* her status as a sort of outcast, exploring the Nevernever alone - changelings are often not really accepted by either humans nor faeries.

*** On further thought, a good candidate might just be good ol' Leanansidhe. She *is* the only one with access to the NeverNever side of his apartment, after all. However, if it is her, she missed a good moment to crow about it when she was talking to him about the defenses she had put in place.

There's a number of hints that he's a good bit more cunning than Dresden assumes, especially politically, and he really knows his magic. He's also got a lot of experience sitting on the Council and has been involved in at least the battles with Kemmler. Also, the Gatekeeper technically reports to him, and he can make his spells stick against outsiders: he repels an army of Outsiders and Vampires in the [=NeverNever=] with a single ward. That's a pretty tough thing to manage, since there would be no threshold to anchor it on and I doubt circles are impenetrable there. It's thus likely he's fought them before and possible he knows about Nemesis. If he does, that casts his actions in a different light on a number of occasions: 1. His defensive approach to the Red Court war. Acting aggressively would increase the risk of high-ranking members being captured and infected by Nemesis, and he may have anticipated fighting Outsiders all along, which ended very poorly for the Council when they were forced into doing it. 2. His insistence that no Black Council existed. Telling people about Nemesis would induce crippling paranoia because anyone could ''become'' a traitor at basically any time, while telling people a shadowy organization existed would induce people to believe that it acts like a mundane organization. 3. Putting Morgan on trial. In addition to the political worries, he could have believed that Morgan had been infected. 4. His vendetta against Harry. Harry was in actual combat with a Walker and miraculously survived, which seems highly suspicious. Even if his status as a Starborn were known, he has a lot of trouble fighting He-Who-Walks-Before even after becoming the Winter Knight.

[[WMG:Evil Bob has been snooping around Demonreach's [=NeverNever=].]]
The island-spirit said "ANOTHER ONE" when it encountered Harry and Bob in ''Cold Days''. Presumably it wasn't talking about Harry, but about a memory spirit that appears as a skull with points of light in its eye sockets. As Evil Bob doesn't seem to have a sanctuary-skull to be carried in, he'd more likely come to the island via the [=NeverNever=].

* Like Merlin, he will take on an Obi-Wan role for a group of {{Badass Normal}}s, maybe Knights of the Cross, maybe Einharjar, or maybe [[PostModernMagic ex-police security consultants]].

** That... actually seems likely. Or at least that Mac is a lot more powerful and BadAss than the books have let on so far.

[[WMG:Margaret LeFey was building an army of evil supernaturals for a good cause.]]
2 things we know about Harry's mother are that she knew the ways better then anybody else on the White Council and that she liked to hang around with supernaturals of questionable alignment, including vampires and Denarians.
Maybe during her explorations she ran into the outer gates and witnessed the battle between Unseelie and the Outsiders. Knowing that a mayor Outsider incursion is only a single lost battle away she decided to prepare the world by creating an alliance out of factions the White Council wouldn't usually ally themselves with, figureing that these had as much interest in keeping reality intact as any of the "good guys".
In a twist Harry's enemies, the Red Court and the Denarians, were actually loyal the Maggies cause, while Harry's part-time ally, the White Court, stabbed her in the back.
Nicodemus in particular is 'still' loyal to Maggies cause, which explains his angry reaction when he heard about one of his people being infected with Nemesis. Everything we have seen him doing so far were just him trying to prepare and strengthen himself and his retinue, in the only way he knew how (forcefully recruiting powerful members, stealing powerful artifacts/weapons and empowering himself by being evil).

** FridgeBrilliance: In some versions of the myths Merlin is said to live backwards going from age to youth and remember the future.

[[WMG:Mister is Ferrovax]]
* Ferrovax is a creature that (according to WordOfGod) can throw down at Mab's level. And he is a natural shapeshifter. And he seems to have a natural talent for True Names (which, as Mister he would have heard Harry say). So he takes the form of a cat, and uses his vast power and Harry's name to make the disguise stick even under the Sight. Sure, Ferrovax seems antagonist when he first appears, but that was just to guard his cover.

* In ''Ghost Story'', after Molly confirms Harry's identity with her Sight, she asks him, "Have you come to take me away?" Many depictions of angels involve them scorting souls to the afterlife.
