Any Other Notes
So, for this explanation of Rayne's backstory, I will refer to him as "Raven", Yuna as "Hawk", Red Eyes as "Vireo", and Lanave as "Dove". Here you go.
This is the story about Raven. He has a split personality...sometimes he's the kindest, sweetest boy you've ever met. Other times, he's a vicious monster that is feared by his own sister, Dove.
Dove wasn't always afraid of him. She and Raven were the greatest of friends when they were children. Their mother was insane, cruel, and abusive. Raven was never a very healthy child. If he even made the slightest mistake on what his mother told him to do, even during the many times he was ill, he would be punished- severely.
Dove gave Raven hope, however. When Raven was sick she would stay by his bed and make sure he stayed warm and comfortable, and also make sure she got all of his chores got done without their mother knowing he was bedridden and not doing them. When Raven was struggling through the terrible work their mother forced him to do, Dove would support him and help as much as she could. Even during his terrible mood switches, Dove stuck by him, and even prevented his split personality from activating with her pure kindness.
Sometimes their mother would try to separate them. She found it amusing to mentally and physically "break" her children, and when they were together it was harder to drain them of all hope and happiness. But nothing would drive them away from each other. Raven and Dove were inseparable.
Frustrated, the mother decided that if she couldn't have them both be driven to insanity and depression, having one would be better than none. She hatched a plan to have Dove taken away. Raven overheard her talking to the man who was to kidnap Dove by surprise, though, and warned his sister immediately. They wasted no time and ran away to the forest without even packing their few belongings.
When they got to the forest they ran right into a dark-haired, red-eyed little girl. She introduced herself as Vireo and showed them to her own little camp in the woods. Raven and Dove explained that they were running away from home, so Vireo decided to take the siblings in. Dove questioned why she lived by herself at such a young age, so Vireo explained that she was a homeless, nomadic thief and that if Dove and Raven wanted to live with her for a very long time they would have to help her steal food, clothes, and other necessities. For Vireo, it was a simple chore and nothing more. Raven understood, seeing as how young and poor Vireo was, she didn't really have a choice.
Dove, however, stuck to her morals and refused to dirty her identity by performing petty theft. She also disapproved of Vireo and Raven breaking the law and didn't want to see them steal. Vireo and Raven would have been okay with that as they could also understand why thievery is bad and against the law. But Raven's personality switched before they could even talk it over.
Their argument was short. Maybe it was Vireo's fault for leaving her hunting knife out, or quite possibly Dove's for being stubborn, or perhaps Raven really was the only one to blame. He took Vireo's hunting knife right out of her hands and approached his sister.
"Don't want to see us steal, do you?" he laughed cruelly. "Well, you won't have to, then!"
He struck his sister straight in the eye. Her piercing scream must have awoken all of the animals nearby. Perhaps his other personality was aware of what was happening and couldn't handle it, but Raven passed out after that.
When he awoke, Vireo was very angry at him. She hadn't been aware of his split personality. Raven explained it quickly and nervously. He demanded where Dove had gone. Vireo informed him sadly that Dove had fled and probably was not to return.
Never had Raven felt such pain in his life. It felt as if a hole was in his heart. Through all of his childhood illnesses, through all the times his evil mother had beaten him, through all of the bitter work he was forced to do, he had never, ever felt this discouraged and empty. His sister was gone. The only person he had ever truly cared for was gone. He had hurt his sister, and it was his turn to be in pain.
Vireo tried her hardest to comfort him, but over the next few weeks Raven grew rather quiet and reserved, and quite paranoid of his mother finding him. But these terrible emotions finally disappeared one fateful day.
Another girl was in the woods, and Raven met her one day when he was going on a walk. She was beautiful. Her sleek black hair was to the ground. Her eyes were like blue crystals. She was playing with a stick, evidently pretending it was a blade. She smiled at Raven, introduced herself as Hawk, and invited him to play with her. He accepted, though of course he was rubbish with weapons. He started feeling extremely weak while they were playing, though, and decided to go back to his and Vireo's camp.
It was starting to snow and Raven was shivering violently. He felt as if he was being watched. He shook off the strange feeling, though, and kept walking. His fears were not in vain, however, as a wolf came out of the shadows and attacked him!
He was knocked to the ground by the wolf and was unconscious. The wolf probably decided that he didn't taste good, as it fled back to where it came from. The snow started falling more rapidly. Raven was soon partially buried. He would have died, but Hawk found him and carried him back to her own camp.
Like Vireo, Hawk had no home. She didn't travel as much as Vireo, and kept a tiny camp in the woods. She knew that if Raven was ill and injured that her tiny camp probably wasn't enough to heal him, but it was all she had and she knew she needed to try. She cleaned his wounds and tried to keep him warm.
When Raven woke up, he didn't open his eyes. Either his fever was causing him to hear voices, or Hawk was singing to him while he slept. Either way, he knew that if he opened his eyes the wonderful sound would stop. He imagined that he was back at home with his sister. He imagined that he just had a silly cold and that Dove was next to him while he slept, singing to him softly. He imagined that his mother had been maimed by a wolf and no longer was there to order him around like a slave.
The singing stopped abruptly, but Raven kept his eyes shut and kept thinking these wonderful thoughts, imagining that Dove was there instead of Hawk...until an involuntary shiver ran through his spine as he felt Hawk's pretty lips brush against his forehead...
