Raven is an American TV series that originally aired on CBS in 1992–1993. This hour-long action drama featured martial arts, adventure, humor, mystery and secret societies.


Jonathon Raven, a ninja-trained former Special Forces agent retires to Hawaii and uses his skills to help those in need and to search for his long-lost son, while avoiding assassins sent to kill him by his former associates in the Black Dragon Clan. He is assisted by an eccentric private investigator named Jablonski.


When Jonathon Raven was twelve years old, his parents were killed by the Black Dragon. He trained with them for many years in the deadly martial arts with the hopes of learning and mastering their lethal skill and then using it against them for vengeance. Although he succeeded in infiltrating them, the Black Dragon are many in number, and are now bent on destroying Raven's bloodline. His one true love, a beautiful Japanese woman named Aki, becomes pregnant with their son at the same time the Black Dragon clan is after Raven's life. Aki unfortunately dies shortly after giving birth to their son, but before she passes away, she realizes that her son's life is in danger. Jonathon learns of his wife's plan of hiding their son from imperilment, but sadly never gets to see him or attain the knowledge of his location. Later on, he joins the U.S. Special Forces and becomes one of their top assassins under a man named Nick Henderson. After many complications and regrets, Raven leaves the Special Forces and continues his search for his long-lost son. His search eventually leads him to Honolulu, Hawaii, where he believes his son may be. Raven is on a lifelong journey in search of his son, and is willing to risk his life along the way to find him and ensure the safety of his life, with the aid of his old military buddy - a drunken private investigator named Herman "Ski" Jablonski.
