Description

Appearance::
Image

Discription::
Raven has a deep gothic look about her. Her stature and clothing really tell of strength and darkness. Raven has long, pitch black hair that reaches just to her waist. It is layered slightly, and dead straight, hanging with seemingly no life. Her hair also frames her face, with a quite a large front fringe, which helps give her a dark, rather intimidating look. Her facial features are actually quite delicate, with only slight lips and a small, soft nose. While they are delicate, Raven manages to distract from the seemingly "weaker" elements in her face by highlighting and darkening her eyes. Her eyes are also quite small, yet intense and with the help of darkened make-up, Raven manages to make them successfully intimidating. They are a deep, dark brown, however in most lights appear black and cold, much like the rest of her appearance. Both eyes also have a sort of depth to them which is enhanced by her ability.
Standing in stark contrast to her dark hair and eyes, Raven's skin is a white, porcelain colour, which if it ever saw the sun would burn quite effectively. While her skin appears flawless (just as she likes you to think), it's unnatural white colour actually has a lot to do with her unhealthy love of the dark. Raven has a very slim figure, which, as she loves to let everyone know, is hour-glass. Raven also dresses to impress. She prefers tight black corsets that manage to work with her thin figure especially with the boning of the corset panels. Depending on her mood, Raven has an assortment of skirts. Most are long and reach to the floor, with thick volumous black fabrics which mask the thinness of her legs. The others are short, poufy skirts which reveal her knees, and then the rest of her legs are covered in lace stockings or striped socks. Almost all her clothing is black with small strips of red or white. The only other colour found on her body is her dark red nail polish, which she likes as she claims blood red or scarlet is the colour of revenge.



Name:: Raven Umbra
Nickname:: None
Age:: 18
Gender:: Female
Role:: Female 7

Crush?:: Jack Kingsley
Gf/Bf?::

Weapon(s):: She considers her main one as her mind, however she also has two small throwing knives. The only other thing she carries is a small needle which is dipped in poison. She prefers light travel.

Extra Skill(s)::
Raven considers her other skills as her smooth tongue. She tends to make people believe what she wants them to and can get her way out of almost any situation.

Talents/Powers::
Raven can speak to animals. She also has a rather unnerving talent of talking in people's minds. She can't read them, but only speak into them and if they direct their thoughts to her, hear those. These are the easier to use of her talents, but she also has a few more dangerous, yet also more difficult abilities. Raven can also create illusions and project feelings. She can worm her way into the deeper part of a person’s mind and allow them to see things she wants them too while also projecting feelings she wants to use to manipulate them. This however takes more effort, and if her concentration slips she can lose them, and have to start all over again

Strengths::
- Her manipulative personality
- Her appearance
- Skill with knives
- Knowledge of the mind
- Her imposing and strong aura in which she carries herself

Weaknessess::
- She has a strong fear of electricity and water
- Her strong emotions that can suddenly change
- Her hunger for power and vanity
- Her weak physical side
- She doesn't accept help

Image

Personality::
Raven has a rather complicated personality, due to having a few almost insane parts to her. Originally, Raven was an average girl, though she did suffer from depression when she was ten due to a sudden change of scenery. A few years later, Raven's powers became far more apparent (her illusions now added to speaking into minds and talking with animals). Her parents thought she would sink back into her depression however instead she seemed to grow more bitter and determined, with deadly hatred building to a need to survive and even dominate. She kept this under lock and key however, preferring to appear brooding and rather silent. This was quite unnerving as she also had a nasty habit of pressing feelings of fear and even admiration for herself onto those around her. However due to her weakened state this did not last as long as Raven as she would like. She has a dark and deadly personality, though she herself believes herself to be in the right.
She claims that while she wants revenge (to those who label her a freak), the revenge would take the form of justice. Those that meet her at first are often charmed by her words, and she has a kind of snake tongue that can really make people believe what she wants. When you first talk to her, she seems to be quite sane and even intelligent with seemingly fair and also well-thought out schemes and plans for what she will do once she gets out. She claims that it is only fair that humans get their own justice, though of course fair and in her silky voice explains that even those seemingly innocent people should have supported herself and the others and therefore probably should pay some sort of compensation. Of course it wouldn't be too much, she is fair, and as she keeps talking you eventually realise that she is more twisted and too full of bitterness to truly seek justice. She is almost delusional, truly believing she is just and would be a good person to keep justice on the world. She claims money and power are not the main reason, but just so happen to be a side line to what she truly wants- justice/revenge.
She also struggles with vanity, and loves to spend time straightening out her hair and organising her clothes in order to give the most stunning and startling effects.
Raven, like her personality, also has a rather dark and twisted sense of humour with a streak of sarcasm here and there. She also is quite negative in the way she thinks, though also over ambitious. The strange thing is that she also has a soft heart for certain people, yet finds that she easily is hurt or angered by them. Once a wrong has been committed, Raven has a hard time fixing the relationship and prefers to break it off and make sure the other person will never do it again. Due to being constantly hurt by those around her, Raven is more of a solitary person, and prefers to either work alone, or as a dictator where she can make sure people do what she wants and won't be able to hurt her emotionally. Overall Raven is really an emotionally broken girl.

History::
Raven was originally named Melissa by two loving parents. In her very early childhood, Melissa had been in the bath. Unknown to her mother, she'd had her stereo playing next to her. As she was hopping out, she accidentally pushed the device into the water. The electrical current went straight through the water and into her body.
She was rushed to hospital, and fortunately survived with nothing too severe in terms of injury, yet a harsh memory that stayed with her for life. She was an only child and went to a private school and was bestowed many gifts, however was not overly spoilt. At school she had some good friends, however due to her father’s job was forced to move to a new city. There she went to a public school, and struggled to fit in. She was thought of as a snob and her bubbly personality was crushed and she suffered a mild depression. During this, her parents grew quite desperate and used lots of different medications. A lot were newer designs with little testing and mixed with certain other ones creating strange hallucinations and seemed to give Melissa severe headaches and migraines. Throughout it all, her parents continued to support her, believing the medications were last resorts for their precious daughter. Five months after her fifteenth birthday, Melissa came through the depression, however seemed to have an enhanced mind.
Originally she had always been able to speak to animals and talk to others minds, though she kept this a secret. When she began to notice that she could form illusions and emotions, she had tried it on her mother…
This did not end well. Her mother freaked out and her and her husband began to fear Melissa. They often kept her in her room, not daring to come into contact.

Raven

Raven allowed her almost black irises to skirt over her rather extravagant room. The rarest, shadow of a smile lifted her lips, before they returned to her normal smirk. She crossed over to the nearby wardrobe and quickly glanced through a tirade of clothing before picking out a simple black corset and long, ankle length skirt. It would do for today.
She'd been there a day already, and she'd been quick to adjust it wasn't as though there was much to miss back home. Her lips twisted in a sudden sneer before it disappeared. At least here she was able to be her own master and not be locked in her room all the time- oh no, she was simply locked in a mansion. Big diff. According to Raven it was a prison, a luxurious one sure, but a prison.
After dressing and pulling a brush through her dead straight hair, she made her way to the kitchen. She was hungry and she wasn't about to wait for permission to eat. As she finally arrived, she found herself in the presence of two other inmates. She smiled inwardly at her own rather pathetic joke. One of her hands rose to her hips as she gave both of them a thorough looking over.
The girl- average she thought rather vainly to herself. Truly this wasn't quite the case, but to Raven as long as it flattered herself it didn't matter. The male however was interesting, though she was careful to hid it with an indifferent mask. Vain perhaps, but hey so was she and they had their reasons. He evidently wasn't shy, which was good to know. Raven detested shy people. After her quick examination, she turned, without apparent interest, to the fridge to try and decide what to make a meal from.
She briefly thought of giving them a quick scare by talking into their minds and perhaps pretending to read into their minds...The thought appealed to her, however currently she had no idea what they were capable of, so she decided against it. Later. Once she knew what they could do, then she would do it. No need to reveal anything about herself just yet.

Marlow followed Scott over to the boy with the teddy bear. Her face was full of worry. She listened as Scott spoke to him. He was being very kind, but the boy still seemed frightened. She crouched down close to Noa, carefully spreading her wings so they wouldn't touch the ground. "Hi there. I'm Marlow. Are you okay?" she reached out her hand and gingerly ran a finger across the spot he hit on the branch. "Does it hurt?" She was reminding herself of her mother, and the memory came as a pain in the stomach. She kept her face straight though. Suddenly, she jerked her arm back, scared that one of them might have seen her scar. How could they not? It was thick, pink and long. She tried to smile at Noa.

Jack watched Raven walk in and he checked her out, the same way she had done to him. "I'm Jack Kingsley." He said and made his way over to her. "Your hair is beautiful." He said honestly. He was focused on the way it shined in the light, rather than her face to look for a reaction. Before she could say anything though, he continued. "What's your name?" He smiled at her, rather curious what it might be. He also wondered about her powers. He rubbed his chest and abs absent mindedly before turning it into a stretch.

Mrala

Mrala ignored Jack as she continued her search for food, which wasn't well. She had opened the first cabinet, finding bowls, plates, and glass cups. Then she looked in the nest cabinet only to find salts, peppers, seasoning, and sauces. This place really is organized, she thought as someone else entered the kitchen. A girl. Mrala turned her full attention on the girl. She had long black hair that seemed to give midnight black a run for it's money. The girl also moved more like a snake then a human, but of course, this didn't strike Mrala as odd. They were all here, because they were different, and well, they really were different.

Although Mrala tried to refocus on her search for food, she couldn't stop herself from turning her attention back on Raven. Something was definately not right about the girl and she could feel it in her guts... A feeling that just turned into something alot bigger then a feeling. Pain blossomed at the center of her forehead, and she saw stars for a moment. She heard someone else enter the room.

Mrala mentally shook herself as she turned to see Blake, their caretaker. Someone she hated since she first laid eyes on him. The morning before, she had met him and had almost set him on fire, had it not been for those gloves of his.


Blake

Blake walked into the kitchen wearing all black clothing. His black T-shirt and pants complemented his dark black hair and eyes that seemed to see right through you. "Jack, go put on a shirt, and don't let me catch you without a shirt, outside your room." His words sounded careless and bored but everyone in the room could tell there was a command underneath it all. "And I believe our breakfast is in the dining room. Mrala go fetch the others, they're are out in the yard." With that, he turned, walking toward the dining room only to stop when Mrala spoke up.

"Um, let's see... How about a no?" He turned to look at her but she was already walking out of the kitchen. He knew she had an attitude and that she was dangerous. He had read her file, and he didn't like it. She was just a liar, a theif, and a killer. He had no idea how the government even caught her, and that he needed to keep an extra-eye on her. Turning back around, he walked into the dining room to find bowls and plates already set. There was oatmeal, pancakes and waffles on the table, along with different types of syrups and drinks.

Jack turned his attention away from Raven to see Blake walk in the kitchen. Before he could say anything, Blake was giving him an order. Jack raised an eyebrow and began making his way toward Blake, and the door. He chuckled and grinned at Blake. "Don't be jealous cause I'm sexy, man," he joked. "Wait does this mean I have to wear a shirt while I swim?" Before Blake could have said anything, he continued. "You know what, you're right," he said and leaned in as if telling him a secret. "I don't want the girls to get too excited over there." He heard Mrala be completely defiant towards Blake right as he was leaving the kitchen. He took note of her name. "I'll get the others, after I put a shirt on." He pointed at Blake and backed out of the kitchen, he nodded and winked, still joking around. He jogged all the way back to his room and pulled a tight black t shirt over his wavy blonde hair. He ran his fingers through it a couple of times, and it stayed in place, perfect as always. Then he began wondering down the hallway to the yard.

Jack and Marlow turned to see Blake walking towards them and Noa. "Hey, like my shirt?" Jack grinned at him.

Marlow gave Jack a weird look, that was a weird question to ask. She shook her head and turned her attention back to Blake. "Hi there." she said. She had introduced herself to him the night before. He was like their care taker. He had seemed like a really nice person to her, then again most people do. "Noa seems really upset. Are you here to help him?" she asked, her eyes full of curiosity. Her stomach growled.

"You sound hungry, want to go get some food Baby?" Jack asked her.

"Yeah, but I want to make sure Noa is okay. You go ahead." She said, not looking at him. Jack shrugged and walked off, passing Scott on the way. "Hey biggie." He winked at him, then broke into a jog for the door. His stomach was growling too. He made it to the kitchen and began piling his plate with delicious looking food. He wondered where the two other girls went. He looked around for Mrala, but she was no where to be seen. And the girl with the raven hair wasn't in there either.
