Making his debut in the series' premiere episode, "Pilot", in the series' first season, Ron plays the role of the former President of the Sons of Anarchy, California Redwood Originals MC. Playing a recurring role through the series' first, second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth seasons, he initially appeared as a main character and protagonist in the first three seasons, gradually became the primary antagonist of Season 4, the secondary antagonist of Season 5 and a secondary antagonist-turned-anti-hero of Season 6, and, due to his actions in the later seasons and previously unknown involvement with Gemma in the death of John Teller, the secondary antagonist of the entire series.
