All he wanted was a lot of money and a little tail.
A temperamental drunk, Hank Henderson was once the captain of the ship Cheyenne (formerly the NewCo Cheyenne). Prior to his brief, fatal marriage to Cat Anne, Hank discovered two artifacts in outoutSol, including The Drive, the technology TCID needed to develop the life-giving Dot. Hank sold The Drive to TCID, but held on to The Conductor, another ancient artifact that was originally attached to The Drive and which Hank kept locked away in Far Commissariat.
After Hank's death, his widow Cat Anne inherited both the Cheyenne and The Conductor.
