Cypher Friends: Raven for the Cypher System

Raven is the half-human and half-demon daughter of an Azarathian human mother named Arella and the interdimensional demon Trigon. Raven was conceived as the result of Trigon's rape of Arella. Raven grew up in an alternate dimension called Azarath, with pacifistic inhabitants whose spiritual leader was the mystic Azar. She was taught to "control her emotions" by Azar, in order to suppress her inherited demonic powers. Initially it was feared that if Raven were ever to feel any strong emotion, she could then become possessed by her father's evil demonic energy inside of her.

During this time, Raven rarely saw her mother and grew detached from her. Upon Azar's death, Arella began the task of raising and teaching Raven. Around this same time, she met her father face to face for the first time. Soon after her 16th birthday, Raven learned that Trigon planned to come to her dimension; she vowed to stop him.

After the Justice League of America refused her help, Ra's Al Ghul approached her and helped her banish her father from Earth Eden.  She gratefully joined his Seven Soldiers of Victory and help usher in his New Age which resulted in the deaths of 94% of humanity, in order to save the Earth.
