===Early Years===
Billy Grey was born in 1971 in Acter, Alderney. He was introduced to violence and racism at a young age, by watching news coverage of the [[wp:Vietnam War|Vietnam War]] and/or [[wp:Cultural Revolution|Chinese Cultural Revolution]] deaths when he was under 10 years old (as he tells a Triad capo during [[Chinese Takeout]]). Around 1984, he was friends with [[Michael Klebitz]] when Michael was 15 and Billy was 13, and Billy was introduced to his younger brother [[Johnny Klebitz]], Johnny being only 10 at the time. According to Michael, Billy "thought he was Jesus on an acid trip" and quickly became a bad influence on Johnny. Michael, in contrast, became a soldier in Iraq and an upstanding citizen, criticizing Billy's and Johnny's criminal biker lifestyle. In 1986, Billy was arrested for stealing a bike when he was 15, which Johnny would soon imitate in 1991. Billy committed many other crimes and served up to two years in juvenile hall before he and Johnny both joined the [[Lost MC]]. He was arrested for murder in 1989 when he was 18, possibly alongside [[Brian Jeremy]] who was arrested for the same crime in the same year (whether or not, Brian would eventually be his most loyal follower in the Lost).

Billy worked his way up from a prospect to president of the chapter. Billy is shown to be a sadistic and violent leader and as president, he enacted the worst acts of violence to the Lost's ongoing rivals since 1982, [[The Angels of Death]]. During his presidency, he was to blame for an accident that handicapped fellow Lost member [[Angus Martin]], and put their AOD rival [[Joe Jon|Joe Jon's]] nephew in a coma. His drug problem severely worsened; he began using heroin. The mission [[This Shit's Cursed]] reveals that Billy used to take steroids.

At another point in time, Billy slept with Johnny's girlfriend [[Ashley Butler]]; despite common belief, this goes against most normal Outlaw Motorcycle Club's laws, as sleeping with a member's girlfriend or old lady/wife is strictly forbidden. Johnny became understandably jealous but never outwardly criticized Billy for it, possibly hinting that his relationship with Ashley was already weak due to her drug addiction, with the affair being the final add-up for the relationship's end.

===Return===
In early 2008, Billy was arrested with heroin and was placed in rehab. Johnny became president in his place, giving Billy's motorcycle to the Angels of Death as a peace offering. Months later, he was released (in the first mission of the game [[Clean and Serene]]), and reclaimed his place as chapter president, also continuing his drug habits. Billy -- just as he returned from jail -- demanded Johnny and the gang go steal his bike back.

Billy later held a [[Angels in America|party]] at the clubhouse, and had the gang exterminate all the [[Angels of Death]] members who ambushed it. He then later, after introducing [[Johnny Klebitz]] to [[Dave Grossman]], sent The Lost to [[It's War|strike down]] many more AOD members -- after the ambush, he announced that [[Jason Michaels]] was [[No Love Lost|killed]], and told the Lost that the AOD killed him. This was the basis Billy used to [[Action/Reaction|fully raid and attack]] the [[Angels of Death Clubhouse]] (with some [[Grenade Launchers]] he purchased from [[Ray Boccino]]).

During the mass raid, Billy found a large pile of [[Heroin]] belonging to the AOD; against Johnny's statement that they should abandon it since it will start a war, Billy decided to take the heroin to himself. He later [[Buyer's Market|sent]] Johnny Klebitz to [[Elizabeta Torres]] to sell the Heroin to a third party; however, despite having [[Niko Bellic]] and [[Playboy X]] as [[Blow Your Cover|backup]], the deal turned out to be a sting.

In the [[TBOGT|TBoGT]] mission [[Chinese Takeout]], it is revealed that Billy was making a deal with a [[Triad]] leader -- he would lead [[Johnny Klebitz]] and [[Jim Fitzgerald]] to the Triad building, and would just let the Triads exterminate them and take the Heroin for himself (he also has a brief, 2-line conversation with [[Luis Lopez]] and [[Tony Prince]] in this mission). However, when the plan came to come in the mission [[This Shit's Cursed]], Johnny and Jim -- despite losing the Heroin -- were able to escape the ambush. Not only that, but Billy also ended up arrested by the [[LCPD]] (possibly tipped off by the Triads). This left Johnny Klebitz in charge of [[The Lost]] (this started a brief civil war between [[Jeremy Biker Gang|Brian's Faction]] and Johnny's that started in [[End of Chapter]] and culminated in [[Bad Standing]].

In the mission [[Was It Worth It?]], Ray Boccino commented that Billy told him that Johnny and Jim were backstabbers. Also, [[Agent Jones]] -- an unseen [[FIB]] agent -- also told Johnny in his second phone call to him that Billy was testifying against him. In the game's [[Get Lost|final mission]], after [[Thomas Stubbs]] explained that Billy was to testify against the MC, Johnny decided to take the last three combat-enabled members of [[The Lost]] (himself, [[Terry Thorpe]] and [[Clay Simons]]) mass-attacked the [[Alderney State Correctional Facility]] and after blasting through all the security guards, confronted and executed Billy, ending his life for good.

Also, [[Agent Jones]], an unseen [[Federal Investigation Bureau|FIB]] agent, told Johnny in his second phone call to him that Billy was testifying against him. In the game's [[Get Lost|final mission]], after [[Thomas Stubbs]] explained that Billy was going testify against the MC, Johnny decided to take the last combat-enabled members of [[The Lost MC]] (including [[Terry Thorpe]] and [[Clay Simons]]) and mass-attack the [[Alderney State Correctional Facility|Alderney State Correctional Facility.]] After blasting through all the security guards, Terry and Clay head back to their bikes while Johnny confronts Billy, who killed a security guard. After Billy taunts Johnny about killing him, Johnny is hesitant but takes his chance when Billy attempts to attack Johnny with a [[Knives|Knife]] but gets shot in the throat by the latter, killing him. After Billy's death, Johnny and the crew eventually escape the prison while Johnny reflects about Billy's betrayal and that he got what he deserved for betraying not only Johnny and his friends but himself for putting his place in a bad position. As they arrive, [[The Lost MC Clubhouse]] is trashed by [[Pegorino crime family|Ray's men]]. Johnny has the place burned down while he, Terry, Clay and Angus watch as the Clubhouse burns in hell which ends [[The Lost and Damned|The Storyline]].

― Billy Grey

William "Billy" Grey is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as the main antagonist of The Lost and Damned, as a minor character in The Ballad of Gay Tony and mentioned during Grand Theft Auto V.

BackgroundEdit

Early YearsEdit

Billy Grey was born in 1971 in Acter, Alderney. He was introduced to violence and racism at a young age, by watching news coverage of the Vietnam War (also known as Chinese Cultural Revolution) deaths when he was under 10 years old (as he tells a Triad capo during Chinese Takeout). Around 1984, he was friends with Michael Klebitz when Michael was 15 and Billy was 13. During their friendship, Billy was introduced to his younger brother Johnny Klebitz, Johnny being only 10 at the time. According to Michael, Billy "thought he was Jesus on an acid trip" and quickly became a bad influence on Johnny. Michael, in contrast, became a soldier in Iraq and an upstanding citizen, criticizing Billy's and Johnny's criminal biker lifestyle. In 1986, Billy was arrested for stealing a bike when he was 15, which Johnny would soon imitate in 1991. Billy committed many other crimes and served up to two years in juvenile hall before he and Johnny both joined The Lost MC. He was arrested for murder in 1989 when he was 18, possibly alongside Brian Jeremy who was arrested for the same crime in the same year (whether or not, Brian would eventually be his most loyal follower in The Lost).

The Lost MCEdit

Billy worked his way up from a prospect to president of the chapter. Billy is shown to be a sadistic and violent leader and as president, he enacted the worst acts of violence to The Lost's ongoing rivals since 1982, The Angels of Death. During his presidency, he was to blame for an accident that handicapped fellow Lost member Angus Martin, and put the nephew of their AoD rival, Joe Jon, in a coma. His drug problem severely worsened; he began using heroin. The mission This Shit's Cursed reveals that Billy used to take steroids.

At another point in time, Billy slept with Johnny's girlfriend Ashley Butler. Despite common belief, this goes against most normal Outlaw Motorcycle Club's laws, as sleeping with a member's girlfriend or old lady/wife is strictly forbidden. Johnny became understandably jealous but never outwardly criticized Billy for it, possibly hinting that his relationship with Ashley was already weak due to her drug addiction, with the affair being the final add-up for the relationship's end.

Events of The Lost and DamnedEdit

ReturnEdit

In early 2008, Billy was arrested with heroin and placed in rehab. Johnny became president in his place, giving Billy's motorcycle to the Angels of Death as a peace offering. Months later, he was released (in the first mission of the game, Clean and Serene) and reclaimed his place as chapter president, also continuing his drug habits. Billy, just as he returned from jail, demanded Johnny and the gang to go steal his bike back.

Billy later held a party at the clubhouse, and had the gang exterminate all the Angels of Death members who ambushed it. He then later, after introducing Johnny Klebitz to Dave Grossman, sent The Lost to strike down many more AoD members -- after the ambush, he announced that Jason Michaels was killed. He also told Johnny that the AoD killed him, a lie which he used as a basis to fully raid and attack the Angels of Death Clubhouse (with some Grenade Launchers he purchased from Ray Boccino).

During the mass raid, Billy found a large pile of Heroin belonging to the AoD. Against Johnny's statement that they should abandon it since it will start a war, Billy decided to take the heroin for himself. He later sent Johnny Klebitz to Elizabeta Torres to sell the Heroin to a third party; however, despite having Niko Bellic and Playboy X as backup, the deal turned out to be a sting.

Betraying Johnny and Jim/Return to JailEdit

In the TBoGT mission Chinese Takeout, it is revealed that Billy was making a deal with a Triad leader — he would lead Johnny Klebitz and Jim Fitzgerald to the Triad building, and would let the Triads exterminate them and take the Heroin for themselves (he also has a brief, 2-line conversation with Luis Lopez and Gay Tony in this mission). However, when the plan came to come in the mission This Shit's Cursed, Johnny and Jim, despite losing the Heroin, were able to escape the ambush. Not only that, but Billy also ended up arrested by the LCPD (possibly tipped off by the Triads). This left Johnny Klebitz in charge of The Lost. This started a brief civil war between Brian's Faction and Johnny's that started in End of Chapter and culminated in Bad Standing.

DeathEdit

"What? You waiting for a speech or something? Come on!"
―Billy's last words.

In the mission Was It Worth It?, Ray Boccino commented that Billy told him that Johnny and Jim were backstabbers. Also, Agent Jones, an unseen FIB agent, told Johnny in his second phone call to him that Billy was testifying against him. In the game's final mission, after Thomas Stubbs explained that Billy was going testify against the MC, Johnny decided to take the last combat-enabled members of The Lost MC (including Terry Thorpe and Clay Simons) and mass-attack the Alderney State Correctional Facility. After blasting through all the security guards, Terry and Clay head back to their bikes while Johnny confronts Billy, who killed a security guard. After Billy taunts Johnny about killing him, Johnny is hesitant but takes his chance when Billy attempts to attack Johnny with a Knife but gets shot in the throat by the latter, killing him. After Billy's death, Johnny and the crew eventually escape the prison while Johnny reflects about Billy's betrayal and that he got what he deserved for betraying not only Johnny and his friends but himself for putting his place in a bad position. As they arrive, The Lost MC Clubhouse is trashed by Ray's men. Johnny has the place burned down while he, Terry, Clay and Angus watch as the Clubhouse burns in hell which ends The Storyline.

TriviaEdit

  • When Johnny Klebitz and Billy Grey are arguing early in the game, Johnny mentions that Billy's Revenant "chopped that girls leg off" and that Billy put Joseph Johnson's nephew into a coma. He states that this is the reason, apart from the financial problems, that the bike was not returned.
  • In the mission Clean and Serene, Billy gets out of rehab after being imprisoned for drug distribution. However, the last charge that appears on his criminal record is for Racketeering. It is possible however that he plead guilty to the lesser charge of distribution in order to avoid a lengthy prison term.
  • Billy is missing a President patch on his vest on his concept artwork.
  • Billy has a skull tattoo with "1%" inside on his forehead. "1%" means that the Lost MC is an outlaw motorcycle club. His tattoo is also similar to Charles Manson's.
  • Billy has betrayed Johnny twice. First in This Shit's Cursed, where he conspired with a triad member to kill Johnny (although it is only seen in Chinese Takeout in TBoGT). Second in Get Lost, where he pins a major drug operation on Johnny and his "buddy in the chair", so he can have them sent to prison.
  • In the Meet Billy Grey trailer, he is seen driving a Zombie and Hexer. However, he is not seen driving either of these in the game.
  • In Clean and Serene, before Johnny gets back to the clubhouse, you can see that Billy wore blue jeans and brown causal boots while in rehab.
  • Billy, Dimitri Rascalov and Big Smoke are the only antagonists who disappear after their betrayal and reappear only when they are killed. Billy is also the only one of these three who doesn't disappear by choice (since he was arrested).
  • Billy is the only main antagonist in the GTA IV era who is not Russian (Dimitri Rascalov and Ray Bulgarin are the main antagonists of GTA IV and The Ballad of Gay Tony, and they are both Russian).
  • Billy is also the only main antagonist in the HD Universe (excluding GTA: Chinatown Wars) that is introduced at the beginning of his respective game.
  • Non-chronologically, Billy is one of three antagonists to be killed in their first appearance (TLAD) and reappear in another game (TBoGT), the others being Catalina and Ricardo Diaz.
  • Billy is mentioned during the Trevor Philips mission Friends Reunited in Grand Theft Auto V, in a conversation between members of The Lost MC who didn't believe that Billy was a snitch. Billy is also mentioned in a Bleeter message. Also, the subtitles spell his name as "Gray" as opposed to "Grey".
  • Billy is the only member of The Lost MC who didn't die trying to escape, looking for help or without resistance. Unlike all other prisoners, he didn't try to escape while Johnny was looking for him in prison. He accepted his death by mocking him and later trying to assault Johnny with his knife.
