Daniel Hendricks was a delusional religious fanatic and cult leader. He embraced a fanatical, apocalyptic brand of Christianity after his older brother died of a drug overdose. After being thrown out of the military, he founded a religious cult. He believed that the only way to serve God was to kill in His name. He persuaded one of his followers, Wendy Berman, to bomb a church, sacrificing her life in the process. After he was found guilty of murder, the rest of his followers committed mass suicide.
He is based upon real-life cult leader and murderer Charles Manson.
