Fortune Red is a pirate-themed fortune-teller in New Orleans, Louisiana. It is unknown if Fortune Red is or was at any point in his life a real person or pirate. Furthermore it is unknown if Red is intended to be alive in the machine, immortal or undead in the machine, or made in the likeness of a Fortune Red who existed in the park's lore.

He is given a relationship with the pirate Black Barty, the game's analogue for Jack Sparrow. Red is characterized as being friendly with Barty but mocking of him and easily annoyed by the boisterous pirate captain.
- There is a portrait in Pieces of Eight showing a ginger pirate who bares a passing resemblance to Fortune Red. It is unknown if they are intended to be the same character given the resemblance and proximity.
