Raven Chronicles is about an investigative team that explores the paranormal. Led by the mysterious Edgar Allan Raven, the team searches for answers to questions that most won’t even ask. From UFO’s, to vampires, to mysterious computer viruses, to spontaneous human combustion, no subject is taboo, no mystery is unsolvable. Although has been compared as a cross between Mission Impossible and X-Files, it does not have the obsession with governmental conspiracy that occurs in X-Files.
A unique team of operatives, under the auspices of the mysterious organization of Raven, Inc., brought together to investigate any and all cases of paranormal activity. Formed of both skeptics and believers alike, the team is often called by standard authorities when cases prove to be too bizarre, too unusual, or just plain unsolvable. Covering the entire spectrum of the unknown, from the supernatural to the dark side of man, Raven, Inc., searches for answers in areas that most people refuse to acknowledge exist.
The operatives include a basic team of six plus an additional force of different consultants who all specialize in different areas.
