|Daughter of The Evil Queen|
- “What if I want to choose my own happily ever after?”
- ―Raven Queen +
With no desire to be the next Evil Queen, Raven Queen stands against following destiny and is conjuring up one herself where she can lead a happy life, putting the destiny of Apple White, her pre-determined "nemesis," at risk. Nonetheless, Raven still cares about Apple's feelings and tries to reach a compromise.
Despite being destined to be the next epitome of evil, Raven Queen is nothing but a kind, very smart, friendly and down-to-earth girl, born with a sarcastic side who wants to stay true to herself. It is because of this that she fights to change her destiny and started the Rebel movement at Ever After High. Even so, Raven is a considerate person. She is a music lover, has a beautiful singing voice and she plays both piano and guitar. Raven is easy to get along with and will convince you to be free- even if that means keeping your destiny.
Raven has soft purple eyes and long, wavy black hair with purple streaks. Her hair around her face is pinned up from middle part and out of Raven's face. Her clothes often have a color scheme of violet, black, and silver, representing a rebellious style. It is shown her clothes have chains as a belt for her dress.
As each Ever After High student has their own fairytale-represented name, Raven gets her name from a raven, the dark bird representing evil.
Settings are the places where fairytale characters live and their stories are based. Raven Queen's setting is her family home, Queen Castle. It is chilly with lots of unoccupied rooms and Raven lives there with her father, The Good King, and their servants, Cook, Cook's four year old twin boys called Butternut and Pie, and Ooglot the Ogre.
Raven Queen is the daughter of The Evil Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The Evil Queen is currently locked up in Mirror Prison. The Good King is Raven's father who she has a good relationship with. Her fathers cook's four year old twin boys are called Butternut and Pie which you could say are Raven's family friends, Ooglot the ogre is also a family friend thus, the family's servant.
As the daughter of the Evil Queen, Raven used to have trouble making friends, but as the Conflict went on more people started to see her for who she truly was. Raven's best and longest friend is Madeline Hatter. Madeline has always supported Raven's choice to rebel and is there to cheer Raven up when she is sad. In turn, Raven supported Madeline when she wanted to run for Royal Student Council president and help her save her home, Wonderland.
Raven also names Cedar Wood and Cerise Hood her best friends. Cedar and Raven spend a lot of time together and Raven supports and comforts Cedar when she worries about her inability to tell a lie. Cerise and Raven have a even closer relationship is some ways, as Raven was the first student Cerise entrusted with her secret. Raven tries to encourage Cerise to be braver about who she is and not to let her secret hold her back, and Cerise is always one of the first to defend Raven from the Royals.
Although he is a Royal, Raven always considered Dexter Charming a friend. Despite Dexter's own choice not to re-write his destiny, he encourages Raven to stand up for who she truly is in "The Storybook of Legends". Dexter even spoke to Raven about his own doubts regarding his destiny, and was one of the first Royals not to fear her because of her mother. Raven in return encourages Dexter to be true to who he is and not live his life in his brother's shadow, advice which Dexter happily takes. For the majority of their friendship, both Raven and Dexter wanted something more, but it wasn't until after "Date Night" that they became a couple.
One of the most uneasy friendship at Ever After High would have to be the one between Raven and Apple White. Apple is Raven's future nemesis, roommate and opposition in the Destiny Conflict, yet despite their different opinions causing them to clash dramatically on a number of subjects, they still chose to consider each other friends and continued to care for the others' well-being. In "Thronecoming", Raven was willing to give up her freedom for the sake of Apple's Happily Ever After, but it was under false pretense set up by Headmaster Grimm and Apple didn't want Raven to give up her future because of a trick. Later in "Way Too Wonderland", Apple fully realized how dangerous signing a destiny could be, due to the actions of Courtly Jester, and helped Raven destroy the book and end the conflict for good, fully restoring their friendship. Although Apple and Raven still quarrel over much smaller matters, they know their friendship will endure.
Raven ended up making friends with many students at Ever After High after they accepted her for who she was. These friends included Dexter's sister Darling Charming, a strong and like minded friend to Raven, and Ginger Breadhouse, who was just as ignored as Raven was because of her mother, but Raven helped Ginger earn the trust of the other students by encouraging her to open a bake-stand.
Raven is also good friends with Draculaura from Monster High.
Raven's Boyfriend is Dexter Charming. Dexter had a crush on Raven for a long time before they started dating, but Raven only ever saw him as a close friend, although she was very fond of him. In "True Hearts Day Part 1", Dexter leaves a love poem on Raven's locker, signing it D. Charming, but Raven thought the note was sent by Dexter older bother Daring Charming instead. Raven never liked Daring very much before, seeing him and vain and arrogant, but she was flattered that he thought of her like that. In "True Hearts Day Part 3", Raven approaches Daring and thanks him for the poem, but Daring tells her he never wrote her a poem and Raven realizes it must have been from Dexter. She was initially pleased by this, but when she went to talk to Dexter she saw him sitting with C.A. Cupid, and thought she was too late and that Dexter had moved on. Raven continued to be friends with Dexter and never mentioned the poem or Cupid to him, but her feelings remained. After many awkward conversations and failed flirting attempts, Dexter plucks up the courage to ask Raven out in "Chosen With Care", this surprises Raven but she happily excepts. In "Date Night", Dexter takes Raven on their date to the Multi-hex Theatre and they have a great time, but the date is cut short when Ashlynn, Poppy, Cupid and Blondie get lost in the Dark Forest looking for the Blue Moon Forest Festival. Raven and Dexter go with their friends to rescue the girls and find them safe in the Forest, then Raven and Dexter finish their date dancing at the Blue Moon Forest Fest, after this they became a couple. Raven is a loving girlfriend to Dexter and appears to care for him deeply.
Raven has a pet dragon named Nevermore who she got in her Legacy Year. Raven also had a puppy named Prince which was given by her dad. Her mom turned it into a bone-rat.
Raven can telekinetically control or levitate anything. She has trouble containing her spells due to her temper. Raven's power can transform her or anything else around her. Normally, Raven can wilt flowers. When she purposely makes magic, it turns into a shape of a flower before turning into flames whenever she levitates. If Raven tries to cast a good spell, it often backfires as Raven is aware that: Dark Magic + Good Intentions = Catastrophe.
Like Apple, she can summon the help of creatures, but Raven's help comes from less favorable creatures, such as bugs, bats and Goblins and Raven must summon them by demand rather than singing or polite request.
In Way Too Wonderland Raven signed The Book of Legends which gave her her full evil powers that she instantly could control. Later on she continued to train her magic so she could use it to good but not with good results. In Dragon Games she had learnt finally to use her magic for good. Her magical powers, be it good or evil, are so strong she could even break a spell her mother had cast around her.
Raven was a kind and loving child and she didn't give much thought of her destiny. One day, her father the Good King gave her a puppy, which she called Prince. Her mother the Evil Queen, tricked Raven into giving it a "special potion", it being a transformation potion. Raven eagerly tipped the potion over Prince and he transformed into a bone-rat called Bubonick. Raven then swore to herself never to become evil like her mother.
