Red Dead Wiki

Take a moment... even this man deserves some kindness. Let the Almighty decide his ultimate fate. Father, some men exist to test our faith... this man here, Elias Green, butchered countless innocents and took... souvenirs of their flesh... until, thankfully, he was stopped by a lone man, another lost soul on their own path. For in these dark times it takes a goodly brute to put an end to men like these. Guess... I guess that's all there is. Amen.
Preacher's eulogy

  • Although Green isn't the leader of the Skinner Brothers like Otis Skinner, he's considered more dangerous, as his $90 bounty is 15 dollars more than Skinner's.
  • After capturing him, John will joke about taking away his hat. However, even if it’s picked up, the hat can't be saved in the wardrobe.
  • Like Otis Skinner, Elias Green is buried in the cemetery located on the outskirts of Blackwater.
  • Elias Green's look could have been inspired by ”Bear Man”, a dentist, and trader from Coen brothers' True Grit.
