Grell Sutcliff

Grell Sutcliff

In Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji), Grell Sutcliff is a grim reaper who initially works as Madame Red's butler. After he becomes... disgruntled with this position, he takes over and dons his signature red coat. Grell is equal parts flamboyant and sadistic, and has an unhealthy fixation with Sebastian Michaelis, to his dismay.

Ah, I can finally appear before you in my real form! Because isn't it embarrassing to appear before a handsome guy without makeup? -grell sutcliffe

  1. SHE. Grell is female. If you watch the anime, she calls herself a lady, and in the manga there are little extras she actually mentions wanting to transition. The creator of the manga has outright said that Grell is a woman in a man’s body.

      Sorry about that :/ I can honesty say I was a little stumped as to what gender to refer to Grell as. Im sure that someone wouldn’t have been happy with the outcome no matter what ahaha… *Clears throat*
      I just always referred to her with male pronouns because of her biological gender. Im really sorry that this annoyed you, I know how frustrating it can be.

  2. Grell is actually indeed a male but calls himself a female. you were correct the first time. it explains every thing in the episode that he kills madame red. though he calls himself a she… you can obviously tell Grell is male.

    • Hi “H” Grell is a transwoman. yes born biologically male. But Grell is a woman. Hence why she calls herself a she.

      • I think what H meant was that Grell doesn’t dress like a girl often. He might be gender fluid. Normally Grell appears(looks) male.

        Also the Items for the cosplay look great but are too expensive XD
