–Grayfia introducing herself to Issei Hyoudou, Volume 2, Life.2 I Pick a Fight

Grayfia Lucifuge is the wife and Queen of Sirzechs Lucifer and the mother of Millicas Gremory. She is also the older sister of Euclid Lucifuge and the sister-in-law of Rias Gremory. Grayfia is known as the Strongest Queen and the Silver-Haired Queen of Annihilation, and is the only member of Sirzechs' peerage who stayed behind after the events of the Evil Dragon War.

Appearance

Grayfia is a beautiful young woman appearing to be in her early twenties with back-length silver hair that features a long braid on each side with small blue bows at the ends, while the rest is let down which ends in twin braids and red eyes (silver in the anime).

While on her days off as a maid, Grayfia's normal outfit has few noticeable differences is that she looks younger, her eyes are red and she has a faded-pink scrunchy on her, as opposed to the blue maid outfit. Her outfit is a black shirt with golden-caramel accents at the edges of the shirt and spread horizontally near the bottom, with two light golden trims going down the shirt; and the shirt splits slightly above her stomach, exposing her midriff. Around her neck and shoulders is a long, cyan scarf made from light material that reaches her hips. Her jeans are blue, with a white outline at the top.

In most of her appearances, she is seen wearing a blue and white French maid outfit with long sleeves and a white maid headband over her head with red lipstick as a cosmetic accessory.

While participating in the Azazel Cup as Bina Lessthan, Grayfia uses demonic power to change her appearance into a younger version of herself as a teenager and wears a dragon mask to conceal her identity.

Personality

Grayfia has a very strict personality and she is often exasperated by her husband. She also does not like admitting her relationship to Sirzechs while she is "on the job", to the point of pinching Sirzechs's face if he mentions it and denying it. Grayfia also has an issue where she becomes a "troublemaker" as stated by Azazel, who was told by Sirzechs, when she becomes drunk. Despite her serious personality, Grayfia is a kind and wise young woman who deeply loves her family and enjoys doing her "job" as a maid of the Gremory Clan.

History

Grayfia comes from the House of Lucifuge, a noble family of Pure-Blooded Devils from the Extra Demons, whose family served under the original Lucifer. Grayfia was originally from the Old Satan Faction that opposed the Anti-Satan Faction, where she stood in the front lines as one of the most powerful Devils. It was during that time that she met Sirzechs and fell in love with him. During the Devil Civil War, she would meet him in secret. The two of them married each other after the end of the conflict between the Old Satan Faction and the Anti Satan Faction, eventually giving birth to a son. Their romance became a well-known romantic story among the young Devils and was even made into a movie.

Powers & Abilities

Immense Demonic Power: Even for an Ultimate-Class Devil, Grayfia is very powerful. She's noted by Rias and Euclid to be one of the strongest Devils produced by the Old Satan Faction and is titled the Strongest Queen. Her power is stated to be on par with the Four Great Satans and even Sirzechs, a Super Devil and the current Satan Lucifer, is terrified of his wife when she becomes angry. In Volume 25, with the support of Asia and initially Fafnir, she was able to fight evenly against Artemis.

  • Transformation: Grayfia was able to use demonic power to appear the same age as a teenager, while under her alias, Bina Lesthan.

Enhanced Offense and Defense: From the Rook trait of her Queen Piece, Grayfia has offensive and defensive enhancement, giving her enhanced strength and defense.

Enhanced Magic Power: From the Bishop trait of her Queen piece, Grayfia can strengthen her magic and demonic powers.

Enhanced Speed: From the Knight trait of her Queen piece, Grayfia has speed enhancement, increasing her speed. She was easily able to dodge Artemis' arrows during their fight.

Flight: Being a Devil, Grayfia can fly using her wings.

Equipment

Queen Piece (女王の駒, Joō no koma): Grayfia was reincarnated using the Queen Piece, which grants the attributes of a Rook, Bishop, and Knight.
