— John Marston killing some poor undead

John Marston is a former outlaw and murderer during the dying days of the Old West and the protagonist of hit videogame Red Dead Redemption. In the alternate timeline of DLC Undead Nightmare, John is pitted against an onslaught of an apparent zombie apocalypse.

John Marston was born in 1873. His father was an illiterate Scottish immigrant that was born on the boat into New York, while his mother was a prostitute who passed away during John's birth. He would later be sent to an orphanage but later escapes to join Duth van der Linde's gang. Dutch teached John how to shoot, read, and survive, before betraying him in his later years. John would end up hunting down his former gang members, being a Mexican revolutionary, before dying at the hands of the government.

In the DLC Undead Nightmare, John fights off a zombie apocalypse that has infected his family and the West. The story goes that when John gets back to Beecher's hope and reunites with his family, they were soon infected by a plague that turns everyone into flesh-eating undead. As John heads out to find a cure, he ends up rescuing various towns from the apocalypse, before finally stopping the ancient curse that caused it, thus saving his family and the West. A few months later, John is dead. In Escalera, his former friend Seth is shown stealing the ancient mask, causing the dead to rise again, including John Marston. However, as John was buried with Holy Water, he returns as an undead with a man's soul and intellect, allowing the player to still play as him.
