Magistrate Rutherford Burnside was a human found in Hillsbrad in the Hillsbrad Foothills. Before the Cataclysm, High Executor Darthalia wanted Burnside killed in order to disrupt the leadership of the Hillsbrad community which was possibly an unsuccessful attempt.

He was the most recent leader of the Hillsbrad Fields, until the Forsaken assaulted the town. Burnside and a few dozen Hillsbrad residents stayed behind to defend the town but was ultimately defeated, imprisoned, and experimented on. Now he has joined the ranks of the undead as an elite skeletal mage.[1] He is invulnerable, floating inside a bubble. Master Apothecary Lydon in the Sludge Fields wants him dead in order to remove all traces of Warden Stillwater's experiments. During the fight, Apothecary Lydon and Jenny are assisting the adventurer to kill him.
