Raven (called Raverino by Harley) is a supporting character in the DC Super Hero Girls web series, having previously debuted in the graphic novel Hits and Myths. She is a student at Super Hero High School and the daughter of Trigon.
Though she doesn't quite look like it, but Raven is a Cambion, a half-demon, half-human hybrid. She has pale skin, deep blue eyes, and a ruby red gemstone on her forehead. She has short dark hair with red tips and wears red lipstick and pink blush. She wears a long sleeveless navy blue top along with a gold belt with rounded ruby red gems and light blue leggings. She wears a matching dark cloak with a ruby red brooch with gold around it. She also wears matching gloves with red frames at the ends with matching knee-high boots. Raven's overall look in DC Super Hero Girls takes inspiration from her appearance in the Rebirth comics.

Raven revealed she is forced to be home schooled by her evil demon father, Trigon. He forbids her to have any sort of interaction with superheroes and wants her to follow in his evil footsteps. Raven says being evil was boring and has a desire to be a hero instead of a villain and to do all the cool stuff at Super Hero High.
Against her father's strict rules, she secretly helps guide Wonder Woman, Katana, Beast Boy, Bumblebee, Miss Martian and Harley Quinn to a opening that leads them to their missing teacher who her father is holding captive. After she wished them luck and turned to leave them with their rescue mission, Beast Boy is seen awkwardly waving at her while having a noticeable nervous grin formed on his face.
She later attends class with Supergirl and she's noted that she is now a student at Super Hero High School. In an upcoming novel, she gets a larger part where she and her Teen Titans crew join in to help Mera and the rest of the DC Super Hero Girls squad save Atlantis from Brainiac.
Raven is voiced by Tara Strong in the English version of the cartoon.
In Ha-Ha Horticulture, Raven appears sleeping in a Super Hero High School hallway along with other students and staff due to the effects of Poison Ivy's sleeping poppy experiment. Later, she is seen as Ivy and Harley Quinn distribute pollen across the school to counteract the effects of the poppy experiment, and presumably wakes up.
Raven is formally introduced in Nevermore Part 1, being taught magic by Trigon in the underworld, creating lava and sulfur eruptions in Metropolis. Raven expresses her dislike for learning magic and struggles to perform it. After Trigon tells her to practice creating portals to Metropolis by herself, she enters the city by going through his display portal and notices the lava eruptions devastating the city. In Nevermore Part 2, she saves a little girl from the lava. Supergirl then asks for her help to rescue civilians and together they stop a building from collapsing. After being led by Supergirl to Super Hero High to bring civilians to safety, Raven meets Principal Waller, who asks her if she finally received her recruitment letter. Although she does not believe she is a hero, Waller replies by saying she believes she different from her father. In Nevermore Part 3, after Trigon emerges in Metropolis upon learning that she went to the surface world, he grounds her for an eternity which he extends to two eternities when Supergirl tries to defend her for being a hero. As she explains that she wants to go to school at Super Hero High, he adamantly denies her and attacks the school. Her initial efforts to contain the fire he creates with her magic backfire. After he captures Supergirl and Batgirl, she offers to return with him to the underworld if he leaves them alone. In Nevermore Part 4, after they escape, they use a hologram of Raven on Batgirl's batcycle to lure Trigon away from the school and into a portal to the underworld created by Raven, admitting to him that her new SHHS friends helped her learn. As she is about to leave with him, he allows her to stay at Super Hero High, seeing how she has mastered magic during her brief time with Super Hero High students than in several years of homeschool.
In Tamaranean Dance Club Part 1, she appears attending the Tamaranean dance organized for Starfire with Korugan students. She does not appear in Tamaranean Dance Club Part 2 when the dance is revealed to be a Tamaranean "domination battle" between the SHHS and Korugar students.
In By the Yearbook, she makes a background appearance levitating by Metamorpho in a school hallway before landing and looking in a completed SHHS yearbook with him.
In Spell-shocked Part 1, Raven has lunch in the cafeteria with Supergirl, Wonder Woman and Bumblebee and shows off her improved portal-making skills. When Supergirl asks her how far can a portal take her, she flies through a portal to the future in which she sees an abandoned school and is attacked by a red laser as she returns to the present. Not remembering what she saw, she, Supergirl and Batgirl ask the new math teacher, Dr. Seid for his thoughts, but to no avail, and she uses her telekinesis to save him from falling off a ladder. She, Batgirl and Wonder Woman then go into the vault under the school to see if the Book of Legends can restore Raven's memory, which comes to life, when Batgirl frees it. In Spell-shocked Part 2, the Book attacks Raven and her friends and brings Lead back to life before escaping. After Lead is defeated, Raven, Supergirl and Wonder Woman return to the school, where they meet up with their friends to stop the book as it goes on a rampage. After saving Dr. Seid from a ladder brought to life by the Book, they find the book in the cafeteria and Raven defeats it by reading the incantation inside while Batgirl and Wonder Woman hold the book open. Vice Principal Grodd thanks Raven for ending the Book's rampage, but she admits to still being incapable of remembering her vision.
In Stage Fright, she sets a good luck spell on her friends as they prepare for a school production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream", but it backfires and gets them stuck to the floor backstage as good luck spells in the Underworld are bad luck spells in the overworld. The stage manager, Miss Martian then plays all the parts with her shapeshifting ability. The spell wears off when the play ends and she stays backstage when her friends congratulate Miss Martian. In Haunted Harley, she makes a background appearance in Dr. Seid's class on the day of an algebra quiz. In Mindscape, Raven attends to Bumblebee when she is found unresponsive in her bed, identifying that she is stuck in a sleep cycle in her mind due to a spell. She uses her powers to allow Miss Martian to enter her dream to wake her. After she wakes, Miss Martian tells her of red eyes she saw in Bumblebee's dream, reminding Raven of similar eyes she saw in her vision of the future at the beginning of the season.
In the first part of Fortress of Solidarity, she attends the SHHS winter holiday tree ceremony and tells her father to start using the front door when he arrives by melting through the skating rink around the tree, apologizing to the other students and parents. In Super Gift Swap, she participates in her first SHHS annual gift exchange and is taught the rules by Hawkgirl, mentioning they normally take gifts in the Underworld. During the steal, Ivy steals her present and she steals Harley Quinn's. During the swap, she casts a spell to randomize who gets what present. After the exchange ends, she asks if it is like this ever year, to which Miss Martian replies "pretty much".
In the first part of My So-Called Anti-Life, she quizzes Batgirl on the volume of a cone before they attend Dr. Seid's math club to do a multiple choice test in preparation for the upcoming Trimathlon. She then witnesses as Dr. Seid transforms into Darkseid by using Harley's test answers to solve the Anti-Life equation. In the second part, she and the other students battle Darkseid, but he escapes and uses the equation to corrupt the amethyst on top of the school to recreate the world in his own image, turning students and staff into clones of himself and remembers that her vision of the future was a world full of Darkseid. She escapes with the remaining students into the pocket universe in Batgirl's Anti-Hall Monitor app. In the third part, Batgirl hypothesizes that they can undo the results of the equation by changing the variables, so the remaining students return to the school to restore the individuality of the transformed students. Raven identifies which clone was previously Wonder Woman and they give her back her tiara, turning her back. Raven later gives the Katana clone her sword, turning her back. As the effects of the equation are undone, she confronts him with the other students. After he is beaten and retreats through a portal, she stands by Batgirl as she says they will be ready and waiting if he returns.
