Kraakan was the domesticated white raven of Quove Lentis. He delivered messages for Quove Lentis, and how he was treated depended on how fast he completed his task. Swift completion of a task resulted in praise and food, but if he was too slow then his treatment was worse. In The Nameless One, he delivered a message to the Xanth Filatine right before it departed Great Glade. Lemtrius Korn and Hengruel Paxis saw Kraakan fly out of a porthole when he exited the sky-tavern after delivering the message, so they realized that Quove Lentis knew they were on board and that they would have to hide out somewhere besides their cabin.
