%%* CantHaveSexEver: As they represent the Crone and are not the Mother of their triumverate, like the Maiden, they likely cannot have sex or risk becoming a Mother once more.



* NotSoDifferent: From Titania. Both are loving mothers to their daughters and want for no harm to come to them. They also knew their child had been claimed by Nemesis and couldn't bring their hand down to stop them.

They also knew their child had been claimed by Nemesis and couldn't bring their hand down to stop them. Where Mab departs from Titania is that she explicitly orders Harry to kill Maeve when a critical moment is just days away.



* ThePowerOfLove: Mab understands and respects this human emotion, probably more than any other human emotion because Love, of all else, can lead to corruption without truly realizing one is corrupted. Furthermore while Thomas is a near-immortal vampire, the fact he loves Justine so deeply is reason enough to consider him mortal enough to offer him the Mantle of the Winter Knight, should something untoward happen to Harry.
-->'''Mab:''' So many terrible things are done for love. For love will men mutilate themselves and murder rivals. For love will even a peaceful man go to war. For love, man will destroy himself, and that right willingly.

[[folder: The Scarecrow]]
!!The Scarecrow

One of Mab's retainers, the Scarecrow is an old and powerful faerie known as a fetch: a shapeshifting creature that feeds on fear and serves as Winter's enforcers, assassins, and messengers. Most fetches assume forms of creatures or people that their targets fear, i.e. movie horror monsters in the modern era, but these are simply illusionary forms or constructs made of ectoplasm. The Scarecrow, however, is old enough that he can shape his entire body to resemble his namesake: a massive, pumpkin-headed monster made out of old, supernaturally-powerful vines and roots covered in rags. The Scarecrow is behind the fetch attacks on the horror movie convention in ''Proven Guilty'' and kidnapped Molly, though not all is as it seems . . .

* AchillesHeel: Like all faeries, fetches are vulnerable to iron. As a Winter fae, Scarecrow is vulnerable to fire, too, particularly fire conjured by Summer. However, Scarecrow and his fetch minions are also vulnerable to those who are not afraid of them; they can neither sense them nor use their fear as a shield or source of power. A fearless Harry wielding Summer fire is enough to panic Scarecrow.

* TheMcCoy: According to Titania, compared to Mab, Titania is the far more emotional and empathetic of the two. This does not equal morality, however, because if Titania becomes offended or hurt in anyway (looking at you Harry), her natural inclination is to take vengeance, even if doing so is irrational or detrimental. Titania is able to stop herself from hurting Harry, but it takes her a lot of effort and years of counseling, and even with the fate of the world at stake refuses to forgive him or help him with more than a few small hints.

When she has Harry off the ground and inches from doing things to him that make Lloyd Slate's fate look positively merciful, she relents and lets Harry go with the name of the enemy which infected her daughter. However, she tells him that she will never be able to truly forgive him for what he's done, and refuses to offer any ''more'' help, even with the fate of the world at stake.

* BiggerIsBetter: The Gruffs come in waves, with each "older brother" bigger, stronger and tougher than the last. Then subverted: the Eldest Gruff is barely 5 feet tall and yet is orders of magnitude more dangerous than any of the others.
* BystanderSyndrome: Averted in ''Cold Days'' of himself, Kringle, and Erlking, he is the only one to give Harry a slight hint to Sarissa being taken away by The Red Cap. Rather justified in that he's the most 'good' morality-wise of the three.

* DumbMuscle: Very much averted. He is very sharp, quick thinking, and respects these traits in others too. It is one reason he respects Harry, for while he may be weaker than the Erlking physically and magically, he was more than quick enough to take a slip of the Elking's tongue and use it against him.
* EvilLaugh: Judging by Harry's narration when TheWildHunt is fighting Outsiders during ''Cold Days,'' the Erlking's laughter sounds a lot like this.

* OurGoblinsAreDifferent: In the Dresdenverse, Goblins are supernatural huntsmen with asymmetric faces and unusually cruel hunting implements. When mentioned that Harry and Susan were supposed to be able to handle [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings a million of the without trouble]], Harry mentions that the ''real'' Goblins are like ninjas from Krypton. The Erlking himself is an honorable entity who will honor his word, even if he regrets doing so, and is much more concerned with "kingly" pursuits like hunting and fighting than sneaking or tinkering.

Exactly as the name implies, these guys are TheFairFolk. They're mostly divided into the warring Summer and Winter Courts, with those outside the Courts known as "wyldfae." The Fae are ruled by a Byzantine series of laws and restrictions that govern how various members of each Court can act, but they have become masters at working within these restrictions. For example, as a rule they CannotTellALie, but they're absolutely ruthless [[RulesLawyer rules lawyers]] about ExactWords, and being in debt to a faerie is... bad, to say the least. They range in power from the relatively harmless (pixies) to the greater-than-godlike (Mother Summer and Mother Winter). Luckily for the PunyEarthlings, all Fae have an AchillesHeel: iron and steel will burn them and cut through their magic instantly.

The Queen - IE Central ruler, more powerful than the Lady but less so than the Mother, as well as most visible face - of the Winter Court of Faerie. More so than any other high-ranking fae (except perhaps for the Leanandsidhe) she has a tendency to pop up in Harry's life at the very moments he doesn't want her around. Which is pretty much all the time. Her daughter Maeve is the Winter Lady.
