French


Leander Holland, a.k.a. "French," is a minor character featured in Red Dead Redemption.

BackgroundEdit

French is a small-time career criminal, and is characterized as unkempt, aggressive, and witless. According to Irish, he met French along with Alwyn Lloyd (a.k.a. "Welsh") on the boat to America, and were 'thick as thieves', literally.

InteractionsEdit

French and his accomplice, Welsh, are in the middle of interrogating Irish by drowning him in a water trough. They accuse Irish of stealing their horses, and demand retribution. Irish claims he is innocent and that French was the one who stole the horses, although this is never proven. The three are interrupted by John Marston, sent by Nigel West Dickens to inquire with Irish about weaponry to assault Fort Mercer. Marston is forced to kill both Welsh and French in self defense.

Mission AppearancesEdit

TriviaEdit

  • Just like Welsh and Irish, his nickname is a direct reference to his heritage.
  • Ironically enough, his last name is Holland, a region divided in two provinces located in the Netherlands, another European country.
  • While it is stated that Irish met French on the boat over from Europe, French's accent is Cajun. John remarks on this after killing him and Welsh, telling Irish, "He didn't sound very French."
  • He is dressed similar to Irish, with the addition of a hat and a few other items.
  • Surprisingly, French can be disarmed, and even shot non-fatally. If disarmed, he will scream something along the lines of "I'm going to cut you like a pig, you son of a bitch!" but will not chase the player. He can, however, attempt to throw a punch at the player if they get close.
  • French seems to keep his revolver tucked at front of his pants rather than in the holster. The same goes for Irish.
  • Before completing A Frenchman, a Welshman and an Irishman, Holland can be seen standing inside the Armadillo saloon. Strangely, the player is able to walk straight through him.
