Max is a bartender who used to work at Mr. Dry's Bar, a speakeasy in the 1920s owned by Magnus Bane. He was quite an "excellent barman," as Magnus put it, as he was quick to respond to customers and knew the regulars' favorites.
In September 1929, the bar was closed down after a raid from a local police squad led by the corrupt McMantry. Unlike with the past times, however, Magnus chose not to reopen the illegal business and, thus, everyone working there, including Max, lost their jobs at the establishment.
