Greer can be soft spoken and a little reserved, but she sometimes lets her emotions get the better of her. To strangers, Greer can seem cold and dismissive, but this is probably to cover the fact that she feels inadequate for having to marry for a title. She is very loyal to her Queen and her family, devoting her life to them.
Greer's family is known to be very wealthy; however, with their mines running low, the potential for future wealth is dwindling. Greer has been sent to France with Mary with the expectation that she marry for riches and power. When Greer speaks of this, she seems greatly troubled, and it impacts many elements of her life.
Trumpets sound as they arrive at French Court waiting for their Queen. Lady Kenna, Greer Norwood, Lady Aylee and Lady Lola all emerge from their carriages. Admiring their greeting from the French Court, their own Queen arrives, and they are finally all together again. Mary Stuart asked if the woman beside the King is Queen Catherine, but it was Diane de Poitiers, the King's official mistress. And beside them is their son Sebastian, the King's favourite. Mary is stopped by Prince Francis who cuts across the grass to meet her. They exchanged greetings and Mary talked on sheepishly, losing her composure. Francis then escorted Mary towards his parents for proper introduction.

Season 2 Edit
Greer married Lord Castleroy knowing that he had been going to Protestant services, which he started going to after the death of his daughter, Yvette. After marrying Lord Castleroy, Greer became a noble and titled as Lady Castleroy. 
Lord Castleroy was giving money to a Protestant group to which he thought was going to built schools. When the group came to their house and asked for more money, Lord Castleroy became suspicious as to where the money was going. Lord Castleroy had his suspicion proven when an attack on the King and Queen of France became known</span>. Greer confronted her husband that the money he has been giving to a Protestant group has been used to fund an assassination on the King of France.
Mary asked Greer if she knew anything about her husband's involvement with the Protestant group to which she denied. Knowing that her husband accounting record would prove his involvement, she cut a deal with her husband's accountant at the accounting house. Greer was stripped off her titles, positions, lands and money when the accounting record that proved Lord Castleroy's involvement in funding the attack was discovered. She was allowed to live but as she is charged with treason, she was banished from court.
With no money and nowhere to go, Greer managed to stay at an inn that is also known as a brothel. Lola and Kenna brought Greer some spare change to help her. She inadvertently became a madam when she sent a man to her neighbor's, Charlene's, room at the inn. She was being interviewed to become a lady's companion when Charlene barged in and lashed out on her for sending a mad man with a hair fetish, who cut Charlene's hair and ran away with it. 
Feeling very sorry for what happened to Charlene's hair, Greer had a wig made for her and helped get a better client through an upscale party. Charlene came back with what she thought was "the easiest money" she made in a day and asked Greer to dress her and her friends and tell them when these upscale parties would occur. 
Greer was giving advice to Charlene and her friends about what to wear and how to act in an upscale parties when Leith knocked on her door. Feeling very ashamed of what she was doing, she told Leith that she was trying on dresses with her "attending ladies". Leith told Greer that Lord Castleroy has been imprisoned for life as he was convicted of funding an assassination on the King of France. 
Leith was feeling guilty and told Greer if she ever needed anything, she could ask him. Greer witnessed one of her "working girls" was being harassed by a man and she told him to let her go. When the man told her it was none of her business, Greer said that on the contrary, Gigi was her friend and her neighbour. She basically admitted her role as a madam in front of the whole market to Leith's surprise. 
Later on, Leith confronted Greer about her life as a madam and that she should not involve herself in that kind of trade. Greer said it was hard enough not to become a disappointment in Leith's eye but she has nothing to offer anyone let alone a friend. Greer told Leith to not see her anymore. Leith was going to leave but decided against it and went to Greer's room at the inn and declared his love for her to which she reciprocated. The two consummated their renewed relationship. 
Leith has been spending some time with Greer and he wanted her to move out of the inn. Greer admitted that she's been saving some money and she is renting a big townhouse. Leith asked Greer to annul her marriage to Lord Castleroy and become his wife so that she doesn't need to be a madam. She told him that she doesn't want a man to depend on. She just needs a man who loves her. 
Lola and Kenna were worried about Greer's living condition and they promised not to say anything about Greer's possibly horrendous living condition when they were going to visit her. To their surprise, Greer was living in a grand townhouse. Greer admitted that she was a madam albeit accidentally. She reluctantly admitted to Lola and Kenna that it seems she has quite a knack for it. Greer has prepared champagne and the three toast to being "fallen women". 
Later that evening, Lola and Kenna went back to the townhouse to deliver some Damask fabric for Greer. Lola is a bit uncertain whether they should deliver the fabric to Greer in person or just leave it at the door since it was night time and as noble women they shouldn't be seen around a brothel. Kenna told Lola that she'll give the fabric to Greer. While there, Kenna saw a man being collared and led around by one of the "working girls". Greer explained that every man has their own desires and fantasies. As long as they were harmless, she caters to everything her customers need.
