John Marston (Red Dead)

John Marston is a fictional character in the Red Dead video game series by Rockstar Games. Portrayed by actor Rob Wiethoff, he is the main protagonist of the 2010 video game Red Dead Redemption and its standalone expansion, Undead Nightmare, the secondary protagonist in its 2018 prequel, Red Dead Redemption 2. In his younger years, John was an outlaw who rode in the infamous Van der Linde Gang, committing multiple crimes. After the gang's downfall and eventual disbandment in 1899, he tries leaving his life of crime behind to become a rancher and a family man. After twelve years of hiding, he is located by the Bureau of Investigation in 1911 and forced to hunt down the last surviving members of his former gang in exchange for his family and his freedom; the character was well received, with many critics citing his maturity, moral complexity and ambiguity, quest for atonement as focal points of the first game. Wiethoff's portrayal of Marston was met with acclaim. Red Dead Redemption required a large amount of voice work.

The team felt that the amount of voice work required for Redemption had been achieved in Grand Theft Auto IV, with prior experience to such amounts dating back to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Bully. To cast the characters, the team held auditions. In the game, Rob Wiethoff portrayed John Marston; the character of John Marston was developed to be a "family man". The team developed him as a nuanced character, as opposed to a straightforward hero or villain, in order to provide an interesting experience. Wiethoff considered Marston to be determined about his goals. "He was a man about things," Wiethoff remarked. He gave the character a perceptible sense of weariness and unlike other gaming protagonists, Marston is not a hero but a criminal. Technical director Ted Carson felt that Marston became interesting due to the combination of cynicism and realism. Wiethoff felt that Marston was aware that his past actions were "wrong", resulting in his attempt to abandon his former life, he stated that Marston's early decisions in his life were a direct result of his need for acceptance.

"I don't know if he knew that what he was doing was wrong or not," Wiethoff said. Palmer felt that the characters of Marston and Williamson represented siblings in their former gang, while Dutch was more of a parental figure, he stated that Williamson is envious of Marston, despite Marston being his "moral anchor". Palmer felt that, after Marston left the gang, Williamson's life began to "tailspin" uncontrollably. "s John grew into a man who conquered by achieving, Bill fell into a man who achieved by conquering," said Palmer. When developing other characters, the team was inspired by various historical figures of the 20th century, including Frank James, Pearl Hart and Tom Horn. John's mother, a prostitute, died during childbirth and his father, blinded in a bar fight, died when John was eight years old. John spent a few years in an orphanage before running away; when John was threatened to be lynched after being caught stealing at the age of 12, he was saved by Dutch van der Linde, who took him into his gang and raised him.

When Abigail Roberts joined the gang and John fell in love and had a son, Jack. Prior to the events of the game, John is involved in the gang's botched ferry robbery in Blackwater, he is saved by Arthur Morgan and Javier Escuella. Once John has recovered, he joins the gang on some tasks before planning and executing a successful train robbery. After Jack is kidnapped, John takes part in the assault against the Braithwaites' manor and is present upon his return. During a failed bank robbery, John is incarcerated. Arthur and Sadie rescue him, much to the disdain of Dutch. John is left for dead by Dutch during a train robbery, but returns to the camp as Arthur is confronting Dutch and Micah; when Pinkertons invade the camp and John flee. John returns to his family at Arthur's wishes. Eight years in 1907, John finds honest work with Abigail, but when John fights back against outlaws threatening his employer, Abigail leaves with Jack. John works to get her back by earning enough money to buy a property at Beecher's Hope.

He builds a ranch with the help of Uncle and Charles Smith, while Sadie provides him with jobs to pay off his loans. After Abigail returns, John proposes. With Sadie and Charles, John attacks Micah's new gang. In a Mexican standoff, Dutch shoots Micah, letting John finish him off, before leaving. John and Abigail get married at their ranch. In 1911, U. S. federal agents Edgar Ross and Archer Fordham from the BOI command John to act as bounty hunter and apprehend his former outlaw friends. To both motivate and ensure that John will comply, the agents kidnap his son Jack and wife Abigail, hold them hostage, promising their release upon the completion of John's obligations. Beginning in the town of Blackwater, John boards a train headed west to the town of Armadillo, where he meets with a guide named Jake. Jake guides Marston to Fort Mercer, where Marion “Bill” Williamson and his own gang have taken refuge. Marston confronts and tries to reason with Bill outside the gates, but is instead shot down, suffering a bullet to the ribs.

He is found by a passerby: a woman named Bonnie MacFarlane. Bonnie takes the wounded Marston to her ranch in Hennigan's Stead.

Mary Linwood

Mary Linwood was a needle woman who exhibited her worsted embroidery or crewel embroidery in Leicester and London, was the school mistress of a private school known as Mary Linwood Comprehensive School. In 1790, she received a medal from the Society of Arts. Born in Birmingham in 1755, Mary Linwood moved to Leicester in 1764 with her family after her father, a wine merchant, became bankrupt, he died young and her mother opened a private boarding school for young ladies in Belgrave Gate. When her mother died Linwood continued it for 50 years. Linwood made her first embroidered picture when she was thirteen years old, by 1775 had established herself as a needlework artist. By the age of 31, Mary had attracted the attention of the royal family, she was invited to Windsor Castle by Queen Charlotte along with Mary Delaney and Mary Knowles whom the queen engaged with to show their work. For nearly seventy-five years Mary worked in worsted embroidery, producing a collection of over 100 pictures that specialised in full size copies of old masters.

She opened an exhibition in the Hanover Square Rooms in 1798, which afterward travelled to Leicester Square and Dublin. Mary Linwood's copies of old master paintings in crewel wool, in which the irregular and sloping stitches resembled brushwork, achieved great fame from the time of her first London exhibition in 1787, she met most of the crowned heads of Europe. She exhibited in Russia and Catherine the Great offered £40,000 for the whole collection while the Tsar offered her £3,000 for one example. However, Linwood refused. On one occasion her copy of a painting by the Italian artist Salvator Rosa sold for more than the original. One of her own designs, the Judgement of Cain, took ten years to complete, her exhibition in Leicester Square, was the first art show to be illuminated by gaslight and innovative theatrical displays with red and gold curtaining and one where it looked like peeping into a cottage window. The exhibition consisted of copies of paintings after such masters as Carlo Dolci, Ruisdael, Morland and Reynolds.

Linwood's subjects included Lady Jane Grey and Napoleon, whose portrait was said to have been done from life. He conferred on her the Freedom of Paris in 1803. So successful was Linwood in these annual shows attracting 40,000 customers a year, similar to Madame Tussauds, that she was able to commission John Hoppner to paint her portrait. By this time Hoppner was principal painter to the Prince of Wales and the most important portraitist in England. Ladies Monthly Review spoke of its "variety and graduation of tints cannot exceeds in effort by the pencil." John Constable's first commissioned work was to paint the background details in one of her works. Linwood is said to have refused an offer of 3000 guineas for her version of Carlo Dolci's Salvator Mundi, instead bequeathed it to Queen Victoria; the needle work pictures continued to be exhibited in Leicester Square in London continuously until her death in 1845. Charles Dickens mentions her in "A Plated Article", his description of a visit to Staffordshire, to be found in Reprinted Pieces: "Shade of Miss Linwood, erst of Leicester Square, thou art welcome here, thy retreat is fitly chosen!

I myself was one of the last visitors to that awful storehouse of thy life's work, where an anchorite old man and woman took my shilling with a solemn wonder, conducting me to a gloomy sepulchre of needlework dropping to pieces with dust and age and shrouded in twilight at high noon, left me there, chilled and alone. And now, in ghostly letters on all the dead walls of this dead town, I read thy honoured name, find that thy Last Supper, worked in Berlin Wool, invites inspection as a powerful excitement!" Credited as the most notable needlepainter of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, along with Mary Knowles and Anne Eliza Morritt, as few works survive of Mary Delany, embroidery historians unfailingly list Linwood as the artist who inspired the practice of Berlin wool work, today known as needlepoint. Linwood's exhibitions were contemporaneous with the rising popularity of Berlin wool work, until the Royal School of Needlework and the Arts and Crafts movement began to criticize Berlin wool work for having led to a loss of embroidery skills, in decades Linwood's notoriety was put in question due to its association with Berlin wool work.

Linwood's needlework exhibition was housed in the old Savile House on Leicester Square, which housed William Green's Pistol Repository and Shooting Gallery from 1836 to 1855 in a rebuilt section upstairs. The run-down building had been leased to associates at the turn of the century, it was subsequently refurbished from 1806 - 1809 by architect Joseph Page. Linwood displayed her work in a long gallery on the first floor from 1809 until her death in 1845. A legal dispute regarding the payment for renovations became a decades long battle, landed in The House of Lords in 1837; the House decided her partners, who were ordered to pay Page. In 1865, Savile House was destroyed by fire. Mary is confused with her niece Mary Linwood, a music composer and wrote a number of literary works including Leicestershire Tales. Four years before her death in 1845, Mary's works were still exhibited in London, she worked with stitches of different lengths on a fabric made for her in Leicester, had coarse linen tammy cloth prepared for her as well.

Her long and short stitches looked with silk for highlights. She in
