Well, I suppose I could say that I’ve got a lot of coworkers, but it depends how you define them. Some people would classify all wizards as co-workers. Me? No. So let’s go with Wardens. They are the ones I have to deal with the most, after all.

Since I was made Regional Commander of Western United States (at the ripe old age of 25), I’ve had to deal with a lot more people than I used to, but our numbers are still small. I’ve got six guys reporting directly to me, spread throughout the States – well, my half. They’re good guys, and do what they can, but they haven’t seen as much action as I have. They’re getting better – a couple of years ago I wouldn’t trust them with more than a couple of vamps in a dark alley, but now... I pretty much give them free reign, and they come to me when they need me, or need numbers – which let’s face it, is pretty often. They are also pretty cool guys – certainly we’ve had good times when we aren’t being attacked by ghouls or vampires.

Then there is my co-Regional Commander, Harry Dresden. Dresden... well, he’s a bit of an enigma. Everyone knows his history – how he was under the threat of the Doom for years after he killed his guardian, but in self-defence. Most of the wizarding community avoids him for that very reason. But Harry? There’s something about him. He’s the kind of person that events happen around. Hell, the first time I met him, we ended up riding a zombie dinosaur to prevent an apocalypse. Trust me, that never happens to most wizards. He’s odd, though. I mean, he can barely get by in Latin, but he understands ghoulish and Ancient Etruscan? And that whole fuss with Morgan – Harry was in the middle of it all, I can guarantee.

I guess it’s safe to say that Harry isn’t like most wizards.

My superiors – well I try to have as little to do with them as possible. I get the feeling they don’t appreciate my friendship with Harry. Tough. The only one I really have contact with is Luccio, now that Morgan is dead, and she’s okay. Well, it’s odd dealing with her after she got was body swapped with Corpsetaker. But I trust her implicitly, and there is not many people I can say that about. Not in this day and age, with all the intrigue and back stabbing that’s happening. You don’t know who to trust.
