Aye, got no tongue, past owner cut it out. He can be a pretty feisty one so can't say I blame 'em for it. I can just picture the bastard givin' lip, probably woulda done the same myself... I tell ya, I need to make my money back somehow, don't care if I gotta make bonemeal outta the good-for-nothing meat sack.

Bar fly

Ray is a Unique Recruit. He is a mute slave who can be bought for 1,000 Cats from Bar fly at either Eyesocket in the Stormgap Coast, or from the Slave Markets in the South Wetlands. Until recruited he is a member of Outlaw faction. Purchasing Ray reduces the player's relations with the Slave Traders by 5.

Ray is mute because he has no tongue. He can't interact with any shopkeepers or other non-player characters. Although dialogue might trigger on him if someone runs up to talk to him (freed slaves, bandit leaders, for example [this is technically a bug]).

He starts with Hive Prisoner Shackles which are unlocked and can be removed. He also starts with the 'obedient slave' task which means nothing because he is owned by the player faction.

They wear no armour.
