Uriel,[Footnote 1] also known as the Watchman, is an Archangel. He first appears in Small Favor.


Harry Dresden describes Uriel as aggravating and scary; with something "hideously absolute" about him, unyielding and unchanging, that makes Dresden feel fragile. Dresden also calls him the Spymaster,[1] and describes him as Heaven's spook.[2]

One of his main tasks is to preserve free will, often employing dead spirits in a metaphorical police stations.[3][1]

In the seriesEdit

Uriel acts as an advisor and guide to Harry Dresden, starting small and under disguise,[2][4] and increasing his might and majesty during the series.[5]
