Nothing is known of Ernest's background. However, he seems to be friends with Aquila.
Ernest plays a minor role during the mission "You Shall Not Give False Testimony, Except for Profit", in which he shows himself to be a friend of Aquila by helping him up and trying to get him to fight John Marston. However, after Aquila has been defeated multiple times, Ernest pushes him away and is quick to buy Nigel West Dickens' miracle tonic.
Ernest can also be found in and around Ridgewood Farm , where he loiters around the barn and farmhouse. He has also been known to frequent MacFarlane's Ranch, as well as other locations throughout New Austin.
