Olive the Necromancer, Chapter 50 Picture

After Poe and Allen manage to get Olive to stop worrying about her friends in the forest (for now), Allen introduces her to his parents–Eliza and David Raven–and his “new” little sister, Annabel Lee (Belle for short).

By the time Ozzy died, David had become second in command, and was even Captain until Shane turned eighteen and took his place. Now, the three Ravens live on that ship as part of the crew.

Edgar only tried betraying them again because of his infatuation with Cynthia. As for why it was so easy for Allen and Poe to find their parents… well, the Ravens aren’t prisoners–they simply ran into them, eventually.
