A History Lesson
Raven has bright blue eyes that contrast beautifully with her short black hair. Even at middle age, she is still very pretty.
Raven inherited the Traveler’s Haven from the previous owner. She first began working there when Orias caught her trying to walk away without paying for her food. He set her to work waiting tables to pay it off. At the end of the day she proclaimed she would never set foot inside his door again. He smiled at her and replied “I bet some day you’ll be asking me to sell you the place.” The next day she walked through the doors as soon as the tavern was open and set to waiting tables. Orias said nothing, just smiled. At the end of the day she made her proclamation again, and he replied “You’ll own it someday.” This went on for ten years, until one day, Orias replied “You own it today.” The day Orias retired, Raven was a mix of emotions. She was honored that he would entrust his beloved inn to her, but sad to see him go. The sadness was eased by the fact that he still comes in every day, only now as a noisy and complaining customer, always arguing with Raven about the food, the prices and the service. Many times he gets up and makes his own food because she doesn’t “do it right”.
