Ellie Anne Swan is a minor character featured in Red Dead Redemption 2.



Sometime before the year 1899, Swan murdered her mother and several husbands. The Valentine Sheriff's Office suspects her of the murder and has placed a bounty on her head. She is wanted alive for questioning.

Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

If in Valentine, and having completed the first bounty mission the Sheriff will offer, Arthur or John can obtain a bounty mission to bring her in for twenty-five dollars.

Arthur will go to the Cumberland Falls area, where she was last sighted. After arriving, Swan will tell her new husband to attack Arthur. After her husband tells Swan she needs to go with him, she stabs him with a knife before attacking Arthur. After subduing her, Arthur will put her on the back of his horse, and bring her to Valentine. Along the way, Swan will try to convince Arthur to let her go, and even try to convince him to run off with her. Despite this, Arthur stays firm and brings her to the Sheriff. After walking in, Arthur will make the Sheriff aware that he watched her kill another potential husband (unless Arthur managed to hogtie Ellie before she stabbed him to death, and the potential husband before he could kill Arthur, in which case he will comment that the man was lucky to have escaped), before collecting his money and leaving her in a cell.
