Alden Pearce in a gunfight.

Alden Pearce is a minor character featured in Red Dead Redemption.


Alden is a lawman who operates in the New Austin region.


Alden can often be found arm wrestling at Plainview.

He can also be seen wandering the streets of Armadillo, where he often pins up the wanted posters on the train station and then continues to patrol. When Marston brings live bounty to Armadillo jail, he assists with the transfer of the criminal. However, if Marston has a bounty, Alden will track him to multiple locations around New Austin.

He may also appear in random encounters in which he will require Marston's assistance to transport one of his captured outlaws.
