[Spoilers] What's up with the Blind man?

Recommended Posts

Journey_95

Is he basically RDR2's version of the Strange Man? He knows stuff he shouldn't

...metaphorically speaking?

Possibly.

 

...as in "it's him?"

Doubtful.

Although he does say in RDR1 that he has gone by many names, so maybe many people too?

 

 

The strange mans cabin is in the game. The paintings in his cabin change as the story progresses. He can even be seen standing behind Arthur while looking in the mirror in his cabin (but when you turn around he is not there, and even crazier when you look back at the mirror he isn't there anymore either.

So I'm thinking that's probably a no.

Yeah definitely meant metaphorically speaking, the Strange Man is definitely even more supernatural. I saw the easter egg of him in RDR2 too, creepy

True lol

 

I read somewhere that he was sort'of seen as a St. Peter figure in RDR1. Like he guards the gates to heaven, but if that were true then I would have to assume, how you completed his missions would have played a part in how the ending of the game turned out. Even if it were something simple like changing the words on John's grave marker. Based on that, I personally think he is more like Death himself, or the ferryman at the River Styx.

 

I say that because it seems he doesn't really care what actions you take or where you go after death, even in spite of the fact that he refers to himself as an "accountant of sorts". What he does seem concerned with is that you get there in the end.

 

Kind of reminds me of an old coal miners campfire song...

 

"You load sixteen tons, what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in debt.
Saint Peter don't you call me 'cause I can't go.
I owe my soul to the company store."
