Augustus Bendix is a major with the US Army.

BackgroundEdit

Bendix has a profound interest in phrenology, or the study of the dimensions of the skull in relation to emotional and mental capacities in humans. Bendix often introduces himself as Doctor Major Augustus Bendix, but it is not known where he studied or if it is a medical degree, though his phrenology knowledge would suggest in the affirmative.

Season 3Edit

Main article: Season 3

When Bohannon confronts Bendix about not following his countermand not to attack the Indians suspected of cattle rustling, Bendix tells Bohannon that he ignored the second order as it was more in line with orders from his superiors. He views the Indians as subhuman based on their cranial structure and failure to produce genius writers as Western civilization has. "Range War"
