Pray for a swift death.
Shadow Wolf

Shadow Wolf is a major character featured in Red Dead Revolver.

With the addition of the Legends and Killers DLC pack, Shadow Wolf is a multiplayer character model in Red Dead Redemption.


Shadow Wolf was a native American that preferred hunting and scouting on his own, but when Chief Running Moon told Shadow Wolf he couldn't visit with his favorite cousin; Red Harlow, anymore, he drifted even farther away. Despite this, the tribe always respected him for his amazing woodcraft and the fact that he never backed down from an insult, especially one from the Black Elk Tribe.


When it was discovered that Red was still alive, but locked up in General Diego's mine, none questioned the decision of the elders to send Shadow Wolf to the rescue. His final deeds drove the Black Elk away and ended the desecration of Bear Mountain.

Shadow Wolf was mortally wounded during his and Red's attack on Fort Diego by Colonel Daren. Red killed Daren, but Shadow Wolf died later in Red's arms. Red took Shadow Wolf's knife and stabbed deceased Daren in the chest.

Shadow Wolf ended up becoming more famous dead than he ever was alive.
