About Graves…. (Probably spoilers)

From J.K. Rowling's official website:

5. Why did revelio undo the effects of Polyjuice Potion?
It didnt. Grindelwalds Transfiguration surpasses that of most wizards, so he used a spell, not a potion, to take on the appearance of Percival Graves.

From the Pottermore MACUSA essay:

Of these twelve, only two survived into old age: Charity Wilkinson, who would become MACUSAs third President, and Theodard Fontaine, whose direct descendant Agilbert is the present day Headmaster of Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Also of note are Gondulphus Graves, whose family remains influential in American wizarding politics, and Abraham Potter, whose distant relationship to the famous Harry Potter would be uncovered by eager genealogists centuries later.

In the 1920s the President of MACUSA was Seraphina Picquery from Savannah. The Department of Magical Law Enforcement was headed by Percival Graves, a well-respected descendant of one of the original twelve American Aurors.

According to the above information, there was a real Percival Graves. His current status is unknown, and it might be answered in a future film.

I was wondering myself. Hope they explain that in the future. Colin Farrell was great in this movie.
