Character Information

Summary

Kera, or Raven as she's known to the legal system, works with Knight Errant as a CSI, specializing in forensic necromancy.

Background

As a child she always had a morbid personality and sense of humour, likely derived from the early deaths of her parents in the field. She grew up wearing dark clothes and tending towards a gothic fashion sense, until she Awakened at 16. That was when Ares started to take a real interest in her, and gave her a college scholarship in the hopes that she'd prove a useful magical asset. Due to her maudlin personality, she naturally gravitated towards medicine, specifically the study of how to autopsy. She found that working as a forensic pathologist would earn her enough to survive while engaging her interests.

One day, she fell asleep at work, typing up a report. She was awoken by the sound of scrabbling from the morgue, and when she went to see what it was, still too groggy to realise the potential danger, she found a raven trying to peck the eyeballs out of the corpse she'd autopsied earlier. When she tried to shoo it away, it spoke to her. Turns out it was one of the mentor spirit Raven's aspects.

A few days later, Raven (the mentor) asked why Raven (the mage) was content to just sit and do autopsies on bodies here, when there's so much more to learn at the crime scenes themselves. Unable to provide a satisfactory answer, Kera signed up to become a forensic necromancer in the field.

A few years later, she got her hands on what she thought was a simple variant on her existing Necro Summoning ritual, but accidentally made a Corps Cadavre when she tried it out. She learned some interesting things from the corpse, mostly about the shadow community, and decided she wanted to learn more. However, she was aware that the ritual she'd performed was illegal, and therefore in order to safely perform it again, she'd have to delve into the shadowy world she'd just learned more about. It was a difficult decision, but with the insistence of her mentor, she eventually took the plunge. Between the guiding words of her mentor, the information she'd gleaned from her interview with a corpse, and general office gossip, she figured out who Jenaveve Valenti was and what she did, and approached her with her plan before actually doing anything illegal. Jenaveve seemed to like the idea, as long as Raven stayed loyal to Ares. Of course, the extra pay helps fund her... less-than-legal research.

Affiliations

Contacts

  • Marion - Connection 6, Loyalty 2 - Fixer (PI) - Raven initiated contact outside of work, as they appear to be vaguely aligned in that they both at least have law enforcement experience and are in the shadows now, and Marion isn't also her boss.
  • Rebbeca Montez - Connection 5, Loyalty 2 - Detective (Coworker) - The two have seen each other around the office but are yet to work a case together. She doesn't know Raven Runs
  • Miguel Rivera - Connection 2, Loyalty 2 - Corpse Vendor - Marion introduced Raven to Miguel, saying that he'd be helpful for her particular talents in the shadows. They quickly bonded over shared interests.
