Born to an African American father and a Native American mother, Smith became one of the most recent additions to the Van der Linde gang joining roughly 6-7 months before the events of the game. He states that his father was an alcoholic and was on the run before he ran away at 12 and joined other gangs and crews before 1898-1899.

Events of Red Dead Redemption II

Colter chapter

After the failed ferry robbery in Blackwater, Charles joins the gang in the mountains after finding their horses. He also burned his hand during an unknown incident, likely during the robbery but this is unclear. The following day, Arthur talks to Pearson about food who informs them that they won't be able to live on their current supplies. Charles offers to take Arthur hunting for deer in the wilderness and, after Arthur hunts down two does, carries them back to Pearson. He is also put in charge of the horses and keeping watch over captured O'Driscoll member Kieran Duffy.

Horseshoe Overlook Chapter

On the way down from the mountains, Charles, Arthur and Hosea Matthews stay behind from the main caravan to fix the wagon. During the repair, Hosea points out the Native Americans atop a nearby cliff and proceeds to tell Arthur and Charles their history. Following up on the discussion, Smith states that he doesn't know if he even has a tribe and ran away at the age of 12 and wandered the country before falling in with the gang. He can be seen around the new camp and Arthur can chose to hunting with him later on. He is then seen with Javier overlooking Blackwater in the hopes of freeing Sean McGuire. Charles proceeds to get a vantage point for when they attack the bounty hunters while Arthur, Javier and Josiah Trelawny attack head on, they then meet at the camp and free Sean and Charles takes him back to camp.

Clemens's Point chapter

After leaving Beecher's Hope it is unknown what happened to Charles although he likely went to Canada as he said to John that he wanted to start a family there.



Smith has been described as a quiet and reserved person, yet very competent in everything he takes part of, especially fights. In addition, he was noted to be a decent and honest man in spite of his deadliness as a fighter.
