Bauer was a German immigrant who worked as a butcher in Hell on Wheels.
Bauer traveled from Germany with his close friend, Dieter Schmidt.
Bauer sought revenge against those he thought responsible for the death of Schmidt. After Mickey began boasting about killing Schmidt, though it had been, in fact, Elam who had killed him, Bauer turned his anger against the McGinnes brothers. He was later killed in a face off in the slaughterhouse against the brothers.
