Introduction

"But I came and I was nothing And time will give us nothing
So why did you choose to lean on A man you knew was falling?"

APPEARANCE:

  • Stats: 6'3, Dusty Brown Hair, Gray Green Eyes, 195lbs
  • Description: The once sloppy drunk seems to have turned a corner. No longer a ball of grease and sweat, his hair is growing long but typically combed. His beard full but trimmed. Most always seen in the same few outfits, a button down, a hooded sweater, or a leather jacket over nice jeans.

PERSONALITY:

Ray is a quiet man, often focused on the task at hand. He's not overly social, and though he has no issue speaking with others, rarely goes out of his way to. His voice is typically gruff and mellow, prone to sarcasm and dry humor. Blunt, honest, and typically without fear for calling others out on their bullshit. His voice is tinged with a Mississippi accent, which comes out in full strength when he's angry or drunk.

RP Hooks
  • LONE WOLF: He's not incredibly sneaky, nor does he care to be. In the outskirts of town, or wherever wolves can roam, he sleeps in Urhan. A shaggy black wolf that looks incredibly mean.
  • ONE FOR YOU, ONE FOR ME: He's been found on more than one occasion completely passed out drunk in public. Though the past few months Ray has gotten clean and sober. His appearance has shaped up, he's rarely with alcohol (though slip ups have happened), and instead is seen popping a pill from a medicine bottle a few times a day.
  • BOOKS: Research runs deep with this one. When he isn't working at Three Lives & Co. bookstore, he's deep in the stacks of the occult, seeking answers. After connecting with Ryan Troha he has begun a position at Penumbra Hall, organizing the aisles and taking care of unwelcome spirits that slip in.

Quotes
  • PC: Quote.
  • "I trust Ray. I trust him with my life, I just don't know that I trust him with his." - Zoe St. Clair
  • "There’s this Melville quote, goes like ‘among the fibers that connect us are sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, they come back to us as effects’ or something like that. Quote always resonated with me and the memory of it came back like an avalanche after meeting Ray. I’ve never been so terrified of someone. I’ve never been so at ease with someone." - Marcy Chalmers
