This article contains spoilers about part of Gravity Rush.
She is later revealed to actually be good, as she is trying to thwart Kat because Alderman D'nelica claimed that he would send a rescue team to the kids trapped at Boutoume if she can keep the missing parts of the city from returning. This was likely a trick in order to further turn public opinion against Mayor Bolsey, and ultimately remove him from power.When Nushi attacks, Raven and Kat form a truce to defeat Nushi. This truce strengthens into a friendship as the plot continues.
Raven then spends the rest of her time in Boutoume, desperately trying to find the entrance to the Ark. When Kat eventually finds the entrance, she and Kat start gathering all the Lost Children in the Ark so that they may go back to Hekseville. As they ascend to Hekseville, Kat is thrown from the ark, though the ark later makes it back to Hekseville.
She is the younger adopted sister of Zaza, and her real name is Sachya. She was among the children trapped at Boutoume when their school bus fell off the edge of Hekseville. Raven appears much older than Zaza because time progresses quicker outside of Boutoume. It is unknown how she got back up to Hekseville. In his account of Sachya, Zaza reveals that his family found Sachya as a baby and raised her as a part of their family.
During the postgame story content taking place in Eto, it is revealed that Raven is a member of the Eto royal family, as evidenced by her possession of a Guardian, in the shape of a crow. The third Creator, Bit, refers to her as Kat's "other half," although whether this is a figurative descriptor of the close relationship the two share or a more literal definition is unknown.
Initially; Raven appears to be cold, indifferent, and rarely speaks, opposed to Kat's outgoing personality. At times, Raven displayed a fierce and impulsive side. When the latter learns of Kat's actions of recovering the other parts of Hekseville, she attack the other shifter in assuming she's working with Bolsey. While seemingly ruthless, Raven does have a kind heart, wanting to do everything in her power to save the kids and her adopted brother Zaza from Boutoume, even making herself look like a villain.
After the events of the first game, Raven became much nicer and more outgoing, while holding onto her emotionless demeanor. Raven became a loyal friend and ally of Kat over the sequel, willingly to help her out whenever she is in trouble.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
The first boss fight against Raven is fairly straight forward. Just keep gravity kicking her whenever you get a chance. Occasionally she will come down to the ground. During these parts its most effective to also go down to the ground and use normal kicks against her.
Using Gravity Typhoon on her is extremely effective, as it allows you to drain Raven's health quickly, and she will not be able to attack you.
The second fight against Raven will take place inside The Pillar. This battle is different from the other boss battles in the game. You are not actually supposed to attack Raven during this fight. Instead you must avoid getting attacked by Raven as you are falling. This battle is also fairly straight forward. Raven will shoot balls at you. Just dodge as they come towards you. Just keep dodging them until you get to the bottom of the pillar.
