Richard Francis Burton was a British explorer and translator. Burton's exploits include travelling to Mecca (despite a ban on European visitors), exploring Africa in search of the source of the Nile River, and publishing English translations of The Arabian Nights and the Kama Sutra. Burton was a member of the Cahill family and traveled to Egypt in search of the Sakhet statues left by Katherine Cahill that pointed to a hidden Clue, Myrrh.
Burton's branch is unknown, though, according to Ekaterina leader Bae Oh, Burton was not an Ekaterina. It is possible that he belonged to the Tomas branch, as his abilities in exploration align with the branch's talents. In addition, Bae mentioned Burton while listing non-Ekats who had searched for the Sakhet statues, and listed two Lucians (Flinders Petrie and Winston Churchill) and a Janus (Mark Twain), but no Tomas.
