Ernest Franklin grew up resentful of beards because he could never grow one of his own due to a male hormone deficiency. He dubbed himself the Beard Hunter and started a lonely war against facial hair; killing bearded men and keeping their beards as trophies. At the age of thirty-six, Ernest still lived with his mother and spent all his free time working out and reading body-building magazines. He dreamed of a movie or comic book being made one day about his exploits as the Beard Hunter.
