Chick Mathews is a ranch hand who had financial difficulties, which resulted in him taking a loan from Leopold Strauss.
Events of Red Dead Redemption 2
When Arthur arrives at Guthrie Farm to collect the debt, Matthews is seen grooming his horse. Arthur asks a ranch worker where he can find Chick Matthews, and the ranch worker points him out. Knowing that he has been found, Chick Mathews then flees the area on horseback.
Arthur then chases after him, and eventually manages to subdue him with a lasso. Chick pleads with Arthur to let him go, and gives him the map of where his money is hidden. After doing so, Matthews runs away and Arthur collects the debt money from Chick's stash.

- Killing Chick Matthews will lower the player's Honor.
- If Chick is greeted before the other farmhand, he plays dumb and tells the player to ask the farmhand for help. However, if the player aims a weapon at him instead, he says that he doesn't know anything about a debt. Arthur then calls him out on it, pointing out that he didn't mention a debt. The chase will then begin as normal.
