Maggie, on the brink of actual death, soul-swapped herself into Mister’s body. Harry’s father faked his death and restyled himself as McAnally; the pub is his way to look after his son.

Lea is Harry’s grandmother. She and Ebenezer had a (possibly magic-related) fling years ago, and they fought over Margaret but eventually Ebenezer made peace with it.
Margaret’s falling out with Ebenezer was because he thought she was spending too much time with the Fae. She was, because she saw something driving Mab insane and wanted to set up her own mother to take Mab’s place - but died before her plan could fully come to fruition. She was trying to protect her family and the world from some kind of evil, and ultimately had to pass that duty on to her son.
