Burnish is the (former) tertiary antagonist turned supporting character in the 2019 Dreamworks film, Abominable. He is the CEO of a Shanghai company called Burnish Industries who wished to reveal the existence of yetis to the world until having a change of heart.

Burnish is voiced by Eddie Izzard.

Personality

In his first scene, Burnish is shown to be a corrupt, greedy businessman who's bent on capturing Everest to reveal his existence and earn money on revealing the yeti's existence. However, it is revealed that Burnish's determination to show the yeti to the world is actually caused when Burnish saw a yeti a long time ago when he was a young man, but no one believed him. After that, Burnish became fixed on proving the existence of yetis so he can show that he wasn't crazy and not be laughed at again. However, after seeing Everest's magical abilities, Burnish began to have second thoughts about capturing him. Then, when he saw Everest use his powers to protect Yi, Jin, and Peng, along with recalling he saw a yeti protecting her children, Burnish realized his mistakes and ordered his men to not shoot Everest, only to be knocked out by Dr. Zara. After Zara's defeat, Burnish apologizes to Everest and allows the kids to take Everest home by giving them warm coats. In the end, he's shown to be on friendlier terms with the kids as he takes them home and sends them a package full of hiking equipment for their next adventure.
