Raven (Or formally known as D'konta Ga'Tine, designated Viper 9526010) is a special ally, and later on an anti-hero in RotDN: Energy Strike, and the second protagonist in RotDN: The Valorian Conflict. She was introduced in the Power of Mercy update.
Appearance & Nationality
Raven appears to be a grey scale colored Viper, with a white chin. She is referred by Meán Fómhair as a "Mamba", one of the most aggressive Viper subspecies. She wears modified standard issue armor, using platinum alloys to construct her helmet. A fiery orange aura accompanies her presence. A serial number appears on the back of her armor, displaying the numbers "9526010". This appears to be her Spec Ops identification. She also has napalm in place of venom.
No one can explain why the orange aura appears on her, but others claim that it signifies her large hatred. Like most Vipers, Raven speaks and understands different languages. Her main language is Kuwaiti.
One of the most aggressive and merciless fighters in the Meta Squadron, D'konta "Raven" Ga'Tine leads extremely aggressive attacks on her enemies. She is quite easy to anger, and is not to be challenged with. Her Psi abilities are based on Pyromancy. If agitated, she will burst into a living inferno, turning her armor blazing hot. Her abilities are a force to be reckoned with. Oddly, her only weakness is water. She will not trust her enemies and attack if angered. Caution is advised.
When Raven was assigned to the Magnavox project, she received a massive amount of gene modifications. Eventually, she became a Monsoon-class Pyromancer. In recent interviews with ONI personnel, Raven's anger and obsession for revenge appears to be from the fact that a Viper civil war known as the "Valorian Conflict" caused Raven's parents to die from collapsing rubble.
As her parents died, Raven's rage grew at an excessive level, transforming her into what she is now - an enraged Mamba whose only goal is to destroy anything who dares to stand in her way. She won't rest until her enemies paid the price, no matter the cost.
Manipulate hostiles and turn them against the target's allies. A great defense maneuver. Does not work on mechanical enemies.
Throw a fire projectile which will home in on enemies. The fire will deal continuous damage until the fire is put out. Does not work on fire-resistant enemies.
Shout and stun enemies for a short time. Damage is increased when attacking stunned enemies. Does not work on mechanical enemies.
Immobilizes the target soldier; dealing 2-3 damage initially as well as 2-3 damage every turn till the bind is broken.
Targets a single unit and pulls them adjacent to the Viper. Can be used on units even if they are in any form of cover.
Afflicts a target with AOE fire damage at a distance.
A harmless variation of Napalm Spit which spawns a cloud of smoke that blinds enemies. This can be used for hiding or retreating.
Firestorm will cause Raven to ignite and scream, increasing her aggression. She is extremely violent in this state, and will instantly kill enemies with a melee attack. Weapons and abilities are disabled during this. The ability lasts for twenty seconds before becoming calm again. Enemies will catch fire if they get too close.
Raven is more likely a slithering tank, thanks to her enhanced strength modifications. She is able to withstand even the most powerful of weapons. Unlike other Vipers, her melee attack is extremely powerful, being able to send an enemy's ragdoll flying, or knock down infected causing them to slide on the ground. She is also useful in offense and defense.
