Biography in RDR 2 (click to enlarge)

Susan was one of the original members of the Van der Linde gang, alongside Dutch van der Linde, Hosea Matthews, and Arthur Morgan. She became romantically involved with Dutch. She spent long nights playing poker with the gang, often sitting in Dutch's lap. Their relationship later ended, and Dutch eventually moved on to another woman named Annabelle. Despite that, She remained a close associate to Dutch, gaining his respect and eventually became the gang's arbiter.

By 1899, alongside with the gang's cook Simon Pearson, Susan was in charge of setting up the camp every time the gang moved to a new place.
