Wolves and ravens have a long and storied history: wherever you find one, you find the other. The bond between a wolf and his/her unkindness of ravens has been known to rival that of the pack and some wolves even breed and train ravens as companions in life and battle.

Additional Equipment: You own a Bird Roost at home or at work where your raven(s) live. You gain additional or larger Bird Roost as your number of Ravens increases.

Minor Effect Suggestion: Your feathered friend(s) spend less time locating you or an intended item.

Major Effect Suggestion: Your feathered friend(s) swoops into aid in battle, distracting your target without being ordered to do so. For one round the difficulty of all tasks it performs is modified by one step to its detriment.
