|Lifetime||-25,000 AR to the start of the Elder Dragon War|
Ravus was an aggressive Elder Dragon, with the characteristic fierce crest that was shared by his siblings Vaevictis Asmadi, Rubra and Lividus. They were cousins of Palladia-Mors, Merrevia Sal Chromium Rhuell, Nicol Bolas, Ugin and Arcades Sabboth.
Ravus was birthed in the second egg-fall by the Ur-Dragon on Dominaria. With his marauding sibling gang, he furiously guarded a territory they claimed for their own hunting grounds. Because the humans in their territory evolved into dragon hunters, after several years only he and his three siblings remained of his egg-fall. At least four descendants had been killed, their skulls decorating the houses of the humans.
Elder Dragon War
At the onset of the Elder Dragon War, Ravus and his brothers were challenged by the human army of Nicol Bolas. Although Rubra took a poisoned bolt to the eye, the others defeated the army easily. What remained of Bolas' army fled to the mountains and hid in a canyon. When Ravus and Lividus traced them there, they found that Bolas had one more trick up his sleeve. Working in concert, a squadron of sorcerers flung a disintegration spell at Ravus. It hit like an invisible wave pouring through him and he splintered like rock heated until it explodes.
