Yup, i agree with you.
I believe it IS a gria. My problem with that wonderful artwork is that EVERYONE else is a KNOWN race and they're ALL talking and INTERACTING with one another. The lone Gria on the other hand is just staring at the viewer like the ring girl or something 0_0.
Not only did SE just copy and paste him/her there, there's only ONE of them. I hate that SE can't just tell us important stuff like that instead of leaving it up to guess. Even in the interview IDIOTIC questions were asked which had no real insight to the game other then the transfer thing and several others. Most of their responses were... "This is what we hope for" "This is what we expect to do".
Sheesh!!! 5 years making a game and you don't even know what it's going to be like?! >_< Why can't you just talk like a normal person, DUMBLEDORE?! HUH?!!!!
