In Dark Prince, Raven is an orphaned American who spent the last years of her human life using her telepathic abilities to hunt murderers. During her vacation to the Carpathian Mountains to "cleanse her mind," she mentally comes across Mikhail's loneliness and pain. He claims her as his lifemate and she becomes the first female human to be successfully converted into a Carpathian without losing her mind. She is strong-willed and dangerously compassionate.
- Raven was the first lifemate found in the series.
- She was also found to be human, giving new hope to the Carpathian people.
