General Burnside was found by S'oggy Balls after he was recovering from a Skooma Break in the Bannered Mare. He traveled with Balls during the course of his time with the Companions and Thieves guild. He killed Aela (possible accident). He is addicted to Butter Pecan ice cream, which sends him into a murderous rampage.
He continued to travel with S'oggy for the rest of the season, often throwing arrows, instead of using a bow and indulging in his battle dance.
In the season finale, upon meeting Cock Nibbler (who hates goblins) he was told to wait outside, as S'oggy, Fün, Crotch, Frea and Cock, all explored Cock's home. However, we later learn it was all a trick, and S'oggy was killed by the rest of the group, but not before killing Cock. General Burnside is still waiting outside, for a master who will most likely not come back to him.
S'oggy's death scene was a reference to Game Of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire's Red Wedding, in which Grey Wind, Robb Stark's pet direwolf, was killed soon before Robb Stark. It is possible that Burnside awaits the same fate as Grey Wind, but this is only speculation.
Is fond of his dick as seen by the multiple references he makes to it.
He is a Riekling hunter, and specializes using bows and arrows, however he normally just throws the arrow, with deadly precision.
- "My dick." - very first words that come out of General Burnside's mouth when S'oggy Balls meets him.
- "Woodchuck butt." - whenever.
