Raven is one of three
servants of Asuka R. Kreuz, and his right-hand man. Raven debuted in the
novel, Guilty Gear X: Lighting The Argent. He also made appearances in
the Guilty Gear X and Guilty Gear XX story, and appeared in Guilty
Gear 2: Overture.
Raven is an immortal from birth,
Raven's body will completely regenerate even if it's reduced to ash. He ceased
aging at the moment of his first "death," and has lived for over a
thousand years. Raven
is an immortal who was born in medieval Germany, over a thousand years before
the events of Guilty Gear. As a young man he was recruited into an army
and became an accomplished knight, waging war in foreign lands. During one
campaign he and his allies were cut off from their supply lines and were
ultimately ambushed in a night raid. After attempting to flee on horseback he
was struck down by a hail of arrows and was then brutally stabbed to death by
However, rather than
dying, he found himself in a strange "cylindrical space" filled with
window-like mirrors. There, he had the sensation of being caged with predatory
birds, and felt their stares boring into him, eventually transforming into
excruciating pain that pierced every inch of his body until he experienced the

teleports himself and Jack-O' away.
Raven and Jack-O' were
watching how the events were developing while waiting for Asuka to return.
When the Gear Maker is finally back he send Raven to Sin
and Ramlethal's location while he went with
Jack-O' to Illyria Castle.
In the final battle
when Sol was trying hard to stabilize
Justice and was at Ariels mercy, Raven showed up alongside Ramlethal who could
