    Raven Ladies are dark fey, the cruelest of the fair folk. Not part of either Seelie or Unseelie Court, these fey warlocks roam their home woods, searching for dead bodies. By devouring the corpse’s eyes, they can see what killed it–and whatever the killer was, it then becomes the sole target of the Raven Lady’s wrath. They are not enforcers of justice by any means, nor do they care for those they avenge–they simply kill those who offend their warped sense of right and wrong. They appear as dark, almost lethally thin twins of dryads, with twisted, talon-like claws and dark, raven-feathered wings. While a Raven Lady’s face is beautiful, it is an atrocity to her own eyes, and she attempts to destroy anything that reflects her visage back at her.

    Eldritch Blast (Sp)
    A Raven Lady uses an eldritch blast as an 8th level Warlock.

    Invocations (Sp)
    A Raven Lady uses invocations as an 8th level Warlock. The DC’s of her invocations equal 14 plus invocation level. Her eldritch blasts typically take the appearance of a black, raven-shaped bolt of energy.

    Typical Invocations Known
    Least– baleful utterance, eldritch spear, see the unseen; Lesser–beshadowed blast, curse pf despair

    Change Shape (Su)
    A Raven Lady can assume the form of a Raven, Giant RavenFB, or Murder of RavensToM.

    Devour Sight (Su)
    As a standard action, a Raven Lady may eat the eyes of any dead creature. Doing so shows it whatever killed the dead creature to the extent that the dead creature saw it.

    Mirror Breaker (Su)
    A Raven Lady is so repulsed by her own face that any mirrors brought near her are destroyed. A mirror openly displayed within 60 ft. of a Raven Lady is destroyed. If it is a magic item, it may attempt a DC 19 Will save to avoid being destroyed. A creature native to the Plane of Mirrors, such as a Nerra, takes 5d6 points of damage each round it is within 60 ft. of the Raven Lady, Will DC 19 half. Both saves are Charisma based.

    I no longer actively read the forums, and probably won't respond to any PMs. I'm fine with people using my homebrew in anything, including fan-compilations and wikis, as long as you credit me.

    Will DC half for Mirror Breaker? *whistle* Them's be some majorly screwed reflective people. I would make it will negates, but nauseated instead, or something of the sort. Maybe the Lady has to be aware of it and can use a glare attack to destroy it? Because merely being in her presence seems a little much to me, if the setting happens to be extraplanar-heavy.
