Emily Ross as she greets Jack Marston

Emily Ross is a minor character featured in Red Dead Redemption. She appears in the stranger side-mission "Remember My Family".


She is the wife of Edgar Ross, the Director of the Bureau of Investigation. As far as her character is concerned, Emily appears to be a rather matronly, kind and somewhat worrisome middle aged woman. It is clear she cares for her husband very much.


Emily makes her first and last appearance in the final mission of the game, when Jack Marston sets out to find Edgar Ross. The government agent Jack first talks to in Blackwater, Howard Sawicki, directs him to Ross's cabin out on Lake Don Julio, where he is spending his retirement years with his wife. Jack first meets Emily on the cabin's porch, where she vents her worries to him about her husband. Jack asks where Ross is now and Emily tells him that he had gone duck hunting with his brother, Phillip, on the Nuevo Paraíso side of the San Luis River. Before leaving, Jack somewhat ominously assures Emily the he's sure her husband will be "just fine", foreshadowing Ross's imminent fate.


Oh, that husband of mine. That Bureau just won't get its talons out of him even though he's retired!
