Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

Crawford can be found in his store in northern Van Horn, where he can sell a selection of weapons, pamphlets and provisions to the player. He can also be used to craft talismans & trinkets. His store is also available to the Red Dead Online protagonist.


  • He owns a Catahoula Cur that can often be seen in the store. If the player decides to kill Crawford, the dog can be seen whining and mourning his owner.
  • According to his accent, Crawford is likely of Scottish or Irish descent.
  • When robbing his store, he may try to kill the player using his Cattleman Revolver. However, robberies on his business rarely get reported to the law, even if Crawford gets killed in the process.
  • A decorated chest with Princess Isabeau Katharina Zinsmeister initials and the Luxembourg Royal Seal can be found inside his store, indicating Crawford might have been involved in her disappearance or that he bought her belongings from her kidnappers the same way he does with the player's stolen valuables.
  • When townsfolk become hostile towards the player, his dog may be marked as an enemy on the map, though it will be locked inside the store.
