Name: Carlos Ramirez Age: 30 Job: Wizard, Warden, Regional Commander of Western United States. Physical Description: "He had naturally tanned skin, dark hair, dark eyes, and sharp-edged, classically Spanish features" taken from Dead Beat, by Jim Butcher
Carlos Ramirez is a wizard from the Dresden Files books. He is currently a Warden, and is Regional Commander of the Western half of the United States - the youngest wizard ever to hold such a position (he was appointed to it by the Merlin before he was 25). Although young, he has seen more than his fair share of magical combat due to the ongoing war with the Red Court of Vampires. Magically, he is not as strong as Harry Dresden, but he makes up for it in style. He favors entropy and water magic in battle, and is highly proficient with veils. He, like many of the other younger members of the council, isn't as reliant on magic in combat as more senior members, and will happily stand back with a gun and shoot if things become too dangerous. He is also rarely seen without grenades.
He has a healthy disregard for authority; he admits he inspired by watching Harry Dresden at council meetings. The Merlin (and Harry) regard him as the 'poster boy' for the new generation of wizards. Personality wise, he is cocky and has a lot of bravado, and never believes that he will ever lose a fight. He is personally extremely loyal to Harry, and is always ready to help Harry out when he needs it.
As a Warden, he is responsible for upholding the Seven Laws of Magic - but he isn't as fanatical as some of the other Wardens and Council members, and believes there will always be grey areas.
1. Thou shalt not kill by use of magic. 2. Thou shalt not transform others. 3. Thou shalt not invade the mind of another. 4. Thou shalt not enthrall another. 5. Thou shalt not reach beyond the borders of life. 6. Thou shalt not swim against the Currents of Time. 7. Thou shalt not seek beyond the Outer Gates.
Like all wizards in the Dresdenverse, he can take part in soul gazes, however Carlos doesn't see souls the same way as Harry - he 'hears' a musical theme along with it.
For hearts_andminds Ramirez is from the point of his arrest in Changes, for anywhere else, he is up to current canon. Although he is from book verse primarily, he's happy to work in with TV!verse if a logical way can be found for it!
