Description[edit | edit source]
Too late! Whatever you have done to my thoughts, the master will not be pleased that you have meddled with his servant. Do you know how long I’ve been waiting for that? Sitting there locked behind my own thoughts?— Evil Bob, attacking Dresden.
When Evil Bob first appeared to Harry Dresden, he suddenly shifted from a chaotic cloud of lights to a calm geometric sphere, pulsing red in anger. Unpleasant white eyes formed in the cloud of red lights.
Evil Bob's eye light is a cold blue instead of a warm orange. Without any noticeable personality, he does not share Bob's sense of humor and is disdainful of others, perhaps because any other practitioners look amateurish compared to Kemmler. Evil Bob has a lot of raw psychic power, more than any demon that Dresden's encountered.
Separation from Bob[edit | edit source]
In Ghost Story, Bob indicates that he expunged all Kemmler-related knowledge and personality so that he won't ever become Evil Bob again, and that there was a chance that he had inadvertently created an evil spirit version of himself. The expunged memories comprised about one hundred years of experiences. Evil Bob became an assistant to the ghost of Corpsetaker as she attempted to possess a new body.
In the series[edit | edit source]
Dead Beat[edit | edit source]
In Dead Beat, when Harry Dresden asks Bob to remember what he can concerning Kemmler, Bob refused to answer unless Dresden let him out for the duration of the conversation. Once out, he warned Dresden about the dangers of him accessing these memories. Once ordered to do so, Evil Bob tricked Dresden, entranced him with the lights, into consuming a hint of necromancy—the entity sent a dark blue mote of light toward Dresden's mouth. It almost killed Dresden when he remembered the condition that sent him back into his skull. Dresden orders him to never access that part of his memory again. Later, he was stolen by Cowl and Kumori and assumed an alternate personality—something murderous. When Cowl sets him down, Dresden reminds him of his name and frees him to leave his skull. Bob inhabits Sue the zombie T-Rex, slashes Kumori, freeing Dresden to stop Cowl.
Ghost Story[edit | edit source]
In Ghost Story, Harry Dresden encounters a spirit that that looks like Evil Bob, having green eyes, while fighting the Grey Ghost in front of Mortimer Lindquist's house Evil Bob wants to kill Listen, the leader of the Fomor servitors there as messenger to Lord Omogh. Evil Bob put up defenses to the Nevernever side of Corpsetaker's stronghold that look just like the 1944 D-Day landings at Normandy like in the film: "Saving Private Ryan". His soldiers are wolf-like creatures wearing SS uniforms—"Wolfwaffen". Evil Bob corners Dresden, Dresden stalls till Sir Stuart gets there and hits Evil Bob's shooting arm just as he fired at Dresden, saving Dresden's life. Evil Bob tries to recruit Dresden. Bob and Evil Bob have a showdown in the Nevernever buying time for Dresden and his ghost-troops to cross the Way opening; they appear to be equal in power.
