Lifetime Mending Era

Ragavan is a monkey pirate and partner of Captain Kari Zev on Kaladesh.


Ragavan never really fit in with the other monkeys in the Peema Forest of Kaladesh, so when the airship Sun Chaser put down for supplies one day, he stowed away onboard. Ragavan was soon discovered belowdecks by thirteen-year-old Kari Zev, who recognized in the monkey a kindred spirit. Soon, Ragavan was delighted to discover that the Sun Chaser was crewed by air pirates. He took to the pirate's life with gusto, jumping aboard merchant ships and stealing the most valuable treasure while the rest of the pirates engaged their victims in battle.

With Ragavan's help, Kari Zev became the captain of her own pirate ship, the Dragon's Smile, and commanded a fleet of airships, raiding the Consulate during the Aether Revolt. Their greatest victory was when they crippled the Consulate flagship Skysovereign.

Kari Zev and Ragavan continue to terrorize the skies to this day, reaping great fortunes, which they inevitably spend on fueling and repairing their fleet of airships. It's a good life for a monkey.[1]
