Appearances and Mentions

Bad Pennies

  • Lionel Armstrong is hired by the Toronto Port Authority to help with the dispute with the dockworkers demanding fair working wages.
  • Experienced in these matters as a senior agent for the Pinkerton's, Lionel Armstrong has connections to the Homestead Strike that he does not want known.
  • Armstrong had murdered his former fellow agent Carl Landers to keep his secret, then he kills Quinn as the Constabulary gets closer to uncovering the truth – with the same squeeze-fire palm pistol to the head at close range.
  • At Homestead, it was senior Pinkerton Agent Lionel Armstrong who gave the order to have fellow Agent Daniel Parker shot, as subterfuge to justify retaliation against the steelworkers for firing the "first shot".
