Icon - Raven.png Raven


Raven is the Crow Mercenary Knights' captain turned rebel leader who eventually joins Elsword to help find the missing El. He is a close combat expert, using his powerful Nasod arm and a sword in his human hand to clobber and slash enemies. Able to inflict damage with a seemingly endless barrage of attacks, he leaves foes begging for mercy.

Special Ability

Main Article: Anger of Raven

His suppressed rage is unleashed and channeled to the Nasod Core. It feeds off of Raven's rage, and the more rage, the stronger it becomes. The Nasod Core assists Raven in attacks and defense depending on the battle situation.


Main Article: Altera Research Lab

Raven is a commoner from the Kingdom of Velder who worked hard to become the Captain of the Crow Mercenary Knights. Causing jealousy among the nobles, he was soon framed and sentenced to prison. His comrades and fiancée rescued him, and they all hid within the forest in the outskirts of Velder.

Unfortunately, Velder soldiers found them and eliminated them one by one. Raven stared at all the fallen bodies around him as he took what would have been his last few breaths. Just then, a Nasod figure appeared before him and everything turned black.

Raven awoke in a Nasod capsule, with devices attached to various parts of his body. Reborn with a Nasod arm and holding a blade on the right hand, he blindly fought to destroy the kingdom he once protected. Until one day, he met a crew of young, ambitious heroes who reminded him of his duty to defend his fellows. In atonement for his sins, he decides to join Elsword and his friends on a new life adventure of finding the missing El.

Side Story

Main Article: Short Story of Memories

Raven Cronwell is a commoner born in the Velder Kingdom. His biological father was an unknown commoner but also a strong warrior. At some point, he died, leaving Raven orphaned. Raven was later adopted by one of Velder's most powerful commanders, General Cronwell. He raised Raven to be an expert swordsman. He attended a prestigious military academy but once word of his commoner upbringing became known, many of the students began to discriminate against him, birthing his hatred for nobles. During the academy's Mock Siege Warfare, Raven saved a student named Owen, a brilliant tactician who was bullied by other students. Raven met Seris leading up to the Siege Warfare, a student who wasn't part of any team yet she asks Raven and Owen. While Owen was reluctant, Raven agreed to invite her.
