"I will destroy the world as it is now known and replace it with another."
—Pandora talking to her son

Pandora Chaos Raven[5], also going by Box,[6][7] is a shapeshifting Immortal of unknown origin and power, though she has commonly taken the form of a small girl, dark cloud or adult woman. She is first seen in the Hidden Genesis arc in her "girl" form, and later in a monstrous "cloud" form, though much later she is seen taking an "adult" form. She seems to have links to Magus and some sort of unknown goal which involves helping Magus escape from the spiritual plane. She is evidently the mother of Adrian Raven.[8]


HistoryEdit

Chaos (child2)

Chaos in her child form.

Pandora appears in the beginning of the Hidden Genesis arc, speaking to Mr. Verres, Agent Wolf and Agent Cranium about the nature of a dimensional occurrence that had been caused by the arrival of Magus. She described Magus as an egg that had fallen from his nest, which she had caught and hidden in a new nest. She went on to say that Magus would grow to become a hawk while the agents were mice, but encouraged the agents to become hawks themselves for the sake of her entertainment. She then disappears, leaving the agents confused.[9]

Later she appears to Magus to mock him for his failure to successfully escape the spiritual plane and give him advice, leading to him following Ellen. She chastises Magus for referring to her as "Chaos": and tells him to be more creative, refusing to give her real name, which she later reveals to be Pandora. She reveals her shape-shifting ability after Magus had left, changing from a dark cloud of random shapes and beings to the small girl form seen earlier.[10]

Pandora is next seen in Sister II when Abraham arrives to kill Ellen, appearing to prevent Magus from leaving and ordering him to follow Ellen and protect her.[11] After Raven is defeated in combat by Abraham, Pandora is shown watching over Raven and she restores his illusion, telling him she would take care of the situation and referring to herself as his mother. Later she assumes the form of Fox, Nanase's summon, to move Nanase from the school and wake her up to protect Ellen. [12]

After Abraham is defeated by Nanase and rendered unconscious by Mr. Verres, Pandora urges Magus to amplify Verres' anger so that he will lose his self control and kill Abraham. Pandora threatens to abandon Magus if he will not cooperate, but Magus refuses regardless. Pandora, enraged, attacks him, tells him her full name, and then leaves him isolated in an unknown plane.[13]

Later, Pandora meets with her son in the form of Agent Wolf, once Raven sees through the deception, Pandora berates her son for fighting with Abraham, while Raven yells at his mother for allowing Abraham to attack the school. After Raven insists he wants to make a difference, Pandora says she will destroy the world as we know it and replace it with one in which Raven can do as he pleases without restraint.[14] She later reveals her child form to a news camera crew while they are interviewing a student in front of Moperville South. She calls attention to herself by appearing out of nowhere, floating, and laughing, before disappearing in a blast of light and disruptive radiation.[15]

Pandora is giving people magic marks without them being aware: she explains what she's doing while hidden on astral plane so they can't really hear her,[16] which is probably loophole of some immortal rule. It was assumed Dex was one of them, although after the reveal that it was Voltaire who did the "bring the apocalypse" thing with Dex[17] this may or may not really be true. The fact that she is giving magic marks without knowledge or consent is terrifying to Noah.[18]

It is possible that she is behind Magus' situation, and that it has to do with Adrian somehow, given how she tried to force Magus to influence Abraham's death and her statement to Adrian that she would destroy the world for him.

Age Edit

Due to immortals getting more powerful with age and going crazy after two centuries,[19] their age (or how long it is after their last reset) is very important.

First indirect information about Pandora's age was the note that Adrian Raven wanted to fight for centuries, accomplished by note in comment that he has apparently known his mother, Pandora (AKA Chaos), for hundreds of years.[20]

Later, Pandora herself said she's hundreds of years old,[21] and when pressured for more exact number, she said she answers such question with 299 for few centuries now.[22] While she can mean it as joke or started saying it before actually reaching 299, more probably it really means she's more than 499 years old.

For upper limit, we have ever less to go on ... if she would be more than 2000 years old, she MIGHT say she's "thousands" of years old instead - but she may not want to admit it, possibly even to herself. Or, she might lost count.

AbilitiesEdit

So far Pandora' only abilities have been shown to be shape-shifting,[23] tearing holes in dimensions,[24] and returning her son's illusion.[25] She also appears to teleport, but it CAN be just her going invisible.

Marking people Edit

So far, we know Pandora gave magic marks to following people:

Not only is this a vast majority of all marked people in comic (only one mark was given by someone else - the one Susan got), it's also very unusual and dangerous[18] that she is marking people without their knowledge or consent. It's probable that she is using some loophole by giving necessary information to people while invisible[33], so they don't really hear her, similarly how Voltaire was using loophole with "empowering and guiding" Dex.[34]

We also still seem to have two marks unaccounted for.[35]

TriviaEdit

Chaos shifting

A part of Pandora' cloud form.

  • Pandora's cloud form is said to be constantly shifting and changing, with parts splitting and combining randomly while still giving the appearance of a regular pattern of movement. Dan Shive has claimed that Pandora in her cloud form would be one of the hardest things he could think of to animate.[36]
  • It is possible she has not reset in a long time, which would explain some of her insanity.
  • Challenge Rating of 5 is selling Pandora's physical form short[37]
