Spent a day or so working on this for fun. Been a while since I put effort into something for myself. This is one of my current PCs in one of my group’s campaigns, Finnian Stormsteel, Eiliza’s son, and his raven, Harriet.
(explanation of the red thread continued in the replies)
Harriet is a raven familiar issued by the Raven Queen because Finn is a paladin to her. So the red string symbolizes Finn’s connection through his spirit and soul to his familiar. Every living thing needs to be tied to the world somehow, and something artificial like Harriet needs a base to be tied to.
