"Something about that glory just always seemed to bore me"
— 7 Years by Lukas Graham
Greyson stands at a flat six feet tall while weighing approximately 68.946kg (152lbs). The young man keeps up on working out, leaving him with quite an athletic, mesomorph build. He has blue-grey eyes and wavy dirty-blond hair. His skin is lightly-tanned, with no blemishes of any kind. Greyson's personal style consists of plain ol' crew neck t-shirts and jeans with some normal street shoes. Least that's what he wears to fit in with the 'American youth'. He would much prefer it if he wore fancier clothing, such as button up shirts and a nice pair of jeans or slacks with some dress shoes. A nicely pressed suit is a personal favorite, of his. No matter what he wears, though, he always has his two rings (1.0
family crest ; 2.0
gift from his father) and his necklace
from his mother.

Greyson is a soft-spoken gentleman who keeps a rather calm and stoic demeanor on the outside. His background has him constantly holding his shoulders back and head held high to face the problems thrown his way. He's a young man of very few words, that is unless he's speaking passionately about something. Or to someone. Even through the hardships that Greyson has faced, he's always managed to keep hold of his soft, kind-hearted inner shell. The few he's allowed into his inner circle know this boy is loyal to a fault, and loves like no other. His need to protect the women in his life far exceeds anything else. Having quite a number of nieces, he knows just how fragile young girls can be. Greyson can be a bit more emotional as well as in-tune to emotions more than the average male, having been raised around more girls than boys (with the exception of his two brothers, he had several female cousins he was raised around), he picked up a few things. Greyson is an all-around good guy. He can act pretty damn confident, but it's not out of an "I'm better than you" way, more of an "I know my worth" kind of way. He's a lover, not a fighter, but will fight for those he loves. You probably won't find another guy like him.History
Greyson's mother, Princess Diana, died less than a year after his birth. Greyson grew up in the shadows of Prince William and Prince Harry, raised by Prince Charles, Duke of Wales and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. Charles treated Greyson as if he was his own son, and Greyson knew no better. His real father never came forward to claim him so he didn't know any better of where/who his real lineage lied with. That is, until he was approximately 9-years-old, when he was nearly killed by a giant.
The details of just how exactly he survived are quite fuzzy to Greyson, but all he knows is it didn't take long for someone from a Camp that resided in the States to reach out to him to comfort him in the dark time. They offered information for the young boy to piece together, filling in the blanks of a past he never even knew. He began spending summers in the camp, learning who he was and how to control the abilities he had (and was still discovering). He quickly learned that he wasn't alone, and that things weren't just black and white, but much more complicated than he could've ever imagined before.
Once Greyson came of age, he stopped attending the camp and exchanged his summer camp shenanigans for Olympus Academy. The change was difficult, at first. The atmosphere was... challenging, to say the least. Eventually, Greyson did find his place among the crowd and fell in with the rest. Being a son of one of The Big Three caused him to grow a reputation rather quickly, but the young man didn't put much thought into it. As much as he enjoys his time spent at the school, he enjoys going back home to be with his family for the summers. Greyson occasionally takes time off of school to make public appearances with the family, but they don't last too long, as he has a duty to his schooling. Something he's always taken very seriously.
From what Greyson was told by his father many years ago, his parents met on a pier. Diana and Charles had just settled their divorce and her ex-husband and ex-friend Camilla had gone quite public with their relationship. No longer in the shadows, it was hard for Diana to cope. Poseidon had happened upon the woman crying on a bench seat overlooking the water. It was late in the evening and the sun was setting. It was something out of a movie. Even though she was in tears and her make-up was running, he said she was the most beautiful woman he'd ever seen. He took to her like a duck to water, and vice versa. The two became very close in a short time and... well, it led to the conception of a child. Greyson. Over the next nine months, she kept her pregnancy hush hush.Personal "Pet"
When the boy was born, it was believed to the public, anyway that the child was the result of Charles and Diana having flipped the table and had an affair behind Camilla's back. Of course, Charles denied it because he knew that wasn't the case. Camilla, however, had her suspicions. When Diana died in the car crash just 8 months after Greyson was born, Charles took it upon himself to bring him under his wing and raise him as his own. The public already had it in their minds that he was in fact his. If he turned his back on the boy, he'd never hear the end of it. The small child grew on Charles quickly, making it simple for him to forget that he wasn't actually his. He received the same schooling as his two brothers, William and Harry.
Greyson grew up hearing stories of his mother from the two older boys, and of course the tabloids. It wasn't encouraged in the Royal Household to read up on any of them, because most (if not all of them) were lies. Least that's what they were told, growing up. Greyson read them anyway. It's all he had left of his mother's legacy. That, and a necklace that she bought for him within the first few weeks after his birth at the pier where his parents had met. She'd planned to give it to him on his 18th birthday. His father had acquired it at some point, but instead of holding onto it for so long, he gave it to his son the summer following his 10th birthday. It's the only thing Greyson has left of his mother, doubling as a reminder that at one point in time his parents had been in love.
"There was this girl I knew at the camp I used to attend in the summers... daughter of Hephaestus. Girl by the name of Sofia Greco. We became very close in our time spent in the camp. Growing up, my favorite animal was a snow leopard, and she and I had talked about it on a few occasions. I used to draw blueprints of sorts for this idea I had, so that one day I could build up my own mechanical beast. Just as a sort of hobby, nothing more, really. Well, some years passed by, and one summer when I had arrived to camp, she was waiting for me at the gates with this huge grin on her face. Eventually she took me down to her bunker where she liked working on her projects, and put the final touches on what she was so eager to show me. Turns out, ever since we had started making sketches and whatnot of my mechanical leopard, she'd been trying to build one for me. She finally finished it, and gave it to me as a 'welcome home' present." Greyson smiles to himself, staring off into space at the ground, rubbing the stubble on the side of his face absent-mindedly. "I miss her. Got a piece of her with me wherever I go, though." After a moment in silence, Greyson clears his throat and stands upright, bettering his posture. "Sheba, the leopard, is water-resistant. Of course. Can't have her short-circuiting on me. Being who I am, I'm glad Sofia took the extra step to do that. Sheba's practically a living thing. Has the same mannerisms as an actual leopard, and if she feels I'm being threatened, she will attack, or at the very least prepare to. She also has a set of commands, which are voice sensitive, and are spoken in Italian and ASL. Sofia and I used to speak both to each other, so she implemented that into the leopard's programming."

"You honor yourself by acting with dignity and composure."
— Diana, Greyson's mother
Poseidon, god of the sea, earthquakes and horsesRelationship With Godly Parent
Greyson tends to stay away from his father. He doesn't hate him, as hate is quite a strong emotion in which Greyson finds hard to attach to anyone, really. But they definitely aren't close. Greyson could probably count the times he's interacted with his father on one hand. When Greyson was younger he used to want everything to do with him, but as he got older and began to realize that Poseidon never reached out to Greyson, that it was always the other way around, that he stopped trying. Greyson was learning all he needed to know from Camp and the Academy, so what did he need Poseidon for?Demigod Abilities
