Warning: All spoilers are unmarked! Proceed with caution.
Raven Of Old
- Played by: James Mackenzie
- Characterisation Marches On: In the earlier "pre-beard" episodes, he was much more jovial. After growing out the iconic beard, he became the Stern Teacher archetype.
- A Dog Named "Dog": It's implied in the Series 7 opening sequence that he was a normal raven before being given his abilities, including shapeshifting, as an unintentional side effect of the forging of the emblems. There are hints in the spinoffs that imply he was a human who can turn into a bird instead though.
- Deadpan Snarker: He can slip into this territory when a contestant does extremely poorly at a challenge.
- Disappointed in You: Raven will express this sentiment at times when everyone fails a challenge.
- Mentor: Acts like this to the warriors and to the current Raven.
- Mr. Exposition: When explaining how to do the challenges.
- Stern Teacher: If a warrior begins pushing their luck with a challenge (such as spending too much time collecting rings in a challenge with a time limit), Raven will call in after them, rather sternly warning them that they have less than half the time remaining and they should be on their way back by then.
- Played by: Aisha Toussaint
- Mr. Exposition: Same as her predecessor.
- Noodle Incident: It has not been revealed how she became a champion nor is it known what her name was prior to becoming the current Raven. We do know that she faced Pool Plunge among other challenges when she was a warrior twelve years before the start of Series 11.
- Played by : Anonymous
- Evil Counterpart: To Raven, of course. His common goal is simply to hinder the Warriors' efforts, whereas Raven assists them.
- Karmic Transformation: Happened over time after he stole wood from the Enchanted Oak to make his own Staff of Power. Every time he uses it for evil, half his life force is taken away.
- Malevolent Masked Man: Always wears a bronze mask and a black cloak.
- Noodle Incident: Nevar wears a mask to hide the scars given to him in a battle against Raven of Old but the viewers never find out the exact details of what happened to cause said scarring.
- Sdrawkcab Name: Every kid who figured out that his name is actually "Raven" reversed felt real smart.
