Raven Familiar: Whenever Bard uses a chip, the data is displayed to her as notes for her to sing and play. The notes form the spell data, which is sent to her Raven familiar. The Raven familiar is simply the focus point for her chip data and counts as one of her hands. The Raven is part of Bard's coding, and as such can be hurt. The damage goes to Bard when this happens. The Raven can be summoned and unsummoned at will and for no actions, as it is a section of Bard's coding to be called upon when needed. The Raven is by all purposes a flying hand of Bard's. In combat she uses it to cover her more stationary battle tatics, and to cover her dislike of melee combat.
System Wise for Raven: The raven can use close combat chips outside of Bard's Range, but if the target is far enough away to where Bard herself would need to make a tatical movement to get to them, the Raven must take that action to use the chip.
