We've been traveling around the country visiting schools and at each one the students have created their own Familiar Story.

Morgan Le Fay's Raven

In the spirit of March Madness, here on the blog this month we will be holding the first official Familiar Madness Tournament. 16 of the all-time great familiars from literature, film, and television will face off in a single elimination tourney to decide who is the greatest of them all.

10. Morgan Le Fay’s Raven

Traditionally said to represent death itself, the black raven assisted the evil sorceress Morgan Le Fay in her conflicts with the Roundtable. Arthurian legend deems this dark witch and her villainous familiar enemies of the land.

Morgan Le Fay’s raven paved the way for other evil avian familiars that would follow, like Maleficent’s raven, Diablo, and Jafar’s talking parrot, Iago.

Could Merlin’s familiar, Archimedes, take down Morgan Le Fay’s raven in a talon-to-talon fight?

Tomorrow: We let a familiar out of the bottle, so to speak.
