This article is for the priest. For the private detective, see Vincent Graver.

Father Vittorio Vincent[1] was a priest from Egypt. He first appears in Death Masks.


He was murdered by the Denarians in order for them to impersonated him and thus be able to hire the help of Dresden to locate the Shroud of Turin.


He was a little over average height and thin, his skin burned into tanned leather by the sun. He was said to look anywhere between forty and sixty. His hair was greying and neatly cut, and he wore a black suit with a white clerical collar sharing space with a rosary and crucifix at his throat.[2]

The Eye of Thoth

He also had a tattoo, roughly an inch square, located on the inside of the bicep, a faded green ink in the shape of a symbolic open eye (the Eye of Thoth).[3]

Death MasksEdit

Main article: Death Masks

In Death Masks, Harry Dresden is hired by Father Vincent to find the Shroud of Turin which was stolen by the Churchmice, a band of thieves.[4]

Shortly after, Karrin Murphy brought Harry to the Forensic Institute where Waldo Butters showed him a corpse. It had been decapitated, his hand cut off and it was heavily mutilated. And it also was riddled with multiple plagues. The only identifying feature was a Eye of Thoth tattoo.[3]

Later, Harry sees the same tattoo on Father Forthill's arm that was on the corpse in the morgue. Forthill told Harry that Father Vincent has one too, which tipped Harry to the fact that corpse was the real Vincent and the one he'd been hired by was an imposter, a Denarian: Quintus Cassius.[1]
