The Raven Queen is the goddess of death and winter. Once a mortal sorcerer-queen, she caught the attention of the god of the dead, who took her as a consort after her death. However, she betrayed him, seizing control over the shades of his realm and used their power to destroy him. She sought to take his place as the new goddess of the dead, but the other gods, fearful of her potential, intervened and recast her as the goddess of death instead.
The Raven Queen and her thralls are responsible for the processing and judgement of the souls of the dead, as well as shepherding them along to their final reward or punishment. While no longer holding thrall over the souls of all unaffiliated dead, her realm is populated by the souls of those with nowhere else to go.
