"grayman"

In the anime and manga D.Gray-man, the heroes fight murderous monsters posing as humans until the time of attack.
In the fantasy novel series "Wheel of Time", a Gray Man is a soulless assasin able to hide in plain sight - not by being invisible but by being ignored.

Is the naming based on some well-known myth that I have not heard of, or is it merely a result of creative people's instinctive distrust of bureaucrats?
