Jack Marston isn’t the most important character in Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption, but the mystery of who his parents are has been baffling players for a while now.
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…
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.”
Javier Escuella might be Jack Marston’s real father This is a theory I can get behind #RDR2

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.”
It’s an interesting point!

Who do you think Jack Marston’s real father is? Javier, or John?
someone really needs to write a fanfic about a grown up Jack Marston running into some of still living gang members from #RDR2
