Sometime prior to 1899, Rains Fall was named Chieftain of the Wapiti Indians. He had a wife and two sons; his wife and elder son were killed by the US Army before the events of the game, while his younger son was Eagle Flies.
Events of Red Dead Redemption 2
Saint Denis Chapter
Rains Fall attended Mayor Henri Lemieux’s party with Eagle Flies. Later, Rains Fall is seen with Eagle Flies talking to Evelyn Miller, where they are trying to arrange a meeting in an attempt to stop their relocation. Arthur Morgan approaches them soon after, and Rains Fall offers to pay him well if he steals important documents from the Cornwall company in the hope of preventing them from being moved from the reservation.
Beaver Hollow Chapter
Arthur will next encounter Rains Fall at the reservation to talk to him, if the player decides to help him. The two go on a ride, in which he learns that Arthur has contracted Tuberculosis. Rains Fall decides to help Arthur and collects plants that will slow down the disease. It is when doing this, that he finds that the U.S. Army has destroyed an ancient spiritual site that the tribe holds dear. Realizing that if his people learn of this they will have war, he asks Arthur to stealthily recover several artifacts that were stolen. Arthur does this, and Rains Fall thanks him before giving him the herbs.
Charles and Arthur go to the reservation, where they tell the chief that they will rescue Eagle Flies, who has been captured, rather than make him go to war. He will later have the pair come to a peace meeting with Colonel Favours. After Favours begins insulting his tribe, he storms out and watches as Charles and Arthur exchange fire with the army as they rescue Captain Monroe.
Rains Fall is next seen when he rides into Beaver Hollow begging his men not to go to war. Alas, they do not listen to him and attack the US Army at the oil refinery nonetheless. Eagle Flies is mortally wounded in this battle, and Arthur and Charles bring his body back to him. Rains Fall watches his last son die, and weeps.
Eight years later, John Marston can meet Rains Fall at the train station in Annesburg. Rains Fall reveals that he and his tribe were forced to move to Canada, and that he had temporarily returned to America to mourn the death of his son, which he had still not fully recovered from. He then boards a train to return to Canada.
Rains Fall is a pacifist, unlike his son Eagle Flies. He wishes that everything the Indians do is done in peace, and is willing to put up with decades of abuse from the U.S. Army if it means no war. Despite this, he understands the views his son possesses about wanting to fight against their oppressors and there being glory in death, but after seeing the deaths of so many of his own people and his enemies, he claims he hasn't found glory in any of their deaths. He seems to admit his pacifism and lack of action against his people's oppressors, claiming that he is a disappointment to his son.
