I don't think 'quite badly' is true, but then I do think that Strength 9 is really high, even for Graveclaw, despite the fact he's an absolute brute (I am right and it's 9 for Strength, correct?)
Also, I think Weapon Skill 8 might be a tad too much. From what I understand of Graveclaw, he's a hack and slash kinda fellow. I wouldn't have thought there was much skill involved, more brute force, which is why a high Strength is acceptable. Whilst his WS shouldn't be LOW, I don't think it should be so high
I think Graveclaw strength and toughness are fine but maybe his other states are too high, his speed is alright too his current stats Speed:upright 5 when on all fours 9, 4 when on the roof or walls Agility:6 Weapon skill:8 Ballistic skill:1 Raw Strength:9 Toughness:8 Tactical Knowledge:2
maybe this would be better Speed upright 5 on all fours 6 4 when on the roof or walls Agility:3 Weapon skill:4 ballistic skill:1 Raw strength:9 Toughness: 8 Tactical knowledge: 2
For Graveclaw I'd imagine his WS would be 6 (push it to 7 if you want) but his technique skill would be quite low as he powers his way through most opponents. This would represent his fighting style I think?
Toughness is fine as I imagine Graveclaw is not only tough but has high regenerative abilities.
Strength's a little much for a 3rd gen vamp I would think but that's mostly by the newer fluff (novels etc) which Graveclaw himself predates so it could be left as fine.

Speed upright 5 on all fours 6 4 when on the roof or walls Agility:3 Weapon skill: 6 This is his ability to fight in a bestial manner which whilst deadly would be not that bad without his great strength Raw strength:9 Technique Strength: 3 Graveclaw relies on brute and bestial power, not studied and learned fighting skills like a swordsman would Toughness: 8 Tactical knowledge: 2
I think the ratings break down something like this:
1. Joe bloggs 2. Percy the village thug 3. Skilled veteran 4. Your bog standard vampire 5. Average vampire lord, i.e. the mode of vampires who have (un)lived for centuries. 6. Dedicated martial vampire. 7. Has spent centuries honing his skill. 8. Absolute master of battle, could defeat you with his pinkie 9. Once captured a fortress by accident 10. This planet only exists because he can't be bothered to get out of bed
