Ray was the Elemental Master of Fire, the husband of Maya and the father of Nya and Kai, the latter of whom would inherit his abilities. Ray fought alongside the other Elemental Masters and his wife in the Serpentine War, which would see the people of Ninjago battling the Serpentine. Eventually, the Serpentine were sealed away in various tombs, with Ray imprisoning Pythor and the Anacondrai in their tomb.
As a young man, Ray was very poor, wearing ragged clothes and going door to door selling custom made weapons to make a living for himself. At some point, he discovered his powers and became the Elemental Master of Fire.
One night, Ray and Wu were searching for samurai bandits, but when he spotted the silhouettes of scarecrows, he mistook them for the bandits and sprung into battle. The next morning, he was forced to apologize to the farmers that owned the scarecrows for his mistake.
Ray fought alongside Wu and Garmadon in many battles. Like his son, Kai, he was headstrong and reckless, but a skilled fighter and a loyal ally. Ray eventually became one of Master Wu's most trusted friends.
Decades after the events of the Serpentine War, he fathered Kai and Nya with his wife, Maya. Later, Wu wanted him to become a ninja, though he declined to stay at home with his wife to take care of their children and work at Four Weapons Blacksmith. As such, the old master entrusted him with the map to the Golden Weapons, made in the event of Wu's demise to ensure that the powerful artifacts could be retrieved in times of darkness. Later, Ray and Maya betrayed Wu and the rest of the Elemental Alliance, joining the cause of the Time Twins. When he and wife went missing under mysterious circumstances, Kai and Nya became the new owners of his blacksmith shop.
Following the defeat of Clouse, Wu would suffer a horrible nightmare in which he saw Ray and his wife Maya forging something terrible in a pit of flame and smoke.
