Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters

Ben is seen arriving at the town square. He watches as Mina is being tortured by Sheriff Berringer. Later, Hansel and Gretel stops the sheriff and introduces themselves.

Later, at the pub, Ben arrives and he shows them his scrapbook, filled with articles of their work. He then asks them questions about witch hunting. Moments later, a tracker arrives and he explodes before them.

The Redhead Witch and Muriel arrives at the town to release the Horned Witch. Muriel had attacked Gretel and Ben brought her to his house. The next day, Gretel awakes and Ben is seen taking care of Gretel. Gretel then notices a picture of her that Ben drew. Gretel gets up and looks around to notice a picture of her mom.

Ben is seen later as he helps Hansel and Mina kill the witches at the Blood Moon Sabbath. During the battle, Ben stays in the forest nearby and shoots Muriel down when she attempts to escape. Muriel briefly uses Ben as a hostage before Hansel shoots her through Ben's shoulder to free him. He later enters the Gingerbread House and throws up after seeing Muriel's decapitated head.

Later Ben is seen with Hansel, Gretel and Edward as they trek to the Desert Witch's House.

Pronounced BEN-jə-min. From the Hebrew name בִּנְיָמִין (Binyamin) which means "son of the south" or "son of the right hand". Benjamin in the Old Testament is the twelfth and youngest son of Jacob and the founder of one of the southern tribes of the Hebrews. He was originally named בֶּן־אוֹנִי (Ben-'oniy) meaning "son of my sorrow" by his mother Rachel, who died shortly after childbirth, but it was later changed by his father.

As an English name, Benjamin came into general use after the Protestant Reformation. A famous bearer was Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790), an American statesman, inventor, scientist and philosopher.
