Ray Mathison is a survivor appearing in Dead Rising and Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop. He is found in Colby's Movieland during the scoop A Strange Group. He has been held captive by the True Eye cult.
Ray has been captured by the True Eye cult and is about to be sacrificed by Sean Keanan, leader of the cult, when Frank arrives to their rescue. After Sean is killed, Frank frees Ray and the four other hostages. He then convinces them to follow him back to the Security Room.
After being rescued, he will wait in the room with the blue door. When Ronald Shiner complains about the lack of food, he rallies up the other survivors in the same room, including Ray, to head out and look for food. If Frank does not stop Ronald's mutiny, Ray will leave the Security Room along with the other survivors in the same room. They will no longer count towards the number of rescued survivors.
