Made for Draw with Jazza's December challenge of the month in 2016
Ver is not a traditional hero, she does not fight battles, slay monsters or steal from the rich. Instead she uses her ability to see through her pet ravens eyes to attack before anyone sees her.
Since this is for a game the way you would be able to "see" through the ravens eyes would be a second screen that only appears when the raven is in flight. I feel like it would need to automatic so you can easily control Ver without worrying about Nev.
The idea from Ver came about when I was watching Star Wars:the force awakens (again). I love how much of an inspiration Rey is and wanted to create a character who was a hero but still poor, alone. I feel it creates more character.
Nev actually came about while I was deciding the weapon Ver uses. Once I decided on the bow I wanted to create a better connection between her and her weapon. Raven seems logical because they would easily be abundant in the medieval ages where the game takes place, and would be a great way for her to know where everyone is.
