Reverend Swanson is a character that appears as a Companion in Red Dead Redemption 2.

He is a member of the Van der Linde Gang.

A former clergyman now lost to debauchery, Swanson has fallen a long way from the standards he once set himself and struggles with many demons.

He started using morphine to ease some back pain a few years ago and it quickly took a desperate hold on him. A beaten man who has lost his self-esteem, direction and most of his religion, his failings are made all the worse as he is very much aware of them.

If he hadn't saved Dutch's life in the past, it's unlikely the gang would have kept him around for this long.
