General Description[edit | edit source]
Raven was previously the Lieutenant of the Criminal Investigation Division (CID), an LSPD Detective, as well as the Union Boss for the CID. He has been a part of the Police Department for close to 2 years.
After a reshuffle of the PD and the CID, Raven's rank was changed to Sergeant Detective.
Background Information[edit | edit source]
Vladimir Raven was born on September 5th, in Russia. He and his family later moved to Australia, though he does not remember much from his childhood. However, he does remember that he was close friends with Gazz Maloo, as the two of them grew up together. He served in the Australian army for many years, eventually leading to him being investigated for various war crimes, though he has been cleared of them since.
Raven sustained many injuries from his time in the war (leading to various body parts having metal plates implanted into him), and suffers from PTSD. During this time of his life, Raven became severely addicted to morphine and potentially crack, in order to cope with the pain.
The court case filed against him for his alleged war crimes was based in Los Santos, thus leading to him moving there to appear in court. He chose to stay following the court case; later joining the police force.
After arriving in Los Santos, Raven met up with an old friend from school, Brian Crane (head of EMS at the time), and soon began a very unhealthy relationship with him. Raven was deep in his morphine addiction, and Brian was abusive towards him. Brian Crane died of a mysterious illness, and Raven has moved on in a much more positive direction in his life. He has successfully broken himself of his morphine addiction and continues to stay sober.
Raven was formerly in an incredibly supportive marriage with the Chief of Police, Bobby Smith. The two are now separated, as of December 2019, and have filed for divorce - court case date pending.
Los Santos Police Department[edit | edit source]
Raven secured a spot in the Criminal Investigation Division following a prank that Svensen was attempting to pull on (at the time) Chief Inspector of CID Jackie Snow, and SASP Colonel Olivia Copper. Raven and Svensen hid in a van that was parked beside Snow's Police Mustang, outside of Mission Row Police Department. While waiting for Snow and Copper to come outside, a woman approached the Police Mustang and began lockpicking the vehicle, unknowing of Raven and Svensen's presence. The two men hopped out of the van and detained the woman, just as Snow and Copper exited MRPD. This event secured Raven's place in the Criminal Investigation Division.
Present Day[edit | edit source]
Currently, Raven is still employed with the LSPD, with the rank of Sergeant. He had plans with the former Assistant Chief of Police, Olivia Copper, to convert the old CID Safehouse into a sex club, called "The CID Safe House", and took applications with a small fee.
One of the best things to evolve from his time with the LSPD was finding his (former) husband, Bobby Smith. Raven and Bobby Smith became "Facebook Official ™" on May 23rd, 2019. The two of them were together until December 2019, despite the fact that multiple officers tried to sabotage the relationship.
Many fellow officers have confessed to also having feelings for Bobby, and AJ Hunter tried to spread a rumor that Raven was cheating on Bobby with Jackie Snow. It didn't end well for AJ, as he was promptly knocked out via Raven's knuckle dusters, and then kicked repeatedly once down.

Not-So-Fun Facts[edit | edit source]
- Bobby and Raven have a very harsh difference of opinion on the rulings of Denzel Williams, in regards to the murder of Deputy Michael Dias. Raven believes that Denzel's life sentence is fair punishment, while Bobby was for the death sentence. This argument, and events that unfolded after, was the basis of their separation, and pending divorce.
- Often holds Zelda over Bobby's head in arguments, in order to back up his statement and validation for his decisions. Bobby absolutely hates this, as he sees it as Raven assuming that he does not hold family and loved ones first in his own beliefs on a topic. The use of Zelda's well-being generally ends with Bobby walking away from the argument.
- Raven has shown to be prone to uncontrollable bouts of rage and violence against those who upset him. This has been demonstrated when he attempted to drown Irwin Dundee during a house raid, then again when he attacked AJ Hunter with knuckle dusters, proceeding to continue to kick him after he was downed, ignoring all of Bobby Smith's attempts to calm him and move him away. Both of these instances occurred when he felt the people he loved (Gazz Maloo and Bobby Smith) were being threatened.
- He has admitted to being a "functioning alcoholic", making it clear he is almost always under the influence to some degree, which may explain his violent nature. When something or someone has upset him, he has turned to drink heavily. On one occasion, he crashed his car while on duty, because he was heavily intoxicated.
- He has shown to be manipulative, breaking Luka Kozlov mentally, turning him into a monster.
- He has been tried for war crimes. His superior officer pleaded guilty for all the crimes, which saved Raven from being punished. Still, those rumors may have merit.
