Septon Ray was one of the supporting characters of the TV series, Game of Thrones. He was a kind and eccentric septon who presides over a small village in the Riverlands. He was also a veteran of the War of the Ninepenny Kings as well as a former mercenary who redeemed himself and served the Faith of the Seven.
He was portrayed by Ian McShane.
In his dark past, Ray used to be soldier who committed horrific crimes in the name of war. However, after the harrowing incident in which he killed the boy in front of his mother, guilt overpowered Ray, and he set on the path to atone for his sins.
In the present, Ray is a wise, kindly man who dedicates his life to helping others. He reveals to his group that his main goal now is to "bring a little goodness into the world", if only to make up for the wrongs he committed in the past. He is not too proud to admit that he will be haunted by his terrible deeds for the rest of his life, including the screams of a mother whose child he had murdered. Ray firmly believes in redemption at any time, as shown when he tells his congregation that it is never too late for someone to turn their lives around.
