The Raven Mocker or Woman of the Woods is a shapeshifting bigfoot like creature of the Cherokee people of the Appalachian Mountains. As legend states, this creature acts as a witch who watches over the people in the form of a raven. After a specific victim is chosen; usually an elderly member who is in a sickened or dying state, they are eliminated, much like a lion takes out the weakest member in a herd of antelope. The Raven Mocker then takes to the sky in a fireball or other similar light-show, and then dives to prey upon its victim.
The witch will complete its gruesome task by taking out the victims heart without any incisions or marks.
- Before the Raven Mocker attacks, it will make its presence known by calling out the sound of a raven, which is commonly mistaken by a crow's call; a raven makes a more drawn-out, croaking call than a crow's "caw, caw".
- The Raven Mocker was also featured in the Destination America show, Mountain Monsters. But in the show, The Raven Mocker is depicted as a black-fur Bigfoot with a white eye with a scar and ability to change in to any animal including the Raven, Hence the name.
