Raven is a maverick trainer. A brutal rogue who fights when and how she wants. She is often brutal, cunning, cold, antisocial, and at times cocky. However, her strength is not to be underestimated. As Raven journeyed through Johto, Hoenn, Alola, and Unova rumors would spread of her attacks on various criminal factions. From Team Rocket to Team Skull. She had such a strong hatred for gangs, and perhaps even Pokemon themselves, that whenever a base would be found, she would not only attack the Pokemon, but would often target the grunts and admins within just to prove a point.
At first it would seem as if she was a vigilante. Seeking to utterly destroy criminal operations as she saw fit, while dodging police and other authoritarian figures. There was more to the story, however. When Raven was a young child, she was quite fond of Pokemon. She would often be found playing with her parent's Kirlia. Until one day, during a foggy night, their house was caught in the crossfire between two rivaling gangs. Magmortars had launched an all out assault, destroying the house entirely. In the chaos and confusion, Raven was barely able to escape. She hid in the basement, and awaited either for her parents to come get her, or, for the fighting to stop.
As the fighting quelled, Raven opened the door of their storm cellar to find that the house had been almost totally destroyed. And her parents gone. The only thing salvageable was their Kirlia which was still in her pokeball. Dazed and confused, she feared the worst. Raven grabbed the pokeball half conscious, and wandered amid the torn landscape, loosing most of her memory in shock. In a bizzare twist of fate however, Raven's parents survived. Knocked back by the battle, and were unable to save their daughter. For they had feared she was lost in the fire, as they couldn't get into the burning building. Both parents watched in despair as the house was engulfed in flame.
As Raven wandered the countryside, she met up with those responsible for destroying her home. Consumed by hate and rage, she challenged the leader of this criminal unit to a battle with her Kirlia only to be swept aside with little to no effort. Feeling pity, the leader of this band, took her in, and raised her to be a much stronger trainer. For the following years, Raven would undergo intense physical and mental training. From battles to strategy, she would eventually suppress her former memory in favor of her new one.
When she was finally of age to be a proper Pokemon Trainer, the leader of their organization gave her a present. A Noibat, whom she took to begin her training in full. The Noibatt would prove to be a resourceful ally and scout for her larger targets until it eventually evolved into a Noivern, which she still uses to present day.
Her current team consists of:
