"What have I got in my pocket?"
- One of Burglar's enigmatic riddles

Burglar (), also known as Traveler[1], is Goblin Slayer's master and mentor.


Burglar is an old man that has uneven teeth, 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.

He dons a scarf with an intricate pattern over a cloak that resembles a mino.


Burglar acts in a demented and cruel manner, subjecting a young Goblin Slayer to brutal training not unlike torture. 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 helped Goblin Slayer all without anything in return, demonstrating a capacity for sympathy and kindness.


Burglar first encountered Goblin Slayer after saving the young boy from being killed by the goblins that destroyed his village. He later trained Goblin Slayer up until they parted ways five years later.
