Allow me to introduce myself. I am Dominic Michael Faust. Better known as Raven. I am a guitarist for my band called Destruction. I also work at a bar.
I spent most of my early childhood watching my father beat my mother. He never laid a hand on me, no, according to him it was her fault she was getting hit. I was always sent to my room, but I would watch from the stairs, hidden by shadows. I didn’t like to see mommy cry, but daddy said she deserved it.
I did pretty well in school, not smart, not dumb, As and Bs. As I got older the beatings on my mom got worse. And I would hide away in the garage, teaching myself guitar. As I got into my late teenage years, I found some people just as crazy as me to form a band with. We were the normal teenagers, drinking, smoking, spray painting.
When I was 18 my father finally went to far and killed my mother. He went to jail, my mother was dead, and I was left on my own to fend for myself.
I am 23, living in Nevada working in a bar and causing destruction with my band when I’m not working.
