[[folder:Main Characters]]



!!Crow
->'''Voiced by:''' Roger Raines

April's plucky avian sidekick whom she saved from a greedy con-man. He tends to be rather scatterbrained, but he considers April a true friend and proves to be instrumental in her quest.

* AndTheAdventureContinues: He's always up for being an adventure. When [[spoiler: Zoe disappears at the end of Book 4 in ''Chapters'', he decides he'll be Kian's sidekick.]]
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: As a bird, he gets distracted rather easily.
* CleverCrows: Technically not a crow (since he comes from another world) but looks like one and is named Crow [[spoiler:after a comic book hero of her childhood named Crowboy]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Pretty much every other thing he says is a sarcastic quip.
* DubNameChange: His name was rendered "Kruk" in the Polish version of the game and, while it does seem to look kind of similar to the English name, is in fact the name of another popular bird, the raven. The proper Polish translation of the term "Crow" would in fact be "Wrona", which is feminine (and thus not really that fitting a male character) and just happens to be possibly one of the last names in the language you would ever associate with a positive character. However, in the [[WordOfGod Norwegian version of the game]] his name is "Ravn", which does mean raven. His in-game model also more closely resembles a raven than a crow. The reason for the change to "Crow" in the English translation could be that "Raven" sounds a little too sophisticated for him, whereas "Crow" falls in nicely with "crude" and "crass", and works better as a nickname.
* HeroicBSoD: Has a minor one when he learns of [[spoiler: April's death]].
* OhNoNotAgain: At the end of [[spoiler:Book 4 of ''Chapters'']], he notices that he has once again [[spoiler:been left to his own devices in a strange and unfamiliar location by an "inscrutable woman with otherworldly powers."]]
* MetaGuy: He often [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall Leans On The Fourth Wall]], coming with jabs both towards the game's plots as well as typical adventure game tropes.
* NeckSnap: [[spoiler: Brian cruelly offs him with this. He gets better though.]]
* NonHumanSidekick: He is, of course, a bird. And he's tagged along with April, Zoe, and Kian. [[spoiler: A junior version of Crow tags along with Saga, Kian, and perhaps Na'ane in Sadir.]]
* NonIndicativeName: He's not actually a Crow (and gets more than a little upset when April tells him what "Crows" are known for in her world). He was named by April after her favourite childhood cartoon - "Crowboy".
* PluckyComicRelief: In all games. He doesn't appear until near the end of the game in ''Dreamfall'', though, so his levity is rather overdue after a game full of being harassed, arrested, and attacked. He's also somewhat less "plucky" than most examples, because it's quite easy to hurt his feelings; probably because his only friend in the world (viz. April) tends to treat him like a tool, and a somewhat dim one at that. Zoë goes a long way towards endearing herself to him by treating him with considerably more respect-an optional conversation with him in Dreamfall is just a conversation for the sake of conversation.
* ViolenceReallyIsTheAnswer: After working for so long with April and Zoe who use puzzles, levers, and other methods to solve puzzles, he's quite satisfied to watch Kian just break down a door by kicking it.
* WhatTheHellHero: Chews out April for abandoning Zoe, and in fact leaves her to go help Zoe out.
