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



All that is known of Agnes is pulled from her dialogue and tombstone, as she is never seen alive, nor is any mention of the story of her life or death made elsewhere.

The cries that come from Agnes' spectral form inform listeners that she fell in love with a man of whom her parents did not approve and who had some prior relationship with another woman. Although Agnes dissuaded her unnamed suitor from following his prior conquest, she was unable to convince her father that her partner was worthy of her. The elder Dowd drew a weapon, much to Agnes' dismay. Although the course and conclusion of this confrontation are unknown, Agnes apparently 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.



  • 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, amongst a group of tombstones. It reads: Agnes Dowd, aged 19, tragically took her life and others. It is unknown which other people Dowd killed, if this account of the events that transpired is true.
