Monotone Princess arcEdit

Setting their plan in motion, Grimoire gathered human people in Italy and siphoned their soul using the Paraponera Clan's soul cocoon. However, this process was temporarily interrupted by Killbell. He bartered with the male by claiming the cocoon would allow him to be reborn stronger and offered him a cocoon with a soul. After the exchange and the draining of the other souls, he then uses magic to control the humans.[1]

Grimoire and Ponera talking

Grimoire and Ponera watch as DWMA gains one of their soul cocoons.

Later, Grimoire is present alongside Ponera as they watch Maka's team and Sid Barrett take the soul cocoon stolen from them by Alone and into Death Weapon Meister Academy. Grimoire is then tasked by Ponera on retrieving the cocoon from the DWMA. Complying with the order, the both of them teleport back to their hideout.[1]

Grimoire travels to Patchwork Lab using the underground caverns deep beneath the outskirts of the city connected to the Paraponera Clan's base of operations where he retrieves the soul cocoon as a Gigant was awaken and began destroying the inside of the lab. While only revealing his name, Doctor Medusa reveals to Maka's team and Stein of the Paraponera Clan and their leader much to his surprise and chargin. He then escapes, allowing the Gigant to battle a member of Maka's team.[1]

When the DWMA begins hunting down Paraponera Clan's base of operation deep within the underground caverns, Death the Kid and the Thompson sisters are sent and encounter Grimoire. Using his magic to do battle, he believes he has the upperhand but takes surprise when he finds that Kid dispels his magic with his death cannon technique. Eventually, Grimoire begins to take the battle more seriously and starts utilizing kishin power after absorbing a kishin egg into his book that has been within a soul cocoon to battle the death god. However, he is still defeated and his soul is absorbed into his book.[1]


  • This character is erroneously believed to be the character, Noah (Greed). However, this is not the case. The author simply liked his designed and incorporate it into the manga. Grimoire shares a much similar appearance with slight differences but is a completely different characters on account that the Monotone Princess game is non-canon game.
