reave ~ reft { Isn't that a nice word, especially the past participle?} Incidentally it means, in one form, 'to  carry out raids in order to plunder'. You can find a better definition here, my choice of dictionary. I want to use it somewhere one day, maybe on this blog but I would like to have it flow into a conversation, it rolls off the tongue naturally considering the Kiga predilection to rrrs.

I came across it in a Neil Gaiman story on Fifty Two Stories, a short story collection blog from Harper Perennial, an excellent read if you ever get enough time.
