Personality: Grey is goofy on the surface, tormented on the inside. He makes light of everything as a joke, but deep down feels a lot of self doubt. This doubt stems from treatment he received on his home world as he was viewed as a weakling. Grey learned that it was just easier to laugh it all off than to admit his own doubts. Beneath it all, Grey is a thoughtful and caring individual. His attitude belies the intelligence and sincerity within. Grey is a fierce fighter, and a trustworthy friend. He will go to any lengths to protect his loved ones and teammates.
An inborn resentment of technology is within Grey. He resents any use of technology as he views it as a crutch. This is something he is slowly overcoming, as his teammates, and even his mother, are forced to use technology to survive.
Background: Grey’s home world Spiritus was destroyed by Galactus. He watched as the god destroyed ound:all that he loved. In a desperate attack, Grey flung himself at the giant. Galactus, impressed by Grey’s might, spared the Dysian. Galactus hurled Grey across the cosmos, hoping the young warrior would mature into the herald Galactus desired.
Before this, Grey had a troubled past. He was supposedly the chosen inheritor of a mighty position on his home world. But Grey’s lack of control over his own powers brought shame on his community. Grey’s sister, Seehra, was the inheritor of this tremendous power. Their relationship was great at first, with Grey watching over his young sister and she looking up to him. But there came a point where Seehra rapidly began to change as she took on her new role in the Dysian hierarchy. She began to hate whom she perceived to be weak, including Grey. Their disagreement lead to Grey being sentenced to exile from the Dysian city. When Galactus attacked, Seehra and the council fled the planet.
Grey is alone on a new world. He is surrounded by people he doesn’t understand, but he will make the best of it, and he will make sure his new home survives. He lost everything in the attack from Galactus, he won’t lose it all again.
