Originally the Grey Court was a cult that chose to enforce balance in the world through force. While the original cult was small in number they gathered several influential and powerful members who in turn grew the Court with each generation. Their leader the first Grey Oracle had led the group to specific objectives that encouraged growth and prosperity throughout several city-states that eventually grew into kingdoms. With this influence the Court left the shadows and began to openly assist various nobles and chosen few all the while leaving their less proper objectives hidden within the shadows.
