Events of Red Dead Online

Milliken and another guard named Jenkins are seen at the prison. Officer Jenkins and Milliken were assigned to transport a few prisoners, including the online protagonist for a work detail. During the trip, a stagecoach and a group of armed men block the road. One of the men, Horley, tells the two guard to drop their guns and not to do anything foolish. Horley then orders Jenkins to release the prisoners in the paddy wagon and tells them to leave or else they’ll be killed, to which both guards comply.

Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

When Arthur and Sadie infiltrate the Sisika Penitentiary, Sadie points her gun and interrogates a wounded guard. Milliken then appear and points a Double-barreled Shotgun at Sadie and orders her to drop her weapon, but his efforts fail as Arthur sneaks up on Milliken from behind and orders him to drop his gun. Subsequently, Arthur uses him as a hostage to bypass the guards and ultimately get to the fortified part of the prison. Arthur also orders Milliken to apologize to Sadie for threatening her, and he begrudgingly complies.

When they get to the entrance, Arthur asks Milliken who is in charge of the prison, who tells him that Heston Jameson is the man he seeks. At the gate, it is revealed that Jameson is not in attendance, though Arthur still demands the release of John Marston, telling the guards that failure to deliver him within a minute will result in Milliken being killed. The guards are initially unresponsive, but Arthur nonetheless forces Milliken to count to a minute. Distressed, Milliken eventually pleads with the guards to release John, which they do shortly after. With this, Arthur releases Milliken, who runs into the prison for safety. Assuming the player doesn’t kill Milliken in the instant after his release, another guard orders him to "stop cowering" during the ensuing gunfight as he flees.
