- The Burning One Addressing his Fiery Message
....Eh um...back on topic, the Burning One was one of the C'tan Gods and the one responsible for telling the Necrons how to break into the Dolmen Gates in the Webway to trash the Old Folk's home during the War in Heaven. And if you have guessed, the dude's a fucking pyromaniac, as in, he could rival the Salamanders on ways to copulate with fire. I wouldn't be surprised if he jerks off at pictures of burning corpses.
Like all other C'tan, the Burning One was shattered into a billion pieces and used as Pokemon by the Necron forces. Hell, a shard of Nyadra'zatha was later discovered by Trazyn the Infinite on the world of Midgardia (Don't ask how a shard landed on one of the planets of the Fenris systems). Of course in order to get there Trollzyn needed to fight off the Space Furries in order to get to his collection. In the ensuing battle, Trazyn raided the world and was able to acquire the shard. You could say that the Burning One would be the C'tan equivalent of Charizard, if said charizard had the power to almost literally shrug of a bombardment from and then proceed to crack open and cook from the inside, a tyranid hierophant with its bare, godly hands... and if it was the case it would explain why Trollzyn was so eager to get his hands on one. The Silent King also has a shard of Nyadra'zantha, which he uses to power his Dais of Dominion and personal weaponry in addition to wearing its skin like a cape. He also uses its raw power to TEAR OPEN THE WEBWAY WHENEVER HE WANTS AS A PERSONAL DOLMEN GATE. What a badass.
Recently had his own rules in both Champions of Fenris and Shield of Baal: Exterminatus. All his attacks have Soul Blaze and has a special power of S5 AP4 assault 2D6 ignores cover soul blaze and the special rule Wall of Fire which means all the attacks auto-hit including flyers and models blocked by line of sight.
These were for special missions however and not a special character that any army could take. Instead there is a formation in Exterminatus to represent the Burning One, which is squad consisting of a single shard and two Crypteks, where the whole unit uses the Toughness of the Shard and it also gets Feel No Pain. Despite its name, the formation could easily apply to any other C'Tan as well. Although in all honesty it would have made more sense to just create a new model for Nyadra'zatha instead.
