Lacuna, or Captain Hook, is a Faerie, a pixie or Wee Folk, in the service of Ace. She first appears in Cold Days.


If Molly has a turkey baster, maybe you can waterboard him.Karrin Murphy, referring to Lacuna[1]
Like Toot-Toot, Hook leads a group of Wee Folk with orange lights—what Harry Dresden calls piranha pixies.

Unlike the Za-Lord's Guard, she has a thirst for battle.[2] She also despises pizza and prefers to eat healthier food like celery such as is provided by Molly Carpenter.[2] Lacuna claims that Ace owes her for services rendered and that he does not like Dresden.[2]

Captain Hook is almost as tall as Toot-Toot. Dressed all in black with and covered in a fish hook armor, Dresden first nicknames the fairy "Captain Hook". Lacuna carries an actual sword, of which Toot-Toot seems to be quite jealous.[3]

Without her helmet, Lacuna was gorgeous. Her black hair was in a foot-long braid, she had huge black eyes, paper-white skin with deep purple tattoos that shifted, faded and reappeared. Her features were long and lean. Lacuna had an elegant, dangerous beauty.[2]

Cold DaysEdit

In Cold Days, Lacuna's group attack Harry Dresden and nearly defeat him using nails until they are frightened away by an illusion of cats cast by Molly Carpenter.[3] Dresden captures her when the hooks on her armor get caught on his jacket,[1] and taken prisoner; she invokes Winter Law making her effectively Dresden's vassal; she is however not cooperative when Dresden interrogates her. Smitten Toot-Toot offers Lacuna a watermelon candy, which she refuses with a punch to his face.[2]

Skin GameEdit

In Skin Game, Harry Dresden mentions sending out Lacuna and Toot-toot with messages for Mab and Molly Carpenter.[4]
