Graves was among the Assembly members present for Aaron, Call, Tamara, Jasper's, and Alastair's trial. Because the students escaped the custody of the Magisterium and promptly caused a panic, particularly because Aaron was a Makar and important to the mage community, they were furious. Graves was among those who addressed the group, and Aaron quickly defended their actions. Graves got into an argument with Call, who was able to silence him with undeniable evidence: Constantine Madden's decapitated head. After getting over his shock, Graves announced that their war against the Enemy is over.
