Henry is a virile, charismatic man. He is also the figurehead leader of COMMUNITY. His story is clouded in mystery because of a UFO incident in the past. Twenty-five years went by before he arrived back on Earth, and he then took over control.
Henry is also a megalomaniac. He has no qualms about having his enemies ‘removed from the scene’. But he knows he has very little time to consolidate his power because of an immanent arrival of an alien invasion at Jerusalem.
When he meets Benjamin, he decides to try to win him over by whatever means are available to him. In Benjamin’s indoctrination scene, the tables are turned and Henry finds himself the one answering all the questions. That’s never a good thing.
(He would be the Emperor Tiberius’ representative, Pontius Pilate.)
