* RealityEnsues: Salem's stated goal is destroying humanity, something Raven is acutely aware of. Raven pointedly notes to Vernal that the tribe is dead the second Salem's group gets what they want, a viewpoint not helped by Raven having acted against her in the past ''and'' Cinder casually mentioning they would have destroyed the camp if the Spring Maiden wasn't there. Helping an OmnicidalManiac, especially one you've gotten on the bad side of previously, won't get you off of their list. Ever.

Raven and Vernal are aware that helping Salem is suicidal, since Salem always gets rid of people who can no longer serve her purposes. Which is why Raven is intent to grab the Relic and use that to keep both Salem and Ozpin away from her.


* CainAndAbel: Raven cements herself as the Cain to Qrow's Abel when she requests that Cinder and co. kill Qrow in exchange for her cooperation. Cinder's fine with this as hunting down Qrow gives her an excuse to go after Ruby, who is with him. However, Watts doesn't like the plan as it interferes with their ability to steal the Relic of Knowledge quietly, and because he can guess that Cinder won't be able to focus on the job if Ruby's around. In a possible subversion, Raven implies later that she was only selling herself as this to make sure she could be in a position to grab the Relic while playing both sides against each other (because when you think about it, her semblance would make killing Qrow very easy if she ''actually'' wanted it) as a distraction. She also neglected to mention that it would be more than just Qrow and RNJR that Cinder and the others would be facing, or that Qrow's semblance would make it particularly difficult.

When Cinder's fine with this as hunting down team demands that Raven give them access to Vernal so that Salem can obtain the Relic of Knowledge, Raven agrees to help only if Cinder's team first kills Qrow, on the grounds that Qrow gives her an excuse to go after Ruby, who knows Raven has the Spring Maiden and will therefore know the Relic of Knowledge is with him. However, vulnerable. Watts doesn't like the plan as because it interferes with blows their ability chance of obtaining the Relic by stealth and because he can see that Cinder is only agreeing so that she can go after Ruby.

Raven agrees to peacefully loan them Vernal solely if they kill Qrow for her first. Cinder agrees because it'll give her a chance to go after Ruby. Once Cinder's team has gone, Raven tells Vernal the real plan will be to create as much chaos as possible between Salem's group and Qrow's group so that she will help her, then flies and Vernal can quietly steal the Relic and disappear into the wilds with the tribe; her hope is that the Relic can be used to Haven to warn Leo.

* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Raven negotiates to loan Cinder's team Vernal so that Salem can obtain the Relic of Knowledge so that she, Vernal and her tribe can be left to go their own undisturbed afterwards. When Vernal later asks if Raven thinks Salem will keep that promise, Raven tells her that won't happen. Raven knows that Salem only ever keeps people alive for as long as they're useful to her. Once that usefulness has ended, she kills them. As a result, Raven's real plan is to give the appearance of helping Cinder's team just long enough to set them up against Qrow, allowing her to steal the Relic in the ensuing chaos. She hopes the power of the Relic will be able to protect her tribe against Salem.
