We've been together fifty years now, me and my darling, Annabel.

Billy West.

Annabel West is a minor character featured in Red Dead Redemption. She appears in the stranger side-mission "Flowers for a Lady".


Annabel is the deceased wife of Billy West, a man who must be delusional or crazy as he believes Annabel to still be alive. She "meets" Marston after Billy invites him into their house for tea.


Marston meets her briefly at the conclusion of "Flowers for a Lady". Billy West acts as if she is still alive, and so does Marston, very uncomfortably, as to not offend.


  • Re-entering the shack following the completion of the task and bumping into Annabel will cause her head to fall off.
  • If the player returns to the shack after a while (about one day), it will be locked and deserted if looking through the large cracks in the walls, but Annabel's head will still be in the ground if knocked off.
  • The corpse is somewhat a reminiscence of the 1960 film Psycho in which a delusional son believes his mother to be alive after her death and keeps her hidden from the world, leaving her corpse in a rocking chair. The hair of Annabel is similar to the mother's.
  • She is possibly a reference to the Edgar Allan Poe poem "Annabel Lee."
  • Before delivering the herbs, she cannot be seen though the wall cracks of the shack.
  • She has assumed to be dead for a few decades at this point due to the flesh on her corpse rotting away and she being a general skeleton at the point that Marston meets her.
  • Despite the fact of her being dead, If the player uses a pair of Binoculars or a Rolling Block Rifle, Her mouth can be seen moving.
