I Know You by Misty-Mirage I Know You by Misty-Mirage
From Red Dead wiki:
"Marston encounters a strange man south of Mescalero, who seems to know a lot about Marston's past and claims to know him from his days running with the Dutch van der Linde Gang. However, the strange man is very coy and never reveals how he knows Marston.

He then asks Marston to complete a couple of tasks, both of which turn out to be moral dilemmas. And the Strange Man's tone hints at what course of action he believes Marston will take in each case."

I:heart: RDR

Now I'm not really religious per say, but I believe the man was an angel sent by God to test John's soul/morality and determine if he was worthy of forgiveness in the eyes of God for his past sins.  I mean the question is, can a bad man have a good soul?

Interesting theory! I love all the speculation surrounding this plot line. I agree, it was definitely a test for John.

I bet the strange man was up at that same place watching when John got killed, knowing he would, but he couldn't do anything.... or something.

None remain who know~

Creepy guy. I don't know if he is God, Devil, John's subconsciousness or a ghost. I deduce he is an angel, or Death. Also, did someone notice that during the (SPOILERS AHEAD) during the last Dead Eye segment, when John is about to die, you can see the Strange Man on a roof behind the government agents? And when John shoots him on the last I Know You storyline (the one where he meets the Strange Man on a hill at his farm), he shoots four times, each bullet for the death of a family member: Uncle, John himself and Abigail. But the fourth bullet, which was going to be Jack, gets stuck inside the bullet chamber, making Jack live.. odd indeed, I found this in Red Dead Wiki... (SPOILER END), anyway, I really want to know who this guy is... Also, you can find pictures of him in Jack and John and Abigail's rooms, above the beds... o.O

Do you see the Strange Man anywhere after the last encounter with him? Like, maybe him hidden in a cutscene, or something? Just curious, I'm pretty sure you don't though.

Great work here :)
I believe he's John's conscience. John is starting to realise how difficult the path towards redemption is and this man represents the new life he hopes to build for himself and his family and the easy, morally weak life he has led up until this point. He represents both because most people are neither good nor evil, but a thin mixture of both.

If it was a real morality test, John would have the possibility of being spared. But it's not and John dies either way.
The Strange Man is a manifestation of John's own troubled psyche, nothing more.
At least, that's my two cents ;)

According to some Tv Tropers,he's the devil.During Old West times,people often imagined the devil as a elegant man with a moustache and top hat!

some say he God. Because he talks about "how I wish my son was like you (Jesus) or (anticrist) but still I think it mite be a angel because he tells Marston to do nice things not mean things u know. Idk but I think he God or something like that you know!

This is awesome! You've captured the atmosphere very well. Personally I though he was the grim reaper. Maybe because the last place he appeared was later the gravesite... among other things. Oh man I love this game. :D

Yeah I'm leaning towards grim reaper/death too. He knows a lot about fate....
John: I'll let the proper authoriteies judge my morality.
Stranger: Oh they will, and they shall.
Me: CREEEEPPYY!

Right, that would make sense.
He says to John earlier, "I hope my son turns out just like you," or something like that. So that's a little strange.
