Joshua Graham is a Mormon missionary, co-founder of Caesar's Legion and its first Legate, known as the Malpais Legate. Following the defeat of the Legion at the First Battle of Hoover Dam, Caesar covered Graham in pitch, set him ablaze and threw him down the Grand Canyon as a message that failure, even at the highest of ranks, is not tolerated. However, Graham miraculously survived and came to be known as the "Burned Man" in folk legend; his survival is played down by the higher ranks of the Legion, but lower ranking legionaries and slaves speak of the Burned Man as if he is a vengeful spirit, waiting to return. Stripped of all power and glory, Graham returned to New Canaan and was welcomed with open arms, but Caesar wished the very memory of Graham be removed from history and ordered the White Legs, a prospective tribe seeking assimilation into the Legion, to burn the Mormon town to the ground. Upon learning of the city's destruction, the Burned Man became the acting war-chief of the Dead Horses of Zion Canyon, aiming to deliver God's wrath upon the White Legs.
