"May you live in interesting times."
― Old Chinese Proverb
"Did you know that crows are a sign of bad luck? Old superstition. But it's how I got my name. You see, some people can absorb electricity and some people can burst into rose petals. And some people are just born unlucky. My Semblance isn't like most. Its not exactly something I do. It's always there, whether I like it or not. I bring misfortune. I guess you could call me a bad luck charm. Comes in real handy when I'm fighting an enemy, but it makes it a little hard on friends. And family."
