Long ago, a snow-white Crow was left by the God Apollo to watch over Coronis, his lover. Even though Coronis was pregnant with his child, she admitted her love for another man. As soon as the Crow found out, it flew off to tell Apollo of her infidelity. But Apollo quickly discovered the truth before the Crow was able to tell him.

Because of Coronis' act, the Crow was turned black as night. Ever since then, Crows have been known as the spirits of revenge.
