In Red Dead Redemption 2, the Van Der Linde Gang is a group of bad guys. But their ages show a lot about what they know and what skills they have.
Arthur Morgan is the main character of the game Red Dead Redemption 2, and he is also the game’s main character. In the second game in the Red Dead forgiveness series, the main character continues on his path to forgiveness as he comes to terms with his past and how people saw him.
He was in the Van Der Linde Gang, and his loyalty to the group brought him both the best and the worst things in his life. There are a lot of people in the gang, but who is the eldest and youngest of the most well-known ones? Let’s look at the Red Dead Redemption 2 Van Der Linde Gang and rank them from oldest to youngest.
Uncle (Mid 50s – Early 60s)
In the Red Dead Redemption games, Uncle’s age has never been clear. He looks the same in both major games, which doesn’t help. Uncle jokes that he was born between the fall of 1849 and the fall of Rome, even when you ask him about it. He looks even more old and worn than Hosea.
Uncle is probably about the same age as Hosea or a little bit older, which would put him between 55 and 60. Uncle has lived a long life, even though he often lies. He also knows his way around the Old West and can trick people when he needs to.
Hosea Matthews (55)
Hosea was Dutch Van Der Linde’s right-hand man for a reason long before the Van Der Linde gang started. Hosea, who was 11 years older than Dutch, was the only one who could keep Dutch under control.
At the age of 55, Hosea had already lived a long life and lost a lot. This is most clear with Bessie, his long-dead wife. Most of the group looked up to him because he was old, wise, and smart. The early deaths of Hosea and Lenny showed how gang members in the Wild West lived and died.
Dutch Van Der Linde (44)
During the events of Red Dead Redemption 2, Dutch Van der Linde was 44 years old. The guidebook says that Dutch was born in 1855. If he hadn’t met Hosea Matthews and become friends with him, he would have been the oldest member of the gang.
Dutch people have always been smarter than they are smart. Even though he had a lot of plans, it was clear that the Blackwater heist had hurt him. After the Saint Denis heist didn’t work out, Dutch’s emotions got worse and he became more distant. Micah was able to trick and lie to him more easily after Hosea died.
Susan Grimshaw (Early 40s – Mid 40s)
Susan Grimshaw was in charge of the Van der Linde Gang and was in charge of many things that happened behind the scenes. Susan was one of the first people to join the group, and she loved Dutch very much. Susan looks about the same age as Dutch, and she has been with the group for about as long.
It makes sense to put her in her early to mid-40s. She had a long life before she became a criminal. Susan was set in her ways, and it was clear when she killed Molly for being rude. Long after she died, it was clear that not many people missed her.
Micah Bell (39)
Micah is the last big bad guy in Red Dead Redemption 2, which makes sense. He gave everyone to the Pinkertons and got Dutch to betray his own family. Micah’s age is a little hard to figure out, but if you find a newspaper article, you’ll see that he’s only 39.
Micah seems to whine and complain even more than Uncle, so it’s hard to believe he’s older than Arthur. Micah, on the other hand, was a tried and true criminal. He turned on everyone he knew and told on friends to make a few extra bucks. He died alone, just like he had lived.
Arthur Morgan (36)
He is 36 years old. Arthur works as the main figure because of his age, as well as his personality and story. Arthur is at a turning point in his life. He has always had to deal with the results of what he did, whether it was losing his wife and son or not being able to be with Mary.
Even though Arthur sometimes feels like it’s too late to change, his best friends and kind strangers tell him that it’s never too late to do the right thing. One kind thing you do for someone else won’t change the world, but it will make you a better person.
Bill Williamson (33)
In the Red Dead Redemption 2 Guidebook, it said how old Bill Williamson was. He was born in 1866, so he was 33 when the episode took place. Bill is an interesting guy, given that until Kieran joins, most of the group uses him as a scapegoat.
He has a short fuse and is by far the most unpleasant person to talk to. Bill joined, just like everyone else. Dutch gave him a great chance and thought he could be useful. Bill would stay loyal until the battle over Beaver’s Hollow. Then, he gave up on Dutch’s cause and ran away to Mexico.
Charles Smith (Mid 20s – Late 20s)
No one knows how old Charles Smith is. But he has good survival skills because he left home when he was young, so it’s safe to say he’s in his mid to late 20s. Charles knew that gangs were usually out for themselves, so he was surprised by how nice Dutch was to his guys.
Charles always tried to get the gang to do things that would hurt the fewest people and cause the least amount of damage. Because of his life experience and view of the world, he was a great help to Arthur and John as they tried to do the right thing.
John Marston (26 – 34)
In RDR2, John Marston is 26 years old. John and Arthur are like two brothers, one younger than the other. At this point, John is much more reckless and impulsive, which keeps Arthur very upset. At the end of the story, when Arthur learns that John is the only family he has left, he starts to like John.
Arthur gave up everything, even his life, so that John could take his family away from a life of crime and live honestly. John didn’t take Arthur’s last piece of advice, which is too bad. He looked back, and he would have to pay for it in the end.
Molly O’Shea (Mid-20s)
Molly O’Shea was an Irish woman with a lot of fire. She was a member of the Van der Linde gang and Dutch van der Linde’s companion. Even though it’s not clear how old she was, it’s safe to say that when she died in 1899, she was probably in her mid-20s.
Molly had been to many places since she moved to the U.S., but she still had the innocence of a child, especially when it came to Dutch. Susan and Molly did seem to be a little bit jealous of each other. Molly is also said to have grown up in a rich family, which would explain her attitude and problems. She wanted to try new things, but all she got was pain and poverty.
Sean Macguire (Early 20s – Mid 20s)
Sean Macguire was between the ages of 20 and 30. He still had a bad attitude and was always eager to show what he could do. Lenny and Sean were good friends, and Lenny tried to teach Sean to read. Sean was the only one of the group that Dutch didn’t teach to read and write.
He ended up being just another loser in Dutch’s history. He joined the group when he was still young. Most of the time, Sean ended up being on his own and not with the group. He might have lived past the story if he had just stayed away
Sadie Adler (Mid 20s – Early 30s)
No one ever said for sure how old Sadie Adler is, but most people think she’s in her mid- to late-20s. It’s hard to say for sure, but it’s likely that she’s even older than Charles and John. Mrs. Adler and her husband had a happy life together until the O’Driscoll Boys killed him.
Sadie doesn’t have a lot of life experience, as shown by how shocked she is by the gang’s constant violence. But she wasn’t that closed off. She and her husband lived on the edge of the country. Sadie also doesn’t have the sun damage you might expect from all the years she worked outside in Funny Shooter.
Abigail Roberts (22 – 30)
During the main story, Abigail Roberts was 22 years old. When fans met Abigail for the first time in Red Dead Redemption, she was an older mother and wife who had grown up, so it was a pleasant treat to see her much younger and new to the life of an outlaw.
Abigail’s strength was shown throughout the story by the way she stood her ground and helped in any way she could. At the end of the story, Abigail showed that she was a skilled badass with a strong sense of right and wrong.
Tilly Jackson (Late Teens – Early 20s)
Tilly Jackson was between the ages of 19 and 21. She is the same age as Lenny, but she is a bit older and more worn out. Considering how she was raised, she had trouble with stress all through her childhood. When Dutch asked her to join the Van der Linde gang, her life got better, which isn’t true for many people.
Tilly was nice, gentle, and willing to forgive. Even after everything Anthony Foreman, her previous leader, did to her, she couldn’t bring herself to let Arthur kill him. She was the only one who left and never went back. Tilly’s story ended well.
Lenny Summers (19)
If you didn’t hang out at the camp and listen to what people were saying, you might not realize that Lenny isn’t even 20 years old. He is just a young boy who got himself into a lot of trouble with the Van der Linde gang. But what makes his friendship with Hosea Matthews stand out is that he is so young.
Hosea sees Lenny as a kid he never had, but Arthur sees him as his younger brother who needs to do better. Lenny was always trying to prove himself, which caused him to die too soon. When Lenny and Hosea died, there was a loss of childhood.
Jack Marston (8)
Before Red Dead Redemption 2, most people thought of Jack Marston as a smaller John Marston with a stronger sense of right and wrong. Arthur Morgan was a big part of Jack’s life. He taught him how to fish and what it means to be faithful.
Jack was the youngest member of the Van der Linde gang. He was only four years old. When he wasn’t being held for ransom, many people cared for him with love. By the time Red Dead Redemption takes place, Jack doesn’t remember much about the Van der Linde gang. Even with everything that happened, Jack grew up to be the same as them.
