The Character known as Burt the Sheriff is a fictional character from DFA. He was played by Alex Niedt. He is a Mechwarrior and the law enforcement officer responsible for the Hastur system.
On Hastur II, the Sheriff took command of a small combined arms force of tanks, fighter jets and a single QKD-4H Quickdraw nicknamed Suzette . He tried to intercept and apprehend the, then unnamed, Marauders after they broke Mason Garrilac out of the Lockdown prison facility during Episode 1 - Lockdown . He was accompanied by his unnamed deputy (played by Nate Weisman) and helpers Jimmy I and II.
The Sheriff displayed a lot of overconfidence and stereotypical traits of a backwater periphery resident. He spoke English with an southern american accent and the associated slang.
