Newton Scamander met him whilst travelling to New York in 1926. Graves was the right-hand man to Seraphina Picquery and was given the task of investigating and tracking down Newt when creatures escaped his suitcase.
Personality and traits
As the Director of Magical Security, Percival Graves was somewhat of an authoritarian; being very shrewd and single-minded, but "not a bad guy".
Magical abilities and skills
- Wandless magic: Graves was extremely skilled in wandless magic. In the film version Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, he generated a forceful shockwave with a wave his hand that was able to tear apart the ground next to him and send the shredded pieces where his hand aimed them at. He also brought Newt's suitcase to him without using his wand, causing it to fly across a room and land next to him with a wave of his hand.
- Wand: As yet unconfirmed, Graves' wand is likely to have been made by the American wand-maker Johannes Jonker, who was renowned for his instantly-recognisable signature of having his wands inlaid with mother-of-pearl. Such a signature can be seen in all depictions of Graves' wand.
Behind the scenes
- Percival Graves will be portrayed in the film inspired by Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by Colin Farrell.
