In some cultures, ravens were honoured and revered as compassionate figures, representing intuition, helping to shape the world of men.
Although, Saxon poets associated the raven with the god Odin, with wisdom, healing, knowledge, sorcery, and saw them as a sign of oncoming battle. Not scary at all. Lovely little creatures.
Ravens are after all one of the most intelligent animals on the planet.
Everything is a matter of perspective, I guess.
Ut quod ali cibus est aliis fuat acre venenum. What is food to one, is to others bitter poison.
