Greed is part of a mysterious and secretive organization of thieves that works in the shadows. Many of his personal details remain a mystery, even his real name as he is always referred to simply as "Greed."
Being a thief, he stalks his prey from the shadows and takes their goods and money from them. He seems to enjoy the act of killing more than stealing, and is always in search of more victims.
He is referred to as "Number Four" within his organization and views his colleague Miser as a rival. His group opposes Yoshimitsu's Manjitou.
He is quickly defeated by Heishiro Mitsurugi prior to the events of Soulcalibur IV when he tries to rob him of his fragment of Soul Edge.
