"We're close to the prison, ain't we? Maybe we ought to find higher ground and take a look at what's cooking down there."
—Raymond to Gabe[src]

Raymond Hilliard, also known as Ray, is a character first encountered in The Walking Dead: The Fall of the Governor. He is a resident of Woodbury and a member of the Woodbury Army. He is described as "a tall, sinewy, grizzled good old boy—with a Falcons cap pulled down low on his forehead over dark, cunning eyes."


Atlanta, Georgia

Nothing is known about Raymond's life prior to or as the outbreak began except he is a former football coach with a Class C college team out of north Atlanta.


Woodbury, Georgia

At some point after the outbreak began, Raymond became a supply runner in Woodbury.

The Fall of the Governor - Part Two

Raymond goes on a supply run for fuel, along with Gus Strunk, Sam Curtis, Rudy Warburton and Matthew Hennesey. When they return on Wednesday, they're exhausted but successful, having found an abandoned KOA campground in Forsyth with golf cars filled with almost one hundred and fifty gallons.

Raymond takes part in the prison assault. He survives the first attack and retreats along with the rest of the militia. The Governor orders Ray to pick a small group to scout the perimeter of the prison overnight and look for any weak spots in their compound as well as suspicious movement. Ray picks James Steagal, Daniel, Eric, Gloria Pyne and Gabriel Harris for his team.

At precisely 6:17 P.M. eastern standard time, two residents of the prison slip into the trees unnoticed by the militia while Raymond's scouting party still discuss what weapons to bring along, how much ammo, and what supplies. Ray uses an AR-15 with a high-capacity clip. He tells Jim to leave his backpack at the camp but Jim thinks he's talking about his small stainless steel flask full of cheap whiskey. Gloria asks if her Tec-9 is enough but Ray tells her to bring an extra magazine or two just in case. He orders Daniel and Eric to stay on their flanks and cover them from behind. The party travels light bringing only enough to defend themselves. They reach a clearing and Raymond pauses, then hand gestures everybody to get down. Gabe asks what's wrong and Ray says he hears something. They're close to the prison and decide to find higher ground to get a look at what's going on down there. Jim needs to pee and says he'll catch up with the others. Gabe and Ray lead the group back up the trail and wait at the top of the ridge for Jim to finish. After he takes a while Ray wanders back down to get him to finish up and finds Michonne and Tyreese hiding Jim's decapitated body.

After Eric is killed and Michonne gets away, Gabe orders Raymond and Daniel to keep an injured Tyreese alive and stop him from escaping. The two kneel on his back with the muzzles of their assault rifles held to his neck. The next morning, Raymond and Lilly Caul keep watch at the camp while the Governor and Gabe drive Tyreese up to the prison's gates.
