Harry and Elaine Mallory, with the help of the Ordo, set up the Paranet, a method for low level magic users to stay connected on the national scale. Ghost Story reveals that the Paranet has exploded in size since the death of Harry Dresden. Under the guidance of Karrin Murphy and Elaine, the Paranet is attempting to safeguard people with magical abilities from the aggressive incursions of the Fomor. Membership is up to thirty thousand people, and Harry’s home in Chicago has become a virtual fortress to protect magically capable people as part of the greater Chicago Alliance.
