Burn was a wolf companion of Elyas, encountered by Perrin and Egwene after fleeing Shadar Logoth. He had a burn mark on his left shoulder, given to him as a yearling by trollocs, which Perrin thought might have been the origin of the name. This gave him a deep hatred of trollocs, that almost overwhelmed him (TEotW, Ch. 23). Along with Dapple, Hopper and Wind, he accompanied Elyas, and the others when they met the Travelling people (TEotW, Ch. 27) and then when chased by ravens into the stedding where they met the Whitecloaks under the command of Geofram Bornhald (TEotW, Ch. 29).
