By dropping golden beads near a snake, a crow once managed to have a passer-by kill the snake for the beads. Grown ravens are so skillful at interpreting the behaviour of other animals they usually get most of the prey. Welcome to the gathering of the dark messengers. Our presence is an omen of ill fortune and determination. No other creature can encompass the wit and carnal willpower to endure any misery or even death. Be it the shadow of the flock, the shape of one bird's sillouette or even the mark of a single black feather, we embody the symbol of artistry and survival. In essence we are the carriers of every soul that has beheld the darkness and conquered it.
