Grisella is the model of a knight, standing in an ancient set of armour, polished so as to gleam with love and care. She wears her once luxurious brown hair, now streaked with silver, braided into a single plat. Her face, so often hard and unyielding, carries more than her share of lines, wrought out of the unending duty she pledged to the Sword of Justice.
Grisella is a strict, no nonsense knight. See sees the world within very clear lines of light and dark, good and evil. To her world, there is little, or no, room for ambiguities.
She works tirelessly with those that are less fortunate than she is, working with the sick, oppressed and young to bring renewed strength and unity to the beleaguered peoples, all in the name of the her god.
Born into the wealthy and elite of the Solamnic houses, Grisella was raised on the ideals of the Knights of Solamnia. She forever heard tales of their glorious past and epic battles that they had won against the darkness.
Grisella took those tales to heart, and spent her childhood years training herself to be one of those knights of virtue. When sickness came to her town, she rushed to give aid to those in need, using the limited gifts of healing she had.
When the gods of Krynn returned to their world, Grisella heard the call of the Sword of Justice in her dreams. He whispered stories and tales to her in her dreams, words which often strengthened her soul against the hardships of life. He encouraged her to continue with her effort to become a knight.
Under the tutelage of Kiri-Jolith, Grisella expanded on her mystic abilities to draw divine power from Kiri-Jolith himself, much like the tales of old said his clerics could once do.
Armed with his grace strengthening her heart and arm, she eventually entered the Knighthood, and became a Knight of the Sword.
