===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 [[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 to 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 to shoot Billy. Billy lunges at Johnny with a [[knife]], before Johnny finally shoots Billy in the face, killing him.

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.
+
==Personality==
  +
Billy Grey can be accurately described as a sociopath. He has reckless and violent tendencies and often acts without thinking, such as when he resumed the war with the Angels of Death after a peaceful compromise beforehand and smashed a [[Pretty Boy|mechanic]] in the face with a mallet despite the mechanic telling him where his bike was. He also is very treacherous, as he willingly set his "brothers" into a deathtrap. Billy also planned to betray The Lost further by ratting them out to the government, in order to join the Witness Protection program. Michael Klebitz warns Johnny to be careful of Billy in one of his emails, as he claims that Billy "wouldn't piss on [Johnny] if he was on fire".
   
== Mission appearances ==
+
Billy is openly racist, as shown when he uses various ethnic slurs towards a member of the Chinese Triads.
   
;The Lost and Damned
+
==Appearance==
*[[Clean and Serene]] <small>(Boss) </small>
+
Billy's drug addiction made him look much older than he is. Even though he was only 37 years old, he looked as if he was in his fifties. He had a thick greying beard, short greying hair and a tattoo of a skull between his eyebrows. He wore a standard Lost biker jacket with a "President" patch on it. According to his mugshot, Billy stands 6' 1" (1.85 m) tall.
  +
  +
==Patches==
  +
Despite being the president, Billy's vest surprisingly does not have a lot of patches. Here they are, and what they mean:
  +
*'''President''' - Billy is the president of the Alderney chapter, later replaced by [[Johnny Klebitz]].
  +
*'''TLMC''' - An abbreviation of the clubs name.
  +
*'''Golden Wings''' - Indicates that he has drunk a woman's urine.
  +
*'''Brown Wings''' - Indicates that he has performed oral-anal sex on a woman.
  +
*'''Red Wings''' - Indicates that he has performed oral sex on a menstruating woman.
  +
*'''Purple Wings''' - Indicates that he had sex with a pregnant woman. He is the only member of the Lost to have these wings.
  +
  +
==Billy's bike==
  +
During his time in the Lost, Billy rode a customized black [[Revenant]], which is said to have been built by Johnny Klebitz and Angus Martin. Before the events of the game, Johnny offered the bike to The Angels of Death as a peace offering in an attempt to defuse the war between the two clubs and also to help the Lost's financial troubles. When trying to escape from the ambushed drug deal that Billy himself had orchestrated, he crashed his bike, resulting in his arrest by the police.
  +
  +
==Murders committed==
  +
*[[Angels of Death lieutenant]] - [[Angels in America|Murdered]] for crashing his party and flipping him off.
  +
*[[Security Guard]] - [[Get Lost|Murdered]] when Johnny Klebitz, Terry Thorpe, Clay Simons and the rest of The Lost MC invade the prison in an attempt to murder him for his betrayal, which Johnny does but not before the prisoners and the guards start to riot. Billy escapes and manages to kill one of security guards before his death.

== Trivia ==
 
*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 the reason, apart from the financial problems, that the bike was not returned.
 
*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 [[Wikipedia:Charles Manson|Charles Manson's]].
 
*Billy looks similar to [[Wikipedia:James_Hetfield|James Hetfield]] from [[Wikipedia:Metallica|Metallica]].
 
*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). In [[Get Lost]], where he pins a major drug operation on Johnny and his "buddy in the chair" ([[Angus Martin]]) 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.
 
*There are four colored wings on Billy's vest. The purple one indicated he once had sex with a corpse.
 
*After Johnny kills Billy in [[Get Lost]], his police database still says that he is in custody instead of deceased. This is the same for [[GTA IV]] and [[TBOGT|TBoGT]].
 
*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.
 
*According to the LCPD database, Billy is 37 years old by the time of the events of The Lost and Damned. [[Michael Klebitz]] sends Johnny an email which states that Billy and him were friends at 15 when Johnny was 10. This contradicts what the LCPD police database says about his age. What the email says is probably just an error.
 
*Billy, [[Dimitri Rascalov]] and [[Big Smoke]] are the only antagonists who disappear after their betrayal and reappear only when they are killed. In [[Get Lost]], in Billy's case. 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 GTA IV who is not Russian. ([[Dimitri Rascalov]] and [[Ray Bulgarin]] are the main antagonists of GTA IV, and The Ballad of Gay Tony, respectively, and they are both Russian).
 
*Non-chronologically, Billy is one of the three antagonists to be killed in their first appearance (TLAD) and reappear in another game (TBoGT), the others being [[Catalina]] and [[Ricardo Diaz]].
 
*Billy's personality is very similar to that of [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Manson Charles Manson].
 
*Billy is mentioned during one of [[Trevor Phillips]]' missions in ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]'', in a conversation between members of the Lost MC who didn't believe that Billy was a snitch. However, the subtitles misspell his surname as "Gray". Billy is also mentioned in a [[Bleeter]] message.

"The Almighty forgives, Johnny. The Lost don't."
― 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, a minor character in The Ballad of Gay Tony and mentioned in 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 and Chinese Cultural Revolution 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 openly 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 straw.

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 the backup, the deal turned out to be a sting.

Betraying Johnny and Jim/Return to JailEdit

In the 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, which culminated in Johnny killing Brian.

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 to 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 to shoot Billy. Billy lunges at Johnny with a knife, before Johnny finally shoots Billy in the face, killing him.

PersonalityEdit

Billy Grey can be accurately described as a sociopath. He has reckless and violent tendencies and often acts without thinking, such as when he resumed the war with the Angels of Death after a peaceful compromise beforehand and smashed a mechanic in the face with a mallet despite the mechanic telling him where his bike was. He also is very treacherous, as he willingly set his "brothers" into a deathtrap. Billy also planned to betray The Lost further by ratting them out to the government, in order to join the Witness Protection program. Michael Klebitz warns Johnny to be careful of Billy in one of his emails, as he claims that Billy "wouldn't piss on [Johnny] if he was on fire".

Billy is openly racist, as shown when he uses various ethnic slurs towards a member of the Chinese Triads.

AppearanceEdit

Billy's drug addiction made him look much older than he is. Even though he was only 37 years old, he looked as if he was in his fifties. He had a thick greying beard, short greying hair and a tattoo of a skull between his eyebrows. He wore a standard Lost biker jacket with a "President" patch on it. According to his mugshot, Billy stands 6' 1" (1.85 m) tall.

PatchesEdit

Despite being the president, Billy's vest surprisingly does not have a lot of patches. Here they are, and what they mean:

  • President - Billy is the president of the Alderney chapter, later replaced by Johnny Klebitz.
  • TLMC - An abbreviation of the clubs name.
  • Golden Wings - Indicates that he has drunk a woman's urine.
  • Brown Wings - Indicates that he has performed oral-anal sex on a woman.
  • Red Wings - Indicates that he has performed oral sex on a menstruating woman.
  • Purple Wings - Indicates that he had sex with a pregnant woman. He is the only member of the Lost to have these wings.

Billy's bikeEdit

During his time in the Lost, Billy rode a customized black Revenant, which is said to have been built by Johnny Klebitz and Angus Martin. Before the events of the game, Johnny offered the bike to The Angels of Death as a peace offering in an attempt to defuse the war between the two clubs and also to help the Lost's financial troubles. When trying to escape from the ambushed drug deal that Billy himself had orchestrated, he crashed his bike, resulting in his arrest by the police.

Murders committedEdit

  • Angels of Death lieutenant - Murdered for crashing his party and flipping him off.
  • Security Guard - Murdered when Johnny Klebitz, Terry Thorpe, Clay Simons and the rest of The Lost MC invade the prison in an attempt to murder him for his betrayal, which Johnny does but not before the prisoners and the guards start to riot. Billy escapes and manages to kill one of security guards before his death.
