  • DOB: c. 2028
  • Age: 32

  • Eyes: Deep blue

DescriptionEdit

  • Cleo wore her streaked blond hair short, straight, sleek, and showed off a couple of winking blue studs in her earlobes. Her eyes were a deep, almost navy, blue.[4]
  • Her body was both solid and curvy; her voice was quick, clipped, and a little raw at the edges.[5]

PersonalityEdit

  • She's smart enough to use the fact she's got tits when it works for her, and to forget them when it won't. She's ambitious and probably knows how to work everyone else in the squad.[6]
  • She's cool-headed, but she's got something under there that runs hot; she likes jewelry, the subtle, classy kind.[7]
  • She's a loner and doesn't live the job – she's got something to hide.[8]

HistoryEdit

  • She has no marriages, no cohabs, no children; she had several commendations and a handful of disciplinary slaps. She moved to Delong's unit three years ago transferring at her own request from SVU (Special Victims Unit).[9]
  • She went to college and, on exchange, did six months in Europe at the University of Stuttgart.[10] She was the only recipient of the college scholarship provided by one of Max Ricker's fronts.[11]
    • The football team representing the university that Alex and Rod Sandy attended played against, and had a deep-seated rivalry with, the team representing the university where Grady was a visiting student.[12]
      • Alex did not remember her, specifically, but said she looked like someone he saw around with Rod. Rod wouldn't tell Alex about her so he started calling her Miss Mystery.[13]

Family HistoryEdit

  • She has no siblings and her parents retired to Florida.[14]
  • Cleo admitted to having looked for Max Ricker.[15]

Criminal HistoryEdit

  • In Cleo's home lockbox, they found a lot of money, credit cards and IDs in fake names, more passcodes for bank accounts, an unregistered 'link and PPC (not yet activated), and Coltraine's ring.[16]
  • Cleo recruited Rod to pass data on Alex to Max Ricker.[17]

Homicide InformationEdit

  • Victims
    • Amaryllis Coltraine
      • She ambushed Coltraine in her apartment stairwell, stunned her, revived her with a stimulant, then murdererd her with Coltraine's own police-issue weapon.[18]
      • Grady mailed Coltraine's police-issue stunners (including the clutch piece), Coltraine's badge, and her ID to Dallas at Cop Central with a note on a disc (which served as notice and/or warning to Eve).[19]
    • Rod Sandy
      • His body was discovered at 509 Pearl Street in a three-level, multi-tenant, vacant building used by funky-junkies.[20]
      • He'd been stripped, leaving the small hole and dribble of heart blood on his naked chest exposed; one blow to the heart, thin blade (probably a stiletto).[21]
  • Her murders were clean – she's proud of her work (as a detective and as a murderer).[22]
  • When Dallas set up communications to Max, regarding Cleo (after her arrest), he said that Cleo was nothing, never was, never would be – less than nothing. Max said Alex didn't have the balls to murder but at least Cleo knows how to go after what she wants; but she doesn't have Alex's brains. He acknowledges that Cleo wanted to go after Coltraine two years ago but he advised against it and told Eve to lock Cleo away.[23]
    • Cleo admitted that Max targeted Coltraine because of Alex; her murder was payback for words Alex and Max exchanged. Max wanted her to die thinking Alex ordered the hit.[24]
  • Cleo further admitted to murdering over a dozen people for Max.[25]

Interesting FactsEdit

  • She's a Detective third grade with eight years on the job and has been in the eighteenth squad for three years; she moved to New York from Jersey.[26] She has always taken every day of her vacation and sick leave.[27]
  • Cleo said she and Coltraine got to be friends and worked well together; they hung out occasionally. She said she double-dated with Ammy and Morris a few times.[28]
  • Morris was a key part of the sting to obtain Cleo Grady's DNA. He sharpened the rhinestones on the droid cat's collar so that when Cleo handled it, she was cut. Morris used his handkerchief to dab at the blood.[29]
    • Through this DNA sample, they were able to confirm that she is Max Ricker's daughter.[30]
  • Peabody and Dallas also set Cleo up by having her come to Cop Central so that they could pick her brain, see what she might know about Coltraine in order to put Alex away for the murders of Rod Sandy and Amaryllis Coltraine. She agreed to participate.[31]
  • When Dallas told Cleo she was under arrest for murder, Cleo and Dallas both drew their weapons at the same time; Dallas shot her, only giving her a jolt and leaving her conscious.[32]
