Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

Charles is first encountered in Doyle's Tavern, where he and the player start to talk while sharing a drink. He tells the player that he has traveled around the world and painted pictures in various countries. He then gives the player one of his sketches before leaving.

The following day, the player finds an armed and angry man outside of Charles' residence, seemingly furious at the artist for sleeping with his wife. The player intervenes and, as a sign of his gratitude, Charles invites him to visit his art exhibition.

There are plenty of people at the exhibition when the player enters the room, and all are seemingly well.

The people are outraged at Charles' actions and within a matter of seconds, a fight breaks out in the gallery. However, Charles makes a quick escape and tells the player that he is going to lay low for a few days.

At a later point, the player stumbles upon Charles who has disguised himself as a woman and tells him that he is being persecuted by the citizens of Saint Denis.
