Hendrickson「ヘンドリクセン」 is a former Great Holy Knight of the Liones Kingdom alongside his lifelong friend, Dreyfus. He is responsible for the creation of the Reactor-class Holy Knights that threatened the peace of the kingdom. The other Great Holy Knight alongside Dreyfus, he is less honorable and willing to lie and manipulate enemies and allies alike. Earlier in his life, he was a good friend of Dreyfus, but after helping him murder Zaratras, his personality completely changed. He believes that without a war his order has no true purpose, so he's willing to revive the Demon clan in order to provoke the Holy War and give the Holy Knights an enemy to fight. He found the body of the Demon that was killed by Ban and also discovered the properties of Demon's Blood, using it to create the New Generation of Holy Knights.
He possesses the power Acid, that deteriorates the opponent's body upon being struck with his weapon infused with it unless he is defeated or dispelled by strong magic. Hendrickson also has knowledge of forbidden techniques among Druids, such as Enslavement of the Dead, that can revive anyone from the dead to serve him, however this technique only works twice, as every time a person is revived, their abilities are weakened, as well as the second time will turn the dead into a mindless person. He used this technique on Helbram. And Blood Awaken, that can cause the demon blood of the New Generation Holy Knights to run out of control, mutating them into hybrid Demons.
After Gilthunder cuts off one of his arms, he injects himself with the demon blood, regenerating his arm and gaining powers similar to those of Meliodas in demon form. He kidnaps Elizabeth and kills Dreyfus, only to be cornered by the teamwork of Meliodas, Ban, King, Diane, and Gowther. He then reveals to the Sins that he also found the body of a more powerful Gray demon, injecting himself with its blood, turning himself into a true demon. He's defeated once and for all by Meliodas' Revenge Counter.
It is revealed he survived and the Demon Fraudrin using Dreyfus' body heals him, returning him to human form and watches helplessly as the Demon Clan he once wanted to release is freed.
He reappears just in time to help Gilthunder, Howzer and Griamore to defeat a revived Gray demon, expressing disgust for his past actions.
