Graham Greene as Ray Corngrower
His early life was idyllic or at least to his young mind it was. Too young to realize that it was the tribe who fed his family because though his father worked long and hard as a construction worker, the whiskey bottle had more allure than being a responsible father and family man. The last morning Ray saw his father, he had kissed Ray and held him almost uncomfortably close. Ray would think about that moment many times in his life and wondered if his father knew that he would never see his son again. That evening his father didn’t come home. His mother thinking that he had stopped off at the bar again was surprised when two gray haired ladies from The Council of Beloved Women arrived instead. One of them took the toddler Ray outside and let him bury his face in her ample bosom while his mother screamed and cried inside the old house. Six months later his mother died of cancer and Ray started the long journey to adulthood being passed from one Creek family to another.
By the time he was in grade school he had grown withdrawn and silent from the children teasing him and calling him “Orphan.” It was only natural that he chose the brotherhood of law enforcement to be his surrogate family.
