As for who I am?
Well, what do you think makes a Raven?
The Raven is often associated with loss and ill omen yet its symbolism is complex. As a talking bird, The raven also represents prophecy and insight. Ravens in stories often act as psychopomps, connecting the material world with the world of spirits.(Wikipedia)
But what really makes a Raven? I think it's best to read this passage from Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven"
P.S: Replace the he with she, wink
Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,
In there stepped a stately Raven of the saintly days of yore;
Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he;
But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door—
Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door—
Perched, and sat, and nothing more.
Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
“Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,” I said, “art sure no craven,
Ghastly grim and ancient Raven wandering from the Nightly shore—
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night’s Plutonian shore!”
Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”
That for me is what makes a Raven, a raven.
