John Marston was born in 1873. His mother was a prostitute who died during childbirth, his father was a Scottish immigrant that died of unknown reasons, also he was blinded in a bar fight.
At the age of 8, John was sent to an orphanage after his father’s death. Later, at the age of 17, John was “adopted” by Dutch Van der Linde, the gang leader, that taught him how to read, write, shoot and survive.
Later… at the beginning of the game, in 1906, John Marston gets seriously wounded in a bank robbery with his gang. He gets abandoned by the members of his gang and so he decides to quit the outlaw lifestyle and buys a ranch along with his wife, Abigail Marston and his son, Jack Marston.
He also had a daughter that died of unknown causes as it is mentioned in the game.
After tons of attempts of reformation, Marston is still seen as an outlaw in the eyes of the government, which leads to terrible events...
Marston is a terrific gunslinger and in-game he will face tons of opponents which will be defeated by his shooting skills.
John is a great man that knows how to struggle and survive this wild life of his, and even though he was an outlaw his heart is good.

This unlike others is a true character that you can get attached to while paying a good quality Video Game.
