Ancient Mai is a human wizard and a member of the Senior Council. She first appears in Summer Knight


She is over 400 years old,[1] with granite colored hair, "rheumy" eyes and is said to be very creepy and scary.(reference needed)

She has "precious little gift when it comes to actual combat magic".[2]

Ancient Mai is Chinese and, as Harry Dresden describes her, she looks a delicate and frail as an eggshell teacup. She has long white hair with jade combs holding it up. She still has a haunting, ethereal beauty, though old even by Council norms. Her eyes are dark, peircing and merciless.(reference needed)

Harry finds her a very scary person.[3][4]


An elderly Asian woman. She appears to handle contact with other supernatural powers for the Council, having sent emissaries to both Faerie Courts at the start of Summer Knight.[5]
