Detailed biography, provided by BPD Chief Inspector Henri Cordon: Ava Lesile Crow, known better as Ava Corvidae, came to the attention of Barton PD in the early Autumn of 2007, during the aftermath of the Halloween Vampire Conflict. She was found by Louie Von Helson and his younger brother, Damian "Ian" Von Helson, laying against a tree near Von Helson Manor. She was, at this time, nursing serious wounds from a recent skirmish with vampire hunters, and was in need of immediate medical intervention. When offered a cure for her affliction during her treatment, she declined, citing a familiarity with her condition that she didn't have with being human. She was subsequently submitted for psychological testing; it was concluded from this testing that Ava suffers from near-complete retrograde amnesia, and that she can't clearly recall anything from her past as a living human, except for her name and the nursery rhyme One For Sorrow. The cause of this amnesia has yet to be determined.
It's been determined that she had died and been infected with vampirism some time within the early morning of June 30th 2007, the same date that her parents Michael and Beth Crow were found murdered in their home by persons unknown. Unfortunately, shortly after Ava disappeared and her parents' corpses were retrieved, a fire broke out in the ransacked home that had once belonged to the Crows. The entire building was lost to the blaze, and any documents that may have contained information on her surviving siblings or other relatives has been either stolen or completely destroyed by fire and water damage. No persons have come forth that claim relation to either Ava or her parents, so it's to be assumed she has no surviving family unless further evidence is produced.
Ava was briefly considered the prime suspect in her parents' murder due to her affliction, but her lack of memory prior to reawakening and forensic evidence collected at the scene and during the autopsy has completely exonerated her of all culpability.
Ava is intensely curious about who turned her into a vampire, and why. She has consistently insisted upon being involved in the investigation of her case, and has sought to find the answers she's looking for through the use of magic. She is a skilled necromancer capable of interrogating the dead as well as reanimating bodies, and is the current head of Barton PD Supernatural Crimes department. She's questioned thousands of spirits about her case at every possible opportunity, although no leads in the case have yet been discovered. She is convinced that she had an older sister, Sarah, who she believes may have been involved, although nothing has come up to vindicate her suspicions.
Additional notes: Ava's case is up for consideration over whether or not it should remain open. No further evidence beyond that described above, admissible or otherwise, has ever been found, and no witness testimony that would get us anywhere has ever been furnished. Knowing Ava, it's unlikely she'll ever stop trying to find the answers she's looking for, whether or not someone could be prosecuted.
Speaking professionally, I wouldn't recommend her as a detective; she's intelligent and observant, but not good at connecting the dots. She has a tendency to follow odd trains of thought at times, likely as a side effect of whatever trauma caused her amnesia. Her position within the Supernatural Crimes department is under no serious threat; she is capable when it comes to solving crimes involving supernatural elements, but more mundane cases baffle her. No, she doesn't sparkle in the sunlight - the next one to ask me that question will be moved to her department to work as her personal assistant, so they can check for themselves.
