The Bork (or Powell)

A curious creature, the Bork, or Powell, as it is sometimes called, comes from a lineage so noble and environment so regimented that it cannot help but to follow the orders of its superiors. Unfortunately, this creature most often thrives in this circumstance just long enough to follow one order too many. As its superiors are often self-serving and otherwise careless, the ultimate order is almost always the one the destroys the career of the Bork/Powell, effectively ending its existence as a being relevant to anything but this bestiary.
