Moonacre Valley had not one but more than one curse placed apon it. The main curse is that the Valley would be destroyed if a pure heart did not return the moon pearls to nature. There is another curse that Merryweathers and De Noirs family will be intertwined forever. The final curse was placed on the Merryweathers, that a daughter of the family would harbor the soul of the Unicon. This curse really only effects one female of the family every time there is a moon , you've all heard of the story of how Maria Merryweather saved the valley. However Raven Merryweather was the one who truely saved the family. Here is Raven's story.
Raven Merryweather has jet black curly hair and eyes as blue as the sea. Now Raven wasnt born a Merryweather, Her adoptive father adopted her a month before his death. Raven was left the manor and until she was of age; Raven was to be under the care of her elder brother Benjamen. That didnt last long, you see Loveday became a big part of the family and accted like a big sister to Raven. Loveday even took her into the woods to play and taught her all she knows about the woods. When Raven turned to the age of 13, that's when the problem started. Raven and Benjamen had been having more and more arguements about the De Noirs. It just so happens that this very morning our little Raven had the last straw.
Raven had walked into the dinning hall wearing a black pair of pants that she had made from one of her skirts and a blue and black top. She also had on a pair of boys boots and her hair pulled up into a single ponttail. "Raven, where is your dress?" Raven sits down and gives a small smile at her brother. "I used the matiral to make my outfit. I dont mind wearing a dress but I do want to be able to move more easily. Why upset because I dress like as you call them Ruffians?" Benjamen stands up and turns his angered eyes toward his younger sister and slams his hands on the table. "You are a Merryweather and not a child of that damned family! You will act, look, and behave like a merryweather!"
Raven stands to her feet and looks her brother died in the eyes. "This is my house and I will do as I please! Your not my father! Im 13 years old and will not be treated like a child anymore!" Now sir Benjamen acted in the only way he could without damaging his own pride. What he did has been typical of a parent to do to a child of theire's that has talked back to them. Sir Benjamen slapped Raven across her face and looked at her turned head. When Raven looked back at him he took a step back as the look on her face was one of murder and pure haterd. "Brother, you have made my descision very clear for me. Don't think you'll see me the rest of the day." Raven walked out of the dinning hall and head up to her room to pack her daggers and her Merryweather locket that were left to her from her father.
Around the time Loveday normally showed up at the manor meaning that her brother would be busy preparing for their big day. Raven slipped out of the window and climbed down from her window to the ground and ran into the woods staying just out of sight but still hidden in the tree line. Once she knew she was out of veiw of the windows, she started running straight for De Noir patrolling routes and looked for her friend Robin. Just as Raven had gotten into a about a half hour away from De Noir castle, two De Noir men grabed ahold of her and should no other then Robin's Father come forward from behind some trees toward the three.
