Clay is Rigger’s best friend, and besides rat hunting, much of his time is spent trying to keep Rigger out of trouble. When he first met Rigger, they were working on an off shore oil rig. Their boss wanted to fire Rigger for being reckless, but Clay fought for his friend and kept him employed until they could strike out on their own. Clay’s motto is “my way or the highway,” except with Rigger. Clay’s got a soft spot for him, and Rigger knows exactly how far he can push him.
