Sitting Duck is a ruler in the Industrial Age, being the first to be introduced. He is the tribal leader of Okahe and the only province owner other than Barthelemy Philipeaux to use Brave Warriors and Mounted Braves.
Sitting Duck's tribe has greatly inferior technology to the player. Should the player obtain Okahe by force, his tribe will attack them. However, if the player acquired Okahe through negotiation, he will aid the player with diamonds.
He is based on Sitting Bull, a Lakota leader who revolted against the American government. His name is also an idiom describing a helpless person.
