Real Name





Star Wars, Cromartie High School







Grieve-tan is what /co/ dubbed a rule 63 moé fan art of Star Wars ' General Grievous drawn by Japanese artist ヒコロウ (hikorou) and posted on pixiv .

From there, /co/mrades, writefags, and drawfags alike--smitten by the image--began cranking out ideas for her personality, mannerisms, and daily life.

While canon varies to the taste of the writer/artist, certain aspects of the setting she inhabits is consistent:

  • she attends CIS high school
  • she's a member of the fencing (or kendo) team, if not the captain
  • she has a pair of protective, MagnaGuard older sisters
  • her primary love interest is Anon-kun (male) or Anon-chan (female), a student of rival high school Republic High
  • she sees Kenobi-kun as her rival
  • flustering moments trigger asthma attacks forcing her to use her inhaler
  • her peer group includes Maul-tan, Ventress-tan
  • apparently she's been recruited to the school swim team as well

DISCLAIMER: What follows is a "vanilla" beta version of Grieve-tan's native
Alternate Universe setting. It is the product of many different anonymous
contributors putting forth ideas, be they standalone, contradictory or 
complementary to others. This document is not meant to be the single, 
authoritative canon but merely for inspirational purposes.

Purportedly, Professor Dooku, formerly of Republic High and the Galactic District School Board, left to form the CIS (Central Institute for Scholastics). Backed by corporate sponsors who form the board of the directors of the new Separatist School Board, CIS offers a superior education backed by cutting edge technologies.

institute that is run by a skeleton crew of teachers and
