Species: Domestic cat
Bio: Mister is an exceptionally large gray tomcat who lives with wizard Harry Dresden. Harry consistently describes him as "thirty pounds", but this may be an exaggeration. Mister is also occasionally used by Bob, who possesses Mister in order to move around town during the day because sunlight is deadly to Bob.

Like Mouse, Mister displays above average intelligence for a cat, but does not seem to have any magical qualities. He often goes for long jaunts through Chicago, though Harry doesn't know where the cat goes on these trips.

Species: Tibetan Mastiff, possibly a descendant of a divine guardian spirit-animal. Harry Dresden calls him a cross between a chow and a woolly mammoth, and a "West Highland Dogosaurus." Size reference for Mouse.
Bio: Mouse was a small furry puppy rescued from a group of demons by wizard Harry Dresden. A Tibetan monk employed Harry to recover a stolen litter of puppies believed to be a reincarnation of an ancient Foo spirit. This meant they were supernatural and special, both qualities that Mouse has shown as he has attained his massive mature size. While Harry returned all the Foo puppies he could find, one particularly scrappy pup hid under his car seat and he was unable to return it.

Mouse has been hit by a car and survived, and he went on to take down supernatural enemies while emitting a faint glow. Mouse has shown an aptitude for detecting dark energies and presences, and he has a strong empathy for humans who display no such dark traces. He also shows intelligence greater than that of any other dog, and seems able to plan, anticipate and comprehend abstract concepts, as well as speech.

After Mouse exhibits some puzzling but heroic behaviors, Bob describes additional powers the dog has, such as a warning bark that awoke an entire building full of people during a fire when the actual alarm could not be activated. This bark can also apparently scare away some supernatural, incorporeal beings. If that doesn't work, Mouse can actually physically damage an enemy, usually with his teeth, as has happened with fatal effects during two battles. Also Elaine claims that Mouse is a Temple Dog and is stunned he belongs to Harry. Oddly, one character in Proven Guilty exclaimed with apprehension that Mouse is "not a dog".

Despite growing to massive size, Mouse still defers to Mister, allowing the cat to eat before he does.

This is a character journal. Mouse & Mister belong to Jim Butcher. I am basically having fun playing them.
