Arella gave parentage to a daughter who was named Raven. Raven inherited great power from her father ‘s demonic linage and the religious drawing card of Azaratath, Azar, decided that Raven should be raised individually from her mother to minimize the probability of emotional ties being formed between them.

When Azar passed away, she relinquished control of Raven ‘s breeding into the hands of Arella.
