Silas Gaskell is a minor character featured in Red Dead Redemption and Undead Nightmare.



Silas is a longshoreman employed in West Elizabeth.

Events of Red Dead Redemption

Silas appears during the mission "Exodus in America" directing Eddie Savoy while he operates a crane to unload an automobile onto the docks. Afterwards, he can be found in Blackwater or Thieves' Landing.

Events of Undead Nightmare

He is one of the missing souls to be located in the "Missing Persons" side-missions. He is found at Critchley's Ranch, usually on the upper floor of the barn, and needs to be returned to Fort Mercer.

He can also be encountered in a random event, where he is seen fending off undead in the wilderness alongside Melvin Spinney and Fletcher King.


  • A potential relative, Delilah Gaskell, is buried within the Blackwater cemetery.
  • In Undead Nightmare, his missing persons poster describes him as a "misunderstood lover." It also states that he is wanted by friends, though the reward for his return is said to be paid by family members.
  • In Undead Nightmare, Silas expresses concern that the outbreak is punishment for something he has done in the past. While fighting off undead, he can be heard saying that he has "killed them before," though he may be unaware that only a shot to the head is fatal.
  • In Undead Nightmare, Silas is one of the few missing persons not found defending a settlement.

Gaskell owes money to Sheriff Bartlett.
