* PlayedForDrama in the second Literature/DresdenFiles book, ''Fool Moon''. One of Harry's friends, a low-level practitioner, comes to him with a few idle questions about a ritual that he knows is designed to contain creatures that are both mortal ''and'' spirit -- in other words, extremely dangerous beings that [[EvilIsNotAToy she has no business trafficking in]]. Naturally, he doesn't answer and tries to deflect her away from the question. However, [[spoiler: she needs the ritual to help contain one of the villains of the book, a powerful werewolf. When she tries to use the ritual anyway, it doesn't work and she ends up dead.]]
