You may have created me, but you were never my father. Fathers are kind. Fathers protect you. Fathers raise you. I was protected by the monks of Azarath. I was raised by my friends. They are my family, this is my home, and you are NOT welcome here! Azarath Metrion ZINTHOS!
~ Raven, as she denounces Trigon as her father while proceeding to completely destroy him.
Raven is one of the five main heroes of the 2003 animated series Teen Titans and the movies Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo and Teen Titans Go! vs. Teen Titans. She is a half-demon, half-human hybrid from the inter-dimensional world Azarath, one of the five founding members of the Teen Titans, and the daughter of Trigon the Terrible. Initially, she is an aloof ally to the Titans, only with them because she has nowhere else to go. Overtime, however, she starts to open up to them, especially Starfire and Beast Boy, being lifelong best friends with the former and having an implied crush on the latter.
Raven is the half-human daughter of Arella Roth, a human woman who managed to find her way to the other dimension of Azarath/a native of Azarath and Trigon the Terrible, a dread and powerful demon lord who intended to use his daughter to open a portal that would enable him to enslave Earth. As a result of her race, Raven has powerful telepathic and psychokinetic abilities that are destabilized by her emotional level. If she fails to keep her negative emotions tightly in check, her psychic power runs rampant, breaking and destroying her surroundings until she calms down. Presumably due to her birthplace, she is also versed in a wide variety of occult lore and a skilled practitioner of magic. She also has the power to astral project, dispatching her soul from her body to teleport herself or others, and to heal, though it's left unclear if these are Psychic Powers innate to her or mystical powers she has learned from her studies.
Raven is seen as dark and mysterious throughout the series. Despite her withdrawn nature, her outfit isn't particularly conservative, as it leaves the entirety of both her legs exposed. It is mostly made up of her favorite color, dark blue/indigo. She usually wears a blue cloak with a hood, with matching blue ruffled ankle-boots with blackish-grey soles, with a one-piece bathing suit-like long-sleeved shirt that is blueish-black with cuffs at her wrists of the same blue of her cloak. On her cloak, she has a circular black/red jewel set in a gold plate that attaches the whole thing together; it covers her T-communicator and it's fixed to beep/glow when there is trouble as seen in some episodes. She has very pale, almost gray skin, which makes her appearance somewhat demonic.
Raven, being half-demon, has used her demonic appearances on several occasions, though often the use of her demon form causes her to lose control. Raven's demonic form has proven effective in getting results, such as bringing about Doctor Light's swift surrender, and scaring Gizmo in Crash to get him to repair a virus-contaminated Cyborg.
Because of her background and powers, Raven is a solitary, quiet individual who prefers to avoid interacting with others much. She displays no emotion; knowing when she does it causes her power to go haywire and is normally very serious which counteracts with people like Beast Boy and Cyborg's upbeat and energetic demeanor. She rarely speaks, and when she does, it is a biting, acerbic wit at best and condescendingly scathing at worst.
One of Raven's notable traits is her constant broodiness and her tendency to almost never smile. She much more prefers to meditate in silence and can be cold to people like Terra or even her fellow Titans nor does she divulge about her past which they deem her as "creepy". However in later episodes she becomes more open with people she trusts such as Robin. Because of her purpose to bring her father to Earth, Raven can be intensely self-loathing and more than often isolates herself from the rest of the Titans. She also opens up to people whom she thinks to understand her such as Malchior, a character from an enchanted book who was, in reality, corrupting her with dark magic.
While inside her mind, Beast Boy and Cyborg discover Raven of her that she normally keeps hidden from the other Titans; despite her insistence otherwise, she actually does think Beast Boy is pretty funny, even if she doesn't laugh out loud at his jokes, though she also secretly worries that he doesn't like her. Additionally, although she insults them frequently, Raven is in fact very regretful and apologetic about every little thing she said to Cyborg and Beast Boy, to the point that she spends an entire journey through a maze apologizing for all of it (much to their annoyance).
As the half-demon daughter of the inter-dimensional demon Trigon, Raven is very powerful and displayed a vast amount of abilities. It was noted by her father Trigon that she only uses a small potential of her power, and if she lets out her full inner demon, she may reach near-infinite power.
Raven is able to conjure and project darkness from her body, usually in the guise of her soul-self, an astral projection in the shape of a shadowy bird that she can use to see through and manipulate objects. Though the soul-self is normally intangible, it can be disrupted by magic and concentrated sound. Due to the time she spent with her father Trigon, Raven has gained a vast array of knowledge over the mystical arts, enabling her to cast magical spells for a variety of effects, such as healing, pryokinesis, and advanced energy wielding capabilities.
Raven is able to teleport herself and others with herself to different locations, which is taxing her more than her other abilities. She can also use this power to travel interdimensionally with relative ease.
