* TooDumbToLive: As pointed out by Harry, her combination of her CripplingOverspecialization, AttackAttackAttack fighting strategy, and rage make her unsuited to go against a fighter of his power and versatility and she never stops to consider the consequences of her attacks or anything beyond that.

* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: The creature's primary name is pretty scary, but also keep in mind he is referred to as "Lord of Slowest Terror." This is speculated in the RPG books that the Walker either loves tormenting his victims (hence the "walks behind" part) or that he is the ''slowest'' of the Walkers, meaning the others are ludicrously fast.

* TookALevelInBadass: In ''Grave Peril'', Mort is a self-proclaimed coward with a bad comb-over and almost completely atrophied abilities. By ''Ghost Story'', he has turned his business around, enlisted the aid of some of the most dangerous ghosts in Chicago and gained a level of raw power rivaling Harry's (within his narrowly specialised field). He also kills the Corpsetaker for good, and this is ''after'' enduring a day of torment by thousands of wraiths at her hands.
