Dresden Files
Red Court

Rachel[1][2] is a human assistant to Bianca St. Claire, who calls her Paula.[3] She first appears in Storm Front.

In the series[]

Storm Front[]

In Storm Front, she was fed upon by Bianca St. Claire and killed. She did so willingly and with pleasure, a state that Harry Dresden reasons is caused by a component of a vampire's saliva, maybe a narcotic of some sort.[1]

Grave Peril[]

In Grave Peril, her death incites Bianca St. Claire to seek revenge against Harry Dresden, who she feels is responsible.[3]

Her ghost visits Dresden while he's locked in a storage room in St. Claire's mansion after being attacked by numerous vampires. She is tired and wants to be freed from the vampire's dominion.[4]

Rachel's ghost, among a horde of other St. Claire's victims that Dresden calls up, goes after the vampire, and brings her down.[5]
