The Dresden Files: Portland
House Raith Operative
Nerise Patel was raised by House Raith in Chicago. She does not know her parents, nor does she know what House they belonged to. When Nerise came of age, she was sent to Portland to oversee the House’s interests there. Since then, she has done well, maintaining a lucrative club and seeing to it that the other White Court vampires are well-fed.
Nerise is a ruthless businesswoman who loves her job.
UPDATE (Jan 1, 2014): Nerise and her associate Clive are currently on the run, as a Peregrine Raith has enacted a coup and taken all of her Portland holdings from her. She is still in contact with Brianna Karkana.
