|~ Raven to Yang|
Raven Branwen is the mysterious mother of Yang Xiao Long and Qrow Branwen's twin sister. She was originally a member of Team STRQ, though unlike most Hunters, she has little issue killing and is described by her brother as a dangerous person. Raven has a high "survival of the fittest" mentality in which she is rather indifferent towards innocents dying if they were too weak to defend themselves.

Intelligence: Gifted (Raven as a child, with no formal training was able to get into Beacon through sheer skill, which normally requires several years of training at a combat school to do so. She then went on to train directly under Ozpin and became skilled enough that he entrusted her and Qrow with their powers, as well as becoming a part of his inner circle. Afterwards, she continued training on her own and eventually came into her Maiden powers, and trained further, using them to the point that she was able to perform her storm feat with such control that no one knew she was doing it, despite her standing right in front of them, which even Mercury, who was able to determine Pyrrha's semblance, which she managed to keep hidden from the world for her entire life, in a few minutes, was fooled by Raven)
Weaknesses: None notable
- Semblance: Kindred Link: Raven's semblance allows her to create portals in the vicinity of people she shares a bond with. Though not combat applicable, she can use these portals for quick appearance and hasty retreats. Other people are also able to pass through these portals.
- Magic: Raven bears the power of the Spring Maiden, a magical power that existed in Remnant for generations. It gives Raven control over the elements and weather. With these powers, Raven can summon lightning, amplify her strikes with electricity, create widescale storms and strong gusts of wind, as well as the ability of flight. However, Raven is most proficient in using the ice control aspect of her powers, evident in her battle with Cinder and commentary. She can create and shape ice to her will, such as freezing opponents, shooting ice spike projectiles, creating platforms and wield a variety of ice-based weaponry.
