The Raven's Cellar is a small Forever Knight faction comprising fans who see a potential relationship between Tracy Vetter (Nick Knight's partner in Season Three) and Miklos (bartender at the Raven nightclub in Season Two). The relationship is obviously not canon, for the characters never met during the actual television series. The affiliation only appears on the more extensive lists of factions.

Faction History

The Raven's Cellar essentially existed within the Dark Perkulators mailing list, where it was more or less a joke perpetrated by two members of the Dark Perks, Cousin Mary and Shana Nolan. Ultimately, the other members of the main faction insisted they stop.

The Raven's Cellar was a running gag in the Dark Perks' thread in War 12.

Oded Fehr

Some fan art was included on the Raven's Cellar website, especially a large picture on the intro page. However, another actor was substituted for Earl Pastko, who had played Miklos in the series. Oded Fehr had appeared in The Mummy and The Mummy Returns; and a number of fans considered him to be appropriately cast in the role. A joke faction, the Tattooed Desert Dude Appreciation Society (a/k/a the Tattooed Desert Guy Appreciation Society), was created in his honour.

Faction Icon

In 2012, Greer Watson created an icon for the Raven's Cellar as part of her project to create a set of icons for all the Forever Knight factions. The design composits a screen capture of Tracy with a photograph of Oded Fehr. The background is a screen capture of the cellar of the Raven, from the episode "Hunters". The nightclub sign is used for the first word in the name of the faction. For the second word, the letters from the sign were reworked to create additional letters in the same style.[1]
