Grell is a flamboyant, cheerful sadist who enjoys flirting, bloody situations, and fighting. He refers to himself with feminine pronouns and say feminine words, a lot. He appears to have a tenuous grasp on sanity at best, switching from childish irritation to murderous rage at the drop of a hat. Beauty is a big thing of his, so its wise not to mess that up for him. Beside his annoyance, he can serve anyone well yet has a urge of rule breaking to "spice up" things around the ship, to make things more fun for the crew or himself.
Grell always greets or talk to people in some way that just messes with them. Regardless of gender, he flirts with everyone and he even referred him and a man as Romeo and Juliet once, which did horrified the man. To people that have a higher rank than him, he still flirts with them in more of a respectful way like adding a nice comment to them during the job. When angry, he can get pretty insane like realistic threats with his chainsaw and if the situation is serious, plus the man who anger him has lost his usefulness, he'll be happy to take them out. Grell also enjoys children because they have interested him and plus he always wanted a child of his own. Long story short, he's a very feminine man who can go from childish annoyance to crazy flirt to insane, serial killing maniac.
Grell was born as an orphan, without knowing the identities of his parents and was left abandoned in a rose garden outside of Bellcius, having a vine of thorns wrapped around him. It appeared that someone was trying to kill him. He was founded and rescued by a traveler and took him to live in Bellcius. After a struggling life of poverty, he gained the interest of William T. Spears, a man who was not only the head of the Spears military family, but a famous assistant instructor at Bellcius academy. William, at first, despises Grell, but believed that he may be useful in someway. So, he took him into his house to taught him the important things of military, business, and fighting while making him work as his personal butler as well. For years, Grell served and worked for William quite well, even though he messed up things here and there. To society, they just saw him as someone who doesn't seem to be mentally right, since instead of a regular sword to protect the house, he uses a chainsaw, a gardening tool. Others find it strange, but Grell thinks it will be better than a sword. One day, Grell met a well known socialite and doctor, Angelina Durless, who is called Madam Red by the people of Ivona. Since William has taught him a lot and knows Madam Red, he sent Grell off to serve her for a while, but he told Grell to not cause chaos in the city and will punish him severely if he does.
However, the truth is that Grell knew of Madam Red before joining forces with her. One night, he caught her killing a woman, which somehow amused Grell. He discovered that the reason she was killing them is that they were old customers of Madam Red that got abortions from her plus they were sluts, according to her. Since she can't have children and hated others that are careless of them, Madam Red decided to murdered them. Grell decided to team up with the woman, if he can help with the killing because he found it fun. For the reasons of hiding himself in society, Grell disguised himself more human-like with black hair, normal teeth, and more proper appearance when he serves Madam Red. He also disguise his personality by acting childish, quiet and suicidal when he does something wrong, so nobody could tell it was him. Thus, the pair went under the alas as "Jack the Ripper"
The pair traveled around Ivona, tracking down the ones on Madam Red's "list." As they kill the women one by one, many groups of officers and soldiers hunted them down. This continued for months, women of Ivona slowly died as citizens either fear or ignore it. As the list was finished, the pair were caught by one of Ivona's youngest lords, Ciel Phatomhive and his butler, Sebastian. The pair decided to murder them before they report their true identities, but Madam Red struggled to handled the young child while Grell and Sebastian battled. Since Madam Red is Ciel's aunt, she treated him like her only child and refused to kill him. Grell believed that she lost her use and murdered her right in front of her nephew, who commanded Sebastian to murder Grell. The two butlers faced off in a deadly battle, and right before Sebastian kills Grell with his own weapon, William rescues him.
Grell was grateful for the rescue, but he wasn't off the hook. William told the other two that he'll handle Grell so he dragged him back by his hair to their home. Almost a year later, William figured out how to finish off Grell's punishment after beating him every other day. Since Grell got education and skill, he gave Grell his chainsaw, some francs, a journal, and a letter. He sent Grell out of Bellcius to get a job at a ship called The Fiertia, who is the home of the Brave Vesperia guild. William believed that the guild will teach Grell some rules and matters while he tries to patch up the murders. Grell doesn't really care, but if its to get away from William, it will have to do. After searching and traveling for months, he founded the ship and after some work, he got a job on it and it went on from there.
Sebastian Michaelis The "Romeo" in Grell's life. Even though Sebastian hates his guts and wishes him to be dead, that doesn't stop Grell from flirting and annoying him until he get kicked out of the kitchen. Grell hopes one day to at least kiss the man.
Uni Giglio Nero Even though these two talked for a few times, Grell sees her very quiet, but a good person. He somewhat sees her as the one who is very gentle and caring to about everyone on the ship. Deep down, he wonders what she is thinking most of the time.
William T. Spears Grell's boss in the Spears Military family. After Grell was adopted into the family, he has been serving William for a very long time. He shows affection to him, but William just keeps a straight face and returns to his books. He had to return back to home to take care of his father, who was the one who adopted Grell.
Etna Grell became interested in this demonic chef since both of them love theater and love to cause pain to others. Perhaps a "brother and sister" relationship was growing between them. However, he misses her since she left the ship for unknown reasons.
Kara "Starbuck" Thrace Even though Grell is not a major drinker like Kara is, these two became good drinking buddies. If Grell was a girl, these two might have gone lesbian to each other. But for now, they are really close friends. Like Etna, he grew upset that she left, but continues to keep in touch with letters.

- Due to the fact that Grell was abandoned when he was born, he's not sure what race he is. Currently, he believes he's demihuman (the teeth)
- His weapon of choice is a chainsaw since it fits him well and he finds it more effective than an average sword. However, he can find any use to anything that is sharp.
- Since he thinks he's a woman, he likes to crossdress at times, and he could be more mistaken by others as a girl.
- His birthday is October 31, the same as Kristoph Gavin
- He owns a black kitten named Lucia. Grell founded the kitten during the plane racees, so he got her cleaned up and checked before he decided to show Sebastian his discovery. Today, Lucia can be found in Grell's cabin, sleeping or playing with her toys when Grell is gone to work.
- He started working as a butler at 13, being a butler for over a decade.
- Red is his signature color, as he is the only one who can wear it correctly and make it look good.
- If you could find a flower to describe him with, the rose fits him. Grell shows beauty, but is actually quite deadly with his "thorns".
- During his times as Jack the Ripper, he and Madam Red killed 13 women.
- Only a few know or seen this, but he actually knows how to ride horses.
