Burt Diamond is the villain of Twisted Thicket. He destroys the magic orb and attempts to destroy the forest.
The Developer asks for your help when you first meet him, stating that the forest creatures have prevented him from finishing his construction project. After you get past the creatures and arrive at the Elf Queen's realm. The Developer and his goons, the Lumberjerks, arrive and he reveals that he wants to get rid of the forest to make space for his construction project. The Developer later reveals is to create the largest casino on Earth. He and the lumberjerks then shatter the magic orb, leaving the forest defenseless and turning all the forest creatures to stone. You must then harness the powers of the forest creatures and use a mystical Amulet to defeat him before he gets to the forest. After doing so, he promises never to harm the forest again and gives up the shards. It is unknown what became of him afterwards but he and his Lumberjerks are not seen at the construction site again.
