Agnes Dowd is a minor character and a point of interest featured in Red Dead Redemption 2.



According to the cries of her spectral form, Agnes fell in love with a man that her parents did not approve of, who had a previous relationship with another woman. Although Agnes dissuaded her suitor from following his prior girlfriend, she was unable to convince her father that her partner was worthy of her. This ultimately resulted in the elder Dowd drawing a weapon, to Agnes' dismay.

Although the course and conclusion of this confrontation are unknown, Agnes allegedly took her own life after killing unknown individuals. A simple tombstone bearing her name, age and alleged crimes stands among others behind Shady Belle.

Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

Agnes can be seen as a ghost in Bluewater Marsh between 9 pm and 3 am. She will disappear if the player comes too close to her.



  • Agnes Dowd is very similar to the ghost of Jolene Cranley-Evans from Grand Theft Auto V, another title by Rockstar Games, as they both are ghosts of women who died tragically and who only appear at night and disappear when approached by the player.
  • In camp, Reverend Swanson says that he has seen ghosts around the marsh, and when interacted with, he claims to have seen Agnes in the marsh.
  • A gravestone bearing her name can be found just behind Shady Belle, among a group of tombstones. It reads: Agnes Dowd, aged 19, tragically took her life and others. It is unknown which other people Dowd killed, or whether this account of events is true.
  • The date of her death - September 4th, 1883 - is two weeks before the massacre that killed the residents of Pleasance.
  • A box and noose can be found at the tree next to which her ghost appears.
