My daddy settled this land and I know he'll be looking down on us, pleased at how we helped the natives.
Mrs. Bush

Mrs. Bush is a minor character in Red Dead Redemption. She appears in the game's opening cutscene.



Based on her comments and dress, she is from a family of means, but she doesn't scorn Nate Johns like Mrs. Ditkiss does. She seems to have no concept of how living as the Native Americans did could be desirable, and feels they should welcome the era of "civilization". Mrs. Bush also states that her father was one of the pioneers who settled New Austin.

Events of Red Dead Redemption

The player has no real interaction with her beyond overhearing her conversation with Mrs. Ditkiss. However, she can be found waiting at the station of Benedict Point, after the completion of the mission "Man is Born Unto Trouble" and the completion of the second part of the stranger side mission "Lights, Camera, Action". Here, the player can interact with her like they can with any other NPC.

Red Dead Redemption


  • Mrs. Bush may be a reference to the wealthy Bush family who reside in Texas, on which New Austin is partly based.
  • Her conversation with Mrs. Ditkiss serves as an early representation of the themes of Red Dead Redemption, such as the death of the Old West, hypocrisy, ignorance, and greed.
