Raven Mocker

The Raven Mocker or Woman of the Woods is a shapeshifting bigfoot like creature of the Cherokee people of the Appalachian Mountains.

Abilities and hunting behaviors[]

As legend states, this creature acts as a witch who watches over the people in the form of a raven. After a specific victim is chosen; usually an elderly member who is in a sickened or dying state, they are then eliminated. The Raven Mocker takes to the sky in a fireball or other similar light-show and dives upon its prey.

The witch will complete the hunt by performing a ritual involving removing the victims heart seemingly without any incisions or marks.

Other legends[]

  • Before the Raven Mocker attacks, it will make its presence known by calling out the sound of a raven, which is commonly mistaken by a crow's call; a raven makes a more drawn-out, croaking call than a crow's "caw, caw."
  • The Raven Mocker was also featured in the Destination America show, Mountain Monsters. But in the show, The Raven Mocker is depicted as a black-fur Bigfoot with a white eye with a scar and ability to spiritually enter a raven to be able to see whatever the raven sees.
