Joan Gray, also known as Joany, is an unseen character mentioned in Days Gone.
Joany was born in the early 1980s and grew up in Oregon, United States. Little else is known of her early life, although as an adult she developed a passion for motorcycles. She would later meet William "Boozer" Gray, the Sergeant-at-Arms for the Mongrels Motorcycle Club in Farewell, and the two would soon get married. The couple planned on purchasing a home together near Berley Lake.
Unfortunately, one night while the two were riding Boozer's motorcycle along Highway 97, they were struck by an oncoming driver who was heavily under the influence of alcohol. Joany was killed on impact, while Boozer and the occupants of the other vehicle were largely unharmed. Enraged, Boozer murdered the intoxicated driver and his passengers in an act of retaliation for his wife's death.
Members of the motorcycle club were called to the scene and arrived before the police. Boozer's best friend Deacon St. John had to physically drag him from the scene as they were forced to leave Joany's body behind. They later provided Boozer with an alibi, sparing him from being convicted of manslaughter.
The outcome of the police investigation into Joany's death as well as the deaths of the other vehicle's occupants is unknown. It is possible police believed Joany was riding alone when she was struck, and the impact killed everyone involved. Joany was later buried in Pioneer Cemetery.
Events of Days Gone
After settling in the Lost Lake encampment, Deacon can find a photograph of Joany and a motorcycle among Boozer's possessions in their cabin. She is mentioned several times during conversations between the two, including one where Deacon reveals that Boozer descended into severe alcoholism following her death. According to Deacon, after watching Boozer seemingly try to drink himself to death, he picked up a bottle of whiskey and drank its entire contents. Deacon told Boozer that if he planned on drinking himself to death that he would join him, because "that's what brothers do." The interaction inspired Boozer to sober up and he began to recover from his grief.
- In the photograph of Joany kept by Boozer, she is shown to have possibly owned a red motorcycle.
- Her grave can be located in Pioneer Cemetery and visited by Deacon. Similarly, a memorial marker can be found at the location of her death along Highway 97.
