A mortal Knight, he is the champion of one of the Sidhe Courts. He gets powers in line with his court and he's the only one allowed to act in affairs that aren't directly related to the Sidhe. If the Queen wants an outsider dead, he is the trigger man, because a Queen cannot personally kill anyone not in her court.
In the seriesEdit
- Main article: Summer Knight (novel)
In Summer Knight, Mab tries to hire, rather forcefully, Harry Dresden to find the murderer of Ronald Reuel, an artist, and to return what was stolen from him. Bob informs Dresden that Reuel was the Summer Knight, and what was most likely stolen from him was the power of the position, the so-called "Mantle", that is bestowed upon the Knight.
Dresden discovers that the Summer Lady, Aurora, had the traitorous Winter Kinght, kill the Summer Knight so that she could unbalance the Courts. The Summer Lady is eventually defeated, her plan is thwarted, and replaced by Fix, chosen by Lily, the new Summer Lady.
