A Crow is an avian Shapeshifter.
Crows gather as a flock and transform from birds to humanoid form. They are able to travel between the living world and the afterlife.
Hugin and Munin, leaders of their flock, worked as agents of The Wanderer and were skilled in magic. They used sorcery in the form of black smoke to prehend Bo and transport her to the Death Train through transcended planes.
- "One for sorrow. Two for mirth. Three for a funeral. Four for birth. Five for heaven. Six for hell. And seven is the devil, his own self." – Crows announcing themselves.
- Since The Wanderer seems to be, by all indications, the Dark King, and the king is a Dark Fae, it can be concluded by association that the Crow is also Dark Fae.
- "One for Sorrow" is a traditional children's nursery rhyme about magpies. According to an old superstition, the number of magpies one sees determines if one will have bad luck or not. The magpie is considered a bird of ill omen in some cultures. The verse was first recorded in England around 1780:
- One for sorrow,
- Two for mirth,
- Three for a wedding,
- And four for death.
- In Norse mythology, Huginn and Muninn are a pair of ravens that fly all over the world, Midgard, and bring information to the god Odin. Huginn and Muninn's role as Odin's messengers has been linked to shamanic practices, the Norse raven banner, general raven symbolism among the Germanic peoples, and the Norse concepts of the fylgja and the hamingja. The names of the ravens are sometimes modernly anglicized as Hugin and Munin.
- There are many references to ravens in legends and literature. Most of these refer to the widespread common raven. Because of its black plumage, croaking call, and diet of carrion, the raven has long been considered a bird of ill omen and of interest to creators of myths and legends. To the Germanic peoples, Odin was often associated with ravens. In later Norse mythology, Odin is depicted as having two ravens, Huginn and Muninn, serving as his eyes and ears – Huginn being referred to as thought and Muninn as memory. Ravens play important roles in Greek and Irish mythology. In religious beliefs, ravens are mentioned in the Old Testament of the Bible; a raven is mentioned in the Qur'an; and in Hinduism crows represent omens and some Hindu figures. Ravens also appear in the mythology and shamanic tradition of some indigenous people.
- Crows and ravens are similar but not identical species.
- A group of crows is called a "murder".
