Captain Lyndon Monroe is a supporting character featured in Red Dead Redemption 2.

History

Background

An honest and loyal military officer, Captain Monroe was sent down from the Washington following reports of unrest in the region. Despite his best effort to help the Reservation and make peace between the Wapiti and the US Army, the conflict continued to escalate.

Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

Arthur first meets Monroe when he goes to the reservation to talk to Rains Fall. During this encounter, Monroe will ask Arthur for some help. If he accepts, Arthur will later talk to him at the reservation. Monroe tells him that Colonel Favours has ordered for vaccines to be redirected from the reservation, which was meant to help the Indians fight off a surge in smallpox. Arthur steals the smallpox vaccine from an Army carriage, and delivers it to Monroe at the reservation.

Arthur will next see Monroe when he and Charles attend peace talks between the army and the Indians. When Arthur is forced to go into a medical tent due to coughing from tuberculosis, he hears some soldiers talking about Monroe. After listening closer, he learns that Favours plans to charge Monroe with treason and hang him for being too friendly with the natives. After the negotiations between Rains Fall and Favours collapses, Favours orders for Monroe to be arrested and tried for treason. This results in Charles and Arthur each taking a soldier hostage and trading them for Monroe. The three will then leap onto their horses and attempt to escape, but soldiers follow them. The trio are forced to take shelter behind a rock, and waves of enemies assault the position. Arthur and Charles slay the attacking soldiers, before bringing Monroe to Emerald Station. When they get there, Monroe boards the train after being given some money by Arthur, and isn't seen again.
