Merits and Flaws

  • Friend to Spiders: Ravenna may have a bond to birds, but she is still a sluagh, and thus, closer to spiders. They are her friends, her confidants, and some might say, her spies.
  • Winged: Her wings are the most glorious thing about her, she might say. They allow her to fly high above everything.
  • Curiosity: Ravenna has a curiosity that sometimes gets the best of her.
  • Surreal Quality: Though the Mists still protects her from mortal detection, there is something about Ravenna that mortals find fascinating. At inappropriate times, they will stare at her and strike up conversation in hopes of getting to know her better. Worse still, those mortals who are of less savory nature will choose her over other potential targets for their illicit acts.

Dedicated to Locke and Slaine

Sonnet XVII
by Pablo Neruda
I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.

A transfer student from the east coast, Ravenna has arrived in Prospect at the start of spring 2014. She doesn't seem to know anyone, just another student running around campus. Easy to miss, really.

Ravenna is just another commoner to arrive in Prospect. So far, the Sluagh doesn't seem to be looking to Oath herself to any particular noble, preferring to keep to herself overall. There's whispers that say she's good with birds, easily understood with those wings of hers.
