Gertrude was born to Catherine Braithwaite, and is a member of the Braithwaite family. Mentally insane, her family decided to lock her in an outhouse near Braithwaite Manor instead of sending her to a sanitarium, as they feared that the family name would be tarnished if word of Gertrude’s mental illness got out.
Events of Red Dead Redemption 2
When helping Penelope Braithwaite to escape from her family, Arthur can take her to Gertrude's outhouse. If so, Penelope reveals that Gertrude is her cousin who is mentally ill, and that her family decided that keeping her on the property would be better than sending her to a sanitarium. Penelope then states that she'll do what she can from Boston to help Gertrude, to which Arthur is highly doubtful. During this conversation, Gertrude notices Penelope outside and calls her a "bitch".
By 1907, Gertrude has died from starvation and her corpse is still locked inside the outhouse.
Gertrude is an unhinged individual prone to random fits of maniacal laughter and seems to relish in some morbid thoughts.
After being locked in an outhouse for an unknown amount of time and partially exposed to the elements, Gertrude has developed a sickly appearance. Her eyes and cheeks are sunken and her skin is considerably pale. She has light brown hair tied in pig tails and a receding hairline.
- Her name only appears in the credits.
- She is one of the many points of interest that can be found across the map.
- Gertrude's insanity could be a result of an incestuous lineage, as the Braithwaites have been known for inbreeding.
- She is the only point of interest that can't be discovered as John.
