The Soul Raven is an extremely powerful and mysterious Gourmet World beast that competently resides in the Gourmet Air Paradise, Shangri-La. Commonly known as the Grim-Reaper of the Clouds, the Soul Raven only appeasers in times of great disaster or genocide in Shangri-La. It is said that it harvests the souls of the fallen and feasts on the remaining bodies. It has lived for millions of years with a steady diet of souls and death. It is assumed that if the Raven were to ever stop eating souls for a prolonged period of time, it would quickly die.

It lives out it's days in Shangri-La, commonly undisturbed by the other beasts, but still serves and obeys the Shambala Bird, as all other flying beasts do.

As food the Soul Raven has incredibly foul tasting meat. However, it's mask is a rare and unknown delicacy. Over centuries, salt and excess calcium are stored in the mask and it's high flying home filters oxygen and natural Cloud Sodium through it. If successfully taken, the Soul Raven's mask can be cooked into the White Bird Mask Saltines, crackers of infinitely crunchy and savory texture. The saltines have the effect of stimulating appetite and multiplying a persons metabolism by 100 fold. Due to those effects and its divine taste, Foxglove the Flying Chef, as made it his Hors-D'oeuvre.
