5'9"; slender, wiry build; fair to medium skin, depending on how much time he has spent in seclusion; forest green eyes, quite mesmerizing, especially due to his tendency to make steady eye contact when in a conversation; dark brown hair, straight, shoulder-length but sometimes longer, generally a bit shaggy until he decides it is time to do something about it; generally wears casualwear (jeans, jackets, whatever shirt catches his fancy) and rarely wears formal attire (a tie? never!); depending on clothing, can look younger than he is.
bisexual but definitely not promiscuous; extremely selective about intimacy; casual caresses--extremely rare.
best-selling author/lecturer whose science fiction/fantasy series (three trilogies at this point in time) have been exceedingly successful; also creates "coffeetable books" featuring his photographs and commentary. Presently, Raven is in Paris to research Opera Populaire
--its history, restoration, the people on stage and behind the scenes, and especially the "legend" of the Phantom; he will be interviewing and photographing many of those around the Opera House.
Raven guards his personal life zealously, releasing as little information as possible. If I am fortunate, he will allow me to relate details. Most authorities agree that he was born. (No. I didn't leave any words out! LOL!) There is speculation as to the New England area, given his obsession with E.A. Poe. However, his home is The Rookery, an estate on the California coast, in the vicinity of San Francisco. Seen in the company of Anthea Nightshade, restaurateur and owner of Belladonna
art gallery, there has been much speculation about a relationship though both insist they are "just friends". Raven's only constant companion is his valet/assistant, whose history is as mysterious as his employer's. Raven is excellently educated, having studied abroad and having earned a number of degrees. He collects Poe memorabilia and rare volumes.
rather brooding, generally overly serious and very reclusive except when he is researching a new book; rarely smiles but, when he does, seems to charm the recipient; blunt but can manage tact occasionally; stickler for details; drinks but is never drunk-- the type who, when attending a party, seeks out a corner to watch other guests; rarely indulges in flirtation, merely polite "small talk".
Following is a "wally" of Raven Corbett pictures:
His AI is Michael Praed as he looked in the Eighties ("Robin of Sherwood", "To Die for 2", etc.).
