Grey Matter is the Simplicitrix's DNA sample of a Galvan (also known as a Ranaesapien) from the planet Galvan Prime. He is voiced by Richard Horvitz.


Grey Matter is a grey-tan skinned, frog-like, bipedal alien that is only four inches tall with large red eyes, which have rectangular pupils. Grey Matter has a black jumpsuit with a red stripe down the middle. His suit collar is red. He wears red, fingerless gloves with a black rectangle on the back. He has a small black stripe on his head. Grey Matter wears his Simplicitrix symbol is his back.


  • Grey Matter's small size belies his great calculative and technical intellect. He can create complicated machines from spare parts, understand the function of any device at a glance, and make sophisticated repairs to complex machines, (such as a warp-drive engine). Grey Matter's intellect serves as a problem solver and analytical help in difficult situations. This allows Grey Matter to think more strategically when brute force is inefficient.
  • Grey Matter can sometimes manipulate living things by stimulating certain parts of their nervous system, if such beings can be controlled by external stimuli.
  • Grey Matter's size allows him to squeeze into small spaces and can climb walls due to tiny suction cups on his skin. He also has sharp teeth and his slimy skin makes him difficult to grab.
  • Grey Matter appears to be stronger than he looks.
  • Grey Matter is amphibious and has gills.
  • Grey Matter has a long prehensile tongue, owing to his insectivore nature.
  • As a Galvan, he also possesses a 'pre-brain' which deals with all basic bodily functions.
  • Due to Alan's abilities, Grey Matter has the ability of fourth wall awareness.


  • Grey Matter's small size makes him unsuitable for physical battle, so he must outsmart his enemies in a fight. Animals like dogs and cats can be a problem, as they may see Grey Matter as a chew toy or food to them.
  • Despite having vast intelligence, Alan lacks comprehension of most of what he says whilst Grey Matter, and retains little to no information thought of while Grey Matter.
