Henry Benton, born on 1986-06-12 in Noblesville, Indiana. His mother died giving birth, his father was a car mechanic. He is 5’7″ and 158 lbs. He is left-handed.

He had an extremist religious upbringing. He was prohibited from contact with any members of the opposite sex; according to the teachings he received, all of them were satanic beings. As a child he dreamed of becoming a conductor. But he never had the courage to tell anyone about this.

He stood out from his peers as he was significantly more mature than them. He had excellent study results in the first years of school, but these began to drop later on. At the age of 12 his contemporaries locked him up in the closet of an abandoned factory building, from which he was taken out only after 3 days, after being unconscious for hours.

In the months after he finished high school he felt intoxicated. He felt as if a huge weight was taken off of him and he wished for even more freedom. When he was 21 he was arrested multiple times for public indecency. He met a pair of twins once. He promised to marry one of them but in the end the three of them lived together for a short period of time in the house of the twins’ parents, who mysteriously disappeared.

At present he spends his days in the old barn of a neglected farm next to Santa Clara, California and helps the owner with work around the farm in return. While his financial situation is not objectively ideal, he doesn’t feel like he is short on anything. He drives a purple Daewoo. After his only childhood friend moved to Europe, he never made any new friends. People who know him describe him as intelligent.

He committed his first murder at the age of 27. Since then, he has committed 20 murders. He chooses his victims based on the sins they have committed through his own interpretation. He looks for his victims in nearby towns at night, roaming deserted streets and alleyways. He likes to watch the blood splashing from his victims, so he uses an axe. Sometimes he doesn’t understand his own actions either, he commits the murders which are driven by his instincts. He leaves the corpses in the most morbid position possible, so as to horrify those who find it and the police as much as possible. His method is characterized by sloppy professionalism.
