Raunip is a character from The Dark Crystal: Creation Myths graphic novel trilogy.

The adopted son of Aughra, Raunip came from a meteor from another world. Ever loyal to his mother, Raunip was skeptical of the arrival of the UrSkeks and was very uncomfortable with them hiding the crystal behind castle walls away from Thra's native people. His discovery of the UrSkeks having been exiles and heretics of their own world drove his distrust further. He would eventually witness the cracking of the crystal and the creation of the Skeksis and Mystics. In the aftermath, he and Aughra traveled deep within Thra to collect shards of the crystal.
