Does anyone have a power heirarchy for the characters in the Dresden Files? I know that the Fae queens, the Erlking, and Uriel are probably at the top of the list, but what about the other characters?

Good question! But power is unequal to talent so that is always confusing and hard to judge. Harry's still pretty weak in pure power terms, but he's talented enough to make up for it.

Don't forget Ivy.

I'm not sure about the fae queens. They seem pretty variable.
I think I'd put the Vamp Kings at about par with the senior wizards and the Taken (maybe Nicodemos a rank above)

reading fox - I agree talent and power dont always run hand in hand. Molly has talent but she has a way to go power wise. Also "home ground" advantage seems to play a role. If they are out of their element or comfort zone they dont do as well.

This would be a tough call.

Odin, or whatever name he's going by these days, has some oomph.

For mortals, Listens to Wind seems to kick butt.

It's strange,
They imply "God", archangles, paladins etc. But have never
implied a chief, a Devil on the other side.

"God" isn't one entity, there are several major powers of a generally benevolent leaning. None of them that I can tell is considered the top dog. IE, the Christian God isn't the top of the heap. There are also major demons wandering around, such at the Outsiders, which are apparently of the Cthulu-esque nature.

They don't make it really clear about the middle ground. I agree with jrg1316 about the ones on top, and I think at one point Dresden said he was in the top 25 or something... but that there was still a big gap between him and Merlin. Maybe the Senior Council should generally be listed up there too.

I like that Harry admits that Molly is better at veils than he is, even as he says that while she's got that sphere of power down she needs more work on others. It may be that since she doesn't have Harry's sheer power she has to be more adept with what she has. Harry has admitted that he has so much power he has trouble controlling it.

I do look forward to how his new job impacts the wizardry.

When it comes to being able to throw power around, Dresden is defiantly a middle/heavyweight. He doesn't do finesse, but I think he's proven that he is ready and willing to use more power than almost anyone else, regardless of his own safety. Sure, he's no Erlking, but as far as mortals go, I'd think he's top 10. He's come a long way since Storm Front.
