The Dresden Files: Portland
Cult Leading Thaumaturge
Brodsky is a thaumaturge, a specialist in Thaumaturgy, who started a small but earnest cult to “Aratuk”, an ancient demon from the Nevernever worshiped by some natives as a god (Nightstalker). The charismatic cultist first recruited, and then kidnapped Philip Littletree to be a sacrifice for a ritual that was to take place on a ley line that ran through Forest Park. The ritual was disrupted by Dillon Krister, Yuriko Nakamoto, Nick Salieri, and Jim Liwanu.
Brodsky owned a home in Beaverton, which was used as a hang-out for the young people he recruited.
Brodsky was apprehended by Leilani Capstone and is currently in the custody of the White Council and charged with attempting to break the First Law.
