Ravens are a species of bird primarily found in Outland, though a few raven critters can also be found in Stonetalon Mountains. The ravens of Outland seem to have a special connection with the Arakkoa, with many ravens serving the various veils. A subspecies of raven is the dread raven, which the Raven God Anzu is the father of. The former vrykul Vydhar states that not only are they filthy, (as apparently one that can understand them) these birds are foul-mouthed and rude. They apparently like to insult by speaking uncouth things about one and one's lineage.
