Aburn is one of the members of the Elephant race of Third Earth who reside in the Elephant Village.

Like all Elephants he is a pacifist who believes in meditation more than violence and prefers to let nature take its course. The one thing that he and all the other Elephants never forget is that there is a delicate balance to everything in nature.

When the ThunderCats arrive in the Elephant Village searching for the Spirit Stone, the Elephants want to help but are unable to dues to their poor memory so the ThunderCats search themselves. During this time Aburn befriends WilyKit and upon seeing her playing her Flupe, he and the other Elephants join in with trumpeting and together they achieve perfect harmony which shatters some boulders nearby.

When the Stone Giant attacks the Elephant Village and the ThunderCats are unable to fend it off, Aburn, his Elephant friends and WilyKit play their music again and the perfect harmony that they achieve shatters the Stone Giant to pieces.

Despite practising non-violence most of the time, the Elephants to fight when it is necessary and they did so when helping the ThunderCats fend off Grune and the Lizard Army who had besieged their village. Aburn and the Elephants also came to the ThunderCats' aid in Avista and helped them fight off Mumm-Ra.

ThunderCats 2011 Bullet Point.png Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Like all the Elephants, Aburn too appears to be based on Indian spiritual monks, possibly Buddhists.
  • Due his poor memory, Aburn refers to Lion-O by a number of wrong names such as Lionel, Lion Lord and Linus.
  • The first time that Aburn addresses Lion-O, he calls him "Lionel". In Leonard Starr's first draft of the original 1980s ThunderCats series, the main protagonist was called "Lion-L" which sounds like "Lionel". This was later changed to Lion-O.
