Crowe is a gifted magic user. With the help of her fellow Glaives, she can summon fiery tornadoes to combat her enemies.
What a life, huh? She was brought up an orphan, run out of her village. I still remember the first time I saw her: scrawny little thing, all covered in dirt, not a friend in the world…But those eyes. Damn. There was something about those eyes. She deserved better.Libertus Ostium, on Crowe's early life.
Crowe grew up an orphan on the outskirts of Lucis. She was forced out of her village by Niflheim and allowed to join the Kingsglaive when she showed skill with magic.
Alongside her fellow Glaives, Crowe fights the combined forces of Niflheim and Tenebrae on the outlands of Lucis. She teams up with some of her comrades to summon a fiery tornado, and when the enemy unexpectedly retreats, she returns to Insomnia. The next evening, Crowe rendezvouses with Nyx Ulric, Libertus Ostium, Luche Lazarus, and Pelna Khara for a drink.
The following day, Crowe learns a ceasefire has been declared between Lucis and Niflheim. She is sent by Titus Drautos, the captain of the Kingsglaive, on a classified mission to escort Princess Lunafreya out of Tenebrae. Crowe has a gift for her, a hairpin traced with Crowe's watch. Just outside of Insomnia, Crowe is killed by an unseen assailant in a van. A pair of homeless men find her corpse. Nyx and Libertus mourn her death, and the latter bitterly defects from the Glaive, blaming Lucis for the tragedy. Drautos passes on Crowe's effects to Nyx, the hairpin and watch among them, which later allow Nyx to locate Lunafreya.
During the fall of Insomnia, Crowe's murderer is revealed to be none other than Luche.
