New details on new Tekken 7: Fated Retribution character Master Raven

Two new additions to the Tekken 7: Fated Retribution roster were made today during Sunday Finals day at EVO 2016. Bob Richards, who was introduced in Tekken 6, has made a welcomed return to the roster, but also a new character named, Master Raven, has made an appearance. Just who is this trained assassin? We have a few details already courtesy of Harada-san himself, and a few character details. First, we know that she is a master simply because of her name. People have been asking if she was Raven’s daughter, wife, niece or relative, but those are highly unlikely. Instead, she is Raven’s master (or boss). Harada has said so.

And we now know that “Raven” isn’t Raven’s or Master Raven’s name, but refers to either a codename. Senior game designer, Michael Murray, gives the intel.

Secondly, we know that her form of martial arts is the same as Raven’s, which is ninjutsu. Read the description to the YouTube video on the Bandai Namco channel:

The original Raven made his debut in TEKKEN 5 with origins that are still murky today. Now Master Raven enters the fight in TEKKEN 7, executing her ninjutsu fighting skills with exceptional power and precision. Master Raven has no problem tearing her opponents apart in The King of Iron Fist Tournament.

Bandai Namco Europe wrote the following in tehir YouTube description:

Bob joins the roster of fighters in Tekken 7 but who could the other one be? Codename: Master Raven? Stay tuned for future updates!

Being Raven’s master, we can safely assume that she would be a bit more skilled than he is. So, she may either possess some additional new moves, or have a slightly different execution of some of the same moves. We can see a few things from her reveal trailer.

Another thing we certainly cannot miss is that Master Raven and Raven are both the same complexion, and just as Raven, we don’t know details about where Master Raven is from. At least not yet. We should expect some unfolding of the storyline in Tekken 7 concerning her appearance. Is she looking for Raven? Did she send him on a mission? Why has she shown up? Did he not return as expected? Is Raven even alive? She has obviously been in combat before, or either had a rough life, due to the scars on her face. She looks like should could be aged, but still maintaining a youthfulness. One of her locks is grey, and there is some peppered grey in her other locks. She also seems to like to wear make-up to her battles. We can also tell from the reveal trailer that she’s handy with a blade. By the way, her eyes are stunning. So just who is Master Raven? We’ll find out soon enough. She’s one bad mama jama! What do you think of this new character?
