Dresden Files

Grey Suits, sometimes known as Grey Men, is the nickname Harry Dresden gives to an odd race of demons summoned by Binder. They appear in Turn Coat.


They wear unobtrusive grey suits, they all look similar to each other, and they can move quickly. They have mouths on their hands with "serrated sharklike teeth, and a slithering, coiling purple-black tongue and oozed yellow mucus.[1]

In the series[]

Turn Coat[]

In Turn Coat, Binder summoned them for the hunt of Donald Morgan. While seeking Morgan at the storage facility where he's hidden, Binder has them chase Dresden and Karrin Murphy until they surround the two.[2] They can't get in the circle that Dresden has drawn to barricade Murphy and himself from them. Binder threatens to break the circle with the stone in his hand if Dresden doesn't tell him where Morgan is. Molly Carpenter sneaks up under a veil and draws a big circle that cuts off Binder from his minions. They dissolve into ectoplasmic goo. Murphy takes Binder into custody.[1]

Binder, released from jail, calls up hundreds of his grey minions to Demonreach.[3]

Skin Game[]

In Skin Game, Binder was described as using a circle to summon his minions one at a time to chase down Waldo Butters. They were quite fast.[4]

They are able to handle guns and were equipped with Uzis to deal with any mortals authorities that would respond to the break-in of Hades' Vault.[5]
