In this guide, we’ll break down all three of Grace’s natures, and explain the pros and cons of choosing each. There’s no right answer for how you should play Grace in Stray Gods, but if you’d like some help weighing your options, read on ahead.

We avoid them as best we can, but this guide contains slight spoilers for Stray Gods: The Roleplaying Musical.

What Does Grace’s Nature Impact?

When you first meet Calliope during the game’s opening, you’ll perform a song with her, being given your first trait for Grace during the game’s first song.

You’re given the choice between making Grace more Charming, Kickass, or Clever, each with its own color and symbol associated.

Throughout the game, you’ll speak to several characters, and there are some responses limited to certain natures, rendering you only able to select them if you have that trait.

For example, in tense situations, a Kickass Grace can say something imposing or make it clear she’s not to be messed with, while Clever or Charming Grace will need to choose one of the other three options presented.

Certain outcomes in the game are easier to achieve with certain natures, as each trait offers something of its own to lend to Grace’s investigation.

Songs are not limited the same way, though. If you’ve chosen a Charming Grace to start the game, you’re not locked into only choosing green answers in songs – that’s up to you!

There are achievements/trophies for finishing a full run of the game with a specific nature, meaning you’ll need to play multiple times to receive all three.

That said, each playthrough offers something different, like the chance to make different choices or side with different characters than before.

You Choose A Second Trait Before Act Three

You’ll spend the entirety of Act One and Act Two limited only to your original trait choice, but just before you go to trial in the third act, Grace gets a second trait.

Here, you can choose either of the remaining traits that you didn’t choose at the start of the game. Doing so allows you more dialogue options during your trial.

This trait is not reflected when you get your end-game achievements, though – those are only given for your original trait.

Should You Make Grace Charming, Kickass, Or Clever?
