Simon Lewis Clary's human best friend and essentially only friend for about 10 years. Simon only has three main interests; his band, keeping up with everything nerdy, and Clary. He is secretly in love with Clary, though she does not appear to reciprocate those feelings and is oblivious to them until he directly tells her.

He is jealous that Clary shows a larger amount of affection for Jace than himself.

His loyalty to Clary is unwavering even after discovering the relationship the Clary and Jace begin to grow, Simon stays by Clary. He is described as a tall slender 16 year old teenage boy with black shaggy hair and brown eyes. Isabelle Sophia "Izzy" Lightwood She is described as tall and incredibly beautiful, with black hair and eyes.

Isabelle's priorities are simple: family, The Clave, and herself. She is determined to be strong and fight whomever in order to obtain what she wants. She is ruthless when it comes to protecting her family. On the surface she may seem like she is self-absorbed; however, throughout the novel, she grows into a much more complex character.

Alexander Gideon "Alec" Lightwood Alec is the eldest son of the Lightwoods; therefore, he carries much of the responsibility of the siblings. Having just become an adult, Alec is expected to take care of his siblings and look over the Institute while his parents are away. Throughout the book, he is constantly struggling with what is right by his family and friends and what is right by the law.

Alec's self-esteem is very low at the beginning of the novel, which makes him lash out at Clary and other characters. He has black hair and blue eyes. Alec is a closeted homosexual, but comes out to Clary and Isabelle, and claims to be in love with Jace.

He is jealous of Clary over Jace's affection for her. Because of his close relationship with Jocelyn, Clary considers him a father figure. Luke became a werewolf when Valentine betrayed him. He has since become a pack leader twice in Paris and in New York.

Valentine Morgenstern A powerful, evil Shadowhunter, he reappears after years in hiding, during which he was presumed dead. He attempts to steal the Mortal Cup from his former wife, Jocelyn.

He tells Jace and Clary that they are both his and Jocelyn's children. When his name is found imprinted inside Clary's mind, Clary and her allies seek him out to uncover his connection to her past and her mother.

He saved Alec from death when the latter was injured by a Greater Demon.

Hodge Starkweather Isabelle, Alec, and Jace's eccentric tutor, who, at the end, comes out to be a follower of Valentine. An artist, Jocelyn is described as elegant and beautiful, with long red hair darker than Clary's. She hid the Mortal Cup one of the three Mortal Instruments so that no one else could claim it or disclose its location, leaving subtle clues that only her daughter, Clary, would be able to decipher.

Simon has been imprisoned next to Hodge, Sebastian is a spy for Valentine, and Max Lightwood is killed. Until Clary creates a rune that binds a werewolf to a Shadowhunter, allowing them to fight together and share powers.

Magnus Bane brings Jocelyn to Idris, and she and Clary make up while the rest of the Nephilim prepare to fight.

Clary also marks Simon with the Mark of Cain so that he can fight with the rest and secure a place for the vampires in the new world that is being built. The Mortal Instruments series speaks to the outsider in all of us as we try to figure out who we are and how we fit into the world, without letting anyone know how scared we are.

By finding a balance between the worlds of the mundane and the Shadowhunters, Clary defines what sort of adult she will be. Does she belong in the Shadowhunter world? Why do these glamours exist? How do things change for Clary once she can see through them? Do their origins justify the roles they play and the rivalries between them? What does he hope to accomplish by stealing the Mortal Instruments and fighting the Clave now?

Whose best interests does he have in mind? Do you think this is true? Can someone be a Shadowhunter and not believe in God? Do you think the Silent Brothers play up this aura of creepiness?

Does Maryse Lightwood really distrust him? Does this role change as the story progresses? How does the Clave feel about Luke? Why does he inspire such strong feelings in others? In what ways is it helpful to him? Why did he betray his young charges?

Was he just self-serving and bad, or did he do some good with his life? Was he right to fear Valentine more than the Clave? Why do you think they developed different skills?

Will the other Shadowhunters view their abilities as a gift or a curse? Does its origin tell us anything about how Shadowhunters and Downworlders should treat each other? Why is he willing to do these things?

Does he gain anything by doing this?

City Of Bones

How does Clary define family? Where does Jace belong?

Which of the three children—Clary, Jace, and Jonathan—was most affected by Valentine? Do you think this is a fair assessment? Do any other characters act like this?

In the end, does this trait harm or help Clary? What changes his mind? Where did it originally come from? How does it apply to the situation with Valentine? How does it compare to what Clary was thinking when she wrote it? How does this figure into their gifts as Shadowhunters?

Do these chapter headings add to the actions that take place in the chapters they begin? Why do you think the author chose so many quotes from the Bible?
