The following is a personality profile of Robert Graves based on his work.
Robert Graves is shrewd and somewhat inconsiderate.
He is carefree, he does what he wants, disregarding rules and obligations. He is laid-back as well: he appreciates a relaxed pace in life. But, Robert Graves is also cautious of others: he is wary of other people's intentions and does not trust easily.
