A Raven Mocker is an evil, immortal creature. They are the children of Kalona and the women of the ancient Cherokee tribes. They are products of rape and hatred. Kalona used the women to his heart's content and enslaved the men. When Kalona was tricked by A-ya and sealed into his earthly prison, the Raven Mockers sang a song, promising revenge. Eventually, the Raven Mockers were just spirits that could only harm the elderly and close to death. When Kalona returned, so did his sons, grown and healthy and able to kill again.
Raven Mockers first appeared in Untamed and attacked Zoey. A Raven Mocker appeared at Zoey's window and her grandmother sent it away with a blue powder. The Raven Mocker overheard the two of them and attacked Sylvia in the car on the way to a lunch at the Chalkboard. The Raven Mockers attacked the House of Night at the end of the novel.
