Character Bio

Blue Duck photo
Blue Duck is a fictional character, a biracial Indian appearing in two books in the Lonesome Dove series. He is the son of Buffalo Hump and a kidnapped Mexican woman. There is some evidence that there was a real Blue Duck, but his character was fictionalized for the Lonesome Dove Saga. Buford 'Blue' Duck, a Comanche, was a confidant of Belle Starr who was convicted of murder in the 1880s and died around 1894.

In Comanche Moon

Blue Duck begins this story as a member of his father's Indian band, showing himself to be repeatedly defiant of this father. Eventually, Buffalo Hump banishes him from the tribe. Blue Duck then gathers his own group of bandits, committing attacks against the white man on his own. Several years after he is banished, his uncle visits him to tell him that Buffalo Hump has left the tribe to find a good place to die. Determined to take revenge, Blue Duck tracks him down and kills him by piercing his hump with a spear.

In the film version, Blue Duck is played by Adam Beach.

According to aurthors James D. Horan & Paul Sann in The Wild West 1954, Belle Starr was married to an Indian named Blue Duck in 1876, not long after she married again to Sam Starr.
