Early life (1980-1991)
Raven grew up living on Mecha Station. Raven's mother would often exchange Raven's rations for moonshine, leaving Raven dependent on Finn Collins, the boy next door, who shared his rations with her and remembered her birthday. Throughout the years, the two grew closer and at some point, they started a romantic relationship.
Around Raven's 18th birthday, Finn presented her with a handmade metal raven trinket on a chain for good luck on her Zero-G exam. She passed the test with the first perfect score since they had been giving it, however, she failed the physical due to a heart murmur. Later, Finn tells her he has another birthday present for her. He borrowed a spacesuit from the Maintenance Bay and has found a way to get her the spacewalk she had always dreamed of.
Spacewalker 047 (Raven) Raven's spacewalk After Raven's illegal spacewalk while she was getting undressed, an alarm sounded an "outer door breach." Raven tried to figure out where the door breach was but ended up instructing Finn to use the manual override to get her back into the Ark. In doing so, the breach lost three months of oxygen. Finn then instructed Raven to take off the spacesuit for him to wear because Raven was over eighteen and would have been floated whereas Finn was still underage. While Finn was in Lockup, Raven would go see him every Visitation Day.
