White Council

Carlos Ramirez is a human wizard and Warden of the White Council. He first appears in Death Masks, and properly introduced in Dead Beat.


He works as a Warden of the White Council. Ramirez was the youngest ever regional commander in the Wardens.[1]

He is a combat specialist[2] and talented with veils.(reference needed) In addition to a silver sword he carries a handgun and several grenades.[3][1]

Ramirez has naturally tanned skin, dark hair, dark eyes, and sharp-edged features (described by Dresden as "classically Spanish"); he is of average height.[1] Ramirez always talks about his sexual adventures, and seems to have an obsession with hot chicks. Embarrassingly enough, in White Night, Lara Raith identifies him as a virgin.[4]


Carlos Ramirez is a fierce fighter, who rides Sue, the zombie Tyrannosaurus Rex with Dresden in Dead Beat, aids Harry Dresden (in his flashback) in White Night, and also fights alongside Dresden in the same book.

In the seriesEdit

Dead BeatEdit

In Dead Beat, he fights alongside Luccio. He killed Grevane while the necromancer was distracted by Dresden. He was knocked out when Cowl magically threw him.[5] When the Darkhallow was interrupted, he was protected from its backlash by the reanimated Sue's body, which Bob moved to stand over Ramirez. Ramirez survived the events, albeit with four broken ribs and two dislocated shoulders.[6]

"War Cry"Edit

He is, however, captured by the latter's Red Court vampires.[7]

In Changes, Carlos Ramirez is on guard duty outside the Senior Council Residence Hall. He called after Harry Dresden who can't stop being in the middle of a crisis. Molly promises to call him if he can help.[9] Later, Dresden learns in a letter from Steed, that Ramirez was arrested along with some other young Wardens. They tried to rescue another group of young Wardens who had gotten together to make an attempt to kill Arianna Ortega and were discovered by Cristos and so were locked up.[10]

Ghost StoryEdit

In Ghost Story, Murphy says that she will kick up to the Wardens the problem of missing Paranetters in Oregon to the Fomor is other cities. She'll get Ramirez's help specifically on this.[11]

Cold DaysEdit

In Cold Days, Thomas Raith updated Harry Dresden on what's going on and told him that Carlos Ramirez had been hurt real bad against the Fomor, a year earlier; he's not back in action yet. Warden Bill Meyers in Texas is giving the Fomor hell. The Wardens in Baltimore and San Diego are holding their own.[12]

"Cold Case"Edit

In "Cold Case", he teams up with Molly Carpenter in order to deal with the Holy Ascension of Our Lord in Unalaska.[Footnote 1] Later, he gets gravely hurt by her Mantle when they try to have sex.[13]


He uses a gauntlet as his focus. It projects a partial disintegration screen using entropy magic, a specialization of water magic.[14]
