Personalities and AppearanceEdit

Warlord PersonalityEdit

"I have to rage war across other places!"

On Kalee, Qymaen jai Sheelal was a warlord much like Megatron from Transformers and had no mercy or compassion what so ever to his enemies and allies unless they help him. The warlord was war-happy and chased after millions, killing them in the process.

Cyborg PersonalityEdit

2008 Grievous and his B1s talk on his heroic ship

The heroic General Grievous talks to his droids.

When in his cybernetic body, Qymaen was gone and Grievous was born. As General Grievous, he is known to be a heroic being. He lost his war-happiness and conquering spirits and changed to a compassionate friendly hero. It is said that he has mercy and compassion for even his allies, as evidenced during his time with the Separatists. Sometimes, Grievous can be super-compassionate and it sometimes leads to his own wounds though he still continues being a hero. Some people doesn't like it when Grievous shows mercy and compassion to his enemies such as the sinister Jedi and especially Palpatine. Grievous tries to fix this to please others but it's tough for the hero. On the battlefield, he is a very calculating and ingenious tactician, and is really a force to be reckoned with clones. Jedi on the other hand, Grievous has trouble fighting. Strong and weak, Grievous defends himself from the evil Jedi on various occasions and wasn't too happy when Jedi invaded his new home. Sometimes, Grievous could win against them other times, he could be cowardly and run from them but reappear as a stronger hero ever and defeat them. When his IG-100s were training with him, Grievous was a good fighter. Since his cyborg body made him weak, he couldn't fight that well against certain foes. He is also a little shy around females.

Another part of Grievous is that he dislikes Sith and Jedi (Dooku, Ventress, Krell, Nadhar, Obi-Wan, etc) and the Republic, due to them enslaving him on Kalee and the Sith for not being trustworthy. He disliked the Jedi and the Sith since they were both hurting the General of the Confederacy. Another part of Grievous's personality is that he won't kill the Jedi and usually wants to capture them or bring them to justice as he did with Eeth Koth and Adi Gallia, both feared Dark Acolytes that pretended to be on the Jedi side. He always remembers Kalee and it is never funny and gets mad at his droids when they insult Kalee. He has an intense rivalry with evil Obi-Wan Kenobi and Grievous wants his rival to change but the villainous Jedi never listens. He has been being treated badly by Nute Gunray, Count Dooku, Poggle the Lesser, San Hill, Wat Tambor, and other CIS members such as Driver battle droids.

He also cares for battle droids but he lost his patience with the droids for their stupid actions and has been known to destroy them by smacking their heads off, which the CIS usually calls him out on. Later, he started caring about his droids since they are helping in some cases.


Grievous is a seven foot tall Kaleesh cyborg with gold eyes. Originally, he was smaller than that and was taller due to the cybernetic body. His faceplate resembles his Kaleesh mask on Kalee and has the Kaleesh eye marks on his head. Grievous's legs appear sexy to some. He wears a Kaleesh cloak on him that goes down to his back. Due to his back problems when the CIS built him, Grievous is usually hunched over and appears smaller than his B1 battle droids and allies. Grievous has four fingers on each hand and when split into two, he has two fingers each hand.

Weapons and AbilitiesEdit

In his cybernetic body, Grievous has numerous weapons and emplacements on his heroic body. Grievous carries four lightsabers on his waist. He only has those four and has known to carry modified E-5 Blaster rifle named Grievance Striker. He also a DC-17 Pistol Blaster once from one of the evil clone troopers. Alongside the rest of his heroic stuff, Grievous has a comlink attached to his arm to communicate with his heroic IG-100 MagnaGuards or his stupid driver battle droids. On his right arm, Grievous has built in grappling hook that shoot from miles away and still latch onto things.

In terms of strength, Grievous is a superhuman hero. He has superhuman strength to be able to lift up many things a normal human couldn't. In some sort of way, Grievous's strength is like Hulk but doesn't use his anger to make him stronger.


  • George Lucas wanted a heroic Grievous in the The Clone Wars series so he added it the show to differ from the usual evil General Grievous. However, he was hated by most fans and later counted as Non-Canon due to his heroic actions in the show.
  • In later episodes, Grievous started appearing less due his heroic nature and after that, he rarely appeared.
