Raven is a priestess at Avalon by the time Morgaine arrives. Since she has taken a vow of silence, very few ever hear her speak. The only times she speaks is during a trance, when the Goddess works through her. She is seen as the prophetess of Avalon. Her dedication to her vow of silence is complete. Even when she receives severe burns once, she never uttered a sound. She remains in Avalon until she decides to travel with Morgaine back to Camelot for a Pentecost feast where the Holy Regalia is scheduled to be used in a Christian service. After so many years in Avalon, Raven is terrified of the outside world. She speaks only sparingly and is afraid of everything. When people see Raven with Morgaine, they often believe that Raven is mute or dumb and pay her no attention. She is not as strong as Morgaine, and after she pushes her power to its limit in helping Morgaine appear as the Goddess, she dies from the shock and exhaustion.
