Anthony Foreman is a minor character featured in Red Dead Redemption 2 and a stranger in Red Dead Online.



At some point before 1899, Anthony Foreman formed and became the leader of the Foreman Brothers gang, which a young Tilly Jackson was a member of. However, she eventually killed Anthony's cousin, Malcolm for supposedly necessary reasons and subsequently left the gang. Since then, Anthony swore revenge on her, seeing her departure from the gang as abandoning what he considered her family.

Events of Red Dead Online

The protagonist can encounter Anthony at Radley's House, where he will initially hold them at gunpoint when they enter. However, he will relax when he realizes that they are in search of work and contracts them to kidnap Jackson James, a man he claims has been speaking ill of him.

Afterwards, Anthony can offer thefts, paid killings and other coach holdup missions to the player.

Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

Anthony is first seen harassing Tilly while Arthur is searching for her in Valentine. When Arthur intervenes, he decides to back down and leaves.

While the Van der Linde gang is staying at Shady Belle, Anthony and his gang later track down and kidnap Tilly, holding her at Radley's House. When Arthur and Susan Grimshaw arrive at the place to rescue Tilly, Grimshaw gains them entry by killing the lone Foreman gang member outside with a knife. Arthur enters the house and dispatches two gang members guarding Tilly, who states that Anthony believes he owns her and went out to hunt with his gang. Foreman and two gang members flee when Arthur and Susan exit the back door and catch sight of them, at which point Tilly requests that they capture him.

Arthur and Susan pursue Anthony and his gang, gunning down two of his men in the process. They eventually catch up to Foreman, who is promptly hogtied by Arthur and brought back to Tilly. Once Arthur brings Anthony to Radley's House, he cuts the rope binding his legs and holds a knife to his throat, before Tilly begins arguing with Foreman. She tells him that his cousin deserved to die and that he should leave her alone; in response, Foreman promises that he will leave her alone and Tilly walks away. Susan tells Arthur that he can choose to kill Foreman or spare him, adding that she’d like him to be killed while Tilly would prefer otherwise.

If the player chooses to kill Foreman: Arthur says that he doesn’t want to take any chances and then proceeds to impale Foreman in the torso with a knife, killing him.

If the player chooses to spare Foreman: Arthur unties Foreman's hands and tells him to go; the two men never encounter each other again. Foreman continues living as a criminal, and by 1907, in the epilogue, the Saint Denis Police Department placed a bounty placed on him, requiring that he be captured alive for a $85 reward. John Marston eventually takes the bounty and searches for him in the city slums, having been known to frequent Doyle's Tavern. Once John manages to discover Anthony, he flees, only to be apprehended by Marston and subsequently turned in to the Saint Denis jail. After his imprisonment, John can converse with him.

  • If Foreman is spared, it states on his wanted poster that he is a former leader of a gang. While captured, he mentions that he abandoned his gang shortly after the events of "No, No, and Thrice, No". This draws an ironic parallel with Tilly, who Foreman held a grudge against for leaving the gang.
