The "Black Maiden' held within her tha potential to transform into a destructive force. Despite this, out of respect for the kind prophetess, Ralle endeavored to bring about those great things of which the old woman had spoken. Each day she worked, until finally she had gained control over her power. Having at last perfected her ability, Ralle was able to use it to bring prosperity to her people.
Ralle translates from German as "rail, crake". Rallidae, are a large cosmopolitan family of small- to medium-sized birds. The family exhibits considerable diversity and also includes the crakes, coots, and gallinules. The beak is the most variable feature within the family: in some species it is longer than the head (like the Clapper Rail of the Americas), in others it may be short and wide (as in the coots), or massive (as in the purple gallinules).
