a talentless wonder only capable of taking everything too seriously. After Cow Girl sharply corrects him, Burglar suddenly brings up that an old magician once said the little things matter more than big adventures and a dwarf said that a beauty she was unaware about was inside her. He then bids Cow Girl farewell before disappearing with the wind.
Burglar is a skilled and crafty fighter, relying on any method he can to defeat his enemies and achieve victory.
