Interesting Fact about Raven: Since she is the daughter of Trigon, she is also the demon Belial’s half sister, and therefore Etrigan’s aunt. If you can call it that. Belial even mentions their kinship while talking to Phantom Stranger.

Raven is not trusted by Batman. He thinks she is untrustworthy because she can hide her emotions.

Wow, some really great facts here! But just remember everybody: we’re not looking for storyline summaries, but little bitty tidbits. What’s Raven’s favorite song? Can she touch her nose with her elbow? Is that really her natural hair color? You know, stuff like NYJt3’s doing! I never knew how many times Raven says “Azarath Metrion Zinthos!” And now I do!
