Gray is an intelligent, upper class Englishman, heavily lacking
a sense of humour. He has no tolerance of Bond's cavalier and
methods of espionage, Gray is also very concerned with the reputation
of the MI6, and on a number of occasions has apologised to various
people on behalf of the British Government.
Most of the time, Frederick Gray's involvement with Bond's missions
are simply aiding in the briefing with M. On rare occasions Gray
has ventured onto the field - during The Spy Who Loved Me mission,
he was situated at the Polaris Submarine Base. In Moonraker Gray
went to Venice with Bond and M, only to be embarrassed as the
trio walked into Drax's laboratory, which at that time has cunningly
been disguised as a room wearing gas masks.
