Every generation has its heroes and those who bear notoriety through the ages. Of those whose acts of heroism and selflessness are beyond compare, there are fewer. The people of the Warrior Nation know that in the lives to follow their own, the name of Chief Raven Spirit will forever be cited as an example of the latter.
It was said that the war between the Union and the Crown was in its infancy when the small, slightly-built, boy first communed with the spirits and took on the name Kangee. The name meant "Raven" in the tongue of his people though the portent of this choice went unremarked, especially as many others that season were also favoured by that particular bird. While the War of Independence burned itself across the land, the boy prospered under the guide of his spirit, demonstrating a boldness in battle unequalled by the other young people of his age. And that was unusual, for prior to his communing with Raven, Kangee had been a peaceable child. This new-found fearless aggression saw him chosen to lead warriors in the defence of the People's lands whenever the Union or Crown ventured too close. The Youngblood took to the role with great panache and a frenetic vigour, calling forth with great ease lethal spirit claws with which to rend his foes asunder. Over time, the name Kangee was forgotten and those who knew him called him simply 'Raven Spirit'.
It was not until the last winter before the Union drove out the Crown from the Americas that the true scope of his bond with the spirits was revealed. His braves had been slaughtered in an ambush by Continental Marines. Wounded, barely able to raise his weapon, Raven Spirit - by now a Warrior Nation chief - raised his head to the sky and let out the keening cry that was the raven's own. When the spirit of an ancient warrior, many centuries dead, coalesced in shimmering blue spirit fire around the young chief - this was startling enough. When that Summoning also unleashed a plume of all-consuming spiritual fire that obliterated the terrified attackers, Raven Spirit fell into a deep trance.
Marked by intense visions of the Great Spirit, Raven Spirit emerged from his meditation with the dawn and brought with him a new vision for his people. Abandoning the ways of divided tribes and embracing a more ancient path to reunite with the native tribes of humanity across the globe. It was as part of the Warrior Nation that they would save its people from the growing darkness and also extend protection to all the peoples of the Earth.
Despite doubts and many dangers, Raven Spirit has built alliances towards some Grand Paradigm that only he can truly comprehend. Now nearly a hundred summers old, Raven Spirit leads his people with a benevolent hand, adhering to the guiding light of the Great Spirit infusing him with a vitality that would not seem possible.
