- This article is for Goodman Grey. For other uses, see Grey.
"An unremarkable looking man. Late thirties, medium height, solid-seeming, as if he had more muscle to him than was readily apparent. His features were clean-cut, pleasant without being particularly handsome. He had a slightly dark complexion and the right bone structure to pass for a resident just about anywhere in the western hemisphere and in chunks of the rest of the world. His dark hair had a few threads of grey in it. One thing about him wasn't average-his eyes. They were kind of golden brown with flecks of bronze in them, but that wasn't the strange part. There was a sheen to them, almost like a trick of the light, a semi-metallic refraction from their surface, there for a second and then gone again. They weren't human eyes."
In the seriesEdit
- Main article: Skin Game
In Skin Game, Harry Dresden hired him to act as his plant during the heist. They talked in code, and Grey would eventually show his true allegiance by fighting Nicodemus when Dresden said "Game over." Up to that point, Grey had pretended to work with Nicodemus, do his bidding, pretended to not like Dresden, occasionally bickering with him, and acted as if the two of them had never met each other. At the end of the book, Dresden was shocked to discover that Grey was the son of a Naagloshii. Grey responded with:
"You didn't choose to be the son of Margaret LeFay. You didn't choose the legacy she left you with her blood. And she was a piece of work,[Footnote 1] kid, I knew her. I didn't choose my father, either. And he was a piece of work, too. But I do choose how I live my life."
Grey did not take any money from the heist, as he technically wasn't hired for it. Grey's price was for "rent money", which turned out to be one dollar.
