Clyde Evans

Clyde Evans is a minor character featured in Red Dead Redemption. He is the subject of the stranger side-mission "Water and Honesty".



Evans is the owner of Pleasance House in Cholla Springs. If Clyde is killed, McAllister tells Marston that "he has a son living in Blackwater", and tells him to keep quiet about the whole affair. If the player decides to pay for the deed, Clyde claims he will use the money to move to Blackwater.

Events of Red Dead Redemption

The player is asked to acquire a land deed from Evans for the Stranger side-mission "Water and Honesty". Clyde can be found at Pleasance House. If Marston purchases the deed, Clyde says he'll use the money to move to Blackwater. He is never seen again by the player.

Alternately the player can simply kill or hogtie him and take the deed, although the former will cost Marston 100 honor points.


The land's too dry for farming, bandits ran all the cattle off. Why you want this land?

  • Clyde shares the same character head with Milford Weaver, Elvin Coggins, Louis Granger, Herman Ruff, Clifford Ray, and Dewey Alcock.
  • Clyde wears the same outfit as the men who work for the Railroad Company.
  • It is unknown where Clyde was when Marston and the police were hunting Walton Lowe, as Walton was staying in Clyde's home.
  • If the player follows Clyde after purchasing the deed, he will travel to Dixon Crossing and walk into the water. However, if West Elizabeth is unlocked, Clyde will walk to Blackwater and glitch through the doors of the police station. That is unless he isn't killed by wild animals, or criminals along the way, as Clyde will not use his revolver to defend himself.
