Clay Burton is the personal assistant and bodyguard for Kai Proctor.

Despite his small stature and the fact that he comes across as a quiet person, Burton has displayed sheer ruthlessness as seen in "Meet the New Boss" where he heads into the trailer of a MMA fighter who was arrested for rape and confronts the MMA fighter's manager where it's implied that he presumably tortures the man.


Clay is a ruthless killer who kills and tortures people without any remorse. He was being tortured by some criminals and got saved by Proctor. As a result he is highly loyal and is willing to do anything to help and protect Kai. He is willing to die in order to protect Kai or carry out his orders. 

Someone has castrated him under torture. Because he is a eunuch he is not easily distracted and he does his job very effectively. He seems detached, calm and polite on the outside but in some cases he expresses his feelings like rage when he found out that Rebecca was disobeying her uncle. This eventually caused him to take matters into his own hands and kill Rebecca because he thought she was becoming a burden to her uncle.


Clay is highly skilled in the use of violence. He is a highly skilled marksman and can proficiently wield a variety of weapons. 

He is a highly skilled killer and uses knives and a garrote to quickly kill enemies. 

Clayton is a highly skilled hand to hand fighter, along with being adept with knives and other weapons. Despite his small size he can kill multiple people at ease. He is able to ignore devastating injuries and keep fighting without seeming to be affected by any pain, as shown in his fight with Nola Longshadow. After his victory, he was able to stitch his own wounds.
