Dresden Files

Brother Wang (or Master Wong) is a Tibetan monk. He first appears in Blood Rites.


Harry Dresden describes Brother Wang as a short, wiry Asian man in sweeping robes the color of sunset. His bald head gleamed, and his features were wrinkled with the marks of someone who smiles a lot. His English is worse than Dresden's Latin.[1]

In the series[]

Blood Rites[]

In Blood Rites, Brother Wang hired Harry Dresden to rescue some kidnapped Temple Dogs. Brother Wang believe their ancestors were Foo Dogs.[Footnote 3] Dresden meets him in the chapel at O'hare Airport to return the pups. Brother Wang is somewhat disappointed in that all the dogs that were kidnapped, were not recovered. Unknown to both Brother Wang and Dresden, Mouse was hiding in the Blue Beetle, and as a result missed Brother Wang's return flight.[2][1]

It is unknown if Dresden ever got in touch with Brother Wang to inform him of what transpired with Mouse.

"Zoo Day"[]

In "Zoo Day", Mouse refers to him as Master Wong and describes him as kind.[3]

Word of Jim[]

[Mouse] does have a bunch of brothers and sisters who wonder how come they haven’t heard from him. ‘You never howl, you never pee on anything….’ And plus, there is…uh, I will just say that the possibility exists that Harry didn’t rescue all of them, and if so, where are the others?Jim Butcher, noting that the evil sorcerer might still have one or more of Brother Wang’s puppies, leaving open a possible future meeting with Mouse’s "evil twin".[4]
