Commander Dvaniur Grail is the headmaster at the Windom Military Academy at Eies. He is a stern educator, with close connections within the Empress’ castle. Grail&'s massive mechanical arms can rip a mech in two, but his curious, reserved nature may prove critical as Jonothon unlocks the mysteries of the Dark & Day

He reminds me of Neinhalt Sieger from Samurai Showdown. Except he has two big arms instead of one.

While I imagine he can throw one hell of a punch, I suspect buttons completely defeat him.

Now is your chance to win both published books in the Dark & Day series!

Step 1. Simple go to the Dark & Day Facebook page [link]

Step 2. Add your comment on the Wall with what it is about Dark & Day that interests you!
Is it the epic fantasy v. scifi style? Like the YA genre? A particular character? (like Jono? Commander Grail? the Sage of Ages?) or a particular art work? (Tyler Edlin’s City of Eies? Andrew Hou’s Withering Mark cover? Robert Kim’s Jono at Al Jebra? Lokman Lam’s Grown up Keiko?)

Step 3. Look for a winner on the Dark & Day Facebook page!

I like it but a technical note,
for have such arms he need to have some kind of esoskeleton on the back(as the weigth of the arms reflects on the backbone ).
But still a very good character

You're right that he would need additional support. Grail has a reinforced (internal) skeleton that supports the weight. In Dark & Day, they use sprites (nano machines) that are programed to build cybor-like installs in the body. The arms are attached though. Sprites build all sorts of installs from energy cannons, brain enhancements, links into the code world, chemix poton kits, and more. It's kind of like x-men, but through technology :)
