The Dresden Files: Portland
Desperate Street Preacher
Broderick Cartland is a widower. He lost his wife in the birth of his son, Aiden. He’s raised his son in his non-denominational, Pentecostal church all his life. Broderick is the pastor there. However, Aiden, who is now 17, has run off to join this “cult” led by a man called Keegan Doyle. Broderick has tried many times to cajole Aiden to come home, to no avail. According to Broderick—the demon has his hooks into him.
Broderick is a quite a researcher into the occult and has learned of the “legendary” Karkana and has finally latched onto Brianna and is following her. He wants her to user her power to fill him with “God’s fiery wrath” so that he may “smite the demon that has his son in his vile clutches”.
UPDATE: Aiden has since been rescued from the cult and he is now back to preaching at the Pentecostal Mission House in downtown Portland.
