Corvus is the main part of a somewhat remarkable trinity. He's the
brain in the triumvirate and is in obvious command. Corvus is not the easiest
one to deal with. He's notoriously arrogant and unfriendly and can be
aggressive and cynical as well. He's never been fond of humans, firmly
believing that they're nothing but a misguided evolutionary mishap, and he
harbors dark notions of where it all might end.
Then again, he's fond of operas and symphonies, loves painters such as
Turner and Rembrandt, and even enjoys some of Edgar Allan Poe ('The Raven'). He
has a lot of philosophical books, but doesn't subscribe to any real philosophy
of his own - he prefers his own dark views and uses others as targets for his
own rude brand of sarcasm. His favorite book always was and still is Erasmus'
'Praise of Folly'...
Although Corvus doesn't like the 20th century and would vastly prefer a return
to the ages when the Druids prevailed, he also has an unnatural interest in
physics. RDC and
secretly believe he's just waiting for a horrible, unpredictable accident that
might blow up the CERN - which then would give him a good reason to chuckle
Corvus is a master of the fine art of frightening people and his attitude
towards children and women mimics that of W. C. Fields: thinking that both
would be best stored somewhere near the North Pole.. He hates human noises and
is most happy when it's raining cats and dogs - as when the sky gets it's
blackest and no one sane would dare venture outside. He's truly offended when
people come calling, disturbing his holy silence. And he sullenly turns off the
doorbell when it's time to work.
Corvus is the workaholic within the trio. He's the one always striving to do
things to perfection - no matter how long it may take - and the one who puts
the true structure and meaning into RDC's mad outbursts and Spooky's romantic
flights of fancy...
