Okay, but we fight like men, not like dogs!
Raul Zubieta challenging Marston to a duel

Raul Zubieta is a minor character featured in Red Dead Redemption.



Zubieta is a major in the Mexican Army, serving under Colonel Allende.

Judging by his rank and the medals on his chest, he is a staff officer, but is lower ranked than Allende.

Events of Red Dead Redemption

Before "An Appointed Time" the major is responsible for El Presidio and commands the soldiers there. The player can often see him looking through binoculars on the watchtower, which has a Gatling Gun.

Zubieta appeared in many missions that take place in Nuevo Paraiso. In the mission An Appointed Time Zubieta and his soldiers captured Abraham Reyes and were preparing to execute him until Marston arrives. John threatened to kill Raul and his soldiers if they didn't let Reyes go. But before Raul can answer, Luisa Fortuna charges the major with a Knife. She is shot three times in the chest and falls dead to the ground. In rage, Marston kills Zubieta's soldiers and Zubieta challenges Marston to a duel, in which Zubieta is killed.

His character model is not seen again in El Presidio after the end of the Nuevo Paraíso chapter.

Undead Nightmare

In the Undead Nightmare, Zubieta appears alive and well, defending Chuparosa and El Presidio. There is no unique interaction between him and Marston. He still arms himself with his Schofield Revolver seen in the base game.
