When you enter the saloon, you’ll have the chance to meet two interesting strangers: Marjorie and Bertram.

Meet Bertram and Marjorie!

As you greet Marjorie, you’ll trigger a cutscene which reveals why she is arguing with Bertram. The latter stranger is a friend of another character known as Magnifico. Both of them used to work for Marjorie, performing various shows.

Now, they left Marjorie behind and they set their own show, thus betraying her. Obviously, Marjorie is not happy about this and she wants to find Magnifico. But to do so, she has to find his location. And Bertram is the one who knows it.

Unfortunately, you are the one who has to find Magnifico, once you defeat Bertram in a fist fight.

Unlike Tommy, your rival from Americans at Rest story-mission, Bertram is more accessible. Press ▢/X to block Bertram’s attacks just before they hit you, then hit him (O/B) while he is disoriented.

After you beat Bertram, you must find Magnifico’s location, which is marked on your minimap and also on our map above, by Part 2.

When you approach the marked location, look for Magnifico’s camp in the woods. It should look like this.

Magnifico’s Camp

The little man will obviously refuse to follow you back to Marjorie, for various reasons. He claims that she is a succubus and that they had a dispute in the past.

The moment the cutscene ends, get ready to run after Magnifico. The half-man is quite fast and he sure has some tricks up his sleeve.

Start chasing him following the colored clouds and your minimap. Magnifico will start running towards the nearby river, then cross it. Keep chasing him on the other side and if you can’t find him, walk through the colored smoke clouds.

At some point, he will simply vanish, but if you look up you should see him in a tree. Check the image below.

Look for Magnifico up in a tree!

Approach him and he will jump down, after throwing another firecracker.

The race continues but this time towards the train tracks and the road. Where both of you meet Marjorie and Bertram! The final cutscene ends with the three performers heading to Saint-Denis.

Did you know? If you check the theater in Saint-Denis, the moment you finish Red Dead Redemption 2 The Smell of the Grease Paint Stranger Mission, you can see the show performed by Marjorie, Magnifico, and Bertram. Make sure you talk to the ticket taker first.
