Graius is also famously known for his excellent use of the phalanx formation which he perfected. In this formation all soldiers stand shoulder to shoulder with their spears forward. This massive block of raw power has already made many enemies flee in absolute terror. Graius was also one of the advocates of extending the length of the spears of the vanguard soldiers.
