|History||Unlike other Persians, Raven was not born in the lap of luxury, being a pampered pet to some rich human. Her hometown was the dusty, crime-filled town of Pyrite, in the Orre region. Raven was raised by a group of Pokemon outcasts who could not find their place in the few Pokemon "gangs" wandering the Pyrite area, and they taught the Meowth everything she knew. Survival skills, how to defend herself in battle, everything she would need to know about the area-all learned from her fellow outcasts. However, it seemed that Raven was best in combat, and when other Pokemon would attack them, she would help fight them off. After nearly two years had passed living as outcasts, after Raven had evolved into a Persian, she decided to do something about this. She didn't want any of her friends to live in shadows, fearing attack every time the sun set, forced to steal from humans for food. The Persian rounded up all of the outcasts and presented the idea that they form into a group, a clan of sorts. Normally the outcasts were scattered around Pyrite, but grouping together would provide better protection from the raids and they could gather food more efficiently. Many of the Pokemon thought it was a bad idea, and left, but those who had raised and known Raven decided to try out the idea first. When night fell and the heavy footsteps of Pokemon could be heard outside of their hiding place, all of the outcasts who had come together were wide-awake. Normally they were heavily outnumbered, and had to flee, but this time they drove the raiding Pokemon away with only minor injuries. After the failed raid, the outcasts decided to create a new gang-no, a clan, with a Skarmory named Steeltrap as their leader (Raven was offered the position for getting the idea in the first place, but she thought she was too young for an important role like that.) There were no more raids, but tension was high between the new clan and the other groups in Pyrite.|
Those who had refused the idea of a clan at first started to actually come and try to get into it. The few wild Pokemon that came into Pyrite not knowing the ways of the town were always given by the clan made up of former outsiders. For years, the clan grew slowly, until one of the Pyrite gangs started their first, real attack in a long time. It was in the late afternoon when they came, and the clan was taken by surprise. There had been pretty much no attacks before now, and in the confusion, they took the fight outside of the town so no humans would be harmed (Derek, a Manectric, had been shot before for trying to steal food.) It took only fifteen minutes for most of the clan to sustain serious injuries from the attacking gang; they were completely outmatched, and still outnumbered. It was during this battle did Raven receive a scar over her eye. The huge blow came when, before the battle could draw to an end, Steeltrap was killed, and the clan was left without a leader. Injured, humiliated, and crushed with grief, the clan buried Steeltrap and headed back home to heal. While Clarie, a Blissey, began to take care of everyone's wounds, Raven was once again offered a chance to become leader. Everyone else was reluctant to take the job now that their old leader had been killed, so Raven accepted. For weeks, she worked hard to bring back the strength of her clan, get enough supplies for them all, and figure out a way to get rid of the lust for vengeance many of her clan members held. Raven would not go into a battle rashly with so few numbers, and had to satisfy their bloodlust.
But she had no time to do so, for the epidemic had struck Orre, and many of her clanmates got the disease. Clarie could not do a thing for them as they slowly, painfully died, and Raven was horrorstruck. Pokemon after Pokemon began to drop dead from the virus....then stood back up again with the intent to kill and eat everything and everyone in their paths. Pokemon all around Pyrite were going the same way, and most of the humans were already dead. So many were dying, and Raven had to kill her own clanmates, her own family, to keep them from continuing their rampage. Her entire clan was completely wiped up, many were dead, most were infected, few managed to escape. But Raven stayed in Pyrite-it was her hometown, the only place she'd ever known, and if she was a real leader, Raven would find a way to save it from any more destruction because of these undead Pokemon.
*****After travelling with her rival Phoenix, facing many new faces and challenges, she was finally able to rest from protecting the town. Before they could make it to shelter Raven was suddenly taken from the ground by a large Braviary and carted to Lilycove where she ended up stuck with a haughty, ill-tempered Glaceon. Where it not for the serious of unfortunate events that left the Glaceon running for his life and her booking out of the town she would not have ended up at the coastline, hitching a ride with a thankfully non-infected Lapras. Unfortunately her foul luck caught up with her and the pair ended up caught in a rogue wave that split the two apart and sent Raven crashing into the shores of Sky Pillar, drenched and stranded.
|Appearance||A normal Persian, except for the scar over her eye. She wears her amulet coin and bracelets on her front paws.|
|Personality||Raven is a gifted fighter, and while she has a quick temper and a sharp tongue she tends to let things go more often than not due to her relaxed nature. Very few things get under her skin but when they do she tends to retaliate very quickly.|
|User Notes|| -Raven learned Thunderbolt because one of her clanmates had the TM and knew how to work it because he was a former trained Pokemon. (Part of the original Profile)|
-Had a rivalry with Phoenix the Ninetales, since the Ninetales was also a gang leader.
