Profile of Raven: Details
She is on the smaller side of medium -- weighing around 55 lbs -- with fine, angular features and a faint touch of awkwardness to the length of her tail, legs, and ears. Her fur is sleek and black as a crow's wing, its dark uniformity unmarred by any other coloring. An assortment of fine scars mark her forelegs and face, with a much larger scar in the hollow of her throat, just below where her jaw meets her neck. These scars are mostly hidden by her fur, however, and are only visible if she moves a certain way or if viewed at the right angle. Her eyes are a striking electric yellow in color.

"Advocates indeed share a unique combination of traits: though soft-spoken, they have very strong opinions and will fight tirelessly for an idea they believe in. They are decisive and strong-willed, but will rarely use that energy for personal gain – Advocates will act with creativity, imagination, conviction and sensitivity not to create advantage, but to create balance. Egalitarianism and karma are very attractive ideas to Advocates, and they tend to believe that nothing would help the world so much as using love and compassion to soften the hearts of tyrants.

Advocates find it easy to make connections with others, and have a talent for warm, sensitive language, speaking in human terms, rather than with pure logic and fact. It makes sense that their friends and colleagues will come to think of them as quiet Extraverted types, but they would all do well to remember that Advocates need time alone to decompress and recharge, and to not become too alarmed when they suddenly withdraw. Advocates take great care of other’s feelings, and they expect the favor to be returned – sometimes that means giving them the space they need for a few days."

She's always been somewhat shy and a bit of a hermit. She's observant and highly intelligent -- particularly in the areas of medicine and botany -- but her preference for staying close to home has left her with a limited understanding of the world outside of her pack. She is often very insecure about herself and possesses a minor inferiority complex, constantly comparing herself to others (particularly her siblings). She possesses an innocence and naivety that sometimes leaves her vulnerable to manipulation and heartbreak, but as she's grown older and adapted to the challenges life has thrown at her, she's learned to be stronger, bolder, and less passive. She has little tolerance for being deceived, lied to, or taken advantage of, but prefers to resolve conflicts peacefully rather than by violence.

Raven was born and grew up in Redhawk Caldera. One of her first friends was Tiger Blackthorn, who got her interested in medicine and started her on the path to earning the trade. When she was nearly a year old, she went searching for a loved one and ended up getting very lost. She briefly stayed at Donnelaith before attempting to find her way back home... only to become even more lost. It took her many months but she finally found her way back home just in time to help her mother and the rest of the pack cope with her father's sudden death. A series of traumatic events in her childhood made growing up difficult for her, and she spent much of her youth dealing with varying degrees of post-traumatic stress. Fortunately, as she matured into adulthood, she got past it and ended up mostly normal and well-adjusted.

She never aspired to power or status, but suddenly in the early spring of 2018, she became Alpha of the Redhawks when her sister, Towhee, decided she no longer wished to lead. This came at the same time that Raven grew close with Quixote, ultimately becoming mates and conceiving their first litter. Due to her position as alpha of the Redhawks and eldest female/matriarch of the Redhawk family, Raven chose to keep her surname rather than take up Quixote's. After a traumatic attack at the hands of her brother, Screech -- whom she immediately disowned and sentenced to death -- she gave birth to Vasa, Kite, Owen, and Phoebe Redhawk-Voulge in a slightly early delivery on June 25, 2018. Two puppies, Seagull and Grey Jay, were stillborn. Raven blames Screech for the stillbirths and Kite's birth defect.

Several months into her tenure as alpha female of the Redhawks, one of her closest friends (Ceara) was taken captive by the wolves of Blackfeather Woods. Unaware of her whereabouts, Raven threw herself into searching for Ceara with such fervor and dedication that her attentions were drawn somewhat away from her role as leader of her pack. Sensing an opportunity, Caiaphas -- a well-respected member of the pack -- challenged Raven for her place in the pack. With the help of her family and fellow packmates, Raven managed to defend her position but the challenge and the allegations of incompetence that came with it seriously undermined Raven's confidence in her ability to lead and made her question if she actually was the best leader for the Redhawks. After some consideration, she elected to step down from leadership to focus instead on raising her children.

In the spring of 2019, when her pups were fully grown and independent, after much consideration Raven reclaimed her position as alpha female alongside Quixote. Due to the trauma of losing two of their pups during childbirth the prior year, it took a great deal of soul searching for the alpha pair to decide they wanted to try having another litter. The decision was made, though, and Raven became pregnant in late April. A series of crazy events happened in the weeks after that, initiated by Towhee and Phox's announcement that they were leaving to establish Asterism Grove. This left the Redhawks in a precarious position numbers-wise, and Raven worried about what their low membership might mean for the future of the pack. Around this same time, her beloved sister and last remaining littermate, Wildfire, passed away from some sort of cancer in her throat.

Tired of Heron Lake Plateau and all the sour memories it contained for her, Raven convinced Quixote to move the pack to the neighboring Golden Glade to make a fresh start in a setting that was safer for young pups. Around that same time, in an interestingly beneficial twist of fate, Rannoch and Liffey Frostfur showed up on her doorstep with their family in tow and proposed merging their two families together, with Rannoch and Liffey serving as leaders alongside the Redhawk alphas. Raven and Quixote agreed and, combining the names of the two families, changed the name of the pack to Frosthawks. So inspired was she by this new leaf she'd turned over that she has considered changing her own surname to Frosthawk, though she hasn't actually made up her mind about it yet.

Soon after they settled in Golden Glade, Raven gave birth to three healthy puppies on June 30, 2019 -- Bateleur "Wildfire" (a tribute to her late sister), Oriole "Orr" (a tribute to a brother lost in infancy), and Yossarian Redhawk-Voulge.

Note: Raven's mother, Fox, passed away immediately following the birth of her youngest siblings -- Towhee, Titmouse (Screech), Phox, and Orca. Because she nursed and raised the pups (with the help of Finley Blackthorn), she often thinks of herself as their mother and has strong maternal feelings for them.
