In the series[]

Death Masks[]

In Death Masks, she has blonde hair. Her nickname is "Hobbit", which she dislikes.[1]

Skin Game[]

In Skin Game, she has grown to a quiet high-school age young woman, now used to and accepting her nickname.[2]

Peace Talks[]

In Peace Talks, Hope has grown into a "very serious young woman to whom adolescence had been uncommonly generous", according to Harry Dresden. She often babysits Maggie, and it is on one such occasion that a slew of Svartalf security guards attempt to storm Molly Carpenter's apartment where she is babysitting. They are ostensibly doing so to secure her and Maggie for safe escort out of the compound, which was under attack, but Mouse drives them back and keeps them safe until Dresden arrives to get them both to safety.[3]
