Events of Red Dead Redemption 2

Leigh Gray is first seen in "The New South", where he and Deputy MacGregor are seen transporting criminals to the sheriff office in Rhodes and are waiting for a train to pass. Dutch, Arthur and Hosea notice that Josiah Trelawny is inside the wagon. Dutch greets him and decides to ask Gray about Josiah's arrest. Gray tells him that Trelawny was accused of running a gold mining investment scam and Dutch lies to Grey that there must be some kind of mistake and that Trelawny is a magician. However, during the talk a criminal is seen lock picking the paddy wagon and three other men also flee and jump on the train. Dutch offers to help him capture the Anderson boys, sending Arthur to chase after them with Archibald MacGregor. After the Anderson boys are caught, Dutch successfully persuades Sheriff Gray to have Trelawny released.

Soon afterwards, Dutch manages to get Gray drunk and tricks him into deputizing himself, Arthur, and Bill. Gray sends Archibald MacGregor to help and asks them to take down some Braithwaite-affiliated moonshiners.

Later on, after Arthur and Sean burn down the Gray tobacco fields, the Grays finally see through the Van der Linde gang's duplicity. They plan a trap for them, inviting them to act as security. Micah takes them up on the offer, bringing Bill, Sean and Arthur along. The four are ambushed on the streets to Rhodes, where Sean is immediately shot dead by a sniper, leaving the other three to fight the Gray hired guns. Bill is captured during the battle, leaving Arthur and Micah to do most of the fighting. After they eliminate the vast majority of the Gray henchmen, only Leigh Gray and his deputies remain. Arthur and Micah demand the release of Bill, to which Sheriff Gray exits his office with Bill held hostage, only to be shot dead by Arthur.



While Leigh is quite boastful about his family, he himself is shown to be an oaf and a drunk, as well as being somewhat corrupt. He is quite inept at his position of sheriff as evident to not only his drunkenness and stupidity, but also to his own blurting of "I can't have more scandal!" during the Anderson Boys escape.


Leigh has light red hair and a long, ginger mustache. He wears a checked shirt with a tan vest, a red neckerchief and, of course, a sheriff badge.
