Basic Description: Corvus illustrates the phrase 'tall, dark and handsome' with extreme accuracy. He possesses a rugged physique, long legs, and a smile that could melt hearts. His rack is impressive by most standards, but it's his eyes that get him the most attention. Fiery like the magic he possesses, his eyes are bright and expressive, and have been the reason a number of does have found themselves at his side in the night in the past.

Temperment: Corvus is more than a little incompetent; really, it's a wonder he's lived this long. Despite his near uselessness, he's got a good heart, and is willing to help out in any situation.

Forced from his Silverthorne homeland at a young age, Corvus took to a fancy-free life of travel and fortune-telling. For years, he perfected his trade and saw the world. There were dangers and a few hitches, sure, but he managed to keep his hide intact.

And then Crowe entered his life. Turned it upside down. He'd known the touch of a doe before, but one had never managed to hold his heart quite like the little Oakfern had. Their relationship was doomed from the beginning - and some part of him always knew it couldn't last - but their eventual falling out took its toll.

Corvus ceased his traveling ways and has put down stakes in Blackwood, where he does his best to stay out of trouble.

Herd: Unaffiliated / Rogue (Blackwood?)
Herd Position: -
Mate/Consort: None.
Offspring: Numerous fawns from various does, though none that he'd outright claim as his own.

Follow Corvus' Storyline...

Autumn, 756: Birds of a Feather - Corvus finds himself lost in the rain-drenched jungle of Oakfern. Luck is on his side, though, and he stumbles upon an Oakfern doe who grudgingly agrees to guide him.

Winter, 756: Firelight and Moonlight - Having success in crossing into Blackwood to spend the winter, Corvus decides to practice his magic. An innocent daydream results in unusual results.

Spring, 757: Closer - Despite subtle warnings from an angry god, Corvus is eager to meet his friend and guide on the Oakfern border. The journey brings their hearts closer than ever.

Autumn, 757: Reminders of Her - After having reluctantly left Crowe behind to continue his journey into Windborne, Corvus spends the summer on the island. When the seasons turn, however, he has only one thing on his mind.

Autumn, 757: Old Wounds - Corvus again meets Crowe so that she can guide him safely through Blackwood. But something's happened since he's last seen her. She's been badly hurt, and is reluctant to tell Corvus why.

Winter, 757: Firelight - Corvus runs into a fugitive doe in need, and helps her as best he can. Her unusual magic manifests in a gruesome way when he tries to protect her from a pair of Blackwood stags, leaving Corvus shaken.

Winter, 757: Babes in Blackwood - It seems Corvus is a magnet for ladies in need. As he and Nuala are making their way through Blackwood, they stumble upon a small Oakfern fawn. The pair agree to bring her home, since they had planned to meet Crowe on the border anyways.

Winter, 757: Princesses and Oathbreakers - Things do not go as planned. As Corvus and his companions await Crowe's arrival, the Oakfern shaman Berach stumbles upon them, accompanied by Crowe and Elspeth. Berach attacks them, thinking them interlopers and oathbreakers. Corvus calls out from Crowe to help, but she mistakes Nuala and La'Neiya as his lover and daughter, and is heartbroken. She lashes out before running away.

Winter, 757: Downward Spiral - Berach has taken Nuala and La'neiya to safety, but there is no place for Corvus. He is quietly threatened to leave and never return. Confused and heartbroken about Crowe, he returns to Blackwood in a haze of desperation.

Autumn, 759:: Day to Day - It's been two years since the fiasco in Oakfern and, although memories of his former lover still haunt him, Corvus seems to have made a life for himself in Blackwood.
