Tropers / The Raven 21

"Deeply insecure, judgemental, pretentious, uptight nerd."
Anon on Tumblr trash-talking this troper. He was...a little bit right.
You know how artists begin to hate their previous works about two days from having made them at most? Weeeelll...

A young teenager and incredibly well-known artist hailing from Southeastern Mexico that has had many internet names on many ocassions, due to the bad habit of pressing the reset button whenever something negative happens. She's trying to stop doing that, but it's kind of tough when you started using the internet far too early.

Here's a list of the known internet names:

  • "Luna_Studios90"
  • "The_White_Mouth_Cat" (or pony),
  • "VMRL"
  • "Shiny_Bonnie" (still her PlayStation 3 gamertag)
  • Currently going by "Viktoria_Magrey" and/or "The Raven".

Her real name is Victoria M. Reyes (check Hispanic naming customs on wikipedia), with Magrey being a direct contraction of the two last names, and with the "C" being replaced by a "K" because it looked cooler.

She's lived her whole life in a port city, with her family consisting of her, her mother and father and an elder sister. She was homeschooled, and has dedicated her whole life to drawing and gaming - with internet access having the unintended side-effect of her learning English. She was diagnosed with Aspergers as a teenager and has social anxiety. Despite this, her main goal is to be the CEO of her own independent gaming company.


According to the now-known-as-such MBTI, Victoria is an INTP, and a textbook example in significant ways. Her enneagram is 5w4. Probably, no one cares about this except her, but we put that information there anyway.

As of now she's the sole contributor of the White Sky page, because underappreciated videogames are her style.

Tropes that apply to this troper include:

  • Adorkable: Once you get past the cold formalities, the mix of nerdy and genuinely cute of her body language sometimes is enough to warrant her this; and it’s doubled if it’s something like insects or coding. Victoria is surprisingly cheerful. Few people can actually resist it.
  • Animal Motifs: The raven.
  • Child Prodigy: ...At least as far as art is concerned.
  • Creepy Monotone: According to some people, although it's downplayed later on.
  • Advertisement:
  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Twice, through cutting her hair.
  • Homeschooled Kids: Having been pulled out of school at an early age, this is true for her and her sister (although the latter spent more time at school).
  • Hyper-Awareness: Definitely not a constant, but she often notices some really odd details many people would consider irrelevant - and she was capable of recognizing people from afar in a dark theater through silhouettes.
  • I Just Want to Have Friends: Sometimes she makes little to no effort to form bonds with other people, but it’s clear she secretly craves some of that attention; seeking out people to infodump and telegraph all her personal conundrums to. This results in some very one-sided social interactions.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Especially when she was little, she lacked a lot of conversational tact. This follows her into her teen years; although dulled considerably.
  • It's All About Me: Not completely; she does care about her family enough to support them throughout. But it’s also true that when it comes to priorities, she has a tendency to be very nearsighted and even admits to thinking this during her time studying Graphic Design. She hardly even learned people’s names because she was so busy focusing only on her studies.
  • Latino Is Brown: Averted completely. Both she and her sister are pale redheads with hazel green eyes.
  • Little Miss Snarker: Shows shades of it, sometimes in a comical way.
  • Meaningful Name: Her father and mother claim that her name actually came up thanks to a dream; with Victoria having been born with a strangely shaped birthmark on her forehead that vaguely resembled a “V”.
    • Second trope mentioned averted, as the birthmark disappeared around Victoria’s age ten and was never really brought up again.
  • The Needs of the Many: Consider her decisions while playing videogames and a lot of this will become apparent.
  • Only Friend:
    • Astrid is this for her.
  • Pride: Victoria can be very stubborn, but this more often than not shows itself as a silent avoidance for requesting help - even when she knows very well she's struggling to cope with her emotions, which she sometimes shows disdain for.
  • The Quiet One: To the point where she talks to next to no one at school for over a year.
  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: Her sister, too.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: As soon as she gets them, she becomes the living embodiment of this trope. Well, she already was, she was just missing the glasses. She’s shown to be very intelligent, despite not always being conventionally so, and she’s capable of solving puzzles quickly and debating with others.
  • Surprisingly Good English: The quintessential example; due to learning as an autodidact, and her vocabulary is often shown to be better than that of a native speaker. This applies more to writing than speaking as she has a tendency to freeze up…
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: Going back and forth between episodes. When relaxed, Victoria is a fun-loving goofball, but can also come across as extremely aloof, detached and cold to most people – even more so when she’s around other people she doesn’t know. Justified; she’s an Asperger.
  • Thinking Tic: Sticking her tongue out slightly and twirling her hair.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Eggs (Or more specifically; “Huevos Tirados”)
  • Grammar Nazi: Repeated instances of correcting people’s grammar, even when they most definitely didn’t ask for it.
  • Verbal Tic: Using the word "Disturbing" at one point, as well as several other ones that make no sense like "Purr", or "Koto".
  • Wise Beyond Their Years: She participates in groups with people much older than her without much of a problem to the point of impressing them. Then again, having two parents be psychologists and actively participating in internet discourses has a tendency to cause this in people, at least on a surface level.
  • Woman in White: Being her preferred color, some of her outfits are completely this, to absolutely no one’s surprise. Makes sense; white is the color one would expect a surgeon or a medic to dress in (and she’s basically a medical enthusiast with no qualms for the morbid), and white is associated with innocence and cleanliness (which suits her) – but also coldness and aloofness.
    • In some eastern cultures, white is the color of death. When juxtaposed against her fascination with the less than appreciated side of life and her motif animal being the raven, it’s nothing short of clever that the opposite color would still be fitting.
  • Younger Than They Look: People repeatedly had difficulties telling that she and her sister were actually not twins or assumed that Victoria was older despite being six years younger.

How well does it match the trope?
