Ray Knox was a Sr. detective with the NYPD until he was relocated to Chernerus to work with fellow peers on a confusing serial killer investigation that had been ongoing for several years. during the investigation the outbreak occured and as a result Ray lost his wife and son to the infected and people alike. Afterwards he moved from abandoned house to house, looting for food and shelter all so he could survive, any encounters he had with people in the past were unfriendly as most people lose their morale compasses when shit hits the fan.
Currently Ray Knox works as a military operative for the Shakhovka community, he loves the people and is dedicated to the cause. Glory to Shakhovka
Edit: Ray has since left Shakhovka with a heavy heart and he begins his journey as a solo wanderer once more.
Edit 2: Ray has since joined the Grizzlys and hopes to find a community within his new home.
