In the world of Black Clover, magic is everything. Magic determines the rank, status and respect everyone has in society. The highest respect one may attain is becoming a truly powerful magic knight. Nobles and commoners alike hone their magical abilities in pursuit of protecting their Kingdom and becoming strong.
All of the Magic Knight Squads are revered for their strength and renown, except for the Black Bulls. The Black Bulls are a group of misfits and trouble makers that are looked down upon by others. Founded by Yami Sukehiro, the Black Bulls are a truly unique Magic Knight squad that has plenty of powerful warriors.

For most of the story, she was relegated to the background, but after the elves are revived Grey really showed her passion and love for the Black Bulls. Grey does lack the power of her peers, but her versatility and utility make her an excellent partner for any of the Black Bull members.
