Will this be a player class?

I was thinking a race. Not a class. They'd be fighters, clerics, barbarians.

I like the more eccentric name, especially for something that is getting connected in some way to Norse... give em something rather Norse-sounding (ie why I suggested such Norwegian, Icelandic, Finnish... there are other such sources to consider that I did not look at like Swedish, Danish, German, Dutch or other Northern European).
I would do something like:
"Hrafn, or Ravenkin as they are commonly known, ... blah blah blah"

That way they get their exotic name, or the name they call themselves in their native tongue... yet a name that is a little more universal.

Just my 2cents.
Is it really the end, not some crazy dream?

Right, I should have said race. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

In Swedish would be "korpfödd" or "korpfolk". I could check out an old Swedish or Old Norse equivalent.

Hardly surprising that raven is "ramn" i Old Swedish and people is "folk", so raven people would be: "ramnfolk"

"Kin" is bit tricky for Modern Swedish speakers since the Old Swedish word "kön" used to mean kin, but today it refers to biological sex or gender. So "ramnkön" might be a bit strange but there is a variant in Old Swedish: "kyn". So "ramnkyn" might be a better choice.

TLDR: "ramnfolk" "ramnkyn"
