Meet Raven Black.
A Voodoo Priest “The Doctor” in his travels came across a little girl who looked lost and scared. He cursed her with a magic spell and turned her into a doll. The curse was disrupted and morphed from her terrifying and taunting screams, she remained half human, half doll. As Raven lived in the dark world of the Doctor, she secretly learned his magic and conjured up a demon, Muppet, who she made her eternal protector and trapped him inside her heart. The Doctor and Muppet created Stitches to search for souls who are looking to join our dark world.
