       Next to the wereowl as one the three Asphikos (avian therianthropes), those that have this therianthropy are considered  amongst the wisest, cunning and most genius of all therianthropes.  To a  number of species those that have this therianthropy are considered  demi-gods, symbolizing change and spiritual force.  Most wereravens tend  to be of good or devoted good philosophy.

      Most of those that  have this therianthropy tend to develop personality traits that include  being wary and secretive, not in the same way as wererats or others that  try to hide their therianthropy, but more akin to introversion and  keeping to themselves more than outright avoiding society.

      Wereravens take on some physical changes with this therianthropy. Nearly all have their hair change to become sheer black, and those that  do not have hair have black lighting streaks emerge along their chests  and shoulders. Their eye gain a golden circle around their pupils, or in  the case of species without standard pupils a golden ring in the center  of their eyes.

     When in their hybrid form they sprout black  feathered wings from their back, their legs alter into bird-like form  and end with powerful talons.  Their heads alter to allow a beak to form  from their mouths.  Their arms, mid-body remain humanoid but their hand  end in clawed fingers.

       In their animal form they appear as a giant raven.
