Dresden Files
White Court

Elisa Raith is a White Court vampire, sister to Lara Raith and Natalia Raith[1] and lives on the Raith estate. She first appears in Turn Coat.


Elisa is described by Harry Dresden as wearing nothing but weapons and silver body piercings on one eyebrow, one nostril, her lower lip and her nipples. She has dark, close-cropped hair except for the dark bangs that fall to cover one of her eyes. She carries a pair of wavy swords like Lara's.[2]

In the series[]

Turn Coat[]

In Turn Coat, when Shagnasty the Naagloshii, abducts Thomas Raith, and invades the Raith estate, Justine reports that Elisa, Natalia and Madeline Raith are in the house.[1]

The three sisters start to prowl simultaneously without receiving any signal. Shagnasty shape-shifts into a fallen security guard to get past them at Dresden. Dresden warns Lara, and she engages Shagnasty in a fight. A few beats later, he throws Elisa against the wall where she lays limp.[2]

After the medic in charge gives his report on the status of three human guards: Hennesy, Calo, Wilson, injured by Shagnasty, Lara orders Hennesy brought to Natalia's chamber and Calo brought to Elisa. Both men had their backs broken permanently. Lara comes later for Wilson, who lost both eyes.[3]

Later on, Elisa and Natalia join Lara and Dresden on the island of Demonreach to fight Madeline and Shagnasty.[4]
