Burlok Damminson is the Guildmaster of the Dwarven Engineers Guild.
Like all true Dwarven engineers, Burlok is a strong traditionalist when it comes to his work, believing firmly in the tried and true methods of production. Though now discouraging innovation, in his younger days Burlok eschewed the Guild's traditionalism and together with his friend Sven Hasselfriesian, secretly engaged in all kinds of technological experiments. Eventually his days as a technical innovator ended with an accidental pressure vessel explosion which blew off Burlok's arm. This turned Burlok around and he began to become more of a traditionalist. Sven meanwhile remained unfazed and continued his reckless innovations, and was eventually expelled from the Guild.
To replace his arm he designed the B.I.O.N.I.C (Burlok's Ingenious Offensive New-matic Integrated Constrictor) arm which gives him unsurpassed strength.
