Name: Ravanya Alice Maren
Wand: Alder, chimaera's mane core, 16.65"
Pet: Calico cat named Shelby
Physical Description: Standing around 5'2", Raven is rarely ever seen without Shelby somewhere in her near vicinity. She has cloudy green eyes and short, wild chocolate hair. Her skin is tanned, leaning toward a middle-eastern tone.
Brief Personal History: Ravanya was put into the foster system shortly after birth for reasons that she has yet to uncover. Although unaware of her half-blooded origins (though whoever placed her in the system did), Raven was placed with a magical family due to the possibility of her being a witch. At age 5, she was adopted by her guardians Sheila and Trevor Maren, both wizards. She began school at Ilvermorny (Horned Serpent) in North America at age 11, but transferred shortly after her birthday in March to Hogwarts, where she was sorted into Slytherin. She has always remained aware of her status as adopted, which has fostered a rebellious streak in her. This, paired with her knack for divination and susceptibility to premonitions, has gotten her into her fair share of trouble. It's unknown whether the transfer to Hogwarts was truly her choice or not.
Temperament: As mentioned above, Raven is rather rebellious and troublesome. While many Slytherins are driven by the need to succeed, Ravanya follows her need for answers. Some would say this might suit her better for Ravenclaw, but the lack of remorse or care that go into doing anything necessary to get those answers explains what questions the people around her may have, even if she still questions the sorting herself.
Special Possessions: Raven still has the blanket that she was wrapped in when she was given away by her mother. It is embroidered with her first and middle initial: RA. She'd never admit it, but she keeps it in her dorm.
Greatest Fear: Beyond anything else, Raven fears abandonment. The transfer to Hogwarts wasn't terrible for her, since she believes that it was her choice, but the idea that the things that matter to her could just leave her at any moment frightens the life from her.
Future Goals: Raven intends to become a Seer, where she can hone her divination capabilities and make sure others get the answers they need, much like she does.
