Characters in Red Dead Redemption include those who are directly controllable by the player as well as non-playable characters (NPCs), major and minor, who are encountered during the game. This page lists characters encountered during Single Player gameplay only, please see Multiplayer Characters for details on characters available in Multiplayer gameplay.


Each character in the game possesses unique personalities, habits, and individual routines and jobs. Despite the fact that in the game the era known as the "Wild" West is coming to an end, most of the characters seem to retain most of the traits, values, and personalities that are synonymous with this period. John Marston meets and interacts with a variety of different characters in the game.

Character Classes

Characters are classified into these 4 categories:

Central Characters: These are characters without whom the story would not even occur. They transcend any particular section of the story because they have a larger overall importance due to their actions even before the in-game story begins.

Major Characters: All of the folks the player will interact with that move the story forward - these are the mission-givers.

Supporting Characters: These are characters that have a larger role in the story but not quite to the level of a mission-giver.

Minor Characters: Characters that play very little part in the story or are unnecessary to meet to move the story forward. Due to the number of minor characters, this list has also been further broken down into smaller sub-categories. These sub-categories range from Strangers and Stranger mission characters to NPCs such as shopkeepers, and include all characters introduced in the Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare DLC pack.
