The Dresden Files: Portland
Red Court Vampire
Armando Barrientos worked for the Medellin Cartel in his younger, wilder days. That is, until the cartel was disbanded by the Columbian government and their US backers. Despondent, he found himself in Buenos Aires, drinking his cares away, when he was seduced, and later attacked, by a member of the Red Court.
Since that time, Armando has embraced his status as a member of a favored bloodline. His sire, Gloriana, sent him to Portland to start recruiting for the war.
One night, when he first arrived in Portland, he attacked but spared a young detective investigating a drug ring there. That woman, Sabrina Manheim, was left for dead while Armando recovered from his frenzy. He has been trying to find her and take her on the next step of her journey.
For a while, he was seducing a young Asian woman named Hana Nakamoto. One night, he was confronted by her friends and she was escorted away. He toyed with the idea of revenge but had other tasks at hand—tasks that included orchestrating an attack on some locals as a skirmish in the war against the White Council.
