Arturo Bullard is a pilot, who sometime before the year 1899 came in possession of and began operating a European hot air balloon.
Events of Red Dead Redemption 2
Sadie Adler hires Bullard for flying lessons for Arthur, in order to help them find John Marston, who has been sent to Sisika Penitentiary, which is on an island near Saint Denis. Once Arthur and Sadie arrive, Bullard says that flying messes with women's "vapours" and that Sadie will have to stay behind as a result. Bullard teaches Arthur how to use the hot air balloon and chats with him.
Arthur guides the balloon to the island. Bullard asks Arthur why is he going so close to a restricted area, to which Arthur tells Bullard that he is looking for his friend. Bullard takes over the controls and Arthur uses some binoculars to look for John. Arthur finds someone who must be John, but some of guards spot the balloon and attempt to shoot it down. The guards are unsuccessful, and the pair fly away unscathed.
They fly the balloon to Annesburg, where Bullard and Arthur notice that Sadie is being chased by some O'Driscolls. Arthur tells Bullard to take over the controls and takes out a rifle. Bullard is excited by the action, although he is shot during the ambush, before being shot again immediately afterwards, killing him and causing him to fall out of the balloon. Arthur takes over the controls and manages to pick up Sadie, but crashes shortly afterwards. Arthur and Sadie then kill the last of the O'Driscolls, and Arthur afterwards berates Sadie for her recklessness and for getting Bullard killed.
