Charles Smith is a major character in Red Dead Redemption 2.


Born to a black father and a Native American mother, young Charles lost his mother when she was captured by US soldiers. His dad fell into depression and became a drunkard, so Charles took off on his own at the age of 13. He joined the Van der Linde Gang recently.

In Colter, Charles lends his horse to Arthur so that he and Dutch could scout ahead. He later goes hunting with Arthur, guides him on how to use a bow and has him kill two deer, carrying one back to camp as Arthur carries the other.

At Valentine, Charles gets into a bar fight alongside Arthur and Javier and later joins a train robbery with Arthur, John and Sean. After the law catches up on them, Arthur and Charles scout ahead for a new camp. They find a German woman and her children. They tell them that their husband/father has been kidnapped and held for ransom, and despite Arthur (regardless of honor level) telling the woman to get lost, Charles insists on locating the man. They succeed, fight off the kidnappers and return him to his family.

In Rhodes, Charles participates in a stagecoach robbery with Arthur, Bill and Uncle, which goes sideways due to unexpected reinforcements. He later helps Arthur rescue Trelawny and raids Braithwaite Manor to save Jack. In Saint Denis, he participates in the bank robbery, which goes sideways too and Hosea is killed. Charles distracts guards at the docks so that Dutch and the others could escape in a ship. Somehow surviving, he returns to the gang and relocates them to Lakay, which is promptly shot to pieces by Pinkerton agents.

Arthur and Charles are again sent to find a suitable replacement camp and clear it out of Murfree Brood members and rescue a girl they captured. Arthur later confides in Charles that he has tuberculosis and Charles encourages him to redeem himself and work to be a better person.

Charles then reveals that he had been working with Eagles Flies, son of Wapiti Indians chief Rains Fall. He works with Rains Fall to retrieve stolen horses from the Army and later saves Captain Monroe from being court-martialed. He and Arthur later rescue Eagles Flies when he is captured, Charles directing him to stealthily execute several guards and start a fire with an arrow. Eagle Flies leads a raid on a Cornwall oil refinery as revenge, accompanied by Charles, Arthur and the rest of the Van der Linde gang. He ends up fatally wounded and Charles brings him back to his father and decides to stay with the Indians and help them move. The gang completely fragments soon after and Arthur and Grimshaw both get killed.

In the epilogue, set 8 years later, Charles becomes a bare-knuckle boxer in Saint Denis and reunites with John, fights off mobsters and escapes the city. He helps John build his ranch and saves Uncle from the Skinner Brothers. John, Charles and Sadie later storm Micah's hideout and kill him.

Afterwards, Charles leaves for Canada. What happens to him afterwards is unknown.
