->''"The world is getting weirder. Darker every single day. Things are spinning around faster and faster, and threatening to go completely awry. [[WilliamButlerYeats Falcons and falconers. The center cannot hold.]]\\
But in [[TheWindyCity my corner of the country]], [[{{Protectorate}} I'm trying to nail things down]]. [...] I don't want to live in a world where [[MightMakesRight the strong rule and the weak cower]]. I'd rather make a place where things are a little quieter. Where [[OurTrollsAreDifferent trolls stay the hell under their bridges]], and [[TheFairFolk where elves don't come swooping out to snatch children from their cradles]]. Where [[OurVampiresAreDifferent vampires]] respect the limits, and where the faeries mind their p's and q's.\\
{{My name is|InigoMontoya}} [[MeaningfulName Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden]]. [[BadassBoast Conjure by it at your own risk]]. When things get strange, when what [[ThingsThatGoBumpInTheNight goes bump in the night]] flicks on the lights, when no one else can help you, [[WhoYouGonnaCall give me a call]]. I'm in the book."''

-> Letís get something clear right up front. \\
[[PerspectiveFlip Iím not Harry Dresden.]]\\
Harryís a [[MagicKnight wizard]]. [[BadAss A genuine, honest-to-goodness wizard]]. [[CrazyAwesome Heís Gandalf on crack and an IV of Red Bull]], [[BadassLongcoat with a big leather coat]] and a [[HandCannon .44 revolver in his pocket]]. [[DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu Heíll spit in the eye of gods]] [[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu and demons alike if he thinks it needs to be done]], and to hell with the consequences ó and yet somehow [he] manages to remain a decent human being.\\
Iíll be damned if I know how.\\
But then, Iíll be damned regardless.\\
My name is [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Thomas Raith]], and Iím a [[HornyDevils monster]].

-> They were dealing with [[FamedInStory something far more dangerous than me]], [[HurtingHero Harry Dresden]], who's [[TheAllegedCar battered old Volkswagon]] was currently in the city impound. They were dealing with the [[TheDarkSide potential dark lord nightmare warlock]] they'd been busy fearing [[ThouShaltNotKill since I turned sixteen]]. They were dealing with the wizard who had faced the [[EvilSorcerer Heirs of Kemmler]] riding a [[CrazyAwesome zombie dinosaur]], and emerged victorious from a fight that had flattened [[MagicKnight Morgan]] and [[FullContactMagic Captain Luccio]] before they had even reached it. They were dealing with the man who had [[RefugeInAudacity dropped a challenge to the entire Senior Council]], and who had then actually showed, apparently willing to fight - on the shores of an [[SupervillainLair entirely too creepy island]] in the middle of a freshwater sea.
