Ray (レイ, Rei) is one of the main protagonists of The Promised Neverland and a former orphan from Grace Field House which he escaped from.


Ray has dark, somewhat messy hair that slightly cover's his left eye, he wears the standard white uniform. He has dark eyes and a slender appearance wearing usually a tired like look. Ray stopped wearing the standard uniform when he arrived at the shelter where he found new clothes. He began wearing long, black pants, a black shirt, and a long white-colored coat together with the old brown shoes he wore at the Grace Field House.


Ray's strengths are his cunningness, sharp wits, and his manipulative nature, he is also rational, logical and highly intelligent, Ray is an academically inclined young boy who excels in the orphanage's daily tests, he also uses his intelligence to decipher problems and to come out with solutions.

An outspoken person with little patience for inconvenience and silliness (like Emma's), he frequently loses his temper or is often left dumbfonded when people such as Emma displays reckless behaviour and intentions, noticeably when he considered Emma as an "airhead" when she intended to rescue every orphan from Grace Field.[5]

Ray attempting to burn himself

Ray attempts to burn himself, showing the courageous side of him.

According to the data Krone obtained, Ray is a person who gives up easily. This was specifically proven when after the plan of saving Norman got foiled, Ray lost hope and excluded himself from helping the others to devise another plan to escape.[6]

Ray also seems to be rather aloof and introverted, as he often excludes himself from playing with the other orphans and prefers to read a book instead. However, he is able to interact well with his fellow siblings and is fiercely loyal to them. Even if there are times when they do not get along, he still deeply cares about their well-being and would go to great lengths to keep them safe.

Ray is also noted to be extremely courageous and audacious. He willingly risked his life by lighting himself on fire in order to allow the plan of the orphans' escape to run smoothly; he sacrificed his life to lure the man-eaters away from the other orphans; he has the nerves to blow up B06-32 (a shelter vital to both the orphans and the man) in order to get Yuugo to cooperate with him and Emma.

Skills and AbilitiesEdit


Ray is an extremely intelligent and cunning strategist. He is a highly studious boy. Ray gains knowledge of the outside world from the books that he reads hence act as a trump card for the group during and after their escape from the Grace Field House. Ray is also extremely perceptive, as it is revealed that he realized years ago that the "orphanage" is, in fact, a farm, with the children as livestock, without ever having to actually see the reality with his own eyes (like Emma and Norman) in order to realize this fact.
Ray was also the first human (possibly aside from those working for the demons) to discover the demons' physical weakness (their middle eyes) and managed to get Emma to slay a wild demon before it ate him. Hence showing his capability in quick-thinking under pressure in a life-and-death situation l.

Enhanced StaminaEdit

Ray has proven himself to possess incredible stamina. He, together with Emma managed to follow Yuugo for hours without slowing down or losing track of him when they followed him to Goldy Pond.citation needed Ray was also able to outrun a wild demon for several minutes before Emma killed it.citation needed
