Yep, you read right! Only one more week until the six-year Dresden Drought is OVER! Today is our last countdown post, which I’ve broken into two parts for ease of scrolling, and I decided to go with “And All The Rest.” Pictures, memes, miscellaneous characters, and whatever else I can find in my files that I haven’t already shared. Browse away, and I hope you see some things to make you ooh and aah, or at least smile a bit. Enjoy!
A FEW MISCELLANEOUS CHARACTERS
I’ve talked about Michael Carpenter before, but as you can see by this image, Michael hasn’t been the only Knight of the Cross featured in this series. There were three, Michael, Shiro, and Sanya. Not saying anything specific about Michael or Shiro right now. But this is the only representation I found of Sanya, the Russian knight, and I wanted to include him. He’s truly a fun and interesting character, and adds a lot to the later books.
I’ve also mentioned Harry’s friend, one-man-polka-band and medical examiner Waldo Butters, and I wanted to share a couple more images of Butters . He’s been fun since the beginning, but really comes into his own in Book #13, Ghost Story. You’ll love him and his determination to help Harry, even after his first glimpses of what’s “out there” terrified him. Zombies, anyone?
As White Council Wardens go, one of my very favorites is Carlos Ramirez. He’s vastly amusing, always ready for a fight …
and totally full of himself–but he’s also always there when needed. (Seen below with Molly Carpenter, Michael & Charity’s somewhat wayward daughter, and Dresden’s apprentice wizard.)
Here’s another rendition of Molly. As Harry’s Apprentice Wizard, she’s also known as Grasshopper, Padawan, and several other Dresden-style nicknames.
One More Look at Molly as she’s described in later books.
The White Council’s executioner, Morgan, is essentially an honorable man, but convinced that Harry is not, and determined to catch him using forbidden Black Magic. He’s been the bane of Harry’s existence for almost all of Harry’s life.
Once in a while Morgan almost succeeds in his desire to prove Harry guilty of breaking the Council’s most sacred laws.
Toot-Toot the Fairy is an unforgettable little guy, tiny in stature, but big on courage, especially if there’s pizza being offered as a reward.
And I ask you, who other than Jim Butcher could make the three Billy Goats Gruff scary? (Maybe not up there with demons and Nicodemus, but still … Scary! 😀
I’ll wrap up Part 1 of today’s Countdown Post with this,
but I’ll be back in a bit with Part 2.
