Dell Hopkins

Dell Hopkins is a minor character featured in Red Dead Redemption.


Dell is a suited Blackwater lawman and a Sheriff. He is presumably someone of some influence within Blackwater, as he personally handles deals with the bounties brought in, alive or dead. Judging by what little we see of his personality, he is very eager and very zealous when it comes to his job.


Dell collects the Blackwater bounties and gives Marston his payment. After he pays Marston, he may smoke a cigarette in front of the Blackwater Hotel.

Dell is encountered during the mission "Spare the Rod, Spoil the Bandit", in which Dell accompanies Marshal Johnson, John Marston, Jonah, and Eli on their ride to Ridgewood Farm, as well as the battle with the Williamson Gang thereafter. He also assists the group with the second battle with the Williamson Gang that took place at Mercer Station.

Dell is also encountered during the mission "Great Men are Not Always Wise", in which he participates alongside Marston, Benton Manning, Edgar Ross, and Archer Fordham, as well as other agents, sheriffs and marshals in foiling the bank robbery committed by Dutch's Gang. He is one of the three men who enter the bank itself to free the hostages there, and he personally witnesses the confrontation between Dutch and John that results in the death of Muriel Scranton.

When turning in an outlaw for a lawman from the wildeness, Hopkins will be escort for the prisoner into the jail.
