Little is known about Henderson's early life apart from the fact that he is considered to be a very prominent journalist. He covers stories for the newspaper First Edition.
Hitman: Blood Money
Henderson comes to interview Cayne about the White House attack, but Cayne starts talking about Agent 47 and the contract killings he commits from "A Vintage Year" to "Amendment XXV". Henderson appears in most cut-scenes throughout the game, his questions to Cayne serving to elicit plot information and advancing the story. As Cayne's answers are sometimes incomplete or untrue, it is revealed to the player that Cayne has hidden motives. Initially, Henderson doesn't believe Cayne when he mentions Agent 47, believing the assassin to be merely an urban legend. But when he sees 47's body being readied for cremation, Rick is surprised.
- If cornered by 47, Henderson will plead "Your secret's safe with me. I swear to God, I won't tell a soul!". This is despite the fact that he has an audio recorder in his hand.
