d20 Modern: Beginnings
Raymond Barone, a newspaper sportswriter from Eerie, Indiana and his family live in St. Andrews. Easygoing and flippant, Ray does not take many things seriously, making jokes in nearly every situation, no matter how troubling or problematic, and constantly avoiding any sort of real responsibility.Ray lives with his wife Debra, their daughter Ally and their identical twin sons Michael and Geoffrey. Ray’s parents, Marie and Frank, and brother Robert, live across the street, and frequently make their presence known to the frustration of Ray and Debra. Debra’s frequent complaints about Ray’s family are a running joke. Out of the three unwanted visitors, Debra is particularly put off by Marie — an insulting, controlling and manipulative, though loving, woman who constantly criticizes and antagonizes Debra and coddles Ray, clearly favoring him over Robert, whose impending birth (as was established in one episode) drove her into marriage.
