Bertram is a performer for Miss Marjorie's theater act.
Events of Red Dead Redemption 2
Bertram is first encountered in the Old Light Saloon at Van Horn Trading Post where he can be seen acting in a most peculiar way. Bertram seemingly gets angry and attacks the bartender for removing a bottle of alcohol from him.
After losing a fist fight, Miss Marjorie comforts a crying Bertram and asks him where the third part of their trio, the dwarf Magnifico, ran off to. While being resistant to answer the question at first, he eventually tells Marjorie that their fellow performer is hiding in the woods.

Bertram's most recognizable feature is his largely deformed head and sizable ears and nose, and has no hair other than a small ponytail on top of his scalp. He is tall in stature and has a condition known as microcephaly. Individuals with this condition were staples in freak shows during the 19th and 20th centuries in England and North America. They were billed as “pinheads” during this time.
He wears a yellow checked shirt, with what appears to be a beige shirt underneath. He wears brown jeans which are supported by blue suspenders.
- He, Magnifico and Miss Marjorie can be seen performing their act in the Théâtre Râleur.
- Physically, Bertram is clearly modeled after "Schlitzie", known for his appearance in Tod Browning's 1932 film Freaks.
