Nothing is known of Elvin's background. His clothing however suggests that he may have once been a sailor or enlisted in the navy.

Events of Red Dead Redemption

Elvin can be encountered in various settlements in New Austin, where he is a stagecoach driver. He can also sometimes be seen playing Liar's Dice. He can be encountered all over Thieves' Landing doing a variety of odd jobs. Occasionally, he can be found playing Liar's Dice in Escalera and in Casa Madrugada, but never in Thieves' Landing which is a bit odd.
