Dr. Barnabas Henley was a mad scientist from Virginia City with a slightly shady reputation who signed on with a mysterious “Herr B” to terrorize miners in Paiute Springs, Nevada with a floating “Reaper” automaton. He was stopped by Geraldine Keeler, Roland Dupre, and Town Marshal Lila Kimsey. But before he could testify, and possibly reveal the identity of “Herr B”, he was assassinated by Jace Chalmers, a rifleman out of Pioche. According to court testimony by Chalmers, he was hired by a Conrad Stoles in Pioche. The case against Henley, and the identity of “Herr B,” never appeared in court documents as a result.
