Tales of the New Teen Titans – #2

Origin of Raven. When Raven is wakened screaming by a nightmare during their camping trip, the other Teen Titans persuade her to share with them the story of her childhood and origin. She retells the tale of how her mother, Arella, involved in a mystic cult, was chosen to become the bride of the demonic Trigon. Abandoned by the demon after mating with him, Arella was bent on suicide when she was taken in by the pacifistic disciples of Temple Azarath, a group who had centuries earlier forsaken life on Earth to pursue their own nonviolent lifestyle. In their interdimensional world, Raven, Arella’s daughter by Trigon, was born.

Fearing that the child would bring evil among them, Juris, a magistrate of Azarath, attempted to cast the infant Raven into Limbo, only to be destroyed himself. Azar, the spiritual leader of the temple, then took the young Raven under her personal tutelage, instructing her in pacifism, meditation, and the submergence of her emotions, while perfecting her powers of teleportation, astral projection, and empathic healing. Later, after Azar’s death, when Raven was plagued by prophetic dreams of Trigon, she learned of her true parentage and, defying her teachers, she confronted her demon father in Limbo at his bidding. Trigon spared her and Arella after satisfying himself that, upon his return when she reached adulthood, he could seduce Raven into becoming his ally.
