He's a half demon, noted by his catlike pupils and the patch of feathers on his cheek. His mother was a human and his father was a Corvid(crow/raven demon). he was used as a weapon by the Corvids to attack cities during the day, since the Corvids would be too conspicuous to appear in the light( due to their large size). Usually the demons would strike at night, but the citizens caught on to their strategy quickly and forced the Corvids to find another way. The leader of the clan, Krahe, heard about the hybrid vigor of half demons (hybrid vigor means that the offspring is stronger and more resilient than its parents--a common term used when describing well known hybrids such as mules or hinnies) and decided to create a Corvid hybrid. He raided a small farm at night, stealing a human woman in the process. Krahe fell in love with her, but refused to acknowldege it, constantly referring to the woman as a "vessel" or "it" rather than to adress her as a human being. Rumors circulated throughout the tribe concerning Krahe's attraction to the woman. To quell such rumors, after the woman gave birth to a son, Krahe publicly "sacrificed" her. Unbeknownst to the tribe, the woman had already died-- while giving birth to the demonic boy. Spero was raised with hatred and cruelty beacuse Krahe blamed him for the death of his human lover. Spero became cold and unloving as a result. It took another hybrid girl to finally melt his icy heart. She was the prime minister's daughter, kidnapped by the Corvids and used as ransom to gain access to the capital. Spero, her captor, fell in love with her feisty personality and unmatched beauty. i must write the story!!!!!! soon or i'll explode!!!!
