Dresden Files

Abby is a member of Ordo Lebes, and, later, of the Chicago Alliance. She first appears in White Night.


Abby seems to know what Harry Dresden and Karrin Murphy are going to say half a second before they say it. Dresden thinks she may be prescient.[1]

Abby seems to be a bit scatter-brained because of her prescient abilities. Dresden explains that it's because she was trying to keep track of what was happening, what was likely to happen, and deciding what wasn't likely to happen, all in a few seconds—it's worse if she can see farther ahead, more possibilities exist.[1]

Dresden describes Abby as prettily plump, shorter than Murphy, probably in her mid-forties; with blond hair, and rosy, cherubic cheeks. She looked used to smiling.[1]
