The fastest of a lost generation, Ray may be the last of the palladium-based electro-mechanical switch runners. He still moves with blinding speed; in his prime he was able to traverse a one-acre data-center in 10-millisecond bursts, gathering and delivering at-risk bits in a blur of attitude and semi-molten metal. During downtime, Ray enjoys community theater, and recently wowed the critics in a production of The Wizard of Oz. Originally cast as the Tin Man, he convinced the director to give him the Scarecrow role instead, on the strength of his hoofing.
