Detailed biography, provided by BPD Chief Inspector Henri Cordon: Ava Lesile Crow, better known by her stage name 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 (see the full dossier on the Crow Triple Homicide case, Case #866602). 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 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 sorcery. She is a skilled necromancer with a particular affinity for summoning rather than reanimation, and is the current head of our Supernatural Crimes Division. 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: The Crow Triple Homicide 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 with the case 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.
Ava was briefly considered the prime suspect in her parents' murder due to her affliction, but forensic evidence collected during the retrieval of her parents' bodies and during the autopsy has completely exonerated her of all culpability.
Speaking professionally, I wouldn't recommend her as a detective, although she's one heck of a magician, and an even better necromancer; she's intelligent and observant, and certainly passionate about the job, but not as good at connecting the dots as we expected she might be. 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 Division is not under question at all, however. She is capable when it comes to solving crimes involving supernatural elements and simple stage magic, even if more mundane cases can trip her up. 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.
