** [[BigBad Major Thomas Magruder]] is feverishly seeking a legendary lost city of gold called Quivira, and murders or tortures anyone who gets in his way. His defining moment came in a flashback to years before the events of the game, when he came to a small homestead out in the plains belonging to a benevolent doctor who helped the nearby Apaches. When the Apache chief tells Magruder that his lust for the treasure will lead to his doom, he coldly shoots him, then beheads the doctor. When one of his own soldiers protests his actions, Magruder shoots him, too. In present, Magruder simply attempts to wipe out the Apaches and whoever else he deems an obstacle to his hunt for gold. Magruder is a man singularly devoted to satisfying his own {{greed}}, no matter who gets in the way.

** [[BigBad Major Thomas "Tom" Magruder]] is a [[CorruptCorporateExecutive railroad tycoon]] who has taken large parts of the Western United States from the First Nations and Government, [[GoldFever feverishly seeking a legendary lost city of gold gold]] called Quivira, murdering and murders or tortures torturing anyone who gets in his way. His defining moment came in a flashback Years prior to years before the events of the game, when he as a [[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar Confederate]] Major, Magruder came to a small homestead out in the plains belonging to a benevolent doctor who helped the nearby Apaches. When the Apache chief tells Magruder that his lust for the his treasure will lead to his doom, he coldly shoots destroy him, then beheads the doctor. When one of his own soldiers protests his actions, Magruder shoots him, too. and [[OffWithHisHead decapitates the doctor]], [[BadBoss shooting one of his men]] for protesting his actions. In the present, Magruder simply attempts hires soldiers and henchmen to wipe out anyone who gets in his way. When his henchman Reverend Reed fails to find a cross in the steamboat massacre at the beginning of the game, Magruder [[EarAche cuts his ear off]] as punishment. In addition to taking their lands, Magruder also takes to taking the Apaches as slaves and whoever else he deems an obstacle to using them as target practice for his hunt soldiers. When [[PlayerCharacter Colton "Cole" White]] confronts him for gold. his crimes, Magruder dismisses the innocents he massacred as nothing. Ruthless and remorseless, Magruder is a man singularly devoted seeking to satisfying satisfy his own {{greed}}, no matter who gets in the way. he has to destroy.



And we don't know much about Hollister himself, apart from the fact that he led the attack on the steamboat at the beginning of the game ([[OffscreenVillainy even though we don't actually see him do this]]) and he's not even introduced until much later in the game, only to be killed off two missions later. If anything, it's as though he was only introduced so that the game could have a boss battle in which Cole re-obtains Ned's rifle.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Sergeant Hollister and the Renegades. The idea of an entire fort of U.S. Army soldiers having gone not only rogue, but totally insane ala ''Film/ApocalypseNow'', seems like an interesting concept to explore, except it's never explained ''[[NoodleIncident why]]'' they're like that, or why they would work for Reverend Reed, who is in turn working for a former Confederate officer (Thomas Magruder). Indeed, if it weren't for their association with Reed, they would just seem like a mere WackyWaysideTribe.\\\

* UnfortunateImplications: The game's portrayal of Native Americans and Chinese is quite...questionable. Some accuse the developers of using the period setting as an excuse to be racist.
** On the other hand, the game makes no claim at being realistic, and the portrayals are well within the boundaries of established SpaghettiWestern tropes.
