Before the main storyline, Chris showed up in Widow's Patch and took control of the town from Sheriff O'Grady. His size and boisterousness attracted many lowlifes to him, and he was soon in command of a small army of misfits and small-time crooks. He abstained from killing the Sheriff, presumably due to the charms of his daughter, Katie O'Grady.
Ugly Chris is encountered during the mission "Ugly Streetfight". When Red Harlow arrives in town looking to collect the bounty on Bloody Tom, one of Chris' men, Udo Kang shoots Red's dog, killing it. The resulting gun battle leaves Chris and his entire gang dead.

- Ugly Chris has a red bandage wraped around his right wrist and part of his right hand, very similar to Red Harlow's bandage used to cover up his scorpion scar.
- In Red Dead Revolver, it seems as though Ugly Chris is black, but in Red Dead Redemption, he is changed to white.
- He is listed in Sheriff Bartlett's Journal under the Ugly Chris' Gang section.
