The GRAPHIC server character set is designed for IBM DB2 compatibility. It is a subset of Unicode, but only supports fullwidth characters. For example, the ASCII script is not supported in GRAPHIC. For more details see 1) the International Character set Reference, or 2) the Getting Started with international character sets Orange Book.
