Although it’s commonly accepted – and even encouraged by the games – that Jack is the child of John Marston and Abigail, some people are starting to believe there might be more to his lineage than meets the eye…

A Reddit user by the name of Titus1909 posted the following image, under the title “Is Javier the father of Jack Marston?”

Is Javier the father of Jack Marston? from r/reddeadredemption

The side-by-side of the two characters definitely highlights a pretty uncanny similarity, and the text comparisons definitely lean towards some pretty big hints about lil Jack, and it’s spawned a load of theories.

One Redditer commented on the thread: “Besides him being attractive as hell, he’s also more of a father to Jack than John is for a good portion of the game. His interactions with the kiddo is sweet enough to give me diabetes.”

Another added: “I think he is John’s and they fully intend Jack to be his kid regardless, but they throw these tidbits in there just to make people talk.”
