Harry Dresden - Monster of the Week
Harry Dresden, Wizard, Lost Items Found, Paranormal Investigations, Consulting and Advice. No love potions. No endless purses. No parties or other entertainment.
The infamous rogue wizard of the White Council. The wizard which fire, chaos and destruction follow in his wake. He's not the oldest or most skilled wizard around, but when he sets about to do something, it damn well gets done.
Dresden is the main character of the Dresden Files series of novels which has spawned a (lackluster) TV series and a very good roleplaying game. He is a marriage of the typical private investigator with the archetypical wizard. He has a particular affinity for tracking spells and fire magic and seems to have a neat little obsession with running down secrets like a bloodhound after a quarry. In general, the things that step in his path tend to regret it, assuming they survive.
