Grel is the small woodcutter town Ember grew up in. It is described as sunny, but no one there seems happy. There is a small creek that runs nearby it. Grel is a deep in the woods and it takes two weeks to get out of the woods when walking. None of the town people are very creative. Ember is the most inventive person who lives there. Sicreet ordered Grel be destroyed when he found out a Leverage was hiding there.
