Character Bio

U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens photo
Raylan Givens was born and raised in rural Harlan County, Kentucky. Raised by his estranged father, Arlo Givens and his step-mother Helen Givens. His mother Frances Givens, sister of Helen, died sometime in his youth. Raylan had a turbulent childhood due to his out of control father, a career criminal. Raylan became familiar with Kentucky's criminal underworld through Arlo.
In his late teen years Raylan worked in the coal mines with his childhood friend Boyd Crowder. Crowder's family was also heavily involved in Kentucky's criminal underworld. Raylan is portrayed in flashbacks to this period by co-star Danny Wildman.
Driven by his distaste of life in Kentucky and his hatred of crime, Raylan would leave his home and become a Deputy US Marshal. Many of Raylan's childhood friends and family acquaintances would later be the very people he would pursue. He was assigned to many field offices across the US (one of which was in Texas) and spent time abroad. Raylan met and married an attractive court stenographer by the name of Winona Hawkins. He was eventually be assigned as a firearms instructor at the US Marshal's Academy in Glynco, Georgia alongside Art Mullen. When Winona divorced him due to his anger management issues he left Glynco and transfered to the Miami, Florida Field Office. He spent six years there hunting fugitives, and remains in this post when the pilot episode opens.
