Character Description: Grell Sutcliffe

Grell is over-the-top and flamboyant, with a tendency to use female nouns and pronouns when referring to himself. He also has a tendency to put things in terms of theatre, referring to Angelina's death as the falling of curtains on a theatre act, and comparing his relationship with Sebastian to the famous play, Romeo and Juliet. He apparently has feelings for Sebastian, much to the latter's disgust, and gives Sebastian the nickname "Little Sebast" in the manga and "Sebby" in the anime.

However, his affections are not limited to Sebastian, as he seems to find men in general attractive. For example, with William Spears, whom he calls a sadist, he seems enamored by his eyes, saying they send chills up his spine. He also hunts down Pluto, saying he made his hunk radar go off. In particular, he seems to favor those he deems immoral.

The other Shinigami, however, don't seem to like him, as William constantly refers to him as "trash."

His favorite color, apparently, is red, as he is described as the Shinigami in red by Angelina, commits the Jack the Ripper murders so he can paint "ugly" women red with their blood, and says "Ordinary women aren't fit to wear the color."
