Raven is one of the Teen Titans when Nightwing drops off Damian Wayne to live with them. While the other Titans see Damian as moody, Raven is the only one that senses his sadness. After a brawl between Damian and Blue Beetle, which results in Damian getting half of his face fried, Raven volunteers to heal him. In doing so, the two of them discover deep secrets about each others' pasts. When Damian tries to talk about it with her, later that night, Raven refuses and asks Damian to stay away from her. However, the two of them begin to bond during a night at the fair. Things seem to be going well until Raven is sent a message to head for the hills beyond the fairgrounds, alone. When she arrives, the vision of her father Trigon appears and asks her to return to him. Raven refuses and Trigon's demons attack. The Titans are able to help Raven fend off the demons, but in return, they want answers. Raven transports the group to a place where Trigon can't see them and she reveals her backstory: Her mother had joined a cult that worshiped the devil and she was chosen to be his bride. After Trigon was summoned, he raped her and got her pregnant. Raven's mother had fled to a secret place called Azarath where she eventually had her daughter, Raven. As Raven grew up, she was curious to meet her father and secretly performed a ritual to summon him. As a result, Trigon released his entire wrath on Azarath, killing everyone, including Raven's mother. Trigon brought Raven to his domain in the hopes of training her to be his successor for Earth, but Raven sealed Trigon away and left the domain to eventually end up with the Titans. After returning to Titan's Tower, the Titans find the Justice League waiting for them. Immediately, Trigon's demons take control of the Justice League and they attack the Titans. The Titans eventually lose and Raven agrees to go with them to free Trigon from his prison, in exchange for letting the Titans live. Raven releases Trigon just as the Titans return for round two. After freeing the Justice League from the demons, they agree to do their best to hold Trigon back as the Titans follow Raven into Trigon's domain, hoping to seal him up again. With the help of Damian, Raven is able to accomplish the task. To make sure that Trigon doesn't escape again, Raven chooses to stay behind and watch over him. But the Titans offer Raven a home with them. Raven agrees and places her father's prison on her forehead, as a jewel.
