Eric Draven, also known as The Crow, is the first main protagonist of the Crow graphic novels.

Eric and his fiancée are on their way back from a romantic get-away, when their vehicle breaks down on a deserted road. A car full of gang members stops not to help but to take advantage of the couple's misfortune. They shoot Eric in the head paralyzing him while they rape and kill his fiancée in the car, Eric dying hours later in the hospital. A year later, resurrected by The Crow, Eric exacts vengeance on the men responsible for their deaths.

Abilities

The Crow is a force which enters a person and its powers are more closely related to that of vengeful ghosts. They include but are not limited to:

  • Enhanced Physical Abilities - Cat-like reflexes. Superhuman agility (ability to jump from building to building or rooftop to ground), and occasional strength as needed or possibly fuelled by emotions.
  • Invulnerability - Normal weapons do not affect it to any great degree. If it is affected by damage, the wounds will usually vanish in seconds. One exception to this is self harm. If The Avatar of The Crow chooses to damage theirself, it will last (seemingly permanently). In the original series, Eric cuts a crown of thorns into his bare chest, and slashed his own wrist several times.
  • Psychometry - Sometimes The Avatar of The Crow is able to feel and see past experiences through the touch of an object.
  • Empathy - They are able to feel the pain and other sensations of other people.
  • Clairvoyance - They are able to see through the eyes of their guiding Crow.
  • Vengeful Purpose - The Avatar essentially can have any abilities needed to accomplish their goal of vengeance. However, once those goals are met, they will lose their powers.

Trivia

  • Eric Draven was the protagonist in the 1994 film The Crow and The TV show Stairway To Heaven.
