Kurt Lauterback is a minor character featured in Red Dead Redemption.


Kurt is an immigrant from Germany, as evidenced by his name and accent. Judging by his attire, he seems to be fairly well-to-do. He has a relative, Charlotte Lauterback, buried in Blackwater's cemetery.


Kurt can most often be found playing Poker in the Blackwater saloon, where he plays the piano. However, he has been known to frequent MacFarlane's Ranch.


  • Like Herbert Moon, there are two Kurt Lauterbacks. One plays poker, while the other is the piano player.
  • Kurt wears the same outfit as Virgil Scoggins, with the exception that Virgil wears a neck tie rather than a bow-tie.
  • Kurt shares a character head with Ira Shelton.
