Grace Choi, born Shay Li Wylde, is a friend of Anissa Pierce.
Living from foster home to foster home, Shay Li Wylde lived as an orphan towards the age of sixteen, in which both her adoptive parents died and Shay trafficked into child prostitution.
Resurfacing in Freeland under a new identity, Grace Choi sought employment at the Red Lipstick Bar as a bartender. Spending free time at the library, she met Anissa Pierce, the two befriending one another through a shared interest in comics; Grace offers Anissa to join her in a cosplay party the following night.
The two women continued to bond but suffered to stay in contact. During her bartending, Grace witnessed Anissa becoming romantically involved with Zoe B. Becoming distant, she initially pushed Anissa away.
