Raven Hart

A thief, a trickster but at least she's honest...

0 · 216 views · located in A sparkling world...

a character in “Spring Rain and Havoc”, as played by headwig1010

Description

Raven is an 18 year old petite 5'3 woman with a small waist. Her face is pale as she rarely sees sunlight as she works in the shadows. Her eyes are deep navy blue and her hair is black and shoulder length. Her cheeks are pinched, her nose small and her lips thin better suited to smirking than smiling.

Abilities: Raven was brought up by thieves it is all she knows. To survive she has become a skilled pick pocket and lock picker. Her only weapons are two long knives strapped into her boots. She is skilled with her knives but knows little of other weapons. Raven also has a basic healing knowledge due to the obivous need to care for her own injuries she can heal moderate damage but nothing to sevre also due the the nature of her work she has a base knowledge of posions mainly sleeping drugs.

Trinket: A white teardrop pendent on black leather string stolen many moons ago from a drunk traveller boasting of his adventures...Raven wasn't impressed. Raven has worn it under her shirt ever since.

Personality

Raven is mysterious and cold. Due to the nature of her work trust is a foreign notion to her she relies on her wits to survive this makes her flighty. Raven dislikes cramped spaces and often operates in the open. She enjoys a good drink and a laugh often at other's expense. She hates the wealthy and refuses to steal from those worse off than her...mostly. Anything she says should be taken with her pinch of salt but she will always keep her word.

History

Raven was raised by a band of traveling thieves who roamed the small low lying towns. It is the only life Raven knows and possessing no other skills it is a life she is doomed too. She only recently traveled to Mara's Ridge which is rather daring of her but money is short and there's more money in the town... and enemies.

So begins...

The beast swooped down in a flurry of wings. Though it resembled a kangaroo rat, it was bigger than a bulldog, and teal fur bordered a scale-covered stomach. It whipped its tail at Glis. She yelped, leaping and clutching her skirts, and her lavender eyes narrowed. Raising her hand, she launched a fireball toward the rat. The fireball connected, and the rat screeched and thrashed.

But more rats descended, and they weren’t just after Glis. Squealing and slashing, they picked their targets. The market square surged with the clatter of feet – parents snatched their children, merchants gathered their wares, and those who could scattered.

“Leave – me – alone!” yelled Glis. Each time she thrust her hands, blue fire streaked the air. It leapt onto the rats, and the air filled with the scent of singed fur. Her eyes shifted – did anybody else stand a chance? She could see the "flock" crowding around others. She couldn't keep her eyes off her enemy for long, though. Its powerful tail ripped into her dress. Glis screamed and lobbed another fireball. She was too busy to notice, but the gem around her neck began to glow.

Raven hissed as she probed her wound lightly. The wound wasn’t too deep luckily but her arm was going to hurt like hell for the next few days but no major damage had been done. Next time genius; use a larger dose for larger people. Raven thudded her head on the barn wall as punishment for her stupidity. The guy just head to wake up didn’t he, still the day wasn’t a total loss Raven thought twirling the purse between her fingers. 5 gold coins, not bad for a nights work.

Yawning, Raven stood up from the rafter of the barn leaping down lightly onto the floor, slinging her pack over her shoulders as she walked out the barn. An actual bed tonight yay laughing lightly Raven continued down the small track leading away from the abandoned barn, whistling softly. Her rare moment of peace was interrupted by a scream to her left. Raven froze; both fear and curiosity battling for dominance finally giving into the later raven ran towards the direction of the noise, knives drawn.

Raven ran swiftly using the undergrowth as coverage until she stopped on the edge of a small back alley leading into Mara's Ridge. Pausing behind a tree raven observed the alley. Raven’s breath caught in her throat, she has never seen such monsters. Sorry lass you’re on your own. Raven turned to leave the poor girl behind. “Argh” Raven yelled her neck burning where her pendent lay over her chest. However Raven had no time to worry about that as the beasts turned and threw it’s self at her.

Running on pure adrenaline Raven stabbed the creature in its underbelly releasing a disgusting torrent of black blood in its wake covering Raven arms.

What the hell is going on?

Raven ripped her blade out of the animal, disgusted. She twirled her blades waiting for another attack. At that moment a shout rang out through the street, "If you have a weird, glowing gem... over here!" looking down raven saw her gem indeed was glowing. Well I’ve got nothing to lose strength in numbers and all that.

With that in mind, Raven ran into the market square dodging the fleeing shoppers and merchants. So this is how this place looks in the day time…though I imagine there’d be fewer beasts normally. Finally raven reached the woman who had been shouting; she was not alone however as the girl she had seen earlier had too reached the square. “Well, this looks like fun” raven remarked dryly too the two women “so any idea what the hell is going on”.

Before Raven got an answer another shout sounded "Mew, mew, mew!”. Turning, Raven cursed she knew that voice and to think the day couldn’t get any worse.

Great, in the space of 5 minutes I’ve been attack by monsters, chased by said monsters and now my only rival in the entire city had turned up and guess what she has a gem too. I really need a drink right about now.

“Hello Ada, lovely day for it isn’t it?”

The other three women approached, and each wore a gem like Glis's. She breathed a sigh but inhaled just as sharply when she spotted the blood streaming from Mew's injuries. "They really don't like you!" she said. By now, Glis too was bleeding through several rips in her dress. It was still in one piece, but it was strewn with dirt, as was the rest of her.

"Okay, okay." Glis ran her hands through her disheveled hair. Now that the four stood in one tight group, the remaining rats rushed them from the corners of the market. The guards cut down a few, but eight remained: three sprinted on the ground, and the rest whizzed through the air. "I, uh, didn't think this far," she said. "Make this count, ladies!"

Drawing on the rest of her strength, Glis flung an arc of blue fire at the ground. It burned in place, extending several feet into the air. Two of the charging rats skidded to a stop just beyond it, but one was unfortunate enough to tumble right into the spray. It flew backward, shrieking and lashing is tail. Sparks from the tail jumped onto one of the rats beside it, causing it to yowl and roll.

The third hissed at the wall of fire and tried to shoot upward, but one wing hung broken. Instead, it sought a way around the arc. Meanwhile, the five airborne rodents never stopped. The flames could not reach them.

OOC: ((HadoukenLSD, apologies if Mew's invisibility spell hadn't worn off yet. I wasn't sure if you meant "fading" as in "becoming visible over time" or "fading" as in "still invisible but won't be much longer." If she is still invisible, just lemme know and ignore the part about Glis seeing her. I'll edit it out in that case. :,D))

Mew nodded her head in answer to the blue-haired woman. "I know! I don't know why these guys wanna hurt me!" she squealed, watching as the woman's fire took out a couple more of the rats, leaving a scant few of the nasty animals to deal with. Well, she was sure that the blue-haired woman, herself and the brunette that had approached could deal with these last few easily.

She turned hurriedly to the other voice that had spoken, the one who knew her real name. Great. Just great. Of all the people in the world to be right here among the chaos, to be carrying a gem as well it had to be Raven. She graced the other thief's question with nothing more then a scoff, turning her attention back to the rats. She would deal with that later.

Hurling her body upward, her talons caught in the flesh of one of the remaining rats which flew overhead, bringing it to the ground shrieking. She tore it's throat out with her teeth, the thought occurring to her that she had killed more creatures today than she would in the average week. Aside from the occasional hunt, Mew was a fairly peaceful catling and rarely found herself in situations where violence was necessary. In her thieving, she was always the type to favor sneaking above direct combat, like most thieves. The blood which soaked her form disturbed her slightly, but she didn't have time for feeling unnerved, not in the heat of all of this.

Withdrawing her dagger, she impaled another of the rodents as it swooped at her, blood pouring from it's body as it twitched and died. Mew checked out the amount of damage she had done, only to meow hysterically as several more of the creatures remained, furious as ever with the four unfortunate women who held these bizarre gems.

Raven smirked when Mew scoffed at her answer, somethings never change. Before Raven could reply the rats attacked the group again well she’ll have to wait then. Twilling her blades in invitation Raven sliced deep into the Rats chest. Not the smartest bunch, are they?

Ripping the blade free Raven prepared for the next attack which came in quick succession with two other rats falling. Raven's wound felt like it was on fire, her muscles aching, she was unused to this type of fighting she was a theif not a warrior after all.

One of the rats let out a shriek turning raven saw Mew ripping her talons out of one of the rats. Raven’s back ached with an old pain, she too had felt those talons and she had the scares to prove it. She almost pitied the rat, almost.

Well at least we got even Raven smirked flourishing her blades.

Raven cursed when she saw the reinforcement, they couldn’t take on that many. Knowing she would regret this later but what choice did she have? “All of you with a gem follow me, I know somewhere we can hide”

Raven turned and ran east into one of the cities backstreets not checking if anyone followed her assuming they would. She could hear the shrieks of the monsters taking another left Raven reached a dead end.

Not pausing raven rushed to the back wall searching frantically ah here we are. Raven slid out one of the bricks in the wall pulling the lever inside, the wall shook slightly then half of it opened. Not pausing for breath Raven ran inside.

They'd better be grateful…

With just a split second to consider their odds, Glis balled her fists at her sides and ran after the stranger. She looked over her shoulder; the rats where busy enough with the flames and the guards that they might have a few minutes. Better yet, the guards might finish them off – she saw them dashing after the rodents even now.

At the opening of the passageway, Glis skidded to a stop. She looked around, biting her lip. There was no telling where this thing led. A squeal in the distance reminded her of one thing: it would probably lead somewhere monster-free. With that, she took a deep breath and charged in after Raven.

"So," Glis said, panting between words, "what is this place?" Her eyes moved from the bloody rips in her clothing to the same in Raven's. "More importantly, any first aid? Maybe we should go to my teacher's place..." As soon as those words left her lips, she cringed. "Oh- oh, great. She's gonna kill me."

Raven rolled her eyes. “Well if you want to run back to her be my guest but good luck getting past those monsters.” Sighing, Raven walked further into the room, it was rather small and musky but it would do.

Rave carefully lit the four small lamps around the room filling the small space with a warm glow. Home. It was a single room; an old bed covered with blankets lay in the far corner shoved against the wall. A rickety shelf lay to the right of the room filled with various (stolen) trinkets tossed carelessly on to it. Raven looked around again eyes flickering nervously to the newcomers. Too late to change my mind now.

Ignoring the women Raven walked over to an old oak chest at the foot of the bed pulling out various garments throwing them at the women. “These should fit, better you were these than them” Raven nodded towards the torn clothes they currently wore “and…if any of you are injured sit on the bed, I can heal the minor wounds or ease any major ones but I’m not a miracle worker”.

Waiting for a response Raven pulled her own bloody clothes of, hissing. She sat carefully on the bed fully aware of the mistrusting looks sent her way. Pulling a deep breath Raven held her right hand over the cuts in her forearm whispering softly. A warm blue glow spread from her hand trickling down her arms healing the smaller cuts and lessening the deeper ones.
A wave of nausea swept over Raven then but she pushed it down looking up at the women she said.

"You should also bare in mind that the amount of magic it will take to heal all of you will cause me to lose consciousness for at least 2 hours. So I must ask why should I heal you and leave myself vulnerable”

I’d really like that drink now.
