Bertram is a performer for Miss Marjorie's theater act.
Events of Red Dead Redemption 2
Bertram is first encountered in the bar at Van Horn Trading Post where he can be seen acting in a most peculiar way. When the player approaches Miss Marjorie, Bertram seemingly gets angry and attacks the bartender for removing a bottle of alcohol from him.
Miss Marjorie then tries to calm him down and asks the player for assistance, resulting in a fist fight between the player and Bertram. The player eventually defeats Bertram, and Miss Marjorie asks him where the third part of their trio, the dwarf Magnifico, ran off to. While being resistant to answer the question at first, Bertram eventually tells Marjorie and the player 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.
