One might say that like her brother, she dominantly got most of her looks from their father. Pale blue skin, Long, luscious ebony hair that falls to the small of her back when it is undone and white void like eyes that makes her appearance seem devoid of emotions.
The woman has just passed sexual maturity and stands at the height of 6', possesses a thin but slender form which lacks any substantial muscle due to her interest of books rather than that of the blade. However, she does enough exercise in order to keep herself healthy.
As far as her clothing goes, she wears a plain black dress most of the time, with a fur cloak over the top whenever she is out and about to keep her warm. After all, Viden is a cold place, but then again, she was born in the coldest season of Zi'da. So she embraces the bitter snap of the cold in hopes that she too would one day represent such a formidable force. Most of the time she wears thigh high heeled boots, mostly because the leather of the shoes, traps in the warmth and because she likes heels. To her, it is a representation of femininity and power.
Personality
Raven is an emotionless being, one who cares more for her work, than the well being of those around her. Research, decrypting and the goal to strive better than what she did the day before, is what gives her her drive. Often she is cold and she cuts to the core, especially when she feels that there is nothing to be gained. Most of the time, she fakes emotions in order to bring out certain reactions and actions from others. However, if she were to feel any emotion, it is the subtle hints of enjoyment, enjoyment for when she is manipulating another to further her own goals. She does not care if that person is hurt or even killed in the process, so long as she gains something from the event.

It can also be said that due to her upbringing, the Eídisi looks down upon pretty much everyone; that she finds and sees herself as better than those around her. If another being from a different race approached her, she would simply ignore it, pretend that it didn't even spoke. She will look past them and not even react to their presence, unless they decide to approach with violence. Although should a family member bring someone to her attention, she will look down upon them which much judgement. Why? Because to her, they are flawed wild beasts. Nothing more than cattle to be studied like lab rats.

She is not one to be slighted, in fact, should one decide that they wanted to wrong her, wronged being the definition of what she thinks has been wronged by her, then she will make sure to strike with a bloodthirsty stroke. Such an attack will most likely come from a third party, because she simply does not want to get blood on her clothes. To her, it is more annoying to get blood out of fur and cloth, than actually bother with killing or torturing the poor soul herself. Therefore, if she means pain to be inflicted, then she will enlist the services of a third party. Should she feel the need to do something herself and she has information that could devastate another person, then she will use it with no hesitation.

Raven prides herself of the independence that she has created for herself. While she did come from a rich family, she preferred to distance herself somewhat so then people cannot use that against her. It essentially, protecting them, but also protecting herself. After all, who knows just what kind of secrets that she may stumble upon. It is why she lives within a small house of her own, where the candles burn low as she studies and pushes through the work that must be done. After all, why would anyone pass up the opportunity for material that one could very well use to manipulate another? However, she does visit her family every so often, but it is rare for her to be seen with a family member out in public unless otherwise invited to.

Re: Raven Talius

History
Raven had a not very similar upbringing like her brother, Virikai. While she had been born into a very wealthy family, she wasn't as spoiled liked her brother. In fact, their parents were mostly focused upon him, the heir of the family. Although Virikai was the heir, she was still an heiress and an education was not something that the family laxed on. Private instructions were also something that their father was strict upon with the woman, for she had to be well educated in order to be able to marry to someone of high standards. To marry pure to keep the blood pure.

While her brother attended the academy at a young age, she didn't exactly have the same luxury, due to not having the same attention that her brother got. However, until she did get the chance to attend the academy, she had private tuition. At the age of ten she attended secondary education where she buried herself into the studies. It was also where she stumbled upon the topic of cryptography and linguistics. It was also when she learned the native language of the Ellune. She was also made to learn a bit about the ways of politics, simply because her father felt that it was the only thing that she really needed to learn. Why? Because apparently politics and marriage go well together.

Many strayed away from the dark Eídisi, for she was incredibly quiet and more committed to her studies than most thought possible. Research became her solid foundation for everything, especially when it came to things such as attempting to decode things. It was within these years that she discovered Cryptography and she became obsessed with breaking codes. Codes which were meant to hide secrets. To Raven, it encouraged her to push forward with things, to bury herself even further under stacks of books and paper. To her, it was her addiction, finding out people's secrets. In the early years of her adult life, most people saw her as a recluse and the last person that would help another. Although she was also seen as intelligent by most of her instructors and was very enthusiastic.

Everyone thought that she was the way she was, simply because of her upbringing, of being the youngest in the family and living in the shadow of her older brother. However, that was not the case, she preferred to be alone, the quiet helped her think and she could get lost for hours in her education. People just seemed to get in the way of such matters. Although, her father did require her to make an appearance every now and then. At those times, she learned that a mask of silence and an emotionless expression got her though most of those rather tiring events.

She continues to go to the Academy, but she also started working there as well, working as a researcher. Through her research of the Ellune, something caught her eye of the immortal that most in Viden were loyal to, Yvithia. Therefore, she learned about Tried.
