About: One of the few people who are truly close to That Man. He excels at combat, due in no small part to his immortality.

While his role in That Man's plans is unclear, what is known is that he manipulates events around the world by controlling the flow of information. No one knows Raven's true history and his origin is a mystery. Why he fights for That Man is also a mystery, although his loyalty is absolute.

Outline: Born during the reign of the Holy Roman Empire, he lived a very average middle-class life, until he was enlisted as a soldier and sent far away. It was in this foreign country he had his first near-death experience. (*For more information on this arc, take a look at the short story inside Guilty Gear 2 Overture's setting booklet.)

While the reason is unknown, the next moment he wakes up where he thought he died, in the pool of his own blood. But he, was somehow, unharmed.

Going through an infinite circle of death and life, he has lived for close to 1,000 years. Unable to die, in a constant state of perpetual life, he has lost interest in life. Finally, he can no longer be moved by any of his five senses. Pain becomes the only source of pleasure.

Personality: Raven is an unapologetic masochist, and in his own words: "The closer I come to death, the more I feel alive... We must first die in order to truly live." Apparently, the only thing that makes him feel alive is the terrible anticipation of imminent pain. It isn't difficult to notice the many needles and spikes protruding from his body.
