Romance Raven (A to Z, R)

21 April, 2022

One does not think of ravens as romanic birds but they seemed to be overseeing all sorts of meeting across the town.  They watched, their caws were encouraging and soft, for a crow, and seemed to sooth those courting.  It was a strange sight to be sure.

We are just friendsThe romance ravens first appeared in the city of Lutekia shortly after the Sundering, Lutekia had been one of the major centers of several gods of love and courtship before the Gods War and it is thought that the emergence of the romance ravens is tied to those gods in someway that remains obscured by the confusion of that period of time.

An adult romance raven ranged from twenty-one to twenty-six inches (54-67 cm) in length with wingspans from forty-five to fifty-one inches (115-150cm) and they can weight up to four and a half pounds (2 kg).  Their feathers have a rose-red tone under the black rather than the usual blue-black and their eyes flash gold when they catch the light.  While they do still eat carrion they seem embarassed by the fact and will not do so when they know a person is watching.

The presence and voice of the romance ravens tends to turn the thoughts of people nearby to courtship and romance, which definitely seems to be supernatural in effect, but it is a minor and subtle effect, nudging not pushing emotions.

The romance ravens themselves mate for life and they can live for some time.

Notes: I love ravens and these ravens help you feel the love.
