The clan of the village where Gray was born, aimed to create a being capable of handling the Holy Lance that had been passed down for generations. In other words, their purpose was to revive King Arthur, in flesh and spirit. However, their attempts had thus far been continuous failures.
Gray was to be the flesh of King Arthur. When she was born, her facial features vaguely resembled those of King Arthur, but with the years, her body suddenly changed to that of King Arthur's. Losing her true face, she could no longer differentiate her own existence from that of King Arthur. Because of this, she could never fully understand herself.
Due to Gray's situation, the villagers, including her mother — believed her to be King Arthur's second coming, and treated her as the body of the king. As a result, Gray feared and hated her own face. It was decided by the villagers that they will use the gods to summon King Arthur's soul, and infuse it into Gray's body. Unfortunately, this meant that Gray's own soul would be lost forever.
She is about 15 years old in the events of Adra Castle Case. She has a striking resemblance with Saber to which Lord El-Melloi II believes Gray to be a distant descendent of King Arthur. Her face brings unpleasant memories of the Fourth Holy Grail War for Lord El-Melloi II so he tells her to wear a hood to hide her face.
In Fate/strange Fake, she appears in her early twenties.

case. Grand ResolutionEdit
She appears in the second part of the story. Lord El-Melloi II was ordered by the Mage's Association to investigate the Subcategory Holy Grail in the Seventh Labyrinth of Caubac Alcatraz. She encounters Norma Goodfellow in the Labyrinth.
When Lord El-Melloi II learns from Rohngall that Flat Escardos was participating in the False Holy Grail War, Lord El-Melloi II collapsed on the lecture platform. It is suggested that the student who spoke to Rohngall was Gray, based on her speaking pattern. Gray informs Rohngall that Lord El-Melloi II is always like this whenever Flat is involved. Gray takes her mentor over her shoulder and takes him to the infirmary.
She has magic circuits and is an "Earth" Elements attribute user.
It has also been noted by Faker that Gray is also a Cybele who particularly specializes in spiritual possession in order to perform divination, as seen when she had a vision regarding Faker's past. Gray however seemed to have been oblivious to this ability beforehand and had accessed it purely subconsciously.
Gray possesses the Noble Phantasm Rhongomyniad, the holy lance of King Arthur, that has been passed down through the generations by preserving its mystery through a similar manner to the Tradition Carrier trait held by the Fraga family.
Gray possesses a unique Mystic Code referred to as "Add". Add has its own ego and is capable of speech and independent thought. Add typically stays in a birdcage and Gray usually keeps it hidden around the mantle, within the right sleeve. The true function of the Mystic Code is to seal Rhongomyniad away and prevent it from losing its mystery.
Add also possesses the ability to change forms, transforming into a lance-halberd, a tower shield, a large bladed boomerang, a bow with arrows, a jet-powered hammer, a grappling hook/large kusarigama, and possibly more. Its main alternate form is a scythe called Grim Reaper: The scythe of the Death God (死神の鎌, Shinigami no Kama?). This is Gray's weapon of choice in battle. The scythe consumes Spiritual Body and Magical Energy, and it also has the ability to convert energy and provide a physical boost to the owner. Using this ability, Gray has demonstrated superhuman agility beyond what is capable with typical magecraft reinforcement. Said energy can also be used to enlarge Add's weapon forms, such as doubling the size of the scythe, with no loss to Gray's combat effectiveness. It is unknown what the limits of this ability are.
