From the Tales of the American Burden, Y-14 Post Burden (P.B.).

Number 20 in C.W. Boyle's Burden chronology guide: "Ocampo’s attempt to craft history extended even beyond his second death. Stationed by Ocampo to the Old Museum, the four-armed mercenary Magnus Thrax was charged with the protection of the art and history within. Presumably Ocampo would reconstruct this history in his image after the Cephalophoric War, though due to his defeat, this plan would go unfulfilled.

Unaware of Ocampo’s fall from power, Magnus Thrax remained for years inside the Museum’s great halls, fending and scaring off any who tried to set foot into his ward. Eventually the truth must have found its way to Thrax by some means. 'It must have been maddening,' biographer Fredrich Price writes, 'To discover the world had continued on without you.' Thrax eventually disappeared from the Museum."
