In The Raven the clan people each have a secret totem in which their inner self is linked to a creature of nature. This creature symbolises the characteristics of the individual, but he or she also shares a connection with the animal in the Otherworld. It is important that one's totem is kept secret so that an enemy cannot cast a sinister spell. It is the role of the clan's soragan to know the totem of all clan members, so that if an individual falls ill, the soragan can aid in the Otherworld.
