Project Orion Edit
Burke was a leading scientist in charge of Project Orion, working alongside Dr. Anton Koenig and Dr. Nathan Bellamy. The primary goal of the top-secret project was to create a super soldiers to fight against James Heller and Alex Mercer. Like many other scientists in Gentek, Burke was ruthless. He also had contact with Colonel Rooks.
When phase one of Project Orion was interrupted by James Heller, Burke managed to save some important tests and results in order to allow the project's second phase to proceed. The goal of phase two was to develop even stronger super soldiers, and a single phase two soldier was produced. However, Heller managed to destroy Burke's results and kill the phase two soldier. With phase two halted, a furious Burke was then killed and consumed by James Heller.
In Burke's memories, Heller discovered that Koenig not only betrayed his colleagues involved with Project Orion, but also Heller himself.
