Grays are an enigmatic and malevolent race of alien humanoids who abduct living specimens for research.1


A gray is a humanoid with grey skin, long, willowy limbs and a bulbous head with oversized black eyes that show little emotion. Their movements and expressions appear disturbing and inhuman, and they frequently spend several seconds in deliberation before each move they make. A gray has the ability to become out of phase, allowing it to pass through obstacles. Others universally find grays alien, condescending and sinister.1


Telepathic contact with grays display a constant, unwavering malevolence. Grays seem to communicate with other grays using only telepathy, forgoing even body language or eye contact. A gray can probe the mind of a single intelligent, conscious, helpless creature it touches, and scan for answers to simple questions or for information on a general topic the subject knows.1


Grays travel the Material Plane in search of knowledge and living specimens for research, yet little is known about their motivations or their homeworld. Gray encounter stories often take the form of poorly remembered nightmares from those paralysed by a gray when sleeping. Some abductees recall being subjected to nightmarish experiments on vast, otherworldly vessels, while others have vivid memories of being confined in cramped, dark, seemingly alive places.1
