The New Teen Titans Part Eighteen. The Coming of Raven aka Bringing Up Baby

With the now Pregnant Angela Roth now abandoned and returned to Earth, Trigon continued to manipulate the Mother of his unborn child. This part of his plan was now to place his soon to be born Child in the ideal place so that it could be of use to him in his quest for complete domination. Trigon worried that Angela now knowing what he really was would try to hurt his child.

Angela was confused and annoyed at realising that  the future she had longed for, a good husband and a happy family, was nothing but a fake illusion. She wanted to be happy, but how could she with a child conceived by pure evil. She contemplated if she should or could go through with having this baby at all.

 Knowing Angela's confused state of mind,   Trigon manipulated the his enemies the priests of Azarath to journey to Earth in search of Angela Roth. He knew that the mother of his soon-to-be child would be safe under the care of these pacifists. If they cared for his child they would not try to destroy it before he could use his offspring.  The Priest Guided by the sprite of their faith found Angela and after convincing her that they would be able to help her and her baby stay free of Trigon's Evil finally brought her to Azarath.
The Priests of Azarath invite Angela to go with them for protection and guidance.

Part of accepting her into their ranks they renamed Arella in order to hopefully free her from her unfortunate past.... They hoped Arella would be free of her old life as Angela. The name meaning of Arella in Azarathian  was The Messenger  Angel.

Not everyone in Azarath was pleased to know that the wife of Trigon was among them, let alone she was carrying his unborn child. Some worried that This so called Messenger  Angel could mean their destruction. The priests and ruling council of Azarath realised that should the child of Trigon be allowed to grow and be born on Earth, its existence would threaten all life on that planet, and indeed, the entire universe as well. Within their dimension Trigon had little power and they believed with their guidance maybe they could stop this child becoming evil...... and even a weapon to use against Trigon if needed.

Shortly thereafter, Arella gave birth to a daughter who was provided an Azarathian name -  Raven.
One of the ruling council called Juris, felt that Raven's existence threatened the sanctity on all life on Azarath. Indeed her birth had caused the beautiful skies of their world to turn as black as the heart of Trigon himself. To safeguard his people, he elected to break Azarath's most sacred law - the taking of a human life. Snatching Raven from her nursemaid, he attempted to hurl the child through the Great Door into the Limbo realm separating Azarath from other dimensions.

The Baby Raven brought to the Great Door. 

 Upon opening the door however, Juris exposed himself to the power of Trigon who disintegrated him with a blast of energy from the realm contained by the Great Door barrier. Raven however, was unharmed.
The priest is destroyed before he can caste Raven into the abyss. 
The Priests knew that Raven's safety became paramount and with regret and sadness Arella allowed her child to be taken from her to be guided in the ways of peace. Away from the Human love of her Mother Raven began her long journey into adulthood. The grand-daughter of the original Azar herself raised Raven and trained her to keep her emotions in check, lest Trigon’s evil side within her would be set free.
