Greesel shares his appearance with Awevil, except for having dull green skin, yellow eyes and white hair, and wearing brown and black robes. His wooden staff is also darker in color.
He has the personality of a money-loving miser with the ambition to control all of the world's wealth, being obsessed with saving money but not spending any of it. In the anime, Greesel can dodge attacks with minimal movement to ensure minimal wastage of energy.
Greesel causes his Inspirited targets to act very stingy and go to extreme lengths to avoid wastage, such as cutting down on food.
